While it is great that there is hockey back in Winnipeg, there have been reports that the housing available for the players is not exactly great.
Yesterday, Mick Kern at NHL Home Ice blogged about understanding what the Jets are going through in a very funny way:
Take a moment to skate a mile in their shoes; most of these guys spent the past few years in Atlanta, where no doubt there were Southern mansions a-plenty to be had. Who cares if a paltry sum of souls attended your home games? If anything, that anonymity provided a shield from the prying eyes of the hockey mad, mouth drooling, Northern-based hoser. Heck, you could probably even drive your boat and pop open a few cool ones there, and nobody down there would care.
Not in Winnipeg. Not in Canada.
Every move here is scrutinized, analyzed, dissected, interpreted, and duly reported, like football in Texas.
Which explains why these hockey playing migrants require only the best fortress available from the unrelenting waves of unconditional love they are receiving from the populace of One Great City.
