Back in 1990, when the campaign was underway to restore the Senators hockey club to Ottawa, we got these original logo jerseys, and have been wearing them to games ever since. Here’s my brother Robin and me, at Sunday night’s game at The Palladium, when the Ottawa Senators played the visiting Winnipeg Jets. The Sens Army was in full roar, and our home town heroes — although plagued with injuries to star players — emerged triumphant, with a 4-1 victory.
There wasn’t even a team when we started wearing these jerseys, and by the time they hit the ice the logo had changed to an inferior design without any reference to Ottawa. Even if no one else gets it, we know that’s the Peace Tower in the middle — and that’s Ottawa!
