Oscar has always been a positive for me. “And the Oscar goes to” is a wonderful moment, altough passing on Shawshank Redemption tells us the Academy is addled.
Oscar the Grouch is a perfect character. Honest, straightforward, grouchy. You’ll meet a lot of people in life who rob you of time, energy and money because they lack the genuine directness of this garbage man.
Oscar Madison was a brilliant character, the grouch brought to life. There’s a scene in the television series (I think its the series) where Felix has just cleaned up the house and Oscar walks in, rips open a bag of chips and pours it on the coffee table. That’s golden.
I’m a little worried about these young Oiler defensemen. Are they Oscar the straightforward, beer drinking grouch? Or, GOD FORBID, are they as a group more like Felix?
I kid, of course. Klefbom has a bum shoulder (4-6 weeks), Gernat has one too and Marincin took a little extra time this fall. The real item here isn’t to question the manhood of the young defenders, it is to remind us that injuries and defensemen–especially defensemen–go hand in hand. Maybe they should draft them by the dozen.
