Canada made some serious headway toward actually being taken seriously at Wednesday night’s Toronto Maple Leafs game.

When technical difficulties threatened to derail “The Star-Spangled Banner,” our neighbor to the north swooped in with a huge save.


Classy move, Toronto. I couldn’t sing past the first two words of “O Canada,” and I only know those because they’re in the title.

Even though they’ve literally piggybacked off our success for the past two hundred years, we need to stop making fun of Canada for being America’s little brother and give them the recognition they rightfully deserve.

Batman had Robin. The Lone Ranger had Tonto. America has Canada.

From this point forward, you’ve officially been upgraded to the greatest sidekick in the world, eh?
