I tend to think that the weird insecurity that Canadians exhibit when they complain about America’s lack of interest in of our nation is bullshit. Oh, they don’t know who our Prime Minister is, they’re all back water rick bags! We’re so hard done by, that their culture is dominant over ours. Woe is us.
The truth is that Canadians are no better than ignorant Americans. I once heard a guy explaining to another guy about how an NHL team in Seattle would have two natural rivals: Vancouver and Washington.
But then something like this happens, and I grow a little less convinced. I mean, c’mon. Yan Jones? Dan Johnson? What, no Gordie Dougie?
Secret Canadian handshake to Dave Worlin for the tip, eh?
