GAME DAY: Edmonton Oilers



Be very suspicious of these people. Especially since right now they're trying everything they can to get into the playoffs.

Marty Reasoner will know what to do.

I'm a family man- I run a family business. This is my son and my partner, H.W. Plainview.

What truth to use this film alluding to the game. The Oilers are out for blood, There Will Be Blood. Seeing as we are young team though, this is No Country For Old Men. Har har har har.

But no matter what..... we're gonna Paint Your Wagon while we Ride The High Country along with the Wild Bunch.

I just hope the Thrashers don't end up like poor annoying holy roller Eli.

Now THIS was a Western:

Ed Furillo: This guy, Curly, is a true cowboy. One of the last real men. He's untamed, a mustang. It'll do us good to be in his world for a while.
[Curly is approaching them from behind Mitch]
Mitch Robbins: Do us good? Didn't you guys see? The man was hanging the hired help! And, did you notice his eyes? He has crazy eyes. He's a lunatic! We are going into the wilderness being led by a lunatic!
[Mitch notices everyone's terrified faces as Curly is standing directly behind him]
Mitch Robbins: He's behind me, isn't he?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Curly: I crap bigger than you!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Ed Furillo accuses Mitch Robbins of flirting with Bonnie Rayburn]
Mitch Robbins: That was "have a pleasant and restful evening."
Ed Furillo: No, that was "I like your ass. Can I wear it as a hat?"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mitch Robbins: Hi Curly. Killed anyone today?
Curly: The day ain't over yet...

I think the NHL should make hockey more like the old west. It's almost like it: vigilante justice, heroes and villains, ambiguous roles and characters, tales of tragedy and victory.

I mean could you imagine having Kovy, Slava, Little, Toby, Kari, Bogo, Army, and White done up like the Magnificent Seven! Slava has to be Charles Bronson and Kovy is obviously McQueen, and Bogo is Yul Brynner. Little would be James Coburn. Genius.

Big Shooter said...

Lets go Oilers.

I'm finished!

That ending pissed me off SO bad.

Mortimer Peacock said...

Fuck the Oilers.

Big Shooter said...

Easy now... all in good fun. But really, Lets Go Oilers.

Kidding. Kind of.

Dear God I'm so confused.

FrenchCatalogues said...

No, Shooter. I know where you stand on this one. You want your Oilers to win, and I don't hold it against you. I like to win, but I can appreciate the Oilers in the playoffs. Roly is going to give us a run for our money more than likely.

Mortimer Peacock said...

Yes, Rolly will be hard to beat, but still...turncoats get taken out back and walloped.

FrenchCatalogues said...

And Morty you know you like them too. Don't hate, just because they might end up playing your Sharks in the playoffs. Sadly my Kings probably won't be in it.

Big Shooter said...

All I'm agonna say is I've been an Oilers fan since before the Thrash were around. BUT, make no mistake about who my favorite team is. I own a baby blue jersey for goodness sakes (and love it).

That being said, 2 points makes no difference to the Thrash. 2 points makes a HUGE difference to the Oil.

Mortimer Peacock said...

It's not about hate. I don't hate anything NHL-related. It's a matter of principle: if the Sharks were fighting for the 8th playoff spot and they were about to play the Thrashers, I'd still want the Thrashers to win. If the Thrashers victory caused the Sharks to miss out on the playoffs, then so be it. Take pride in the fact that your team knocked a team or two out of the playoff race. If we have to go down in flames, why not take a few teams down with us?

Big Shooter said...

Mighty big words when the Sharks sit at the top of the NHL...

Mortimer Peacock said...

No.

Not at all. I would be bummed if the Sharks missed the playoffs, but at least I could take consolation in the fact that the Thrashers took them down.

Really, I don't mind too much who wins tonight. I just want Kovalchuk to make more progress towards #300.

FrenchCatalogues said...

Woo! Hey let's give it up for an active day at the Chronicle. Come on everybody it's great the we can all piss each other off. I love it. Even the Chroniclers fight. We just need Anonymous, I kinda miss him :(

Razor Catch Prey said...

I can understand you being torn, Shooter. In these situations, I will usually cheer for my team, but after the final buzzer be happy with any outcome. Let's hope for a shootout so both teams get at least a point.

The Magnificent Seven idea is gold. But maybe Dirty Dozen would work better. That way we could work in our top 2 lines, top 2 D pairs, and both Kari and Moose.
