The Canadiens play in Carolina Thursday evening which means two things; It’s a must-win game for the slumping Habs, and the Hurricanes Storm Squad will wiggle like crazy.
I’m not a fan of cheerleaders at hockey games, although I can’t really pinpoint why. Maybe it’s because I’m a bit of a traditionalist. I also miss the Queen’s portrait at one end of a rink too, for what it’s worth, as was the case at the old Winnipeg Arena, Maple Leaf Gardens, and the Orillia Community Centre.
Imagine, I’d rather see the Queen than a bevy of scantily-clad beauties shaking and jiggling.
I just think cheerleading is a football, basketball thing.
I’m also worried Montreal will follow suit, like Edmonton has done recently, and add limbered up lovelies to the Bell Centre. I don’t think I’d like it. And Toe Blake and the gang, sitting in their luxury boxes high in the sky, probably wouldn’t be crazy about it either. Do we really need rah rah at the Bell ?
Maybe if the ladies did pole dances it might be better.
