Ottawa Senators Coach Paul Maclean Stands Next to His Doppleganger

Thursday April 3rd, 2014

SENATORS would lead you to believe that this photo is of two similar but different men -- Ottawa Senators coach Paul Maclean and fan Mike Watson.

But I have a different theory.  The man purported to be "Mike Watson" is actually Paul Maclean FROM THE FUTURE sent back in time to warn himself of an impending disaster.  The only problem is, the time machine always brings him back during Senators games, and Future Paul can never get through to Past Paul.  This raises some interesting questions: What is he trying to warn himself about? Why won't Past Paul listen to Future Paul? Does he get beer caught in his mustache?
