Yesterday was Canada DayÂ but we are just getting around to celebrating today, which seems kind of appropriate somehow.Â Considering we live as far as North Americanly possible from our Canadian neighbors, and taking into account that fact checking is for suckers, we can only assume thatÂ Canada Day isÂ the celebration of Wayne Gretzky’s birthday, or an annual moose migration or some such sort.Â In honor of such a joyous occassionÂ for those free-health-care-having Canucks, we have compiled a list ofÂ some of our favorite moments in Canadian sports history…now with less hockey!
- The CFL’s failed attempt to dive into America.Â Ladies and gentlemen, your Shreveport Pirates!
- The Montreal Expos.Â A fledgelingÂ franchise who was mired in a bad market and had virtually no fans is now a fledgeling franchise who is mired in a bad market with virtually no fans.Â Lets relive the magic together shall we.
- Blatant performance enhancements on Canada’s greatest treasure.
- Hockey fights
- Steve Nash, winning 2 MVP’s on hustle and bad haircuts is always better than winning them on merit.Â Plus he dated this at one point.
The single most significant moment in Canadian sports history after the jump…
involves men wearing tights…
Suck it Canada.
