Fark_Guy_Rob: Meh - it's the price we must pay for being the best. As much as everyone loves the popular high school quarterback, there are endless numbers of jealous dorks, nerds and dweebs who secretly want to take him down a peg.Haters gonna hate.
indarwinsshadow: Meaning every single Canadian Olympian will now be the target of anti-American aggression. Meanwhile, some smug asshole American here on fark will be mouthing off with clever witticisms like "who cares about Canada"? Yeah, you really know how to build that loyalty Americans. Nothing like using us when it's convenient for you. Yet, you treat us most of the time like shiat and tell us how we're somehow an inferior country. Except when it comes to being safe in another country. Nice.
Publikwerks: What is Team Canada's uniform? Are they just going to wear jeans and the hockey jersey?
born_yesterday: ...maybe erode some of the inexplicable support by the right for Putin...
Lith: Those are some seriously ugly unis. I'd even suggest not wearing them to the events. They're even worse than the Norwegian curling pants.

Clemkadidlefark: Running away and hiding is a distinctly Obama-Administration trait.
Clemkadidlefark: Running away and hiding is a distinctly Obama-Administration trait.Thank God we had real men and women in WWII or we'd all be speaking German ..
Mugato: (well if you ignore Africa).
FormlessOne: Clemkadidlefark: Running away and hiding is a distinctly Obama-Administration trait.Thank God we had real men and women in WWII or we'd all be speaking German .....never mind that, of course, we ran and hid during WWII until we were forced to respond. The war started in 1935, with a number of military actions by Axis countries that ultimately precipitated all-out conflict in 1939. You know what we did in 1939, when everyone else was fighting? Yeah, the American Neutrality Act. We were happy to sell them toys, but help them? Feh. Roosevelt promised to keep us out of the war entirely."Fark them, they're foreigners" - and that was the opinion of the American public until well into 1941, while our European allies were getting their asses pounded by the Axis. We took all sorts of economic actions - we stopped selling gas to the Japanese in 1941, for example - but, let's face it, we couldn't be arsed.If Japan hadn't attacked Pearl Harbor, we wouldn't have been militarily involved at all in WWII. We already had a complex web of treaties and agreements in place, and as long as they weren't violated, we were quite happy to let Hitler stomp his friggin' jackboots all over Europe and Russia. It's only when those treaties and agreements were finally violated, when we had actual dead American soldiers, could we be arsed to give a rat's rancid rectum about global hegemony. We then bolstered the Allies, and became the first and last country on Earth to use nuclear weapons for warfare, on civilian populations."Real men", indeed.But, when you're flinging derp, revisions are just part of the process.
Lifeless: Does anyone here truly believe that the Russians like Canadians more than Americans? Have you ever even farking heard of hockey?
ausfahrk: I actually tried that in Russia last summer -- told some hustly street vendor in Saint Petersburg that my wife and I were from Canada. His answer: "Where?"
Frank N Stein: If we're talking about WWII I'm going to lay out a crazy thing I believe: We should have listened to Patton, mobilized the German army, and fought the Russians while we were there.
Mugato: NBAH: For some reason they also said they're going to punish Russia for Somalia, Afghanistan and the Middle East. Hmmmm...Talk about a delayed reaction. According to the documentary Rambo 3, Russia was in Afghanistan in the late 80s.
catmander: indarwinsshadow:Typical American replies though. Nice to see you stay true to sh*t head form.Please. No more 'sh*t head' talk from America's hat. Thanks.
silverjets: Mugato: NBAH: For some reason they also said they're going to punish Russia for Somalia, Afghanistan and the Middle East. Hmmmm...Talk about a delayed reaction. According to the documentary Rambo 3, Russia was in Afghanistan in the late 80s.I guess it depends on your definition of "late 80s" but I'm pretty sure most reasonable people would consider 1987-1989 to be the late 80s in which case, the Soviets were still in Afghanistan with the last of their troops leaving in early 89.
Silly_Sot: WTF, Russia? What the hell has happened to you? You used to be the meanest, baddest bully around. Nobody picked shiat with you on your soil, because they knew that if they did, they'd be burying their own children.When did you go full pussy, Russia?
jaytkay: lack of warmth: I thought the tradition was no hookers, instead the athletes 'toured the globe' in their little village. Think, would you want a hooker or a hottie from another country every night?Thousands of 20-somethings with the best bodies on the planet - the night-time games have to be pretty spectacular./ Jealous
SirEattonHogg: I realize Subby just made the headline in jest, but I was living abroad for several years when various spineless idiots would suggest sewing a Canadian flag on their backpack or telling everyone they were Canadian.Why travel abroad if you are so scared of your own nationality or that the next person is going to kill or harm you? I detest people like that.
dustman81: That's basically what the Olympics are - one big orgy. Staring in the 2000, the IOC put in a standing order of 100,000 condoms per Olympics. ESPN Magazine wrote an article about it last year: http://espn.go.com/olympics/summer/2012/story/_/id/8133052/athletes-s p ill-details-dirty-secrets-olympic-village-espn-magazine
veryequiped: As a Canadian I take issue with this, as Americans are globally roknowned to be loud, brash and pompous, and now they're going to be that way wearing Canadian clothing.
