“Could someone please put a moratorium on mayors making stupid bets regarding the outcome of a playoff series. Who gives a crap if Jim Watson has to walk around in a Rangers jersey.”
Don Brennan of Postmedia
Amen Don Brennan, amen.
This is the oldest, most-tired joke in the history of municipal politics.
It’s just a way for city politicians to get their names in the paper in the most gratuitous way. One would hope that assignment editors around the community would say no to this pathetic political ploy.
And guess what? Who is the worst offender of this most-cliched of actions? Mayor Jim Watson.
Watson couldn’t get a bet from Boston on the Bruins-Sens tilt so he had to go to the U.S. embassy. Even some politicians are getting tired of this garbage.
Watson would put a Beavertail on a snakes-and-ladders marathon.
Stop it. Now. It’s long past the point of being grating.
A joke stops being funny after the first two or three tellings. Imagine how bad it is after thousands of repetitions.
