Apparently, Sam Crenshaw is an Ottawa Senators fan…

Sometimes, you never know what you’ll find online.  Check this out:

I never would have guessed that Sam Crenshaw was an Ottawa Senators fan, would you?  I figured that he would have been a Toronto Maple Leafs fan, considering that Sam was a big fan of the original Toronto Blizzard soccer team back in the 1980s.  Recall that he briefly played as a goalie during one of the Blizzard’s practices, much to his friend Jodie’s astonishment.

Meanwhile, it’s funny how I ran across this clip.  I don’t remember what prompted it, but I was digging through YouTube on my phone last night, trying to find a clip of Atlanta-area sportscaster Sam Crenshaw to show Elyse, when I encountered this video.  Ask Elyse – I was completely and totally blown away upon this discovery, watching it over and over again in order to completely wrap my mind around it.  “Did Sam really just say ‘kick butt’?”  (Yes, he did.)  And Sam is still a gentleman, rocking the white shirt and bow tie after all of these years.  I wonder what happened to Sam’s nose, though.  In any case, he looks good for 97 years old.  And I’m glad that Bob Dermer is still having fun with Sam as well.

And the Ottawa Senators appear to have done fairly well that season, coming in second place in their division, and making it to the conference finals in the playoffs.  Never underestimate the power of a few words of inspiration from Sam Crenshaw, I suppose.
