Question of the Day

According to the Canadian Nielsen equivalent (BBM Canada), a staggering 50% of the country watched Sidney Crosby et al defeat the United States in breathtaking fashion (read: overtime) to win the only medal that mattered Olympic Gold Medal in Men’s hockey. Which naturally begs the question: Combining the knowledge gleaned from Sunday’s Closing Ceremonies (Moose, and mounties, and beavers! Oh, my!) along with the usual array of stereotypes perpetuated by the likes of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, what on earth do we think the other half of the country was doing?

    Well if HIMYM taught me anything, those Canadians not watching the game were either at the mall or Tim Hortons.

    just 50% !? That doesn’t sound right… perhaps the other half were out watching at bars or house parties?

  • B-Ri

    The other half of the country accidently turned off their lights and were too scared to search for the tv remote.

    Working? Although I’m sure it seemed like a national holiday, Tim Hortons and Walmart Canada probably didn’t agree.

    Free Health Care and Canadian Gold. Canada FTW!

    Isn’t it Sidney Crosby, not Sydney? Isn’t misspelling his name now a federal offense in Canada?

    Would you buy the excuse that I’m still hungover? Thanks for the heads up

  • Liz

    You mean there was someone who didn’t watch the game?

    Working? Certainly not it was a Sunday. That’s beaver wrestling night. :)
