Oh, Canada

So, we all know that Canadians like hockey.  Many of them, including this one, might like it a little too much.  But what about one guy, who sent a text into the sports radio show last night regarding his opinion on the possibility of Edmonton beating their rival Calgary tomorrow night so that they don't make the playoffs.  Said the Edmonton fan:

"If I knew that giving up 1 testicle would guarantee a win for the Oilers tomorrow night against the Flames, further pushing the Flames from their chances at making the playoffs, I would do it.  Every day, all day."

Now, I know that people exaggerate on a lot of things, and maybe this guy is just trying to be funny.  But with the situation the Oilers are in (Last place hockey for 3 straight years and sell-out crowds for 4 or 5 years straight) you know that a lot of the fans aren't thinking very clearly.

I'm rooting for the Oilers, but at the same time, I don't have any surgeries planned for anytime soon.
