Q: Are Edmontonians extremely, perhaps even over-enthusiastically, excited about their team making it into hockey's Stanley Cup final . . .

. . . even to the point of drinking far too much (especially at the popular bar down the corner from you), wearing hockey sweaters at all possible times and not just on game days, becoming extremely (instead of somewhat) superstitious (for fear of jinxing the Oilers), having 3 or 4 (instead of 1 or 2) team flags on their cars, hollering "Go Oilers Go!" apropos of nothing while dressed in business clothes on Jasper Ave in the middle of a workday, displaying lots of untrimmed facial hair (see: superstitious), forgoing sex in order to lend the Oilers their "mojo" (I'm not kidding - overheard this), seeking to catch the flu going around "to relieve the team" (still not kidding), setting fires and having a mini-riot on Whyte Ave (of course), and yelling, while inebrieated and at the top of their lungs, quite rude exclaimations about the Anaheim Ducks and their mothers under your window at 4:45 in the morning?

A: Yes.
