Today is Thanksgiving in Canada
It’s another Muckin’ Funday here in America. Meanwhile, up in Canada, our neighbors to the north are celebrating Thanksgiving. As part of their never ending quest to be different from us, those wacky Canucks give thanks every year on the second Monday of October. And while they’re carving turkey, watching hockey, drinking Molson’s and complementing Uncle Bob on his bitchin’ mullet, here’s two great Canadian contributions we can all be thankful for: Rush and Neil Young.
Sure, we’re also thankful for Bryan Adams, Triumph, April Wine, The Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, the sport of Lacrosse and Seagrams. But mostly, we’re thankful for Rush and Neil Young. In fact, the combined greatness of Rush and Neil Young is almost enough for us to forgive Canada for subjecting us to William Shatner, Justin Bieber and Nickelback.
