Hockey Season Is Officially Back. Fans At UFC 215 Get A “Let’s Go Oilers” Chant Going
Listen, ladies. You walk into Oil country and you square off in a “technical chess match”, you’re gonna get boo’d all the way to Saskatchewan. That’s just the way it works. It takes a lot to hold Edmonton’s attention these days. They’ve got the best hockey player in the world to look forward to in less than a month and they’ve got their eyes set on the Cup this year. Sorry if Amanda Nunes vs Valentina Schevchenko just doesn’t live up to that hype. It’s not that they don’t understand what they’re watching. It’s that they know exactly what they’re watching, and it’s boring at shit. That’s not a knock against women’s MMA. Just this particular fight. I’m just saying that if you want to battle in Albert, it better be a battle in Alberta.
Those fans didn’t pay to see a dance. They went out to Rogers Place with an insatiable thirst for blood. Gotta love hockey fans.
P.S. – What’s up with Joe Rogen saying the fans are drunk as if that’s a bad thing? Sorry, Joe. Didn’t realize being black out drunk on a Saturday night was frowned upon. Fucking narc.
