Canadian Fans

Yes, Sid the Kid made the Canadian fans happy, but that’s not quite the effect he had on his southern neighbors. While deserving credit where credit is due for scoring the gold medal-winning goal, I’m not sure Crosby endeared himself to Team USA hockey fans, no matter how fair-weather* they were. A quick glance at Facebook, which has become one of the first places to go when looking for public reaction to popular culture events, finds this gem, called the Petition to Not Allow Sidney Crosby back into the United States.

Ashleigh McIvor > Team Canada Hockey

Ashleigh McIvor

Dear Canada,

Instead of waiting for your Olympic Hockey team to justify your attendance at the 2010 Winter Olympics, you might want to focus more of your attention on someone whose actually won something. In this case, Ashleigh McIvor has everything you could ask for. She’s the best in her sport (Women’s Ski Cross) — at least, as of today — and she’s incredibly photogenic, on top of being quite attractive. If, my Canadian friends, you’re unsure on how to capitalize on her win, take some lessons from us, your American neighbors, and the marketing blitz we used with Lindsey Vonn.

Team Canada’s Tremendously Tremendous Collision

Team Canada

While the majority of us are still basking in the glow of Team USA’s big time hockey win against Team Canada last night — no, I don’t care if it was only a preliminary round; Team USA hadn’t beaten Team Canada in Olympics Hockey in 50 years — I figured it would be fun to have some more fun at the expense of Team Canada, and thanks to the fine folks who upload at Imgur, we have just thing: An animated gif of that three-man collision from the second quarter.

Because of the image’s size (almost three megabytes), it’s coming up after the jump.
