winter classic - canadian nation anthem- hockey  0   
So in hockey if there is a canadian team playing an american team they sing both national anthem. otherwise it is only the canadian or american anthems.
So today they sang both before the winter classic even though it is Detriot vs Chicago

WTF- ok so maybe I'm bitter the canadian Jr team better the U.S. Jr team.
respect to Canada

So which anthem do you like better? (extra verses included)

O Canada! Where pines and maples grow,
Great prairies spread and Lordly rivers flow!
How dear to us thy broad domain,
From East to Western sea!
The land of hope for all who toil,
The true North strong and free!

Refrain:
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

O Canada! Beneath thy shining skies,
May Stalwart sons, and gentle maidens rise.
To keep thee steadfast thro' the years,
From East to Western sea.
Our own beloved native land,
Our true North strong and free!

Refrain:
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!


A page from Hymns of the Christian Life, 1962, depicting the original refrain lyrics to O Canada.Ruler supreme, who hearest humble prayer,
Hold our Dominion, in thy loving care.
Help us to find, O God, in thee,
A lasting rich reward.
As waiting for the better day,
We ever stand on guard.

Refrain:
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!


O Canada, glorious and free,
We stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

O! say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: 'In God is our trust.'
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave
Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Worship Worship

arrhh its allways the most boring part of any sporting event lol, national anthems are over used in my opinion and they are 99% of the time only used in sporting events (and schools) and with the olympics does anyone really watch the medal ceromonie? its more boring than a commercial lol

Its an insult to compare the American Anthem to the Canadian one.... as it is to call a Canadian an American. This is a stupid post.

And it would be an insult to call you a mexican.
but that is not what I was trying to do.

I was just trying to see who had more national pride

canadians
or
americans

with a "fun' outlet for other nationalities to insult both

but I guess that is stupid . . .

but you still got your points for voting and took time to let everyone know that you thought this was stupid

Thanks,
A stupid american aka Frisellan
