Back To Hockey For Mike Fisher

from Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen,

Mike Fisher, after leading his teammates in goal scoring for the first time in 17 years, married superstar recording artist Carrie Underwood in the off-season and appeared in a music video with his bride, plus the couple is having a new home built on the outskirts of Ottawa.

It can’t be easy being a “Fish” in two fish bowls: the music/glam world he has married into and the fish bowl he has known, as a Canadian player on a Canadian-based National Hockey League team. Growing up in a small city like Peterborough, Ont., learning to skate and fish and hunt in his Kawartha Lakes, Ont., backyard, was hardly ideal training for fending off paparazzi (although that crossbow he favours would come in handy).

But, on the surface, anyway, Fisher takes all the fuss and hype in stride.

“You know what, living in Ottawa, we’re kind of protected from a lot of it,” Fisher says. “Nashville, the same. It would be different if we were living in L.A. or New York or something, but we’re fortunate to be living where we are.

Married in the off season, now sitting out with a groin strain.

The jokes write themselves, folks.

But seriously, most people in Ottawa care more about Fisher repeating his success of last season (though a little bit more consistency would be nice) than his appearance in music videos.
