I think Americans have some preconceived notions about Canadians: they’re overly friendly, beer-drinking, beaver-trapping hockey players. I don’t know about the beaver trapping, or the beer drinking, but I will say that the hockey playing thing is probably 100% true!
When a 50-to-70-car pileup in Quebec Tuesday forced police to shut down a huge stretch of the road in both directions, stranded motorists decided to pass the time by retrieving their hockey sticks from their trunks and engaging in an impromptu game on the ice-covered pavement.
Why do Canadians just HAPPEN to have hockey sticks in their cars? Is that for real, or did a hockey team all get stuck in the same place at the same time? Oh our friendly neighbors to the north… they always entertain me.
