UH OH Canada

Rock ’em sock ’em Canadian hockey icon Don Cherry recently got the axe from Hockey Night In Canada. Cherry’s an old time hockey guy. Eddie Shore. He’s also a flamboyant Canada first kind of guy. Sound familiar?

Justin Trudeau is Cherry’s opposite. An international multiculturalist. Cherry chose Veterans Day – Rememberance Day in Canada – to criticize newer arrived urban Canadians for not sporting poppy pins to honor Canada’s war dead. He says he regrets referring to them as “you people.”

Trudeau would never say “you people,” though he might say “my people.” Playing against type though, photos of him dressed in black face surfaced during the last election. He won anyway.

Maybe there’s a future for Don Cherry here in the states.

Olympic Flameout

Finland sent the Russian Olympic hockey team home today without a medal. Oh wait they are home.

Last night Ukraine went up in flames. So I drew this cartoon. President Obama drew  this red line. Again.

Olympic Flameout Update:

Putin doesn’t make the medal round in Ukraine protests. USA flames out against Canada and then lays an enormous goose egg against Finland 5-0.

Leading from behind fails again.

Sochi Spy Swap

 There will be no Sochi Spy Swap for Edward Snowden.

Senator Mark Warner wants to deport Justin Bieber to Canada. He could go to jail. Pussy Riot has already been there.

Pussy Rioters served Russian prison time for protesting President Putin’s human rights record. That and desecrating a church. In Bieber’s case it would be for assaulting his limo driver. Or for assaulting his jet pilot with second hand pot smoke.

No Sochi Spy Swap but Snowden Welcome

Putin says Edward Snowden is welcome to attend the Sochi Olympics. Pussy Riot, not so much.

I meant to include a shirtless Putin but ran out of room.

TSA

The TSA released new traveler friendly guidelines. Hockey sticks, golf clubs and pocket knives (but not box-cutters) are ok for carry-on. Leave the shampoo at home.
