OPP Constable Lyndon Slewidge delivered one of the most stirring renditions of "O Canada" in recent memory before Game 2 -- as he does every night before Senators games. The coolest part was the enormous Canadian Flag being passed around the upper deck. Quite possibly the greatest Anthem since the 1991 All-Star game by Wayne Messmer and 20,000 Chicagoans.
But no Lyndon tonight. Alanis Morissette instead. The tradition and patriotism of having one of Ontario's Finest lead the anthem has been replaced by a pop artist trying to sell records...err.... CDs.... err.... iTunes Downloads.
Whomever made this decision should be forced to try to skate past Chris Pronger.
