#tiethursday – Feb 6 – U-S-A! U-S-A!

Back on track in February! I am here to please the people. In honor of the Olympics, let’s show some American pride!

Oh my gosh, are you fapping to this?I’m bringing back the button-down. Hope you enjoy it.

I’m not sure if it was entirely intentional, but I sported the good ol’ red, white and blue today. Which is fitting, since the 2014 Winter Olympics have officially started.

I often, well sometimes, get doubted about my allegiances in international competitions. Let’s stop that. I’m rooting for the USA. Always have, despite my Canadian heritage.

While proud to be the offspring of two Canadians, and a fan of Canadian things (hockey, beer, being friendly, universal healthcare), I never put Canada above the USA in sports. I was born in the USA and have always lived within its borders, so I consider myself an American first and foremost. The final of the gold medal game in Vancouver was a heartbreaker, and I didn’t take any solace in the fact that my “back-up” team had won. Hopefully those bad memories can be expunged this winter.

So, game on, World! U-S-A! U-S-A!
