Your Olympic Babe O’ The Day

Meet Adriana Leon, a member of the Canadian soccer team who denied the U.S. squad a place in the gold medal game. She and her teammates should be recognized as heroes.

Adriana Kristina Leon (October 2, 1992) is a Canadian professional soccer player who plays for West Ham United and the Canadian women’s national soccer team.

Leon was called to the Canada U-20 camp in December 2009 and played the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup for Canada. In December 2012, she was called up to the senior Canadian team for the 2013 Four Nations Tournament, making her first international appearance against China on January 12, 2013, scoring the game-winning goal in a 1–0 victory.

At the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Championship Leon scored 6 goals and finished second in tournament’s golden boot race behind Alex Morgan of the United States who scored 7 goals.

Growing up, Adriana played soccer, rugby, and ice hockey. She’s my kind of gal.

To Catch A Thief

A Canadian thief decided he was going to swipe a package from a residential porch, and he would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling snow piles.

This is an incredible video of the most embarrassing package theft in history, where not only did the thief not get the package, he also got stuck in a snow bank during the getaway before being arrested by police. It’s also the most Canadian video ever, where the thief is wearing a mask to be socially responsible and the victim even offers to get a shovel to help clear the snow. The only way it could be more Canadian is if the thief was wearing a hockey jersey and the guy filming was sipping some Tim Hortons coffee.

This dude is probably the worst scout of al time. He tries to swipe the package in the middle of the day, doesn’t see the Ring camera, and also doesn’t realize the homeowner watching him through the door. This is truly Home Alone territory here.

You can see the high-larious video below the fold…

Moose Outside Shoulda Told Ya

It would appear The Great White North is looking to cancel Christmas. Apparently the Chinese Wuhan Virus has either destroyed many Canuck economies, or scared them into submission.

Seriously Canada, be better.

Roger Wiebe of Edmonton and his wife are cancelling Christmas this year because they can’t afford it.

Weibe said he lost his job at a medical supply warehouse in June due to a COVID-19-related work slowdown. His wife, a legal assistant, lost her job in February. Neither has been able to land another job as the pandemic drags on, and they’re struggling.

“We can’t afford presents or anything like that,” said Wiebe. “I don’t even think we’re going to be in the mood to even put up a tree or anything this year. … Christmas is going to be another day.”

While the Roger’s predicament is obviously heartbreaking, my problem here is their give-up attitude. Like many countries across the globe, Canadian politicians have instilled an irrational fear in their citizens. They purposefully crashed their economies and locked people in their houses for eight months now with no end in sight. Remember in March we were told “Fifteen days to stop the spread?”

This “pandemic” has become completely political. It’s less about the virus and more about control. Hell, some of our most despicable politicians – like the murderous Andrew Cuomo – is now saying the Chinese Wuhan Virus may not be so bad. Amazing he said that right after the election.

Many other Canadians won’t go as far as cancelling Christmas, but will have pared-down celebrations this year as fears of the virus, physical gathering restrictions and a weakened economy put a damper on holiday plans.

Look, if the Wiebe family wants to shut themselves off from the world, that’s their prerogative. But unless they’re over seventy years old, and have health problems, this virus will likely not kill them.

There is no way I’m canceling Christmas. In fact, I’d like it to be the biggest Christmas ever, because you can be damned sure Trudeau and his politician buddies will be spending their time with multitudes of their families, friends, and coworkers.

We’ve Found Boba Fett!

An enormous “Sarlaac Pit” cave has been discovered in Canada, after Ozzie Smith fell into it.

This is a short helicopter flyover of a massive cave discovered in Canada during a routine caribou count (how else?) that researchers believe had never been seen by humans previously. It’s been nicknamed the ‘Sarlaac Pit’, presumably by some Star Wars fan who thinks every hole in the ground looks like a sarlaac pit.

The cave is so big that its mouth alone measures 100 meters (328 feet) by 60 meters (197 feet). But most remarkably of all, experts believe that despite its gigantic size, it is the very first time the cave has been seen by human eyes.

[Geologist Catherine] Hickson suspects that until very recently, the area would have been covered in snow all year round, which would have masked the mouth of the cave and kept it hidden. Between the snow and its less than practical location, the cave has managed to remain free of humans – until this chance discovery.

The location of the cave…is being kept under wraps, at least for the time being. The researchers hope this will help protect the (as of now) untouched natural wonder and offer experts a chance to examine it closer.

Video of the cave’s interior is below the fold…

Every Cloud Has A Silver Whining

Meet Jocelyne Larocque.

Unlike the majority of Canadians, Jocelyne grew up without a firm understanding of decorum, sportsmanship, and class. The result was on display Wednesday when she threw a temper tantrum after losing to the U.S. women’s hockey team.

The USA women’s hockey team won its first gold medal since 1998 after a thrilling shootout victory against Canada late Wednesday night. The win snapped Canada’s run of four-straight Olympic gold medals, and the country’s Jocelyne Larocque was not too happy about it.

After the loss, the Canada participants were awarded with silver medals placed around their neck. But Larocque immediately took hers off, and continued to not wear it for the rest of the ceremony. She told reporters after the game why she didn’t want to wear the second-place medal.

While lacrosse is Canada’s national sport – a fact I adore – hockey is king. What kind of message does this send to young girls just getting into the sport?

Last year, Erik’s soccer team took second place in a tournament. After the trophies were given out, he turned to a teammate and said, “Second place is just the first loser.” He said it as a joke, but he knows if he ever did something like this – at any level – I would end him.

Yes, you play to win, and yes, you give it your all, but true losers aren’t the athletes who fail to win; they’re the ones who cannot lose gracefully.

Your Olympic Babe O’ The Day

Today’s babe helps us finish out all fifteen sports in the Olympic Games, and it’s safe to say she is one of the hottest women in PeyongChang: Canadian figure skater Tessa Virtue.

US Women Beclown Themselves

Regular readers know I am a tremendous hockey fan. I’ve been watching games since before grade school, and I think I have a good grasp of the sport, the players, and the traditions.

As such, I have been trying to watch hockey at the Olympics, and I caught the US-Canada women’s game last night.

Watch out world, the U.S. and Canadian women’s hockey teams have the Winter Olympics’ most intense rivalry.

With National Hockey League (NHL) players not taking part in the games in South Korea and a lot of rosters filled out with unfamiliar players, all eyes will turn to the ladies who are expected to meet in the gold medal game.

I sincerely hope this is not the case, because they meet in the gold medal game every damned time. Plus, the previous night’s game between Switzerland and Finland was a far more entertaining game.

The game ended with fans of both teams holding their breath at the scrum in front of the net, with the U.S. players desperately trying to put one past Canadian goalie Geneviève Lacasse as the players knocked each other around.

Here it comes…

Canada’s players lined up for the traditional postgame handshake as the U.S. players waited by the bench, calling for a review of what they thought was a goal in the final seconds.

There it is. The game was effectively over, and after the referees separated both teams, Canada lined up for the postgame handshake. The (ugly) Americans skated to their bench and demanded the last play be reviewed, and the referees obliged.

Once that decision was made, the teams could still skate through the handshake line. If the call was reversed, they would go back and begin overtime. But no, the Americans stayed by their bench, while Canada was still lined up at center ice. The review process was uncomfortably long – maybe three minutes – and there Canada stood, and stood, waiting for the Americans to find their sportsmanship.

After the call was not reversed, the United States finally skated over to the handshake line. It was arguably the most classless, embarrassing display I have seen in the Olympics since, well, forever.

Look, I get you don’t like each other, and I get things get emotional during hockey games, but taking your puck and going home while Canada is waiting to shake your hands is a complete dick move. I won’t be making time to watch US women’s hockey anymore, and I will begin rooting for their opponents.

Classless. Simply classless.

In Canada, No One Is Poutine Out

Despite its seemingly pleasant disposition, its dreamy Prime Minister, and its miles and miles of snow-kissed plains, Canada is not a hotbed of sexual satisfaction.

Lucia O’Sullivan, a psychology professor at the Fredericton university, said more than three-quarters of young men and women struggle with bad sex lives — with one or more “persistent and distressing” problems in sexual functioning.

The problems are directly related to the performance of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

“We have this image that partnered sexual life for young people, particularly at the beginning, is fun, pleasurable and really hedonistic,” she said Wednesday. “But what we found once we started tracking them over time is that many young people have sexual problems they are dealing with.”

Common problems for men included low sexual satisfaction, low desire and problems in erectile function, while women reported an inability to reach orgasm, low satisfaction and pain.

Yeah, my former girlfriends has problems with pain, if you known what I mean… the pain of having to deal with my unruly back hair and shriveled dingus.

The Grate White North

Despite Prime Minister Hipster’s warm embrace of immigrants and “refugees,” nearly half of all Canadian citizens believe illegal immigrants should be deported. Gee Canada, when did you become so racist?

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

A significant minority, four out of 10 respondents, said the border crossers could make Canada “less safe,” underlining the potential political risk for Trudeau’s Liberal government.

The increasing flow of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months has become a contentious issue in Canada.

Unlike leftist politicians, most people see what has happened to Germany, Sweden, and France and they’re scared witless. They should be. The European Muslim invasion has changed those countries forever, and the same can easily happen here.

Winter In Canada Is A Real Drag

atv-towing-couch-through-drive-thruTwo drunken Canadian men – but I repeat myself – were arrested after they were found riding a couch… towed by an ATV… through a McDonald’s drive-thru.

Man, you can’t do anything fun in Canada.

Two New Brunswick men were arrested after riding on a couch that was being towed by an ATV. The unconventional conveyance was used to make a McDonalds run and ended on the frozen Mirimichi River where the two inebriated occupants of the couch were arrested.

“A MPF officer observed an ATV that was towing a couch, with two males sitting on the couch, going through the drive through at MacDonald’s restaurant. As the MPF officer approached, the ATV fled from the drive trough and managed to cross the highway then it ventured onto the frozen Miramichi River.”

Seizing someone’s ATV just for dragging a couch through a fast food drive thru seems a bit fascist, but this is Canada after all.

If this happened in Ontario I would be sending out an APB for Jenn, but since it occurred in New Brunswick, it’s probably one of the local hockey players.
