The Winnipeg Fish Bowl

From Judy Owen of the CP via Winnipeg Free Press:

Andrew Ladd was idling in the drive-thru line at Tim Hortons when it was his turn to move up to the window.

As he was passed his coffee, the clerk told Ladd it had been paid for by the person in the vehicle in front of his.

“It was pretty neat,” the Winnipeg Jets captain said. “Obviously, for them to recognize me from the car ahead was something that usually doesn’t happen.”

Such is the fish bowl the Jets will be swimming in since it was announced May 31 that the Atlanta Thrashers had been bought by True North Sports and Entertainment and were moving to NHL-starved Winnipeg.

Its possible it was just a coincidence.  People paying forward at timmys happens all the time.  Unless they specifically said it was for him.. but since he’s behind him it’d be a bit more difficult to ascertain identity.  Either way.. welcome to Winnipeg grin
