      Maybe rewind superbowl 33 where elway had his curtaincall winning back-to-back "ships" after a CAREER of making the big game but then getting ABSOLUTELY housed and burned down . rinse then REPEAT. Elway threw over 310 yards and bowed out with a superbowl mvp. League mvp. Two superbowl wins and five trips to the game. Now he took the same FRANCHISE to another SUPER BOWL and no surprise got there ass kicked! Then took them to super 50 and won. The golden bowl since it was the 50th$$!!

      If you guys could, the Belgium-Japan World Cup match from 2018 is the greatest soccer match I've ever seen.
      While we're on the subject, how big was the match between South Korea and Germany?

      You guys DID pay attention to the World Cup, right?

    Something tells me the oilers didn't worry about that game for too much longer.

                          I was at that game, sitting in the nosebleed section. My seat was behind Evans on a direct line running thru him and Grant Fuhr. I saw the shot all the way in. It was glorious. Only about half the crowd was still there since a lot of people left before the third period started.

                                  Thank-you SB Nation. This is really good. I'm the guy who scored the second goal and won that faceoff and I definitely knew what was going to happen. Daryl Evans and I practiced that faceoff every day and that day it worked. Read The Trauma Code at and get the more cool details of what went down after the game and on the flight back to Edmonton

One of the things you notice if you watch the tape from this game is just how awful goaltending was in the early 80s compared to today. Granted it was the 80s Oilers but Mario Lessard looks like some guy they just picked out of the stands and asked 'hey you wanna play goalie?'
