Darn Canadians. Too polite for your own good. Would a hokey player roll over and say, no no you were at the goal first go ahead and shoot I won't block you. Come on Sly I want to see a good body check. Stand up for what is yours.
My grandfather-in-law told me once, "Canadians are polite until we watch hockey." He was 90 years old and yelling at the TV during the Stanley cup.
