When the owners of Edmontonâs new arena, Rogers Place, announced a new burger named after one of the cityâs sport bigwigs, they probably werenât expecting quite so much sarcasm.
Because, really, itâs just a burger, right?
The Bobby Nickâs burger, named after Oilers Entertainment Group CEO Bob Nicholson, has drawn attention from Edmonton mayor Don Iveson and Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli.
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has even weighed in on the burger, as has undecided U.S. voter Ken Bone (you know, the man made famous by the most recent presidential debate.)
Wait a hot second. Thatâs not right.
Upon closer inspection, these comments are from people just pretending to be some of Edmonton â and the worldâs â most influential. And that makes them even funnier.
And, of course, there are the everyday, run-of-the-mill commenters who moseyed over just to express their disappointment in the Oilers ongoing poor performance (again.)
