Today is Columbus Day in the United States and Thanksgiving in Canada. Seeing as I do not have off from work for either I decided to scrap my post on the misconceptions about Columbus and decided to post this blog for our neighbors to the North. Oh, Canada here are my TOP 10 things that I am thankful for. TOP 10 THINGS I THANK CANADA FOR (in no particular order)

    HOCKEY

    Even though Lacrosse IS REALLY your national past-time, I love the fastest team sport. Not so much for the Maple Leaf fans.

    SCTV

    When Saturday Night Live sucked SCTV saved. Who can forget the players: John Candy, Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, Harold Ramis, Dave Thomas, Rick Moranis, and Martin Short. Remember the characters they created: Bob and Doug McKenzie, The Shmenge Brothers, Count Floyd and Ed Grimley among so many others.

    GOOD NEIGHBORS TO HAVE

    We never talk about building a wall for you guys eh!? And it’s good to know that if the United States ever runs out of natural resources we can just ask you.

    *Footnote: I have heard that Montreal has some of the most beautiful women in the world, and Vancouver some of the best clubs (see #1)
