A State of Shock / Edmonton Oilers Version
Life's not all rosy around the Oilers Nation as of late. The Oilers have had a couple of games lately that could have been the Oilers first win of 2010, but they choked instead. Several times over.
The more I talk to people around town, the more depressed these people are getting. "Oilers suck!", I'm told. True. That's a little hard to argue. They do suck.
See, since the team has went on a two month skid, the average fans are not watching the games anymore. They don't care and nor should they. It's hard to get pumped up for a game when you know they are going to get killed. Like the Chicago game coming up this Tuesday. The only question will be not whether the Hawks can beat the Oilers, but rather by what goal margin will be when the Hawks mop the floor with them. How exciting is that? Unless you are a Hawks fan, not very.
I think that once the Oilers pull together a win, we will see some smiles back on peoples faces. For the most part, I think we all accept the fact that we are going for the Dive For Five. So losing comes with that. But to not have one single win in 2010 is pretty lousy. Just one win every so often would be nice. At least they have been trying hard.
The season started off so great. Remember how great that was? I was such a gloating jack ass, spreading my Oilers glory with everyone I know on Facebook and Twitter. Ahh... those were good times. Now where are we? I'm begging for one stinking win. Sad.
The Edmonton Oilers right now are GP50 W16 L28 OTL6 PTS38
I'm curious what the PPV numbers were like for each game this season. I'm going to guess that there has been a slow decline in viewers. I still watch every game, but I know a lot of people that simply are not paying for anymore games this season. They have had enough.
So what's the point of all this Ray? I don't know. *shrugs shoulders*
I guess I'm just in shock.
