Oh totally, was actually joking to a buddy today about now that it's 0-3, I almost hope we don't beat up the Ducks too much the rest of the way so they're fresh for Edmonton if it comes to it. It'll be quite the transformation to see how quickly Kesler goes from the most punchable face in the league, to his antics becoming hilarious when he's doing it to the Greasers.

...things would immediately revert back to boiling cauldron of hate levels for him the second the series ended. But watching Kesler being Kesler to McLotteryballs & Co for an entire series would be pretty entertaining

Haha thanks, wish I could take credit, but that goes to Ryan Pinder on the Fan 960 morning show. He's got the best McDavid chirps. I was also a big fan of "Collar McBroken" last year

The 18+ thing is because it's a beer promo. They can't give them away to minors.

I remember going to my first MLB game when I was 13 or so being pretty crushed I couldn't get a Twins towel because it was 21+.

That being said I thought it was a pretty cool promo. Seeing them all light up to start the pre-game presentation was pretty neat and I thought well executed.

Saw a car with a Flames flag on one window, and an Oilers flag on the other today.

I don't take a hardline on having "fallback" teams when your team has been eliminated, but christ not a direct rival, and not when both are still in the damn playoffs.

My wife said when Calgary is out we should cheer for the Oilers because that's patriotic and "Alberta strong."

I told her to pack her #### and leave. She thought I was joking.

Cheering for both the Flames and the Oilers/Canucks is the worst.

If the Flames are your #1 team than the Oilers have to be your enemy #1.

Anything else goes against nature.

In my opinion, all other Canadian teams can never win again. Let the Flames bring the cup back to Canada.

Seems like the default response for some people and it is like nails on a chalkboard to me. So grating. Usually they drag out the I a little bit. "RIIIght?!" Blech
It also pisses me off to no end how people will draw out/add syllables to the last word of a sentence (sort of the same way they'll say "riiighhttt??" and with the same sort of intended effect).

"So I was walking over to my caaaarrrr"

I just had the worst crap of my life.

Anyone ever cry from the burning sensation? Wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. Felt like Satan himself morphed into a ghost pepper and tried to escape my anus.

Yeah. I'm going to go ahead and ask that you call 811 next time instead of telling us.
