“Locked on Senators,” the daily Ottawa Senators podcast, hilariously begged the question at the sight of the star in the stands, “Is Ottawa becoming North Hollywood??”
Fans flooded the comments with explanations for Perry’s attendance, one user wrote: “He’s not a new fan. He’s connected to the city and has been a fan a long time (although with divided loyalties)”.
Another fan shared a softer sentiment, writing, “Another good hometown boy. Lifelong fan too :)”
