Youve not tried real Canadian bacon obviously lol

 

You're both wrong. Bacon in general in this entire continent blows. Bacon from overseas is where it's at. What we consider bacon out west is embarrassing lol

My family in Italy has pigs on their farm, I've had the most pure and freshest bacon ever. Unfortunately I don't live anywhere near Italy, nor do I have a farm or pigs, so it's a pipe dream to assume I could get that regularly

Syrup is absolutely disgusting. Yeah, I said it lol

 

Do you not like waffles and pancakes? The Dutch probably like syrup more than Canadians really

You guys are making me hungry!  Let's get back to hockey, please.  


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

As I Canadian, I wish to apologize for the maturity of my fellow countrymen. They do not reflect the opinions of all of us. I wish to thank you for allowing us to participate on an American site for an American National Hockey League Team. I would be quite offended if you came in to our house and started rubbing it in. I must say I was quite impressed by the comments made until (I don't think I need to name names) certain posters started commenting. Try growing up and taking the high road, 

 

It does not seem to bother anyone yet and in fairness he did ask if he could post a picture. but the dead Eagle IMO is a tad too far if not  breaking some kinda of federal law (even if its fake). If it was my site I would have asked you to kindly take it down.

 

I wish to be sympathetic to my friends down south.

Keep your stick on the ice and enjoy Justin Beiber.

First, its illegal to kill the bald eagle, not to share a picture of one and if it was, the law enforcement agency who originally posted the photo would be just as guilty as me.

 

Second, if this thread had devolved into what it is now before I was done them I definitely wouldn't have posted them. I didn't want to contribute to the rubbing in at all. If the pictures are bothersome to any American's I'll happily take them down

 

Third, I agree with your first paragraph 100%

I heard this on today's post game on TSN1050 radio: Who is the only player in today's game who has never played in an NHL playoff game?

Well crap. That was a great game and crappy ending..... Well I ate my crow roasted with a touch of rosemary. Washed it down with more than a few drinks.

 

I said before that anything less than a silver would be a let down and it is. The slotting sucked, but what can you do. This game was between the 2 best teams by fair. Canada will destroy the Swedes.

Hey. Can we all at least agree that Canada’s hockey socks are stupid looking? The reverse white makes them look knee-less.

I think Sweden's going to win gold. Just a weird hunch. I don’t think Lundqvist can play any better than Quick or Gudlevskis but I think they will generate more offence, especially from the back end. They are a smart team with lots of veteran savvy that knows how to win on big ice. 

 

But we’ll see.

They are good for a couple bites, then I get tired of eating them. Same as popcorn for me. A handful or two is awesome. but beyond that, so much meh.

 

To make this post hockey related, yay two games left!!!

Nothing if you're a Canadian hockey fan, but the game isn't going to attract much ratings wise, which is what NBC and the NHL was hoping for.  Had USA/Russia been in the gold medal game, it might have been a different story.  But in general, outside of hockey cities like Detroit, Boston, etc, nobody really cares.  

If that's the case then, why would it matter?  If most of the USA doesn't care, but literally ALL of Canada would watch it, then TV in general will still get ratings, not just NBC and why would the NHL just want to have USA in there?  More than half of the NHL is Canadian players.   Not trying to rag on you, but I'm not seeing why it matters what 1 station would hope for and how you would know that the NHL would prefer that?  It may not be your intent, but it makes it sound like the only thing you think matters is USA.   Your team has come up through the ranks and solidified itself in a top 5 in the world, your hockey systems are great, but 1 Olympic game is gonna make or break that?  I don't buy it.  Gary Bettman has tried to shove hockey down Americans throats for years in non-traditional hockey markets and it doesn't work, so Olympics or not, they probably wouldn't tune in cause they likely don't know it's even on, and like you stated, don't care.

I don't understand why the gold medal game is first?  It's like putting a main act on before the opening band...

And while the US may be sad over the loss, at least you're not saddled with Rob Ford.

Great game. Battle to the end. Canada's overall defensive game is just suffocating(for both teams). Can't wait for Sunday!

 

ps. I think waffles/pancakes with syrup is one of the grossest things you can have for breakfast. Batter and syrup to start the day? No thanks.
