National pride… ?

Canada’s national hockey team just barely avoided what would have been a shocking loss to Team France in an exhibition game last weekend.

“Despite France’s image as a haven for snooty sophisticates, their fans are far louder and more enthusiastic than their analytical Canadian counterparts, waving flags, banging drums and chanting “Allez les bleus!” at every opportunity,” reports the Vancouver Sun.

We at the Carnet Atlantique did not see that coming.
