Canada is not an Insider
I thought there was something wrong with my hotel room, but I didn't get a chance to ask the front desk. I happened to mention it at work today when I was met with the dreaded response- "We don't get ESPN".
Canadian: "Yeah, we can't get it at all".
Me: "Regular cable packages don't offer it?"
Canadian: "No, you just can't get it, no matter how much you pay, it's not offered."
Me: "(vomiting on my shoes)"
Me: "How do you live!? (like Hansel in Zoolander when he found out about Melinda's personal life).
Canadian: "Well we get some of their stuff on other channels".
Me: "Like What!?"
Canadian: "Well they'll probably have Monday Night Football and we get PTI sometimes".
Canadian: "No (ashamed)".
Me: "Well what else do you get?"
Canadian: (checking tv schedule) "Stump the Shwab"
Me: (can't wait to go home). No wonder they have less pro athletes than small islands.
