Once again I’ve done it. Don’t ask.
I’ve just spent an hour writing a post about the upcoming Senators visit to the Bell Centre and then somehow deleted it. And no matter what I do about undoing it, I can’t get it back.
I’m not going to ask you if you know how frustrating this is. You’ve had your own moments. But please excuse me while I look for some liquor.
Here’s the gist of what I went on about. Even though I lived in Ottawa for 15 years, was married there, my two kids were born there, and I have good friends there, I want the Senators to not only lose and lose big to the Canadiens, but I couldn’t care less if they won another game this season. They mean as much to me as that other bunch sitting in the Senate.
I’ve also decided to not mention anymore about old friends who were great Habs fans until the Senators began play in 1992 and these old Habs fans became Sens fans and …………never mind. I’m trying to get past this.
And these murmurs about Alex Kovalev coming back to Montreal? This riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma? This player who decides to play once every five games?
Do we want to regress to the team we were a few years ago? A team going nowhere? We’re on the move now and we don’t want Alex Kovalev, plain and simple. We’re still working on Scott Gomez for goodness sakes.
