Hitting The Links: Randomly Appointed By Stephen Harper Edition

Time to end the pleasantries.

There is a great video out there on the internets that maybe I will find for the comments. In it, a fake reporter asks then -Senators player Dany Heatley if "to be a Senator, do you have to be really good or are you just randomly appointed by Stephen Harper?" It's pretty excellent. Heatley plays right off of it, joking about how Harper could make the team if he had a really good camp, etc. Hilarious.

Anyways, no one cares about my dumb stories, have some links. Did you know Patrice Bergeron played pond hockey at Lake Placid during the break? What a cool guy.
