Kenny and Hockey fans....

No this is not a wanted man, or the photo of one of those new daytime soap stars.

This is young Kenny, the fine producer of TGOR.

Kenny is a Flames fan, likes the Falcons and 26 ounce bottles of whatever makes you stupid. He's the guy who TGOR listeners first talk to, and the man in charge of Shnappying Sleepy Jeff on a regular basis.

If you are a single, fairly attractive woman aged 19-75, you know what to do.

Now, on to my rant about hockey fans.

One of the things I've noticed now that I work every Senators home game is all the Jerseys in the crowd. Full marks to Leaf fans, because they come out and support their team whenever the battle of Ontario is on at Scotiabank Place. At Sunday's game between the Sens and Flyers I see a guy in the crowd with a Tucker Jersey. Now, I started to think, did #16 ever play for Philly? No...and since he's never played for the Sens maybe the guy didn't check the matchup on the ticket. You wouldn't go to a Stones concert wearing an Eric Clapton concert tee, so why wear a completely different Jersey to a hockey game?

Now there are exceptions to every rule:

1. Any Wayne Gretzky All Star Jersey
2. Any Team Canada Jersey
3. Any local sports amateur sports team, (i,e the Nepean Wildcats)

I went off on this rant this morning and several emailers pointed out that one Sens fan in the lower bowl wears an anti Leaf Jersey to most games, even when were not playing the buds.

Point well taken.

Wear whatever you want to a game, just don't tuck in the Jersey.
