The Senators' senator


Well, that didn't work, did it?

Note how he wears his chinstrap like a hockey player, which is why the helmet's rocking around like Marty Brodeur's and pulling the mike away from his face.

And I love that he has his script written on his shield. Very... intimidating?

(One wonders how other teams can replicate such an entrance? An extra from March of the Penguins for Pittsburgh? Or the Aflac duck in Anaheim?)

The last time I checked, they were called "Senators", not "Gladiators". Maple Leafs should put a big pile of maple leaves on the center ice and get someone to scream from underneath.

What a fitting end for the Looney Tunes season in Ottawa.
Marvin the Martian at centre ice, Daffy Duck on the bench and Elmer Fudd coaching.
That's all folks.

I didn't think that that was that bad. It would have been absolutely awesome if he'd done it all bilingually.

Does a mic cutting-out sound different in French?

I'd been wondering what The Shockmaster was up to these days.

Embarrasing like Sens playoffs.

Sigh. Ottawa's logo confuses "Senator" with "Legionnaire." For an example of the former, think Cato the Younger, not some guy with a sword and shield. Now, they have confused "Legionnaire" (a Roman concept, given that Rome had a Senate) with "Underdressed Caricature of a Greek Heavy Infantryman Stolen from a Fun, but Woefully Inaccurate, Hollywood Blockbuster." Aside from the fact that the Greeks didn't have a Senate, the members of a phalanx actually wore armor.

It gets harder and harder to be a history major every day.

This was fitting for how they played in their series but the only place this horrid display would have been okay is as an April Fool's joke. The Ducks would get Howard the Duck instead of the AFLAK mascot; I think of all the teams that could do something like this the Avs and Hurricanes would be the best choices.

If I were a Sens fan, I'd be angry at the team for that.

It gives fans of the other 29 teams an indefensible reason to rip on the Sens ... FOREVER.

It's like Ottawa lusts for failure.
