If you do, you sould find a bar that is showing Olympic sports. I am in Guatemala with a bar full of Canucks right now...and one well overmatched American....And three pretty amused Guatemalans who are watching all the screens and asking each other exactly what's going on.


1 Nothing, paisanos

Quite the hockey game eh!

Always looks more exciting on the box, than at the event. I went to see an ice hockey match (and a so called 'football' match as well) in both Canada and the USA. Talk about boring. They stopped for adverts to come up on the screen and only play about five minutes before all going off to sit down. Utterly boring.

Well, I could get all heated about that slight on my national sport, Bob, but I won't

I think the exact same way about soccer. I find the sport ridiculous. And every time one of the sucks takes a dive because someone grazed his leg, I laugh and point and call them pantywaisted ladyboys. I also cringe to watch the whiners plead and cajole the refs with their wide supplicating hands, and moist teary eyes, knowing full well they can't change the decision. It's really quite lame. And undignified. And wimpy. Also whiny, girly, fey and nauseating.

But I would never berate another person's sport in an open forum-- because that would be wrong. But I get where yer comin' from Bob.

Note sure what you are getting at? Perhaps this?

I think the same way about (as you call it) soccer too. Boring-boring-boring-boring. Although it has to be said, in soccer (real name 'Football', I believe), they play more than a few minutes before a sit down and wiped brow. Just saying what I saw and it cost a lot of money too. Oh and while I'm at it, you N. Americans aint gotta clue how to do a hot-dog.... Another fact.
Give me a fast car any day.

Well, having been to Germany, I agree that sausages are better there. You have made sure not include any info about yourself, so I don't know your frame of reference. But if you are of the opinion that America, for instance, makes a better dog, well it just ain't so.

And if you want to try the WORLD'S WORST ATTEMPT AT A HOT DOG...Bar None.

Go to Chile and try a Completo. Somewhere Oscar Mayer shakes his fist at the sky for the travesty that they have unleashed. There will be very few Canadians in far off lands eating one of these pieces of shit.

and, where I come from, the real name IS Soccer.

Avocado on a dog? just does not sound right. Normally, a sound voice on foods, Anthony Bourdain is a fan of it. But the guy often tips a few during his show, and everything tastes great when you've had a couple. I'm still a fan of N.R.

As for Bob and his blanket hot dog statement, he must have been using a fast car, driven by Tracy Chapman, to sample all those hot dogs. All of North America? Surely you exaggerate? Just how many hot dogs have you eaten and where was this? Give me the facts.

Back to the topic, I need to find a leggy brunette Canadian that loves to drink beer and eat hotdogs in a nearby land. Any suggestions.

I am glad you asked me that question, TravelSoup!

A fantastic place for HotDog obsessed, overly gammy, brunette Canadians is Salzburg Austria!

Another interesting place for the aforementioned dark haired, longlegged Canuck sausage afficianados would be the wilds of Oaxaca Mexico, where they do produce a hot dog on every corner in the centre at night. These dogs, however, are not of the high quality that a major sausage taker like Bob would approve of.

Thanks for asking TravelSoup. Y Vaya Con Dios!
