a love letter to the edmonton oilers

dear greasers:

i know in the past we haven't really gotten along. infact, there have been times i have sincerely disliked you from the very pit of my flaming heart. but in the last few months something inside me has changed.... i'm not sure if it's because you faced the same fate a few years ago (making it to the finals and losing) or if it's because i'm impressed by the way you overcame such adversity to become an incredibly exciting team to watch ---but i was pulling for you this year in a way i never have before....

you are a classy hockey team, edmonton. i know this because you knocked off vancouver last night to allow us a playoff spot, even though we were the ones to send you out to the golfcourse this year. we probably don't deserve how nice you've been to us....

seriously.... that's humbling.

my sincerest gratitude (till next year, of course),

Oh, my.

But yes. Kudos to the kids. I'm going to really hate them in about two or three years.

I think its easy to say such things when the Oil are below us in the standings, next year could be a different story.....
