Ottawa sports writers need to get a life

This is some kind of joke, right? Are Ottawa papers really so amazed that Carrie Underwood would come to our city to visit her boyfriend? Is this really front-page news? Obviously, the Ottawa Sun made the biggest deal of it, making her the cover photo as well as the subject of their ever-clever headlines, but even the Ottawa Citizen had Underwood on the cover (see below, top right) and a big photo of her on the lead sports page.

I get it. Cool, a celebrity is in Ottawa, and an attractive one, at that. But come on... let the woman live, and get over it. It really isn't this big of a deal.
