Attention: Kyle Brodziak Fans

I'm sure all of us remember where we were when Edmonton Oilers forward Kyle Brodziak scored his first NHL goal. But memories fade...and why run the risk of forgetting when for a measly 25 clams, you could own this piece of hockey history?

That's right, folks. It's the official lineup card from the Oilers' March 17th defeat at the hands of the mighty St. Louis Blues. Despite Brodziak's first period heroics, this would become Edmonton's 10th straight loss in a streak that would eventually stretch to 12. (Say, how's that Ryan Smyth trade working out?) The card is signed by Craig MacTavish, and suitable, as they say, for framing or wrapping fish.

If you'd like to commemorate this important moment in Oilers' history, why not head over to the NHL's Auction Network site and place a bid? Only two days remain in the auction, so you'd better act fast if you want to outbid Mrs. Brodziak.

I remember where I was. I'm from Edmonton but I was in Austin for SXSW. Best timed vacation ever. I'm the kind of guy who would have watched many of those fuckin' games. Instead we had fun picking up the odd Texas paper over the 10 days we spent there and watching the losses pile up. After a while it got so ridiculous that all we could do was laugh while crying, and think back a quick 300 days to when we were (almost) on top of the world. Cheer up Bruins fan look what can happen in 300 fuckin' days, there's still hope. How's that Thornton trade working out ?
Heh heh. As to the the auction, I think I'll pass.
Hilarious post BTW.
