Every now and then, you’ll find a man who loves a sports team more than the mother of his children.
In this case, both the husband and the wife loved the Edmonton Oilers more than their spouse of…wait for it…35 years.
That’s right, kids. According to HuffPost, Beverly and Donald McLeod no longer loved each other after 35 years of marriage, so like most divorces, the Alberta couple sat before a judge to split up their belongings. Financially, Donald must have had the world by the balls over the years because he told the judge he was willing to give Beverly $15,000 a month in “spousal support.”
The one stipulation? You guessed it – the couple’s Edmonton Oilers season tickets were his and only his.
Well, Beverly was having none of that shit, as Connor McDavid’s play on the ice has no doubt been wrecking her panties for the last few seasons. So, she really threw a knife in her ex-husband’s giblets and decided to file for joint custody of the tickets. As a result, Justice Ritu Khullar had no choice but to issue the following ruling:
“The parties shall alternate choices for game tickets with the defendant choosing first the game for which he wants tickets, the plaintiff choosing second for her game, and the parties alternating choices thereafter until all regular season tickets have been assigned.”
Naturally, my first reaction was, “Why not take that $15,000 a month and buy seats to every game and sit one row in front of your ex with a dude who is younger and more jacked?” Well, apparently there is nothing else to do in Edmonton except watch the Oilers because season tickets can go for as much as $23,000.
So yeah, that’s why.
In any case, many people are having fun at the couple’s expense, with tweets like this one making the rounds:

Although in this case, any kids the couple may have had would most likely be in their adult years, so fuck ’em. It is all about those Oilers tickets.
