The Steve Austin Line

Steve Austin was a pop culture icon in the 1970s. He was the main character on the TV show The Six Million Dollar Man, which aired for five years (1973-1978), but watching reruns in the 1980s was when I fell in love with it. Austin, played by Lee Majors, was awesome.

He was a NASA astronaut severely injured in a crash and it cost $6 million to rebuild him. His right arm, both legs and left eye were replaced with bionic implants which made his speed, strength and vision far superior to the average human.

Game Day

We love HOME games; have Liquor Depot deliver in under an hour. Click, pick, sit back and watch the game. 

The Edmonton Oilers have a three-game winning streak versus the St.Louis Blues. It might seem insignificant, however, I believe it is the ideal illustration of how this organization has finally turned the corner. Over the past five and three-quarter seasons, the Blues have accumulated 563 points. Only Chicago (573) and Pittsburgh (575) have more.

St.Louis was 13-1-0 versus Edmonton since January 5th, 2012, and outscored the Oil 51-23. They beat the Oilers for fun, but times are changing in Oilerville. They've outscored the Blues 12-7 over this three-game winning streak, and the Oilers enter tonight seven points up on the Blues.

The Oilers are no longer the doormat of the NHL, while many in St.Louis are wondering if their window to win the Stanley Cup has closed.
