Tonight in Game One of the Stanley Cup final we’ll be watching Peterborough native Mike Fisher and another Peterborough connection – Austin Watson, who not too many years ago wore the maroon and white for the Petes.
Some insider info from the music booth…at the time Shawn Dunbar, the Petes music maestro, would play excerpts of ‘Barbra Streisand’ by Duck Sauce. At some point, during Austin’s tenure with the Petes Shawn had me splice out ‘Barbra Streisand’ and splice in ‘Austin Watson’ (same number of syllables…it was a perfect match).
But we never got the chance to use it, as Austin was traded…
And now he’s playing in the Stanley Cup.
