Oilers lose game 4... and now will lose series in 5

Well...

With the series on the line, all the "powerful" Oilers offense could muster is 1 goal. Way to find a way win guys!

As far as I'm concerned, this series is over. On wednesday night, game 5 will be played, and I will be in front of my TV watching... the DVD's of the first season of Rescue Me. The fact is, the Oilers will not win 3 games in a row. They won't even bring this series back to Edmonton. They can't. Not with their offense as sloppy as it is right now. So, here it is: Congratulations to Carolina on their upcoming Stanley Cup win and to Rod Brind'OverratedSucker on his Conn Smythe trophy. But let's never forget: in their first series, they had to poke out Saku Koivu's eye to win. Against Buffalo, they needed the Sabres to lose 4 defensemen in the series to win. And against Edmonton, they had to wait for Roloson, the backbone of the team, to be out of the series to take control of it. So you know what, I take back those congratulations. This is a Stanley Cup they will have won but never merited.

I'm done talking about hockey here until the Free Agency period begins. Next post will deal with England's world cup chances.

See you later kids.

Dwarf out

Oh Dwarf, ye of little faith...
Yesterday, Japan-Australia, Japan leads 1-0 with 10 mins to go in the game. It's pretty much in the bag (you know how football goes, 1-0 is like leading 2-0 in hockey...)
Well, Australia came back and not only tied the game, but won it 3-1.
If the Ozzies can do it, so can the Oilers. They need to win 2 in a row, which is acheivable, and then you have the 7th game... So the plan is, you win at Carolina, and you build up hope and confidence, you come back home and you win the next one. Eeeeaaasy. Captain Canada will come through again. And while the Oilers trash the Canes in front of their worthless fans 4-1, you will be watching some crap-ass "Rescue Me"...

But let's move on to England. Yes, they need to win the World Cup. And although they were a bit shaky in their first game, they still won (and it's always a good sign when you play bad and you still manage to win...)

Now, they have their destiny in their own hands: because Sweden only equalised with Trinidad&Tobaggo, if England wins agaisnt T&T, then they are through to the next round...

I just hope England will meet up with Germany. Since Germany will probably finish 1st in its pool, it seems unlikely both teams will meet, though. if they both finish first, then they can only meet in the semifinals...

Anyway, Dwarf and The Dick, you will be happy to know that our Chelsea friends have been playing tremendous foot ball in the tournament so far:
- Cole, Lampard and Terry were among England's best performers
- Crespo and Drogba both scored in the Cote d'Ivoire vs. Argentina game (and what a good game it was)
- Cech blanked the US in Czech Republic's 3-0 trashing of the US (and guys, this seems to be my first points in the pool...)
- Essien was outstanding in Ghana's 2-0 defeat to Italy. Ghana had a few chances to equalize and the game was very good.

In fact, most games I have seen so far have been very entertaining. If you can't enjoy World Cup football, then you will probably never enjoy football...

So today, Brazil is playing. Let's hope those overrated suckers (who will unfortunately probably win the Cup anyway) lose against Croatia.

If England doesn't win, then i think I would like to see the Czech Republic win. That would be cool. If not, then COte d'Ivoire or one of the African nations (they never won it). Or France. If not, then Italy.
Screw Spain, screw Netherlands and screw (although a bit less) Germany.

So go on England, and go on Oilers.

Peace out.

I read your blog in disbelief this morning. What kind of a so called 'fan' are you? One who throws in the towel before there is blood to mop up from the floor? One who changes the channel before the fat lady sings?

Anyway ye of little faith, forget hockey (I mean, who the hell is Stanley anyway) and get your TV set tuned in to 'the beautiful game' as the world cup gets underway (and I am refering to 'real football' not the all singing and dancing in lycra American version).

I will be leaping around the living room (or pub), sweating, crying, yelling at the amazingly biased ref, kicking the sofa, and praying to the football gods in the sky during every England game until the final whistle is blown. If the game goes to penalties I will need 'gas and air' and tranquilisers to get me through and if we play against Germany I will be humming the dambusters tune with the rest of them.

So get the face paints and flags out and never ever give up hope until the battle is over. Keep your fingers crossed for Rooney's broken bones and lets hope that Beckhams hair doesn't get messed up.

For all of you out there, the "Babe" is Veillotron's babe.

Babe, your text brought tears to my eyes. Bravo.

By the way, I forgot to mention that Robben scored the only goal for the Dutchs...
In fact, Chelsea players have scored 12% of the total World Cup goals scored so far - not too shabby!!

Veillotron and Babe...

If I have made the decision to not watch game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals, it's because that is what's best for my health. After last night, my TV is now imprinted with a nice scratch and I need a new remote control cuz mine is shattered. I can't watch anymore of this without becoming dangerous.

And anyway, I plan to turn my full attention now to Beckham's bunch. Michael Owen had a rough outing in the first game, and he needs my full support.

to dwarf,

hang in there buddy, i know the feeling.....remember when mcnabb chose the biggest stage of his career to make 2 beautiful pass in the superbowl? too bad those passes were thrown to rodney harrison....yep, i know all too well the powerless feeling of watching your beloved team turn into a bunch of pantsies....those damn



finally, i expected big things from japan...bloody hell, losing a 1-0 lead in 10 min...that's like losing a football game on the last kickoff after a touchdown, having it return for a TD, and have a 2 points convert on your arse.....

those damn japs, first WWII, now this.........
