30 Days To Go….

So ya, things are not good in Oil Country. The Eskimos were taken down in Calgary yesterday and the Oilers, well, truly this is all just one big embarrassment for a once proud franchise. It’s been stated and it needs to be repeated, the ENTIRE Management team has to go.  Last season, the Vancouver Canucks missed the playoffs for the first time in 6 seasons. That along with horrible management decisions and guess what they did? Cleaned house and brought in a new President, GM and Coach. Now, they look a hell of a lot better than they did a year ago. Remember when Katz was in Seattle? Ya, maybe the team up and moving to Seattle in exchange for an expansion franchise may not be such a bad idea after all. You know we would get new management for sure. Ya I know, it’s not happening that way, but still, a guy can dream right?…. Well, Afternoon Delight came and went. So did thew weather, which kept  quite a few people away, and that’s understandable. many did make it in just the same, and a big thank you goes out to them. A big thank you also to Kim Quibell & Scarlet Bjornson who came and helped out for the day. Now we brace for the busy days ahead in the form of catering, daily lunch and hot school lunches. We could use some help, so if you know anyone that wants to earn some extra cash before Christmas, send them my way….Speaking of Christmas, we are just a month away from Christmas Eve!!!!!! So for that I am launching 23 days of Christmas Tunes. Starting today with Tom Petty. I don’t care, I’m putting it out there, Merry Christmas!!!

Be Better Oilers: So I’m at the Oilers game last night watching my Canucks. Once again, the Oilers play them tough, but not tough enough. Canucks win. The 6pm start was annoying to me, but getting home a bit earlier was kind of nice. Looking around though, it was weird. There were the usual pockets of Canucks fans which always come out in force here in Edmonton. The mood was different though. Even then usual heckling between Oiler & Canuck fan was at a murmur. It’s almost as if Oiler fan was kind of depressed about the state of the team, especially with what the Flames are doing and Canuck fan just feels sorry for them. Very weird. Well, the good news is, that was the last game here in Edmonton this season for Vancouver and they won’t meet again until the last game of the season in Vancouver. So you know, there’s that.

Isaac Farrah Watch: Another win for the Saints last night, 8-2 over Lloydminster. The boys are off until next Wednesday when Drayton Valley comes to town    Isaac’s Stats: 14 GP 4G 6A. 10Pts +11

Off To Rexall Place: So once again, I’ll be making my annual pilgrimage to Rexall Place to see the Oilers and the Canucks thanks to my friend Randy. It will be interesting to see and hear in person the feeling towards the Oilers. Things are pretty bad, and it’s a different kind of bad. See, the Flames are winning and looking good, and they were supposed to be in worse shape than the Oilers. There will be no change here in Oil Country. It’s not just the coach, we all know that. It goes way up the ladder, and it all rests on Darryl Katz really. Just keep packing Rexall folks, if it ain’t broken and it makes money….Oh, and did you all see the dump of snow Buffalo got hit with? Jeez, kind of makes winter here look a bit more welcoming.

All They Want Is Their Pot Bellied Pig For Christmas: The  Kropp family of Strathcona County is rightfully upset today. The county ruled that their pet pot belly pig Eli can not be a pet and therefore can’t be in their home even though Eli is considered a trained therapy animal. Thanks to a meddling neighbor that created the issue, Eli has to go to a farm. Good thing they weren’t asking for a Hippopotamus for Christmas. Good luck Kropp family, hope it all works out for you.

Welcome back famiglia, I hope you took some time yesterday to remember the vets. I took in the services in St.Albert, and truth be told I have never been more annoyed. As I was waiting for the service to start, there was a family of three beside me, all adults. The mom, dad and daughter were engaging in some basic chit chat about whatever. Than as the parade started I noticed something kind of odd. They wouldn’t shut up. Not for one second. They did shut their mouths long enough for O’Canada to be sung, but then they went back to just nattering on about nonsense. Some of their comments were whining about the cold, some were whining about needing a drink. All in all they were just annoying. I found it disrespectful and it was all I could do to not tell the to shut the hell up or go home. It’s aa sad stated when three adults can’t go to a Remembrance Day service and show a little bit of gratitude and respect and just keep their mouths shut for 45 minutes. Maybe I’m making a big deal about it, but really, I don’t think I am. Okay, griping time is over, time to get a busy day started. See you at noon.
