The "extreme sport" thing was just a retarded comment from the person who put up the link.

That put aside, it`s weird to laugh at Canada about curling considering it`s not at all a national sport here. People laugh about other countries all the time, everyone does it. I can deal with that. But if you want to laugh at me, laugh at something I actually do. If you want to laugh at us, laugh about hockey, or laugh at lacrosse, our two national sports. Laugh at me and my poutine, or laugh at my French accent. But stop laughing at things that don`t even concern us, such as "eh" (never heard that in my life) and curling, which isn`t played more here than it is in the US, from what I can gather from the comments so far.

I know no other place than IAB for stereotypes.

If I hear one more "eh" joke, I`m gonna f*cking snap! I don`t consider Curling an extreme sport. I don`t even consider it a sport! It`s like golf or poker! They`re pass times, not sports! And we invented hockey and basketball! The Europeans? They invented cricket, a game nobody but them f*cking understands! And the Americans? They took Cricket, made it more understandable, gave the batter a round bat, and called it baseball! Another excuse for them to drink beer and eat fatty hot dogs! Yippee, like u needed it!(I actually like baseball, I`m just really pissed off)Oh and tundralost, u forgot Jim Carrey, but nice list! Thank u for bringing that up!

Jesus christ people, we don`t have funny accents, and we don`t say "eh" all the time. Sandra Oh, Ryan Gosling, Carly Pope, Evangeline Lilly, Rachel McAdams, Neve Campbell, Sarah Polley, Carrie-Anne Moss, Will Arnett, Micheal Cera, Matthew Perry, Micheal J. Fox, etc etc are all Canadian but wrongly assumed to be American. Ther`s more canucks in Hollywood than Brits or Aussies, but no one knows because we sound the same as Americans.

Have a good look at the British.

BTW, very few of our population likes curling, like 15 percent, tops? Hockey`s where it is at.

Curling is actually a fun passtime if not a sport to play. For everybody who assumes poo about Canada try thinking past the boat. Most Americans don`t care about other cultures enough to know where their families originated from. Try learning about us before speaking out of your asses.

Hmm. I would hate doing that in gym. I`d rather do something too difficult than something that stupid.

Is it really that suprising that this is just another stereotype given to Canada?

It is played in parts of Europe and the US as well, even if it isn`t as widely popular. That isn`t to say it is widely popular here either, because it is definitely not, depending on your province.

It is very annoying to see a lie being told to people who don`t have the immediate knowledge to know the difference.

Why are we comparing it to an extreme sport? No where in the video does it say or mention that.

Curling is like Bocce on ice!

Seems like women really are better at it. The womens Swedish Curling team won the gold.

Curling is by no means an extreme sport. It`s really more of a passtime. My grandfather used to play on a curling team. He did that for about 10 years. I mildly enjoy watching it, but I much prefer hockey.

Theres a bleedin BABY face all scary at the last moment of the clip!! FRIGHTENING. Moreso than the scrub-and-broom "extreme" sport.

Fun fact: In Kirby`s Adventures, one of the many things he was able to transform into was a curling ball.

Alright, why do you assume poo about Canada. Where i live there is no curling center and I hate curling. Our Extreme sport is hockey but Americains stole it from us. And you guys consider poker a sport! which requires no physical activity whatsoever

Mostly the people who play this in canada are old and looking for a passtime, its definitly not an extreme sport. Fun fact: The scottish invented curling.

I absolutely love curling. This was the only sport I watched in the last winter olympics. I`m not even kidding.
It`s probably my third favorite sport, behind Soccer and poker.

Obviously posted to poke fun of the sport and Canadians.

I however, choose not to be derogatory towards my northern neighbors.

And I can barely tell the difference between Canadian and American accents. They sound practically the same. A bit like Aussies and New Zealanders.
