Ravenstahl has at least one fan in Ottawa; when the bet was announced back in April, Ottawa Sun columnist Ann Marie McQueen wanted to know if Ottawa could keep Ravenstahl if the Senators lost. She referred to Pittsburgh’s youthful mayor as a “bright and shining example of youth achievement” and “a strong-jawed hunk oozing with ambition if ever there was one.”


That’s not a strong-jawed hunk.

THAT’S a strong-jawed hunk.

    Yes, Ottawa, you can have him. Give us Chris Phillips and Anton Volchenkov, and we’ll throw in Joe Melichar and Rob Scuderi. And some of our pigeons, just because we care, and because we value Lukey so much. Can pigeons live in climates where the average winter temperature is -10 degrees?

    Pfh, as long as we get to keep Troy, you can go ahead and take Luke…

    Maybe Ms. McQueen confused Lukey with the new Steelers mascot.

    Come now, that’s just a bad picture of Luke. Can someone else please come out of the woodwork and admit that baby Luke makes them swoon, too? Please?
