how dare u have a better body than me when i don’t work out at all
Remember the Jonathan Toews-LeBron James meme that arose after their respective championships last season? It was a Twitter picture of a handwritten sheet that claimed Toews said “we” 14 times and never said “I” in his post-championship-winning press conference, while LeBron said “I” 18 times and never said “we.” It was gleefully re-tweeted by hockey fans, by hockey broadcasters, by hockey players, by thousands and thousands.
Funny thing: in LeBron’s post-game transcript he said “we” 16 times, by my count; in his on-ice interview on the CBC right after winning Toews said “I” five times. And neither number meant anything.
So why do hockey fans do this? Why does basketball, a sport in which Canada is surging, need to be torn down to lift up hockey? There’s a racial component underlying some of it, which is sad and ignorant, but why? Is it insecurity? A need to create and fend off an other? Hockey is built on an incredibly strong sense of community, on a powerful sense of team versus individual, and those are part of what makes it great. And whenever this debate rises up, a part of hockey decides that hockey’s greatness alone isn’t enough.” —

nothing, just his usual self
i was talking about the people defending him on that don cherry post i reblogged
I despise him a lot. He’s homophobic and sexist and racist and yeah, I really hate him.
- He said he didn’t believe female reporters should be in the male dressing rooms.
- In 1993, he stated the Anglo residents of Sault Ste. Marie in Ontario spoke “the good language” (basically bashing the french and their language.)
- Made numerous racist remarks about french canadians and people of Québec such as calling them whiners and thieves.
- For example, in October 1991, he defended Eric Lindros’ decision to shun the Quebec Nordiques by saying ‘They don’t want our signs … they don’t want our language and then they can’t understand why an 18-year-old kid from Ontario doesn’t want to go there. Get with it.’
- During the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, two Russian cross-country skiers tested positive on a drug test and were disqualified. Don Cherry commented on the issue by saying “I’ve been trying to tell you for so long about the Russians. What kind of people they are and you just love them in Canada with your multiculturalism.” He later said he didn’t regret a word of that declaration.
- Also he called the Russians ‘quitters’.
- After seeing New York Islanders player Zigmund Palffy kiss teammate Travis Green on the lips after scoring against the New Jersey Devils, Cherry said: “I know those guys who wear visors are sweeties, but that’s a little too much.”
- In 1989, Winnipeg Jets’ owner Barry Shenkarow threatened to sue Cherry for referring to the team’s assistant coach, Finn Alpo Suhonen, as “some kind of dog food.”
- Said the best thing about the Canadian Football League was that there were “no Russians or Swedes playing.”
it’s very frustrating being a girl and trying to flirt with other girls like. you tell them, ur cute. ‘Aw thank you’ no. no i’m being gay with you. homo intended. damn it
Cereal tea bags are serially (pun) the best idea.
For when you only want the milk at the end
I’m not sure if this is worse or slight less worse than the “boil your egg in coffee” idea
