What's up with the unrest in Vancouver over a silly hockey game? Nobody even watches it.

Hockey is to Canadians what the NFL is to Americans.

Vancouver should have contacted us here in Buffalo, NY. We know how deal with Championship (professional team) failures. Actually, we're quite good at it.

The Cubs are amazingly futile, but the Bills actually lost 4 Super Bowls IN A ROW.

Yeah, that business in Vancouver was embarrassing and surprising.

That was agonizing to watch the Bills do that, and I'm not even a Bills fan.

That comment is totally unsuited for a Canadian speaker manufacturers audio forum.

And the images of that drunk guy jumping up and down on a burning car shirtless, his flab bouncing all over the place, was totally unsuited for viewing anywhere, yet they still showed it.

Society really is going all to hell isn't it.

I would say Hockey is far more important to Canadians than football is to Americans, jmo. As for sports that nobody watches you can put basketball on the top of my list, followed by football.
