I feel like a cheerful distraction is needed on a day like today, after witnessing a travesty of justice transpire in Vancouver last night. Somehow, God or Buddha or whoever controls things decided to take holidays this playoffs, and the Canucks are in the Stanley Cup Finals. So while the high, unkempt, hemp wearing population of Vancouver celebrates, the rest of the hockey watching population will try to drown their sorrows. Alas! FlamesNation to the rescue...a post full of things guaranteed to put a smile on your face, even in these dark, dark days.
I watch these when I feel down, or when Canuck fans start to try and change history.
I could hear "SAVE BY RICHTER" all day long. It could have been the Rangers, the Bolsheviks or the Galactic Empire winning the Cup that year, as long as it wasn't Vancouver. And it wasn't.
And more recently, there was game 82 of the 2007-08 season, a game between the Canucks and Flames at then GM Place. Trevor Linden was playing his last game of his overrated career, and this happened...
But that only starts to scratch the surface...there has to be other things that can make you feel better.
Distractions Are Fun
What's just as good as Vancouver fails? Oilerfails!
That was game one. Game seven was better...
And this one is a special request from our own commenter Justin Azevedo, because he really has been wanting to see this picture. I don't ask questions...
That picture may very well be the worst of all the Oiler fails in the last 15 years. How they never took more heat for this is beyond me. Save the "comfortable in their own skin" argument too.
Now I'm just reaching for things to put on here, but I want to guarantee every single person who views this post will get some sort of enjoyment out of it. So, sneezing monkey here we come...
This one makes me feel better 100 times out of 100 times. Only the first 30 seconds are necessary.
And now the grand finale...
Well I feel better. I was supposed to write a Flames article. Instead I wrote this.
