"In what is surely one of the stupidest and most ignorant moves going, somebody with the Senators organization decided to cover a wall near the Penguins dressing room in Scotiabank Place with a large mural. It's a photo of the Senators shaking hands with the Penguins after the Senators eliminated them in their first-round matchup last spring.
"... The photo smacks of arrogance — unearned by this franchise, frankly, which has been a notorious underachiever at this time of year and has little reason to look down on any other or rob the noses of opposing players in defeat." — Chris Stevenson, Sun Media, Apr. 14, 2008Strange, you could have deduced this just on a gut feeling 15 months ago:
"Obviously, if it's OK for Senators employees to make a video mocking other teams and show it at every game, then it suggests something about the office culture out there in the wilds of Kanata — instead of pride in one's organization, there's a false, defeatist pride built on running down others." — Out of Left Field, Jan. 14, 2007
Enjoy the game tonight, all.
