Interesting article for the Canadians from this month's Reason, and I found the article on their website.

India and Pakistan have long been pretty good at hockey. Between them they won every gold medal from 1928 to 1968 and Pakistan won again in 1984. They've both fallen off a bit more recently, a mix of cricket getting a higher profile and other teams getting their shit together.

Last time the British men won gold (1988) was thanks to two goals in the final from Imran Sherwani, a Pakistani-descended newspaper shop owner from Stoke.

No Canadians have actually replied in this thread, proving my long-standing theory that underneath their innocent moose-fucking exterior, all Canadians are actually horrible racists.

The only reason our Canadian friends are not replying is because they're currently buying Big Gulps and expired $9 jars of mayonnaise at their local 7-Eleven stores. There's one on every corner in Canada, ya know.

The writer overstates hockey being "saved". Should have just focused more on writing about Singh, because that part was actually good.

No one give too fucks about field hockey or all the other stupid sports you talk about. If the sports you always seem to talk about are played by more people around the world than the North American-centric sports then the "sports talk" section of this site would be inundated with threads about field hockey, water polo, cricket, soccer, ping pong and men's synchronized swimming...since this IS an international message board, open to everyone around God's green earth.

The thread is headed up "hockey". That is field hockey. Not the bastardization played by people who got their asses kicked to the snowline. Not my fault if you berks don't know English. Case in point: "two" fucks.

I don't bother proofreading posts responding two the resident whiny Brit who always needs too "educate" and "remind" all us oafish North Americans on what all we have "bastardized" through the years from British culture, language and sport.`



Now go back to daydreaming about a weekend getaway with Heather Baron-Gracie on some nude beach in Tenerife while listening to 'Help' by the Ting-Tings.

The funny thing is that my grandmother was British, I've had friends who are immigrants from England and Ireland, and I've vacationed in England for 2 weeks and I never felt the slightest cultural gap whatsoever.  But when Kargol posts, it's like he's speaking another language.  I actually think he's from the UK section of Mars.

The best I can do is prescribe you all six series of Peaky fookin Blinders. Cillian Murphy in particular gets the Brummagem accent nailed.

That is a show I need to watch. So many friends have said nothing but good things about it.

It's crazy as I thought the show only started a couple years ago, but it's been around since 2013, and like Kargol said it has six "seasons".

Kargol is actually one of my favorite posters here. But I agree completely. I'm American, I don't speak English.
