    I hope he avoids the smarmy Photo-op with the team and just enjoys the game.
    Go Oilers Go.
    God bless our PM.

    I'm not trying to disparage PMSH by asking this, I'm just curious if it's true:

    I heard a while back -- can't recall where -- that Harper was in some policy meeting during the 2002 Men's Gold Medal match in the Salt Lake City Olympics. Is this true?

    Perhaps, dirk. Although the man appears to be a hockey nut. He's evidently a big researcher into early pro hockey. There's a video about it on the Blogging Tories site. (Choke back the vomit if possible. ;) )

    Stephen Harper is just your average guy, who happens to be Prime Minister. Going to hockey games and sitting in the crowd - not a private box - just shows people that.

    "Stephen Harper is just your average guy, who happens to be Prime Minister."

    I disagree. The guy is a self-admitted policy wonk. How many average guys do you know have masters degrees in Economics, let alone find economics interesting?

    Stephen Harper is an economic policy geek, and I like that in a PM. I do not want a "Tim Horton's" PM, and I'm glad we don't have one.

    Good call, but if he is a true economics geek (I'm rehabilitated, myself) we should be totally giving him wedgies and dumping his books on Parliament Hill. And he couldn't say anything about it, either, because he'd have to admit that it's true, in that wry, self-aware dorky way that economics geeks are known for, as he's handing over his lunch money to us.

    "I do not want a "Tim Horton's" PM, and I'm glad we don't have one."

    What, you don't want a guy hanging out at the Tim Horton's in his company's Dodge Caravan, trying his damndest to make the donut run as long as possible so he gets an extended break? ;)
