I feel like I did when I was a little kid and my Dad came home with Tigers or Red Wings tickets. Tonight, the baseball playoffs begin and Thursday the NHL season starts.
I believe I was telling Sark last night at the bar, how despite my propensity to squander money, notwithstanding the $12 Comerica Park, chicken fingers, horrification I was going to start an austerity program. Hmmm, I’m afraid that will have to wait.
You see, I had my fantasy hockey draft last night. I was able to get Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Dylan Larkin. I woke up this morning so excited that I got on NHL dot com just to peruse the new merchandise. I didn’t plan on purchasing anything, you understand. Then I ran across this.
What was I to do?
This was unfair trade practices on the part of the NHL and the Edmonton Oilers. Orange in my favorite color. Royal blue/purple are a close second. I’ve been awaiting the arrival of McDavid for over a year. McDavid was my first draft pick on my fantasy team. I have tickets to the Wings – Oilers game. Couple the aforementioned with my excitement, and well, austerity will be there tomorrow.

You are gonna have to get on a plane fly to Canada by tickets and a hotel and all that other stuff just to wear it….wait till you see what it really cost!
Good point! I’ll have my Probert or Konstantinov jersey on for the Edmonton game at the Joe. My hypocrisy knows no bounds.
