Edmonton Oilers opening night: bagpipes and acrobats

The Edmonton Oilers had a very unique pre-game show for their home opener this year, with a circus-like show featuring a huge bagpipe band and two acrobats performing tricks while suspended from the ceiling. The show's been taking a lot of flack on message boards -- but I think it was pretty original and from the loud applause it sounds like the fans at Rexall Place really enjoyed it. Here's the full show -- all 28 minutes -- from Oilers On Demand. (Make sure you watch the great intro video at about 13:50.)
