Here is a thing noteworthy American Arik from the Fourth Line Blog wrote:
“Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!—All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.”
Abraham Lincoln wrote the above lines long before Canada was even a twinkling in the eyes of the British Parliament. Had he known the Great White North unfortunately situated above America would someday be given up on by a country in Europe (the same one that fought tooth and nail to hold on to the Glorious United States of America), he would likely not have changed a thing.
Canada just isn’t threatening.
And yet, fellow Americans, we find ourselves facing a Terrible Canadian Invasion this month of December. The Canadian national junior team will be invading the city of Buffalo followed by their hordes of pasty-faced fans, who have not seen the Sun, which shines so lovingly on Our American States, in months.
They will bring with them their “Tim Horton’s,” “Donchaknows,” and candy in the shape of eggs. They will discuss terrible politics, call hats “touques,” and pour maple syrup over literally everything. Worst of all, they cheer for a team not wearing the Stars and Stripes. This cannot stand; it is an affront to us all.
We successfully struck a blow to the Canadian ego a year ago, when Great American Hero John Carlson scored the overtime winner that pierced the hearts of so many Canadians. They dare push back into our lands, like the Confederate Armies in Gettysburg. But this will be a foolhardy mistake on their part: America stands strong. Heroes such as Jerry D’Amigo, John Ramage, and Jack Campbell will remain a strong wall of Red, White and Blue and they only ask for one thing in return- that you stand behind them.
