The Edmonton Oilers were coming off a shutout, and one eager fan just wanted to see them score Tuesday night. So, the fan showed up to Edmonton’s matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a handwritten sign and a pledge: He’d chug his beer every time the Oilers scored.
We’re not sure if (or when) former Boston Bruin Milan Lucic and his Edmonton teammates saw the sign, but they certainly played like a team hell-bent on getting this man inebriated.
That’s because the Oilers went out and scored seven goals — including one from Lucic in the second period — en route to a 7-2 rout of Columbus.
That means our man had to chug seven full cups of beer, and if we believe this Jackets fan, he was up to the task.
We obviously don’t condone public drunkenness, but this is quite the effort.
The Oilers face one of the best defensive teams in the NHL on Thursday in the Nashville Predators, so expect a bit more sober crowd at Rogers Place.
