sibling rivalry

It’s sort of a shame that apparently the “faux ban on Leaf jerseys at the Corel Centre”:http://ottawa.cbc.ca/regional/servlet/View?filename=otleafjerseys20040316 won’t be in effect for this Saturday’s game against the Hurricanes, at which Tyla and I will be in attendance. I was looking forward to bringing a big box of pablum for the Ottawa babies.

    At least the Leaf fans are supporting the Corel Centre.

    By “Ottawa babies”, of course, you mean the hundreds of children in the city of Ottawa who would benefit from a food bank donation. :)

    The whole brou-ha-ha seems to have gotten decidedly out of hand. What was meant in jest (and auspolitik) by Ottawa City Council as a way of ramping up playoff spirit seems to have raised the ire of defensive hockey fans on both sides. I, for one, would hope that even those wearing Ottawa jerseys would bring a donation for the food bank. It’d be a nice way to defuse what was meant to be a friendly jab at our hockey rival.

    I imagine I can rustle up some Pablum at work for you today and will come to the defence of your family should a beat-down appear immenent.

    Yes, Mike, precisely those babies.
