Mayor Watson's Paddling Pool
It's the week that every hockey fan in Ottawa has been waiting for.
The NHL All Star Game is coming to town.
Lights! Camera! Action!
Get ready for the big intro on Thursday when the Stanley Cup will be taken down the Rideau Canal skateway, hoisted by NHLers and topless girls in bikini bottoms.
I can't wait to see that.
They'll have to wear rubber boots and hip waders given the state of Canada's largest skating rink which is, currently, under water. Ditto, I suspect, for the brand spanking new skating rink in front of city hall that we taxpayers forked over a small fortune to build this year.
Let's call it what it is, shall we?
Mayor Watson's Paddling Pool.
