Whatever it is, I've got it bad because I never gave a shit about hockey haha! But seriously I don't know how their attendance is usually, but being geographically sandwiched between hordes of bitter Habs and Leafs fans is probably playing a role.

The arena is like a half hour out of town and, outside of this spring, seemingly most hockey fans here back the Habs.* In the time I've been here, I've never gotten the sense that people give a fuck about the Sens.

* As an extension to that, it's been suggested that Ottawa isn't a sports town because the population largely comes from somewhere else and just don't bond with the teams.

Where are you living now Doc? Ottawa just doesn't have the caché of MTL and TO. People don't pretend to hail from Ottawa.... ever. It's like if you live there you're extra Canadian but you don't belong to the city or something. Also, as capitals go they don't have a cool nickname like Chocolate City.

We moved to Ottawa in Dec 09. I like it well enough—lots of green space, not much crime, enough variety to keep things from being boring.

It's definitely a nice town, it doesn't get its due. Lots of punk kids there, I played a fest there last year.

That's a selling point? I like Montreal. It's a place I can buy drugs, hire a North Korean hooker, and smoke in an elevator.

As opposed to lots of crime? Being in my late 40s and someone who walks most places, I'm pretty good with low crime.

I don't know why we waste hockey on Canada, when there's true hockey towns like Tampa Bay and Nashville.

Shit, well, keep me in mind next time you're in town. It's funny how low-key this place is when you spend any time in TO, Boston, or NYC. Tho friends tell me the place has really grown up in the last couple decades, it is fundamentally a city of civil servants.

I know right? Canadians might have invented hockey, but Americans are keeping the genre alive. Canadians don't even listen to hockey any more. :shifty:

I figured out why the world is going to shit:
Abstract
Taking everyone by surprise, poutine—an unpretentious Quebecois dish originally made of fries, cheese curds and brown gravy—found its way onto the Canadian State Dinner menu organized by the White House in March 2016. Drawing on my personal relationship with poutine, this paper intends to expose how poutine has managed to enact a form of social mobility. The tasting experience of poutine is first deconstructed through its taste ‘on the tongue’ and its taste as a dynamic social process, to investigate poutine’s palatability and mainstream appeal. Through this tasting analysis, poutine emerges as a new(er) and distinct way to consume food that is increasingly adopted and adapted. A working definition of poutine as a new dish classification label in its own right (just like sandwiches, dumplings, soups, flatbreads or sushi) is proposed. The social mobility of other foods (e.g. lobster, kimchi, garlic, and sushi) is further explored, before discussing how poutine is also connected to a stigma, which weakens the agency of the Quebecois. Using the social identity theory, it appears that Quebecois youth are dismissing this ‘poutine stigma’ through a revaluing approach, which resembles a reappropriation of poutine, not necessarily linguistically (as seen with ‘black’, ‘queer’, or ‘geek’), but rather in a culinary fashion. Coupling poutine’s sociohistorical stigma and its growing Canadization (that is, the presentation, not the consumption per say, of poutine as a Canadian dish), two related situations—the ongoing process of poutine culinary appropriation and the threat of Quebecois cultural absorption by Canadians—are exposed.

Arguments made that posit Quebeckers as grievously mistreated have long been part of Canada's national dialogue. The serious are so intertwined with the slight that I rarely consider any of them anymore.
