If you want to feel old, watch the Oilers.
If you want to feel even older, fall asleep during an Oilers game and know that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins stayed up later than you did.
He also scored a goal in his first game back from shoulder surgery, which catalyzed the Oilers to a 4-goal comeback and shootout win.
Thanks #TeamRNH. Next time can you do that before, say, 11:30 PM Eastern?
#TeamHallsy also had a goal because Amanda bought a shirt with his number on it yesterday. It’s like a gift with purchase (crooked hat not included).
Of course, #TeamEbs had the shootout winner. Not to brag.
The Oilers new coach, Dallas Eakins, stood behind the bench and freakishly resembled the 10th (and best) Doctor Who.
Now to the fun stuff. Thanks to everyone who sent this video of the Oilers Amazing Race. Someday I will be on the real Amazing Race, and eliminated on day 1 because I cannot drive a stick shift. It’s a recurring nightmare of mine.
The Oilers required no such skills… just a stretch SUV to deliver them.
Horrible decision, re-think immediately.
Not that I’m #TeamHallsy anyway, but obviously we’d make a terrible pair on the roads. At least Yakupov is a worse driver than we are.
That’s a wall.
Hey, look what is an actual thing and not just #TeamShultz! It’s the other Schultz (Nick), though.
Our #TeamSchultz is here, demonstrating horrendous 80’s movie-inspired karaoke skills. I qualify for ALL of these teams.
Ryan’s into it. He’s almost got jazz hands there.
Meanwhile #TeamEbs says, “I’ll just be over here, wearing my boyfriendsweater.”
And Sam Gagner replies, “Got nothing on my Hobbitsweater.”
This one’s for Chuck, plus Lindsay (#TeamGagner – can we just call it #TeamSam?) and Alison (#TeamSchultz). Good luck ever getting produce, ladies. Self-checkout is not for the faint of heart. I’d feel better if Sam wore a cage 100% of the time to protect his broken jaw.
There is, of course, a moment in this event where WUYS took over planning and art direction. That would be the Paddleboard Competition.
So welcome back Nuge, to the game, and the Oilers to the thrill of victory. May you be disturbingly adorable all season.
Really, stop it. You’re 12.
Keep it up, Oilers TV and you could make a run at Blackhawks TV for our favorite team marketing tool. Rubber duckies are a good start, but you’ve got a long way to go to top Joey the Junior Reporter.
