Ottawa Mayor Hangs Montreal Canadiens Flag Above City Hall

Ottawa Mayor Hangs Montreal Canadiens Flag Above City Hall

Jim Watson, the mayor of Ottawa honored his bet this morning (Wednesday April 29th). According to a deal he struck with Montreal's mayor Denis Coderre, Watson had to spend the day wearing a Habs jersey and he had to hoist a Montreal Canadiens flag in front of Ottawa's city hall.

The best part of this whole thing is that the jersey he was wearing was number 76, P.K. Subban's jersey. And we all know how much Ottawa looooooves P.K. Subban. They demonstrated this by cheering loudly for him every time he touched the puck. That was cheering right? I'm not sure ... (are they saying boo or boourns?)

The Habs flag will fly proudly in Ottawa for an entire week.
