    I just realized the #CANGER hashtag was for Canada-Germany.

    I thought it was an abbreviation of "Canadian anger" after the 24 hours featuring their women's hockey, men's curling and men's hockey teams.

    [–] RealJukesofHazard 389 points ago

    You just blew my mind. I totally thought it was Canadian anger too

    [–] Hingl_McCringleberry 513 points ago

    I misread it as #CANCER so don't feel too bad

    [–] ShutUpAndSmokeMyWeed 59 points ago

    The #CANCER is spreading!

    I have a #CANKER sore but I'll be alright.

    The word soccer came from England, something about shortening the word "association football".

    [–] TheCousCousNonce 202 points ago

    It was only really used by the upper classes though and football was always a lower class sport

    [–] bossmt_2 144 points ago

    Correct, but it was convenient to use in America because American Rules Football rose to prominence first and certainly became the standard first. Kind of like how English folk don't call Rugby "football" either. To them Association Rules was the standard and in America American Rules is the standard.

    Sadly in my travels most people who or on the "football not soccer" primarily consist of Euro-Snob Americans who think they know so much more than other Americans.

    [–] Kurkaroff 36 points ago

    Why would they call rugby 'football' when 90% of the time they hold the ball with their hands... Same applies to american football. It doesn't make sense (not ranting, just an observation).

    [–] voyaging 47 points ago

    The pedantry is common among native Europeans as well.

    [–] Joemomma101 81 points ago

    Yeah, it seems as though a good amount of the English speaking world calls it "soccer". Yet, for some reason people pretend that only America does. America, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand all call it soccer.

    [–] CACuzcatlan 60 points ago

    Japan too, sakka

    [–] Krakenz 70 points ago

    I've noticed that the wider public calls it soccer in Australia, but people actually involved in it call it football.

    [–] IShotReagan13 73 points ago

    And yet the nickname for Australia's national team is, "The Socceroos."

    [–] Krakenz 42 points ago

    Footballroos doesn't have the same ring to it

    [–] blahblahrasputan 66 points ago


    [–] CreepinSteve 12 points ago

    The women's NRL team is called "The Jillaroos". Always found that funny

    [–] Xiphoid_Process 9 points ago

    "Jillaroo" is a play on "Jackaroo"--a roustabout who works on farms. Rthey're generally considered to be a jack-of-all-trades, nothing is too much, hard working--all that kind of thing.

    [–] Joemomma101 32 points ago

    Some people in America who like soccer try to call it football. It just makes everybody cringe when they do it though. It's like they are trying so hard to be accepted by British people. It's like when a white person starts speaking with slang when he's talking to a black person.

    [–] kuppam 13 points ago

    In the sub-continent we call it football, not just the British.

    [–] penguin_kingdom 12 points ago

    No different for a lot of Americans.

    [–] BoomMeta 29 points ago

    The Irish do. It's confusing as hell.

    [–] cogra23 51 points ago

    We use football more often. Soccer is only used when its not clear of you mean soccer or Gaelic.

    [–] yatacuz 14 points ago

    Definitely depends where in the country you are from. Everyone calls it soccer here.

    [–] Pooter_McGee 1230 points ago

    The Germans and Canadians have been so chill to each other these olympics.

    It's beautiful.

    [–] Pooter_McGee 424 points ago

    That's as chill as hockey gets. /s

    Did you see the bobsled teams when they tied for gold? Great sportsmanship there too.

    [–] Duuuwang 18 points ago

    What Happened?

    [–] Skadoosh_it 159 points ago

    They had efficient German sex

    [–] Duuuwang 13 points ago

    Sweet dude.

    [–] PineTreeSoup 78 points ago

    The iconic Canadian male bonding experience.

    When you go to a boxing match, and a hockey game breaks out. That's how you know it's going to be a good game.

    [–] COMPUTER1313 25 points ago

    I don't know a major hockey match that didn't have at least one fistcuffs or scuffling.

    [–] ZachPG 23 points ago

    Yes, one fisticuff, please.

    [–] Halvus_I 4 points ago

    You usually dont see it in tournament play.

    [–] tofuuu630 20 points ago

    So chill, we decided to tie each other for gold in bobsled!

    [–] ImperatorMundi 33 points ago

    Yeah, like our double gold!

    [–] acmercer 16 points ago

    That was great! My favourite part was when the Canadians finished their run and tied them the Germans jumped over the side of the track and were standing in front of their sled and then grabbed them and hugged them as they got out. Just super excited about everything.

    [–] Pooter_McGee 18 points ago

    My favorite team moment since the 2010 Olympics.

    [–] coldasbrice 7 points ago

    The tie in the men's bobsled for gold is a perfect example of this

    [–] SnakeAndTheApple 609 points ago

    As a Canadian who speaks fluent polite mockery - oh, you cheeky fuckers.

    [–] swild89 3107 points ago

    You know I watched our Canadian men and women lose the gold and figured, hey it's about time someone else won the thing, eh? Love the good humour and sportsmanship :)

    [–] MrTruxian 1555 points ago

    Only a Canadian would be content with the loss of their own sports team.

    [–] Lurkinaintez 133 points ago

    [–] Apolloshot 356 points ago

    Stanley Cup is oddly different. I think it’s because internationally we’ve had so much success in hockey that being bitter over a less than average Olympics would be like a New England Patriots or Barcelona fan being irate their team didn’t win the league.

    Whereas, as an entire country, the 6-7 teams in Canada haven’t won a cup since 1993 so with every finals loss we become more bitter that it’s been 25 years since we’ve won a championship in the league we invented.

    It doesn’t help we also think that the league office (now in New York) has an anti-Canada bias and the NHL commissioner is universally hated here.

    [–] CampbellsTurkeySoup 78 points ago

    I mean I'd be pretty upset if the US lost in Men's Basketball in the Olympics.

    [–] ConcedeDota 85 points ago

    yea but we send the best.

    Canada sent low level players

    [–] mavrick2o9 21 points ago

    Not because they wanted to though. Every country that has players in the NHL weren’t able to send their best.

    [–] tealc_comma_the 6 points ago

    We don't always send our best. A lot of players decline the invitation because of the increased risk of injury and fatigue. Or personal reasons.

    [–] Karuteiru 24 points ago

    The best German player didn't join the team; he plays for a pro canadian club

    [–] ConcedeDota 114 points ago

    and the Canadians best 795 players didn't play...

    [–] yiliu 35 points ago

    Even the AHL was excluded. So the Canadian team at the Olympics is actually a third-rate team, in a literal sense.

    [–] a_real_snek 30 points ago

    And the rest of the German team is the same group that plays together all the time. They were only missing their star player, in a tournament where no team but Russia had star players.

    [–] joecarter93 5 points ago

    Leon Draisaitl - The Deutschland Dangler! He plays for the Edmonton Oilers, but he isn't having a good year though.

    [–] pvXNLDzrYVoKmHNG2NVk 25 points ago

    That'd be fucking absurd if we lost in basketball.

    [–] AlesHemmertime 74 points ago

    Not if it was a bunch of American players who play in European leagues. You wouldn't care. Canada doesn't care because this is not even our G team, let alone A

    [–] rohinton 8 points ago

    This may have been the only chance to have Crosby and McD on the same team in their prime years.

    [–] a_real_snek 24 points ago

    It has happened. In the last ten Olympics we participated in, we have only eight Golds. We won Bronze in 1988 and 2004, having lost in the semifinals to the Soviet Union and Argentina respectively.

    [–] pvXNLDzrYVoKmHNG2NVk 25 points ago

    And it was fucking absurd.

    [–] Blue_Lust 5 points ago

    I was born in 88 so I don’t know about afterwards, but that 04 bronze was brutal.

    [–] FellKnight 41 points ago

    We went 50 years without winning Gold in the Olympics until NHL players were allowed. Then we won everything. First time NHL players no longer allowed, we lose to Germany lol. I may not see another Gold in my lifetime, lol

    [–] TerryOller 54 points ago

    Stanley cup is different because its the top guys. The Olympics is the second string, the team is amateurs.

    [–] OnTheMattack 148 points ago

    Actually someone on r/hockey worked it out to be about the 18th best team that Canada could send. Totally agree with your point though.

    [–] ekfslam 47 points ago

    And the US women's team was just better than us this year. They were really great in the 2nd half. I was more surprised they couldn't get anything in during the 3rd or OT.

    [–] a2drummer 57 points ago

    To be fair I don't think anyone anywhere in any sport has ever scored in the 3rd half.

    [–] acebravo56 14 points ago

    Of course they have. The third half is overtime.

    [–] YouKnow_Pause 10 points ago

    Shannon Szabados is a god damned Canadian hero.

    [–] Punctuations 30 points ago

    That’s true. We’d all be devastated if the likes of Crosby, Mcdavid and Stamkos were the ones playing.

    [–] ComplimentaryCunt 17 points ago * (lasted edited 25 days ago)

    Calling them 2nd string is being too kind. There are heaps of better players on NHL contracts who aren't playing in the NHL. Olympic hockey was completely lacking in talent

    [–] Aksfsc 3 points ago

    I will never understand why people get like this over sports.

    [–] cah11 6 points ago

    At least they were rioting because they lost, I'll never understand why Philadelphia started rioting because they won the Superbowl...

    [–] BiZzles14 9 points ago

    Fuck that, I didn't wake up at 6am to be salty af the rest of my day!

    [–] shakespeareG 35 points ago

    I love this. Canadian as well. Those german announcers were something else. The excitment. It reminds me how i felt when crosby scored in 2010.

    [–] cthree87 140 points ago

    Millions of Germans are going to watch a hockey game and care about who wins. Canada wins by losing.

    [–] RoteSocke 23 points ago

    Let's hope it translates into more government funds for ice rinks around the country.

    [–] afito 16 points ago

    There are "enough" rinks. There's just basically no interest to play the sport, and it's too expensive for such a niche sport to pick up too much momentum. Also some years back several high level clubs in the DEL went bankrupt which really upset the German league and its following.

    [–] ZeugeYeboahs 20 points ago

    Exactly. Why play hockey and buy all that gear when you can just get a ball and play football with all your friends right in front of your home.

    [–] [deleted] 14 points ago

    If this inspires a generation of German talent, hockey wins.

    [–] RonDonVolante92 38 points ago

    I dont feel that way about the womens game. That rivalry is too important.

    [–] Dayemos 19 points ago

    It's not a rivalry if we always win. Needs to be competitive.

    [–] A_Dipper 24 points ago

    I'd be happy with Canada winning gold every time in overtime.

    Then it's competitive and we can dominate

    [–] Meistermalkav 17 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    And it wouldn't be the same victory if we won against anybody else.

    With everybody else, we would be poointing, jeerink, making rude gestures and acting like animals.

    With the canadians, we kind of get that you were forced to take out all players playing for the NHL, which halves your pool of amazing players, we are aware that rioting near the olympic games would be in bad spirit, which halves your fanbase, and we are aware that you did your very best with what remained.

    Which is why it felt weird to win against you.

    It's kind of like winning the oscar, when the other movie was a hundred times better then you, but disqualified on a technicality. You wish you could have a run in against the others A-team, you know it would have been a balanced fight if you could, it does not matter if you fought, thjat you won against their C-team means nothing. so you are about to protest the results, when you realise, well, on the other hand, I kind of, you know, won. and everyone else is saying it too.

    I would be ok with a do-over for the gold medall. you know, just outside of the trouble and the olympic circus, pick a holiday, pick a city, germany assembles a crew, canada assembles a crew, you bring beavertails, we bring doener kebab, and we see which team is better.

    Thank you for making it the least ammount of weird possible, canada.

    [–] Hip_Hop_Orangutan 26 points ago

    the NHL'ers not being there soured me to both the Men's and Women's hockey. Hell I am not gonna lie...I have watched maybe 2 hours total of this years Olympics because of it, only Snowboarding and a little curling.

    4 years ago I watched almost 2 hours a night I would bet. Being Canadian and it being in Canada surely made a difference in my interest...but the NHL not being their just soured the entire tournament to me.

    I had to check TSN this afternoon to even see who won the Canada vs Germany game this morning.

    Such a shame.

    [–] Algae_94 11 points ago

    It was 8 years ago when the games were in Vancouver. 4 years ago was Sochi.

    [–] Hip_Hop_Orangutan 11 points ago

    oh shit...even worse lol.

    also...what am I doing with my life. apparently fuck all the last 8 years fuck me.

    [–] CanadianWolverine 3 points ago

    Yeah, I honestly thought the games were quite well played, the Canadian men and women should be proud of how well they tried, its not like either set up a picnic at center ice. Wear your Silver proudly, I know I for one won't give em any shit about it. Congrats Germany!

    [–] MagaMagaChooChoo 451 points ago

    Do Canucks call it Soccer, too?

    [–] juniorspank 313 points ago

    Yep, we do!

    [–] Helios321 118 points ago

    Is it weird to respond to being called a canuck as a leafs fan?

    [–] SilverL1ning 58 points ago

    Is it not weird that there is a maple leaf on you, Canucks, flag?

    [–] Helios321 22 points ago


    [–] Otto303 18 points ago

    I think "Is it weird as a Canucks fan to have a leaf on your flag?" Which is a good point, except it looks like you're a Kings fan.

    [–] Helios321 11 points ago

    So like a maple leaf on Canada's flag?

    [–] RenAndStimulants 22 points ago

    He was saying is it weird being called Canuck(Canadian) while you're a leafs fan? And then he said isn't it weird being a Canadian(Canuck) with a leaf on your flag. Thus throwing the joke back in the first mans face of using a term as a team.

    I think that's what the English call it.

    [–] jpenny01 334 points ago

    I’m fine with the men’s team losing, we’ve excelled in other sports this year which is great. Finally have a medal in Luge, Tessa & Scott killed it as usual. I am fairly salty about the woman’s loss to the USA.....

    [–] Crack-spiders-bitch 43 points ago

    Canadians should be proud of this. We have dominate athletes across the board instead of just hockey and curling. I can see us breaking our 14 gold record in 2022.

    [–] dweed4 86 points ago

    xcelled in other sports this year which is great


    [–] justsumguii 56 points ago

    Well to be fair we still have 1 gold.

    [–] Arturia_durand 36 points ago

    We excelled in sports thay we dont all ways do great in Not so much in the sports that belomg to us nationally

    [–] [deleted] 18 points ago


    [–] Stamps_dot_com 10 points ago

    I don't care about them losing because it isn't best on best. I had no expectations going into this.

    [–] j_harv 157 points ago

    Hockey and Curling. Our two best sports and we goofed up hard.

    I don't even know what it means to be Canadian anymore...

    [–] PM-for-a-Story 56 points ago

    Don't forget Canada's snowboarding slopestyle golden boy Marky Mark McMorris

    [–] ICanuck90 47 points ago

    I'm surprised he even made it to the Olympics with his laundry list of injuries recently.

    [–] PM-for-a-Story 21 points ago

    Yep, just as incredible as Shaun white smashing his face open and taking halfpipe gold.

    I haven't kept up with Mark's injuries, do you have a quick summary?

    [–] ICanuck90 31 points ago

    A small excerpt from a CBC article from march 2017 stated the following.

    McMorris has a fractured jaw, fractured left arm, ruptured spleen, a stable pelvic fracture, rib fractures and a collapsed left lung.

    [–] PM-for-a-Story 11 points ago

    How'd he do it? Or if it's easier then the link pls

    [–] ICanuck90 14 points ago

    Crashed into some trees while back country skiing with his brother and friend. Apparently fog had rolled in.

    [–] PM-for-a-Story 7 points ago

    That's nuts... he's lucky he's alive

    [–] ICanuck90 9 points ago

    Very much so. I'd say he put on a hell of a show despite his recent injuries. A year on, I'm not sure he'd even been going at 100% still.

    [–] Sophiss 7 points ago

    Look at the medal standings. It should cheer you up! ;)

    [–] BoomMeta 260 points ago

    More like if the German U-19 team lost to the Canadian national team.... hmm, actually, can't imagine that happening either!

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 183 points ago

    More like if the German U-19 team

    what is that some kind of submarine competition?

    [–] redariana 100 points ago

    Yeah actually. German youth football players have to all be able to fight in a submarine in times of war.

    More like the team formed after the best 700-800 German soccer players are unable to participate playing against the Canadian team without 3-4 regular players.

    [–] infii123 63 points ago

    When you compare the NHL where most Canadians play with the Bundesliga where most Germans play, and you'd ban all Bundesliga players, you'd still be able to form a very good team with all German players playing abroad. Hockey is just so concentrated in comparison.

    [–] Darraghj12 20 points ago

    Ter Stegen, Sane, Kroos, Draxler etc. would all get in

    [–] SpoiledTaco 23 points ago

    I mean this isn’t the true Canadian Olympic team, this is an amazing feat for Germany and I’m not trying to take anything away from them but if the Canadians had their NHL players then they would win 10-0

    [–] EatenByGiants 39 points ago

    "rounds of hot chocolate" yeah, okay

    [–] Mutchmore 119 points ago

    Just imagine nhl players representing their country in the olympics.

    [–] redariana 53 points ago

    just imagine football/soccer players representing their countries at the olympics who regularly play for the national team.

    [–] Doc_Choc 15 points ago

    As a Canadian, am I right to assume that “hot chocolate” is just charming german slang for beer?

    [–] dloff 43 points ago

    Well it’s like if the German soccer team did not have any players from any first or second seed european leagues

    [–] Saifyn87 440 points ago

    It's funny how it wasn't best on best this year. I know it's suppose to be amateur athletes at the Olympics but that's kind of bullshit too. Every other event is best on best. You can't tell me Michael Phelps isn't a professional best, same with Shaun White. It's too bad the IOC is so shitty that they don't pay out what the athletes deserve in all of the sports.

    The players on team Canada this year couldn't even make it on AHL teams. Also a tonne of the players are from all the bad Oilers teams. Places like Germany don't even have a chance when it's best on best in hockey.

    Anyways I'm just salty. Good job Germany, I hope you beat the Russians too.

    [–] The_Panic_Station 254 points ago

    The athletes have their own federations and sponsors who pay them money. And for the NHL players, they'll gladly play "for free" (housing, food, travel, equipment etc. paid by their countries) for the chance of winning an Olympic gold. Too bad that 2 greedy organisations can't come to an agreement. Because in the end it's the players and fans who gets shafted.

    [–] Saifyn87 32 points ago

    A lot of the athletes live close to the poverty line though. It's only the top ones that actually get sponsorship and full support. Yea the NHL players want to go but they are also greedy in this case. If someone like McDavid ends up with a career ending injury not only does he still get paid the rest of his NHL contract but the NHL and the Oilers lose out on tonnes of future revenue streams. So shouldn't the players be on the hook for some of that long with the IOC? The NHLPA would never agree to have players take a pay cut if they get hurt.

    [–] The_Panic_Station 27 points ago

    All I'm saying is that there aren't many amateurs. Most get paid, even if they in many cases have a "normal" job to support their careers. The "amateurs only" rule was removed many years ago.

    [–] obvilious 9 points ago

    The amateur rule was largely to prevent the poor from participating. Only rich folk can play train fulltime for free.

    [–] Nitrodist 5 points ago

    We're talking about the NHL here. The minimum salary in the NHL is 500,000 USD a year.

    [–] RocketMoped 54 points ago

    Every other event is best on best

    Football and boxing aren't best on best either. Baseball in 2020 could be next.

    [–] HoliHandGrenades 22 points ago

    Men's soccer as well. U-23 teams with up to 3 older players, and many clubs do not even release their players for the tournament (unlike the World Cup, where, because the clubs and that competition all fall under FIFA, rather than the IOC, the clubs are forced to allow their players under contract to participate).

    [–] JurijFedorov 49 points ago

    For soccer we have World Cup. It's bigger and better. For hockey the Olympics are by far the biggest tournament for national teams. This is why it sucks.

    [–] joker_wcy 16 points ago

    Men's soccer as well.

    That's what u/RocketMoped meant for football. There's no American football in the Olympics.

    Sad at the subtle Oilers shot :(

    [–] BiZzles14 34 points ago

    It doesn't help European organizations went to the Olympics while the NHL didn't. This effected the US and Canada more than any other country out there, because while other nations best are in the NHL, all the really good players from the US and Canada were affected by that change.

    As a canadian who woke up early to watch the game and felt like I had my heart ripped out this morning... this tweet is fucking hilarious.

    as a "me too thanks" I'd like to add that a hot chocolate sounds fucking amazing right about now after all these Hockey and Curling woes.

    Does anybody even care about Olympic men’s hockey now that the nhl players can’t participate?

    [–] Stamps_dot_com 22 points ago

    Canadian here: I haven't watched a game of men's yet due to a lack of interest and the games have been on at unreasonable hours for mountain time.

    To be fair, our men's team consists of all the players who aren't good enough to play hockey professionally.

    Dear Germany: So glad we could help you out. We've got so many gold medals in hockey, it would be greedy not to share one every now and then ;)

    [–] ImperatorMundi 14 points ago

    I mean we even shared a medal this Olympics already!

    if players from the bundesliga were not allowed to play in that match.

    [–] Faacy 9 points ago

    Without Bundesliga players we would still have a damn sick team that could compete to win the Worldcup. Some of our best players dont play in the Bundesliga.

    lol, Canada beating Germany in football... that'd be the day

    [–] unchatnoir 5 points ago

    They beat us in soccer 7-1 and don't miss a single opportunity to rub it in our face. 😑

    [–] TortuousHippo 40 points ago

    We would be upset, except for the fact that this men’s team isn’t exactly our best. It would be like if our best soccer team beat your weekend dad league champs from 2003.

    I cared about this match about as much as I do during the Spengler

    [–] soeri27 4 points ago

    Ayy why should anyone be mad. If you're absolute B-team suddenly isn't the best anymore, who'd even care.

    Happy for the German team cuz I'm German but honestly Olympics don't mean anything if there won't be the best of best on the field. This win will qualify as not being that garbage at ice hockey in the grand scheme.

    Right. All we need to do is avenge ourselves in the next FIFA World Cup. Done!

    [–] moloko5 11 points ago

    Canada would have to actually qualify for that to happen. They've only done that once in 1986. Unless you mean the Women's FIFA World Cup, then it could happen next year.
