Oilers fan vows Stanley Cup or no hair

A local bus driver is so supportive of the Edmonton Oilers and their Stanley Cup push he’s willing to risk his hair for it.

Steve Bredlow's hair is riding on the Oiler's hockey skill.

A local bus driver is so supportive of the Edmonton Oilers and their Stanley Cup push he’s willing to risk his hair for it.

Steve Bredlow dropped by The Pipestone Flyer office Apr. 28 to relate a bet he made with his cargo, that is, the students on his school bus. He said he drives bus for himself and carries 65 students every day.

“Basically, I told the kids if the Oilers don’t win the Stanley Cup, the hair comes off,” said Bredlow last Friday. “That’s called a true Oilers fan.”

Bredlow said he feels the Oilers, as of Monday, May 1, still in series two against the Anaheim Ducks, match up well against the California team and shouldn’t have any more trouble with them than they did with the San Jose Sharks. In fact, Bredlow said he thinks if the Oilers can beat Anaheim, they will win the cup.

What’s the key to beating Anaheim, according to Bredlow? “Stay out of the penalty box,” he said bluntly.

Any chance Bredlow will not honour the best? “It’s legally binding,” he said.

Bredlow said he’s proud to be an Oilers fan, and it’s obvious there’s lots of other proud fans out there too. “What Canadian team sells out (their arena) just to watch it on a big screen TV?” he mused with a laugh.
