How the hell did I miss this?!?!?!?

The quality of life has dropped a bit in the Province of Alberta as once again, the city of Edmonton screws the pooch.

Somehow, the Edmonton Oilers allowed free agent forward Mike Comrie to sign a one year, $500,000 deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins. For those uninformed, Mike Comrie is better know as Mr. Hilary Duff.
Edmonton allowed this to get away, for a lousy $500K.
I've been to Edmonton many times. They don't exactly have a lot of these on every corner or strolling though the mall. If you get my drift....
Seriously.... $500 grand. That's all it would have taken. I can probably pass the hat around the neighbourhood and get a good chunk of that....
Jesus.... give your head a shake people.....

That's Mr. Hillary Duff, former University of Michigan hockey star, to be specific. Although there's no way in hell I'm rooting for the Pens while Cindy's still playing for 'em. Any other players with hot wives your guys can pick up?

Oh, look. Another Crosby hater. How original.

Anyway, I don't know how you missed it either. I would have probably too if not for the fact my brother called me over his excitement, not about Comrie but about seeing HDuff in the crowd at Consol this year.

Comrie was gone from Edmonton anyway and said he wanted to play for a team with a chance at a playoff run...not my words, his. I still think Edmonton is going to shock the world and make it to the Conference Finals this year.

Man, that Hilary Duff... talk about an exactly equal, but opposite, trajectory as Britney Spears in the looks department. There must have been one day somewhere in, what, like 2002(?) when their slopes crossed at the same y-coordinate, and they have been diverging ever since.
