Meanwhile in Canada

Here’s What Happens When Polite Canadians Try to Participate in Sports Twitter

It's cute when they try to be mean.

In case you didn’t spend the hours between noon and 2pm glued to your TV, the Canadian and American men’s Olympic hockey teams just faced off in a HIGHLY anxiety-provoking semifinal game.

Team Canada supporters took to Twitter attempting to be vicious and competitive with their pro-U.S. rivals, but — rather unsurprisingly — the results were still prettttttty polite:

Hey guys, SO sorry to intrude, but would you mind letting us score, maybe? If not, it’s totally okay. Sorry!

You can’t be that aggressive if you end it with a period.

This seems pretty apathetic.

Again, there’s a general lack of aggression here.

This isn’t so much insulting as it is a mere statement of facts.

It’s okay! You don’t have to feel uncomfortable!

America I am SO SO SORRY, but I just have to retweet this. Again, SORRY!
