1.) Post lots of half naked pictures of Joe Thornton/Vincent Lecavalier. When asked how this would make me feel better, the submitter (Courtney) replied that it would make her feel better no matter what, and would probably make her forget all about the Oilers. I don't think that's going to work.
2.) Steph of No Pun Intended says that she " cried and drank a lot" when the Wings were losing, and made sure I did not forget the most important part of all: "oh and swearing. Don't forget about swearing." She also watched many AHL games, but that one is not feasable for me, especially since the only local hockey team (The Portland Winterhawks) is crappy beyond belief.
3.) Matt says that I should tell the Wild to eff off and become a dedicated Twins fan/baseball fan instead. Since the Twins do not have an actual starting rotation, I feel like this would just cause me more pain and stress.
4.) My roommate told me to go and hit something or be otherwise violent/aggressive, but with my arm messed up, that's maybe not a good idea.
5.) Several of my MN friends suggested that I transfer to MN somewhere where there are many other hockey teams to watch besides the Wild. Courtney says I should come to Edmonton and watch
Any other suggestions? I feel like transferring schools might be a lot of work, but I'm open to anything else that will help me to dull the pain of this horrible month of March in hockey. Like Elise said "This whole Gaby as captain thing isn't exactly working out too hot. It seemed smart for about, oh, 1 game." She speaks words of truth, and she also writes them. Check out Wild.com or 18,568 Reasons Why for a link to her story posted on Wild.com! AMAZING stuff, folks.
Up next: The Devils. I will not try to compete with the -Ookies since they have a fantastic blog over at Interchangable Parts, but I will definitely make some kind of rude comments about Martin Brodeur (because it's SO easy), and maybe Zach Parise because he still owes me a fruitbasket. Boxworthy has fallen down on the job...I don't actually have anything intelligent to say about the team right now, so I'll just refer you to them and make fun of people.
A little shameless self promotion: be sure and check out Hockey Blog in Canada. Teebz gives some nice shoutouts, and mine is hilarious.
