Yes I won’t repeat what my Canadian friends would say if they were told they were American. I think the language would offend against the TOS.  Especially the ones from Quebec. Strange a lot of my Canadian friends seem to come from Quebec.

Yeah, the whole “You are not the only Americans” is so very Che Guevara, and a few decades out of fashion, I think.


Anyone who thinks tthat Molson is a prime example of good Canadian beer probably needs to get their tastebuds examined. I wouldn’t touch the stuff if I’d just been rescued after crawling for four weeks through the deserted badlands searching in dehydrated desperation in the hollows of fallen trees for puddles of raccoon urine. But give me some Whistler Bear Paw Honey Lager or some Philips Dirty Squirrel Hazelnut Brown, and I’ll be happy.

Do you know, all these people who are telling us what Canada does have have so far failed to mention the most important thing that Cananda does have,

It has a rguby team, a rugby union team at that. And it is actually not too bad a rugby team either.

Now that does impress me.

...good point.


...and their “American” style” football is played on a longer pitch than in the US.

Comments on Canadian Beer almost starts to violate the TOS regulations on “Political” comments.  wink

Lets be careful on whose politics we tread

American football, huh. 

Here on the Celtic fringe of the UK we either admire those who play rugby (preferably rugbyunion) and those who play gaelic football.

...by far, one of the roughest sports I’ve seen is not Hockey, Rugby, or even Aussie Rules FB, it;s Hurling.


...basically it’s kind of like hockey but played on a grass pitch with sticks (hurleys) and a small hard ball (sliotar). Use of the stick against an opposing player, while discouraged by rules, is still rather commonplace as it is in ice hockey.  Mind you, the players including, the goaltender, wear no protective pads as they do in Hockey.


The ball can be propelled fast, exceeding 90 mph.  “Tackling” involves use of the body (though shoulder “checking” is forbidden) or hurley.which includes two handed jabs or strikes.

The compulsory use of helmets with faceguards (in this sport which predates recorded Irish history) was only adopted two years ago.

Yes I suppose, with my association with clubs, that I should admire Hurling as well, but have to admit that I have been an afficianado of Rugby since I was around 11 years old, and by ‘eck that’s a few years ago.

(Sings) “O Canada…” Sorry, that’s all the words I know.  I like everyone from everywhere (I’m from Tennessee). I like Canadian bacon…we have it on pizza here; it appears to be ham. *g* Our bacon is much more crispy, salty, and greasy and therefore more fun and artery-clogging (”...these are a few of my favorite things…”)
I won’t make fun of what some folks call “football” around the globe, mainly because those sports have been around longer and were the ancestors of our version. The main difference in my opinion would be that in the US version of football, the crippling, life-threatening injuries are more likely to occur on the playing field than in the stands.
BTW, not all of us Tennesseans are hillbillies (well, I am, but not all of us are).

Don’tcha just love OT threads?

Thanks for the memory…that was a classic commercial. 

Here’s another hockey themed one I really liked, the “Jerseyed” video:
