My anti-beard, hat and Whalers jersey combo finally ran out of mojo after seven straight wins. Frankly, I blame the loss entirely on Sacamano at Battle of Alberta, who has been dancing all over the Oiloglosphere, practically goading the Hockey Gods into giving the Ducks a win. Make sure to check out his poem on Covered in Oil. It's particularly priceless.
In an effort to offset the bravado, I am going silent for the next few days. No comments or posts will be Oilers related. Hopefully, I'll see you all on the other side.
And before anyone asks, yes, I realize this flies in my earlier assertions about rationality in sports. And no, I don't care about the inconsistency.
