My parents birthed and raised me in the "City of Champions" when the Oilers slicked their way to Stanley multiple, glorious times. Under the dictatorship of my cheapass Chinese mom, I was often forsaken basic necessities like shoes. But I had an Oilers T-shirt when I was a toddler--that I proceeded to wear until just yesterday. (I invented the baby T).
My mom's favorite player is, unsurprisingly, Jari KURRI.
