    Yeah I agree with you, but Canadians aren't all saints.....in the last world junior hockey tournament held in Canada (Dec. '05) The American juniors and their national anthem were boo'd.
    I think the Canadian fans are probably a little better behaved and not as drunk.

    Check the film archives! It was actually a 2x3 so he could wield it better...
    My wife would always get pissed because i always said that Hacksaw looked like her ex!

    His big finishing move was getting in the 3-point stance then charging his opponent and then clotheslining him. The charge was always timed of course at the exact moment that the disoriented opponent, who had been facing the other way, turned and faced him.

    You gotta be kidding me. He did run around and twirl it and was always forced by the ref to leave it in the corner or something, but he'd always use it behind the refs back, despite being a babyface.

    Our culture is 100 times different, anyone who watches a UFC or PRIDE event can tell the difference in the respect fans have for the sport. As you pointed out, it's the same in baseball. I used to live in Baltimore, the entire house yells "ORIOLES" or some shit during one part our own national anthem. Stupid example, but you get my point. American fans, half of which at sporting events are drunk as shit simply don't care about respecting other countries. We go from being patriotic to plain out pro-America and anti-anyone else. It's just the way it is, of course I think it's stupid but with our freedom of speech and the way our culture and society is, it's no surprise when fans do dumb shit like that. It's never gonna change, not in our lifetimes.

    Basically, case in point even though it's something I just said above:

    We go from being patriotic to plain out pro-America and anti-anyone else
