Thats too funny. I always have that urge when the Oilers are up by a goal with a minute to go and Salo in the net. Ive got the remote in my hand because if and when they do tie it up I can shut off the TV so I dont have to watch the other team celebrate and I dont have to watch the replay of Salo swimming around clueless.

I like to predict the score before every game and I never pick a shut out for either team. I usually like to bet against the Oilers because I have such terrible gambling luck that I lose 5 bucks and the Oilers win.

I always wear the same Jersey to every game. When they win its the jersey. When they lose I blame it on the person or people that I came with to the game.

I just started this one this year. When we play against Comrie I bring out his bobblehead and let everyone kick the crap out of it during the game. Its rather refreshing actually. Did I ever mention I dispise Comrie? We are presently undefeated in games against the defector from Communist Edmonton. Therefore it works!

Guilty of this one too. Especially last year with our brutal power play. It brings about an odd emotion if the Oilers squeak in a shorty suddenly and I miss it.

The Oilers scored, damn I missed it, but they scored.

The Oil never seem to win

whenever I wear my jersey so I just leave it hanging in the closet now. I think the curse exists because I haven't yet decided on a player to put on the back.

mine is pretty weird though. anytime I drink molson Canadian Oilers win or Tie 90% of the time. But if I do drink Blue then oilers will lose either on regulation or OT. NOw you know what's my fav drink.
