Canadians treat their love of sports in the best way possible. They are gracious hosts but not at all sore losers. They come together at national tragedies, but they aren’t extra nice to annoying celebrities just because it's good for marketing.
Down below are seven instances when Canadians demonstrated exemplary behavior in sports:
They cheered for Denis Godla after the young Slovakian goalie's impressive display (39 saves) saved his team from a thorough beating.
They helped complete the U.S. national anthem when the singer's microphone malfunctioned.
They know how to give a tribute to a fallen hero after a national tragedy.
And they also know how to support their team. Just a couple hundred Toronto Raptors fans managed to silence to 20,000 Cleveland Cavalier fans in Cleveland last year.
And when a Russian skier fell at Sochi Olympics, a Canadian coach gave him a spare ski so he could finish in front of his fans.
Even Canada's sports networks are polite:
But they also know how to play rough. So when Justin Bieber showed up to perform a medley of his "hits" at a Canadian football game, they booed him thoroughly. It probably serves him right for ruining their day.
