They acquired Troy Tulowitzki and David Price this week,
but they'll probably still get screwed by the Yankees.

Canuckistan trying to compete with America in baseball?  Shittus pizza, they can't even compete in hockey anymore.

The only redeeming part of a North Mexico World Series would be seeing that lot of Canuckleheads wearing their tuques, swigging Molson and fattening themselves up on poutine from Tim Horton's.  Eh?

An American hockey team full of Canadians wins the Stanley Cup and it's supposed to be a hit on Canada.

A Canadian baseball team with a grand total of like 3 Canadians on it's 40 man roster makes a run and it's supposed to be a hit on Canada.

I realize the igloo, maple syrup and ice smack has gotten old but now you're just reaching for something that isn't there......nice try  ;D

Maple syrup comes from Vermont and Maine.

I know Canaduh can sometimes be oversimplified, but please explain why Hamilton named its CFL team the Tiger-Cats.  I thought a tiger was a cat, no further explanation necessary.  Is there a Tiger-Dog or a Tiger-Ferret out there somewhere?

Now if they were the Hamilton Ligers...that would be different.

After over a decade-long drought, the Hamilton Tigers won the Grey Cup championship game in 1928, 1929 and 1932. The 1941 season saw the Tigers suspend play for the remainder of World War II. The Hamilton Tigers folded, largely because a number of players had gone into the armed services. It is believed by some that the failure of the Tigers is what caused the IRFU to be dissolved, and the Eastern Rugby Football Union (ERFU) to be formed.[9] Because of the absence of the Tigers, a new club called the Hamilton Wildcats were formed to play in the ORFU in 1941. The Wildcats were given permission to use players from the Hamilton Tigers, but not the traditional black and yellow colors of the Tigers. In 1943, the Hamilton Flying Wildcats, stocked with Royal Canadian Air Force personnel, won the 31st Grey Cup.

Things returned to normal in 1945 when the IRFU and the Hamilton Tigers resumed play while the Wildcats (no longer known as the Flying Wildcats) continued on in the ORFU. In 1948 the Hamilton Wildcats joined the IRFU to replace the Tigers who joined the Ontario Rugby Football Union. The Tigers and Wildcats switch of unions only lasted two years (194849) as both clubs struggled. At this time, the Tigers and Wildcats competed for fans, talent and bragging rights so vehemently that neither team could operate on a sound financial level.[9][13] Consequently, The Tigers and Wildcats amalgamated in 1950 to form the Hamilton Tiger-Cats that would compete in the IRFU.[11] Under the guidance of prominent and distinguished local leaders such as Ralph "Super-Duper" Cooper and F.M. Gibson, it was decided that the two teams should merge as one that would represent Hamilton. Cooper was named team president and Carl Voyles served as head coach and general manager. A contest was held among the fans to determine the colors for the newly formed football club; the result was a combination of the two clubs' colors: yellow, black, red, white and blue. Over the years, the colors have evolved to gold, black and white and remain to this day.[14] In 1950, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats begin play in Ivor Wynne Stadium.

It's gonna be a good race to the line.

That's Tulo's MO. He's 24K gold-plated tin. I'm certain he will be on the DL within the week. I was sweating it out last year when the Yankees were toying with the idea of trading for him.
