For random Canadiana, wait until he finds out about a Bunny-hug.
I learned about the bunny-hug a few months ago. It turns out
Manitoba Saskatchewan (one of those flyover provinces) is a strange place.
Thanks for the info, Kate! Surely this will help me continue on the path to enlightenment, eh?
The more Canadian Ian becomes, the less of Tom Brady the rest of us get! So please keep enlightening!
I think most Saskatchwanites will be highly offended if they hear you think the Bunny-hug comes from Manitoba.
Maybe he'll start touting another New England quarterback legend who's also a Toronto Argonaut legend:
funny good one Mark. Argo and legend used in the same sentence.
...more like anything from the CFL being described as legendary.
Is there a more insignificant (er...pointless) pro sports league in North America? Who grows up playing 3 down football??...all the Americans who make up the brunt of the league?
Odd little bit of Canadiana that CFL.
(Spoken like a proudly dispassionate Argo fan.)
Actually, all American football is terrible. I despise the NFL.
Being from Ontario I had to Google bunnyhug.
W is correct.
I'm becoming so Canadian that I might start to take a vague interest in ice hockey.
Nah, pick curling instead.
Well Ian, your home team is one top pairing defenceman away from a Stanley Cup.
Given that there is only one Stanley cup, you can't do fun stuff like this:
Using the term ice hockey and implying only having one Stanley Cup is a negative should be enough to get this guy deported.
There's only one Presentation Cup
(the effective Stanley Cup), in any case; and a new trophy is not made with each championship, as is done with the NBA, NFL, and non-sport MLB.
Ice hockey, in contrast with hockey.
No no no that’s field hockey. Ice hockey is just hockey.
Note the names of their international federations, FIH
Well yeah... but colloquially...
Do they have quarterbacks in field hockey?
There should be a Canadian Heritage Minute about Canadians getting annoyed by others using Ice Hockey.
Ian, it is crucial to watch as many of these as possible to get up to speed for when you hear "Doctor Doctor I smell burnt toast!"
I think the heritage minutes and the video series “Canada: A People’s History” are the only times I feel a swell of patriotic pride. Great music / narrators.
