Take A Break

from the Edmonton Journal,

It’s a 24/7 job being an Oilers fan. Any fool can see that, and I passed that ineptitude test long ago.

Could be for a day, a night, a week, might be as brief as skipping a period of the out-of-town broadcast to walk the dog, for the true believers among you.
But it’s important. For the love of Gretzky, look away, take a backward step, take a breath, get some perspective.
