    People should stick to doing what they do best…In Stephane Dion's case,I'm not sure just what that is but then optics is his problem is it not?
    Whether it be his handlers or otherwise… showcasing such an inept man at physical sports serves only to make Dion appear more the buffoon than to appear the 'man's man.'
    The fact that he is trying to mistep his way into the locker room…(more PMSH's territory) futher confirms the man's lack of self understanding and in fact shows him more the sapling being buffeted by any errant breeze than a contender for national leadership of a G8 country.

    This is unfair, you think it is easy to raise the puck?

  • Soccermom

    I have tears running down my face! That was soooo funny. And the music was perfect!

  • WCT

    Is that Dryden in net? What sweater is the goalie wearing? Rule number one is that ball hockey is played in the street … “go play in the traffic Stephane”

  • batb

    But, Stephen, Dion said that he was going to keep shooting until he scored… LOL!

    Now, will the MSM diss him for HiS sweater?

    Maybe the ball is English.

    The last time a party leader was shown as inept at physical activity was Robert Stanfield – the best prime minister we were too stupid to vote into power. Instead, we fell for Trudeau’s “charisma” and ended up with a devastated economy and massive unemployment. Thankfully, Dion is not just inept at physical activity.

    That video says it all Stephen, reminds me of a similar bit with Rick Mercer in the net playing ball hockey with someone. As i recall so many tennis balls went past Mercer, all at blinding speed, like being shot out of a cannon. At the end it was Stephen Harper behind the hockey stick taking the shots. A real no suprise ending. I hope this video hits prime time television, or the old Mercer gig. Both classics that say it all about leadership. Thanks for the laugh, one of the best “Attack” ads yet, life imitating art. Yee-haw.

  • Liz J

    I say the goalie is a Conservative!

  • Liz J

    Slightly off topic but Dion is wearing the dreaded sweater at an event in PEI. Just wondering if the media will have a dump on him and accuse him of trying to soften his image?
    They do love Liberals in PEI,hope they give him a sack of the fruit of red sand.

  • Sammy

    Is this what they mean when they speak of 'taken one too many head shots?'

  • phil hauser

    So reminiscent of the Honest Bob Football folly in 1974. Only difference is there is more than one miss for Dion. Very Funny.

  • Laura

    That is painfully awkward. I don't know whether to LMAO or feel sorry for the guy.

  • East of Eden

    Bahahahahahahaha. Sorry – but that was hilarious. I still go back to that video once in a while. However, my favourite video is the one with Jack Layton skewering him with “if you can't do your job as the Opposition why are you running for Prime Minister”? That was classic – with a capital C.

  • Tim

    its a pretty tacky to belittle a man while he's having a bit of fun playing road hockey with some kids.

    “I don't know how I sleep at night”, LMAO. Stephen you are one nasty Dude picking on little Steffi!

  • Swift

    He should switch to soccer, then he could score an own goal.

  • dbo789

    That was hilarious, but I honestly can't say I'd do any better. But hey, I'm not the leader of a national party, so I never have to show my inabilities on live television. :P

    Someone asked about the goalie, so here's the info. The man in nets is a Quebec comedian/satirist who calls himself “Infoman” similar to Rick Mercer, but who often dresses up in weird costumes … yeah, like I was saying, similar to Mercer.
    http://www.radio-canada.ca/emissions/infoman/sa

    There was an article on a La Presse blog about the game. Here's a play-by-play:
    http://blogues.cyberpresse.ca/electoral/?p=61
    OK, here are the highlights of the Dion-Dufort ball hockey clash in front of the Radio-Canada building, on Friday morning at 10:30: Dion 4 goals, Dufort at least 75 stops. Still, it must be said that the “Infoman” team had given the Liberal leader an inverted blade!

    Stéphane Dion, who really likes to talk about his love for the sport, was wearing a Canadiens jersey over his suit; he also wore white running shoes which clashed slightly with his image. Jean-René Dufort wore a complete goalie outfit: leg pads, glove, blocker, his TV program jersey and even a real mask. The two played just under five minutes, during which Mr. Dion stepped up his one on one attacks, up until he was very short of breath at the end. “Is it five minutes yet?” he asked a few times. “Infoman” had promised five minutes of entertainment. “It's fun, it rejuvenates us.”

    The attention that Jean-René Dufort pays to Stéphane Dion goes back a long way and their relationship has not always been very cordial – until the victory of the Liberal leader in Montreal in December 2006, when the new leader finally consented to give him an interview. Apparently, they’re getting along much better now.

  • Gabby in QC

    Tim, it's not “some kid.”
    He's playing with a Quebec comedian, and the segment will probably air on Radio-Canada next Thursday at 7:30 pm, a few days before election day.

    To paraphrase “Field of Dreams”: If they tape it, politicians will come.

  • East of Eden

    Well, Tim, the Libs and the media certainly made it an issue when Robert Stanfield fumbled a football. Turnabout is fair play. Why is it that Libs never, ever acknowledge their party's misdeeds?

  • BlueSweaterBrigade

    I wonder what the kid in goal was thinking? That's what's missing – balloon comments from the goalie.

    Stephen – have you anything to say about what the polls are showing. Seems to me they're all over the place.
    Is it a matter of partisanship for some, or are the polls a snowjob?

  • http://jamesbowie.blogspot.com James Bowie

    OK, let's have a fantasy draft. LPC v. CPC. I know for sure we've got a better goalie. What does your starting lineup look like?

  • RGM

    Not going to be too many guys in Habs jerseys this year with that problem.

  • RGM

    In fairness to Stanfield, legend has it that he was out there for a good hour tossing the ball around and the media ran the photo of the one he didn't catch. Dion put as many shots on that kid as Carey Price stops in a whole period!

  • Emilie

    Ah………….. Dion did score!!! He never gave up until the puck was in the net!!! That's the kinda guy he is. Tories will pay for all their lies. Yes they will :)

  • Rob O'Bobbins

    The vid was funny enough, but thanks to your comment I think I need a new set of pants.

I hate those wineing Babies and leave Stephen Harper do his job. I can't beleive they just spent $30 million dollars on an election and because the Liberals, N.D.P. and the Bloc which isn't anything really because they lost by far don't like it are crying. Babies that's what they all are. They lost quit crying

    Did any one notice the books behind Stepane Dion during his recorded speech. One was titled Hot Air. Was this placed behind him as a joke?
