Allan Mitchell from the great Oilers blog Lowetide was mentioned in a book that I am reading right now.
The book is called Hockey Superstitions by Andrew Podnieks. Great little book if you want some light reading.
Lowetide's part in the book is called Stan The Man (page 30). Podnieks writes that whenever Lowetide would put Stan Weir's picture on his blog between 2006 and 2008, the Oilers had a remarkable 14-2 record in the 16 times he posted that picture during the playoffs.
Crazy stuff huh? I had no idea.
Cool to see Lowetide's name come up in the book. It really blew my mind that it was in there. See what happens when you read kids?
