The Writer’s Block: Fisherwood to Tie the Knot this Weekend


We here at SenShot have started a new column appearing every Fridays except this first one. While most writers get psyched and dried up from a little disease that spreads around during the off-season called “Writer’s Block”, we kick it up a notch by finding random things to write about…except with an Ottawa Senators twist. Enjoy!

So, after more than year of Perez Hilton-type gossiping and rumour-mongering about Ilya Kovalchuk, Evgeni Nabokov, and oh yeah, that guy in the NBA who supposedly will be on national television today, Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood will be sipping the cold tights or marriage and likely hoping Kanye West doesn’t come to ruin their celebration.

In other words, the two are finally getting married, in what seems like a wedding of a lifetime. A bit funny that it will be just one weekend before former Senator Mike Comrie and fellow Blonde actress/singer Hillary Duff get married. May be a bit competition there? One thing Pretty Boy has though, at least he never had to play in DeadmontonEdmonton. Twice. And one time Comrie actually left because of the money, ’cause that’s the bad part of Edmonton and it’s Oilers.

What we all have to set straight here is, Fisher should and can not carry the Jason Spezza curse. Last July, Spezza tied the knot, and we all knew where the season went for him. Injuries and injuries, and finally a blasting from the crowd. Mikey had career highs last season, and we don’t need that to go away. We all know how valuable a second line centre is these days. Just ask the Chicago Blackhawks.

So, when you’re watching LeBron James dance ’cause he’s going to Miami, just think. Do I have to watch this crap? Maybe I should actually get a life, and go marry some hot country chick. See how that worked out for Mike Fisher?

And yes, that call you hear is David Poile of the Nashville Predators. Good or not, decide on yourself.
