Spokane Chiefs Break Memorial Cup Trophy
U.S./Canadian Hostilities Reach Fever Pitch
We Americans can truly be jackasses when it comes to dealing with foreigners, but this just takes it to a whole new awesome level.
Yesterday the Spokane Chiefs became only the third U.S. team in 90 years to win the Canadian Hockey League Memorial Cup - in Canada (how ironic). And guess what the Spokane captain did almost as soon as he got his hands on the trophy - he broke it.
Bravo my friend.
Personally, I think this just raises the stakes in the inevitable war between Canada and the United States. They continue to call it the Canadian Hockey League despite American teams being in it, so we break their ugly-ass trophy in their country.
I fully expect an army of Canucks to come charging across the US/Canadian border tomorrow on armored moose.
