Glad to see Stephen Harper doning his Flames jersey and attending the game. If he'd brought his son along, it would have been better optics but at least he's following my advice.
It's a shame the Flames came up short. Most importantly, this spells bad news for Stephen Harper, according to my little theory. Mind you, the latest SES poll has...not get ready for this...the Conservatives up 35-31. Every day some idiot who has no business representing their constituents opens his or her mouth and spouts nonsense but the Tories keep rising, about a point every 2 days - just like clockwork. The party may be full of Neanderthals but Harper, unlike Stockwell Day, is a social moderate and it's going to make him Prime Minister.
I think we can all agree the Tories made the right decision with the merger and the right decision with their leader (although I think Bernard Lord would have blown Martin away. Hell, I doubt Martin would have called the election if he was up against Lord).
Oh, and for some real hockey talk, be sure to check out the Carnival at All Things Canadian.
