Scott Had a Great Weekend in Muskoka
Here's what I remember though. In 2009 on Scott's birthday, Jessica posted on Scott's wall: "Happy birthday babe. Wish I could be there to spend the day with you."
Then a day or so later Jessica went to Muskoka (without Scott). Had such a great time she apparently changed her flight home (per Sandy Lee). It's a holiday weekend this weekend in Canada too, and one thing I know about Jessica is she never misses a vacation.
When she got home she posted something like "Back home after a great weekend in Muskoka (or up north, or something close to that.) "Thanks to the Lee family for that."
Sandy Lee is a diligent sham enabler and a member of the Ilderton/London/Ontario "skating community". Knows the Davisons and Moirs.
Scott has touted Muskoka as a favorite vacation spot, and obviously, Jessica has a place to stay when SHE's there - in fact, she's been there without Scott and was in 2009. Bryce's folks have a cottage, there have been many skating weekends up there.
So what do I think. Do I think this is a set up? "Jess" is going to put Muskoka photos on her private facebook? Are those who can't SEE her facebook going to know she was in Muskoka with Scott on his birthday weekend thanks to an upcoming profile pic Jess Dube puts up and thanks to Scott casting a wider net on his fan page?
Are they doing this because they're a little bit leery of shamming it up at Skate Canada this year?
Would Scott actually take his fan page, a semi-refuge from the sham, and send up a sham flare so fans who do not have the privilege of being accidentally on his "personal" facebook get baited into thinking his birthday thanks were genuine (the first birthday thanks he's bothered with in three years in response to facebook well wishes) his Muskoka shout out was genuine, and none of it had an agenda?
I hope not.
I think it's a shame because he flushed fans out of his personal page so nobody would take a second look and other outsiders wouldn't look at it with new eyes, but he still wants the sham benefits of a wide net.
On his fan page, he offers barely more than he originally did hosting thousands on his "personal" page. Nothing not already in the public domain. "Going to Korea/Russia/Taipei" "In Korea/Russia/Taipei" "Home from Korea/Russia/Taipei". From time to time he'll upload photos already in the public domain or link to an interview in the public domain. But something as personal as, hypothetically - "Happy Canada day - celebrated beating Charlie White in golf!" is too revealing. A candid from a competition or HPC is never offered. That's his privilege, if he's that private. So fans get happy when he actually acknowledges birthday wishes and mentions he was in Muskoka. And what does it turn out to be? Bait. So when Jessica's public profile pic goes up, even fans shut out of the facebooks will know it's from his b'day weekend in Muskoka and he can sucker them into buying a lie. That's an asshole.
