A few weeks back, Texas Matt, a good friend of mine and Pants, send us an email informing us of a little bar he discovered in the city of Athens, Georgia (the home of the University of Georgia) known as THE MAX CANADA. And anyone who knows us, knows how much Pants and I love our great neighbor to the North. We are totally Fauxnadians.
So last weekend, when I went down to GA to visit Texas Matt, I insisted he take me to this bar. In my head, I envisioned a place packed with Canadian ex-pats, wearing Roots gear and lumberjack outfits and drinking Molson or Labatt’s Blue while hockey games played on every single television. During the commercial breaks, the entire crowd would break into song, singing the Canadian national anthem or the entire Barenaked Ladies catalog. My own little version of heaven. Sort of like this…
What I got, however, left me seriously disappointed. Not only where there NO Canadians there, there was no Canadian flags, no hockey jerseys, and not a single one of the TVs showing any of the hockey games!
Uh, guys – your bar is called The Max CANADA and you don’t even show ONE hockey game? Seriously? Epic epic FAIL.
I know you are located in Athens, Georgia, where UGA football is basically a religion and this guy is the preacher…
But if you’re going invoke our great neighbor to the North in your establishment’s name, the least you could do is incorporate SOME of the awesome things we love aboot Canada.
Maybe a Tim Horton’s coffee machine?
