"Am I just wrong that people in Canada tend to have better behavior than that, sports or nothing? "

Yup. Maybe years ago but not anymore. I find people around here, in THE MARITIMES!!!!, are severely lacking in "Canuckiveness". Seriously, it's unreal, unfortunate, unWANTED and I see it on a daily basis. Perhaps you "call" it being "Americanized" and perhaps your terminology is in some way "correct" because it points to a problem which seems to be caused by mass media combined with affluence which is most commonly associated with the US but it sure took me the wrong way when I read your first post.

In other words, I can understand what you said and why you are saying (said) it but your choice of words PERHAPS wasn't quite appropriate... no?
