Canada: Losing isn't Everything, It's the Only Thing

Long Ago, I travelled often to Canada and late at night after a few beers, reporters [I was one at the time] from the Great White North would tell me that the Canadians were obsessed with losing the way Americans are obsessed with winning.

In yet another nod to the protection of fledgling self-esteem, an Ottawa children’s soccer league has introduced a rule that says any team that wins a game by more than five points will lose by default. The Gloucester Dragons Recreational Soccer league’s newly implemented edict is intended to dissuade a runaway game in favour of sportsmanship. The rule replaces its five-point mercy regulation, whereby any points scored beyond a five-point differential would not be registered.

Remember when something fabulous happened, the response used to be "only in America!"

Whenever anything pitiful and pathetic beyond forgiveness occurs in public life nowadays in North America, the instinct is to say "only in Canada!"

And can you imagine a loser-obsessed Canucktard behind by five points kicking the ball into his own goal to win the game by default. The cowardly craven groveling yellowbelly Canadian national ethos makes this very easy to imagine!!!

Where losing is admired more than winning, no wonder the Canucktards haven't had a Stanley Cup since the last Millennium. The ethos of losing paralyzes their teams---and nearby Cleveland, Detroit and Buffalo seem to be catching the Canucktard disease by osmosis!!!
