In Topic: Canada sets record

28 February 2010 - 10:29 PM

Very proud to be Canadian tonight! 14 Gold medals is impressive and obviously winning mens hockey was a relief! USA did a lot better than I think anyone expected and had me sweating bullets for the whole 3rd period and OT. s***ty that Crosby scored but glad to have it regardless.

Congratulations to USA representing their country so greatly. Top of the medal count is definitely something to be proud of! Canada will hopefully be their one day. Best Olympics I can remember in a long time though.

The 2 week break from the NHL has been great but definitely excited to get back into it now smile.gif Bring on the Avs!!!

Milbury once went into the stands during a game and beat a guy with a shoe. What do you expect from that f***?

Like I said last night, they say worse things about Milbury on Long Island.


hahahaha to those who also wanna see this:

I don't think Eurotrash and white trash are equivalent. Do you know what the latter means?


From my understanding Eurotrash is kind of the opposite of Whitetrash, being wealthy Euro-Americans opposed to poor Caucasian Americans. Nonetheless, it is definitely a derogatory term and shouldn't be used by national media.

He was using the term in reference to how they were playing at that point. He was not referring to how they play in general.


I know how he meant it. But suppose Canada played horrible hockey tonight, is it ok for a European commentator to say they played White trash hockey??

Definitely agree the Russians played horrible tonight but to use the term "Eurotrash" to describe their play.. that's crossing some lines I'd like to think.
