Mayor John Henry Knows His Power Basketball
Oshawa Mayor John Henry was able to place the proverbial cherry on top on a historic night for Oshawa and Canadian basketball. With a convincing 107-80 win over the Moncton Miracles, John Henry can now look forward to seeing pictures of Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc sporting an Oshawa Power jersey at the next Moncton Council Meeting. This is all due to a friendly wager that involved Henry having to sport a Miracles jersey at his own meeting had the Power lost. But you know what they say, there are gamblers, and there are those who take calculated risks, and then there are those who just know their basketball.
Props to Mayor John Henry for showing support of the Power in my class' lecture yesterday morning. There was genuine pride in his eyes as he repeatedly mentioned the home opener to a lecture hall full of journalism students.
On that note, we hope to have members and players of the Oshawa Power as guests on Hoops N Hip-Hop this year.
