That famed Canadian politesse suffered a breakdown last night. I for one was shocked, having been taught that Canadians are such nice folk. Perhaps that whole Stephen Colbert ice-hole situation should have tipped me off for such a breach.
The hometown crowd at the men’s ski aerials went berserk after Kyle Nissen failed to score high enough to reach the podium. There was booing and howling, the aura of the crowd went black with anger and disappointment.
Colbert said it best: “Canada is in le dumps.”
Poor Canada, that whole “Own the Podium” is just not working out for you.
