Half-assed Sunday patter

This is Lowetide, an Oilers blogger.

A true measure of a blogger is the sum of their blog posts when the team sucks eggs. Apropos: did I mention how much I like Lowetide this season? Everytime I take a leak this guy's got a post up that's insightful, relevant and full of colourful stories about players that are older than my dad.

Meanwhile, I've been dutifully watching the games, usually from behind the hands covering my face, and last night's matchup against the Kings pretty much made me lose my mind. Not a poorly played game, either. Just not good enough. A soul-crushing metaphor for life itself, perhaps? Anyway, I realized that I have an unfortunate habit of yelling non-stop obscenities at the TV, which doesn't carry over well when I'm watching webcasts at work.

Tonight I'm likely going to miss the game against Anaheim under the guise of a steak-dinner date, but I'm doing this as a preventative superstitious measure to turn the team's fortunes around. The way I see it, I'm doing whatever it takes as a fan to make this team win again. Are you?

PS: I hope Kevin Lowe flicks Brian Burke in the testicles with a copy of the new CBA.

He might as well, 'cause come draft day, Burke is going to make Lowe his bitch.

Been really disappointed in the CinO coverage this season. It seems like you guys have frankly given up.

I know that MacT has given up. I know we as a collective fanbase have given up on the season. But goddammit, the oilogosphere should not give up when it comes to providing analysis & snark.

Don't throw in the towel, guys. It's much more fun having you around.

Without CinO, a loss is just another slap in the face. With CinO, we can at least get another giggle from the latest whimsical musings of Mike Wxxxxs, Chris!1!1! or Pleasure Motors.

Give us a little sauce, boys. Don't give up already. The season's just started.

lol @ LT picture. I always pictured him as looking like Andy Griffith.

The guy's like Neo. He doesn't see people like us normal folk do...he sees them as stat figures! :)

P.S. He must be retired or must have the easiest job ever to post all those blogs.

I would be happy with either or both.

Heh, I love how the poor guy becomes a cult figure among the hockey nerds.

I always thought Atticus Finch. Don't ask me why.

Where's the big... COOOOOOOOOOGGGGGGSSSSSSSS

Man there's taking the night off and there's just disappearing from the face of the earth...

And Hemsky with the first goal and the shootout winner. We needed him to take a step forward, I think, and he did. Cogliano's playing so well that it's just a pity that the Calder is bound to go to either Kane or Toews.

For all those Oiler supporters who have detailed reasons about why the Oil suck ass this year and why Lowe and MacT should be sent to High Level ... it's fucking October! Cry the blues in January. Commit seppuku after the the All-Star snoozefest.

Would you rather be Ottawa? Everybody's golden boys until it matters, when your testicles shrink to Smarties size?

Have Oiler fans no stones? They give up in October??? There isn't even any snow on the ground!

There's snow in Nunavut...

My theory is that LT is secretly Jim Matheson, frustrated after decades of being the team's mouthpiece and trying to get out some of the love of journalism and prose which drove him to that business in the first place.

Well, it's a theory.

Apparently the Oilers like steak dinners.

Now you have to go out for the steak-dinner date each game.

Eyeris said...

Your steak-dinner date also propelled the Red Sox to another World Series title. It's like magic!

well the oilers are 5-7 now after taking care of the quacks...

thats pretty good for a crappy team lol...

what really fucking makes me laugh is the way those twats on hockey's future boards keep making up lines then posting them in some kind of a cosmic circle jerk...don't they know we pay a coach to do all of that for us?????

LOLOLOLOL

I'm not sure if you meant "we pay MacTavish to keep making up lines then post them in some kind of a cosmic circle jerk", but I'm finding it way too easy to believe that's exactly what he does.

Time to photoshop more pictures of blenders onto CrackT's head, I think.
