Rules For Being A Canadian Sports Fan: Introduction

Chase RuttigCorrespondent IJune 21, 2010

Canadian Sports Fans are a whole different animal. From our close proximity to the United States, many assume that we adhere to the same set of rules and traditions. They are dead wrong.

Canadians have a weird code of fandom that many don't understand. This is where I come in; this is the beginning of a new column series about the rules of being a Canadian sports fan. This has been created for a variety of reasons:

1) It is summer and eventually I will run out of ideas of interesting things to write.

2) I am Canadian and think this will be funny

3) I am kind of lazy and this requires little research

4) If work on this enough, I may have enough articles for some sort of book

Articles will appear periodically here on Bleacher Report. Check it out and let me know what you think.
