Do or Die

So as I am sure you have all figured out by now I am a die hard Oilers fan. This playoff run they have had has been amazing. The have done things that no one gave them a chance in doing. They started off by disposing of the NHL's leading team (Detroit Red Wings) in 6 games, then after being down 2 games to none against the San Jose Sharks they came back and won the series by winning 4 straight games. They then finished off the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in 5 games to win the Western Conference Championship.
And now here they are....down 3 games to 1 to a very good hockey team. History is not on their side as they try to win tonight to force a game 6. Will they do it? I sure hope so! But if they don't I will still be the same die hard Oilers fan I have always been, I will still pay for the hockey package every season so I can watch my beloved team play each and every game. Only 1 team in the history of sports has come back from a deficit like this in a championship series and that was 54 years ago. Could the Oilers do it? Sure they could. Will they? I don't know. What I do know is that come game time tonight at 8pm I will be in front of my TV with my jersey and hat on, I will drink my Canadian beer and I will cheer them on. If it all ends tonight I will still be an Oiler fan and I will be proud of what they did to get where they are now. No one gave them a chance to get this far and they proved them all wrong.

GO OILERS GO!!!

It is so funny because now when I see them in the news I stop and read the article to see what they are up to just because of you. LOL

Is it possible to be an oiler fan through you? LOL

Sorry - Jeremy cheers for the Oilers and I can't bring myself to do it. Whenever Carolina scores, I cheer! How can I help myself - my old Flame boy Commodore is on their team! I say you're either an Oilers fan or a Flames fan - there's no room for both....sorry!
Good luck tonight but I think we are going to take the cup!

Looks like your team is another game ahead. I agree with Tammy I find it hard to cheer for the Oil. I do try for Chris's sake.

Well, I am for Edmonton. Yes, I've been a Flames Fan since I was a kid, but I also lived in Edmonton for 3 years and I loved it there. So I am all behind the Oilers! I think they can do it! They need to start SHOOTING the puck though!
