Of course what Watson knows about sports or sports management (or management generally) you could put in a thimble and still have room for one of those hockey discs. Apparently the mayor is really enjoying the World Series between the Vegas Golden Sand Flies and the Washington Whatchamacallits.
Watson and former Senators star Daniel Alfredsson (who took time off from being second baseman for the Sand Flies to throw his support behind the mayor) both think the Sens cricket squad needs a better owner than Eugene Melnyk. It appears Watson is running for mayor on the back of Melnyk (while stabbing him in the back).
So why doesn’t Watson call for better leadership at Minto or QNX where His Worship has immense knowledge of how to run those businesses better?
Does Watson realize that in saying nasty things about Melnyk that he hurts one of the city’s finest institutions, the Senators? Why of course he does. The city’s a partner in Lansdowne and with no Senators, less competition for the sports teams there.
And Melnyk is not especially popular these days. So why not join the public wave in an election year.
And how do Watson supporters feel about this? See the video below:
