Conan O’Brien Has Some Rowdy Oilers Fans in His Audience


We come from a generation that worships the absurd hilarity of Mr. Conan O’Brien.  But we rarely have a chance to catch his show, usually because we are busy blogging or watching hockey, or sleeping off all the hours we’ve spent blogging and watching hockey (To quote Andy from The Office: “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.  I haven’t had a very hard life”).

We caught the show last night, and were delighted to see that Conan had to deal with some very excited visitors from Edmonton, dressed in full Oilers garb.  It’s not the first time Conan’s had to deal with hockey folk, as Conan unveiled this net to some Toronto Maple Leafs when he visited T.O. a few years back, post-jump.  

We couldn’t get a clip, but here’s a link the Hulu’d video of the entire episode.  You wanna watch during the monologue, you’ll see these fellas.  Good on these fans for wearing their sweaters to a big-time late-night show, and then getting noticed by the man himself.

Our personal favorite moment: Devils fan Max Weinberg explaining to Conan that these folks are here for the Oilers-Rangers game later in the evening (Conan tapes around 5:30 PM).  “Conan on skates” was just gravy.
