Canada has their own Thanksgiving? How unAmerican

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Since the Winnipeg Jets were coming to town, I thought I'd check in on our favorite bus centric town. While they may have had Slurpee-fest or whatever recently, tonight is Thanksgiving Eve in Canada. Yep, they have their own Thanksgiving. Except it is a direct slap in the face of God's greatest and favorite country, the United States of America.

First off, and this should be obvious, they don't celebrate Thanksgivings as intended. Theirs is in October, typically when we have Columbus day. The entire county doesn't even celebrate it! Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and other made up places based off Lord of the Rings locales don't acknowledge Canadian Thanksgiving. Oddly enough, Quebec does recognize it, but does not take it seriously. Then they straight up plagiarize from America, featuring football games throughout the day. Except it's Canadian football, which isn't even really a sport.

Their Canadian Thanksgiving, though, is based off of English harvest bullshit, which is not like our far superior November American Thanksgiving that feature our love of the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers. Those Canadians also celebrate Thanksgiving by shopping a ton in America because we have lower taxes. Actually, that is pretty damn American. Good job, Canada.

I'm glad you all learned something today.

Despite being a tight game that went to overtime, last night's Kings and Coyotes game could be summarized by taking a handful of sleeping pills without the fun high you subsequently get. Good thing the Kings won the Cup last year in crazy as fuck fashion, because they are making me hate watching hockey to start this year. Anyways, let's just get this over with.

Prediction: Kings got beat by the Sharks. Coyotes got beat by the Jets. Kings also sucked against the Coyotes. This means the Jets will beat the Kings. 4-1 Jets.
