It’s playoff season and the stakes are high – especially if you’re willing to gamble on your favourite team’s success.
This year, like so many others with a jersey and some confidence, Edmonton Mayor and Oilers fan, Amarjeet Sohi has proposed a ‘friendly wager’ to L.A.’s commander and chief, Karen Bass.
“The city is BUZZING with energy!” Sohi wrote before April 17th’s game.
IT’S OFFICIALLY PLAYOFF SEASON! 💙🧡

“Let’s say whoever wins the series rocks the other team’s jersey for an upcoming Council meeting – you in?”
Sadly, for those invested, Mayor Bass has yet to respond, but we’re hoping that with a win in their pocket, she’ll feel more inclined!
Despite losing our first game, we think that the Oilers could pull through and there’s no harm in a little friendly fire.
As always, keep an eye out for updates, Edmonton – and don’t forget to cheer on our home team tonight at 8 pm either at home, in a bar OR at the ICE District, where they’ll be holding a series of parties during their home games.
It’s going to be wild and you won’t want to miss a beat.
