Ottawa Radio Station Pulls Carrie Underwood’s Music, Calls Her Hockey’s Yoko Ono


In light of today’s announcement that Mike Fisher was traded from his longtime team, the Ottawa Senators, to the hometown team of wife Carrie Underwood, the Nashville Predators, hockey fans all across Ottawa are blaming the country superstar. KISS FM, one of the area’s most popular radio stations, has even gone so far as removing all of Carrie’s music from their playlists.

“We know Mike Fisher is not to blame for this trade but feel he was lured away from Ottawa by a country-music superstar. Sure, she's pretty. Yes, she can sing. But can she play hockey? Can she put one on the top shelf with a slap shot? No!” said the station.

According to the Ottawa Sun, KISS FM program director Gayle Zarbatany said the ban is in effect forever. “This is a wretching announcement and the city is completely upset,” she said. “He's been here for 10 years, he's the second most popular player and it's awful.”

Responding to the people calling Carrie hockey’s version of Yoko Ono, Zarbatany replied “That's harsh, but it is what it is.”

UPDATE: Mike has responded to the folks who are claiming that Carrie had something to do with the trade. On his official website he said “She was actually really sad when she heard the news. If she had to choose she would have wanted me to stay in Ottawa. She knew I had played my whole career here.”

UPDATE: Ottawa Sun has posted another article stating that the vast majority of the city is sad at the loss of not only Fisher, but of Carrie as well. Country station Y101 FM’s Mark Papousek said “Carrie brought a lot to the city. She was one of us. She fit nicely into the Ottawa Valley. They did a lot of fundraising and charity work here. They'll be great together in Nashville, but right now, it's a big loss for Ottawa.”
