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.

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.

Genie Bouchard Tennis

Today’s babe is Eugenie Bouchard, a 22-year old Canadian tennis player who obviously wants to jump my bones. And really, can you blame her?

Eugenie “Genie” Bouchard (born February 25, 1994) is a Canadian professional tennis player who is currently ranked no. 42 in the world. At the 2014 Wimbledon Championships, Bouchard became the first Canadian to reach the finals of a Grand Slam in singles, finishing runner-up to Petra Kvitová.

Genie was born and raised in Montreal, so she probably fluent in French… kissing.

Eugenie Bouchard

There are women who look good in bikinis, and women who should never, under any circumstances, even enter the bikini section. Eugenie should wear them twenty-eight hours a day, eight days a week…
