00:00 - 00:03The 2020 NHL Playoffs have officially kicked off.
00:03 - 00:05The NHL has established two hubs here:
00:05 - 00:07in Edmonton and Toronto.
00:08 - 00:12The Oilers have matched up against the 12th place Chicago Blackhawks,
00:12 - 00:15and we've invited you here to discuss the renewal of your Season Tickets.
00:17 - 00:19This series shouldn't be a problem.
00:19 - 00:21Mcdavid and Draisaitl will dispatch the Hawks quite easily.
00:24 - 00:26My friend.
00:27 - 00:28The Oilers...
00:30 - 00:33The Oilers were just eliminated by the Hawks in Game 4.
00:33 - 00:38The reffing was biased against them for the first few games, but ultimately they didn't deserve to win with their half-hearted play.
00:52 - 00:58Everyone except Kevin, Bob, and Ken, leave.
01:18 - 01:23This City, these fans, we've had enough of this constant disappointment!
01:25 - 01:28Oh God, I feel like I'm having a full fledged meltdown because of these idiots.
01:28 - 01:31If this team would just play responsibly...
01:31 - 01:33We would be off to the next round!
01:33 - 01:37I feel like a battered house wife that keeps coming back to the Trailer Park...
01:37 - 01:39Because my drunk husband keeps promising he won't hit me this time!
01:39 - 01:42My friend, you cannot say offensive things like that these days!
01:42 - 01:46Fuck your empathy, and Fuck the Oilers!
01:46 - 01:48My friend, we all KNEW this year would be a Development Year.
01:49 - 01:52Every year is a "Development Year" with these clowns.
01:53 - 01:55"Sell'm Hope!" That's what the marketing department says....
01:56 - 01:58and every year I eat it up like a Pig at the Trough.
01:58 - 02:00I've been stuck in this same shit since the early 90s!
02:00 - 02:03Year after year, we're sold hope and delivered disappointment.
02:04 - 02:08And every year, they keep finding new ways to do it!
02:08 - 02:12Yeah, we won that one series against the Stars in '96 on that beautiful Marchant Goal...
02:14 - 02:17But they came back and kicked our asses for the rest of the 90s!
02:17 - 02:23Even when they do something nice like that outdoor game in 2003, they play half-heartedly and let us down creatively!
02:26 - 02:29Maybe the problem is me, maybe I just care too much.
02:30 - 02:34 But is that really a bad thing? I like Hockey!
02:34 - 02:36It just becomes too much...
02:40 - 02:42Then there's 2006...
02:43 - 02:47The team caught Lightning in a Bottle.
02:48 - 02:53They beat Detroit, San Jose, and Anaheim, all better on paper!
02:53 - 02:56Only to lose to Doug Weight and the 'Canes in Game 7 of the Finals!
02:56 - 02:59Why? Because Pronger distracted the room telling them he was leaving the team.
03:00 - 03:03And we all know it's because his wife found out he slept with that A-Channel chick!
03:04 - 03:07It's okay. Nobody thinks you're a whore.
03:14 - 03:18To this day I still have visions of our dumbass defenceman injuring our Star Goalie.
03:18 - 03:23And Ty Conklin losing us the game by coughing up the puck with 30 seconds remaining...
03:25 - 03:28These days though, it's different.
03:30 - 03:35The biased reffing against Canadian teams, Game 7 in 2017 against Anaheim, now this.
03:40 - 03:46And nobody seems to care or even listen; and in spite of all my anger...
03:46 - 03:49we all know I will be back next year.
03:52 - 03:56- because this team inspires Hope.
