Nickelback ruined Canada’s Olympics

VANCOUVER, BC - FEBRUARY 20:  The Olympic flam...

Oh Canada, you nearly had it all.

You won the gold in hockey. Well done.

And you finished with, by far, the most golds at the Winter Games. Yup, these were good games. Nothing could ruin it, nothing.

Except for Nickelback.

What were you thinking, Canada? You had a positively star-studded line-up for the closing ceremonies. Michael J. Fox was there. So was William Shatner, Catherine O’Hara, and even that girl from the acne treatment commericals.

I’m not saying Nickelback is lamer than Donald Rumsfeld’s standing desk, and that their presence single-handedly makes anything suck, but….you know what, actually yeah, that is what I’m saying.

All the hockey golds in the world, will never erase the fact that you closed this thing out with a Nickelback performance. I’m sorry.

    And I bet you are the guy who started the Pickle/Nickelback thing.If Nickelback sucks so much why do they have a SOLD OUT world tour,and they probably have 20 million more fans then you do.What don’t you go up to Chad Kroeger and say that to his face.He would probably kick your ass not once by 2 or 3 times.That’s why they have the theme song for WWE Raw a billion dollar company.There song is the theme song for The Calgary Flames.

    just because you don’t like nickelback,doesn’t mean that they ruined canada’s olympics.I think their performance was the best.and one more thing,if you really wanna know who ruined the olympics,i’ll tell you: it was avril lavigne who doesn’t even have a singing voice!!

    About Me

    When I was fifteen, my baseball coach condemned me to a stands-bound life. "Graham, you're a pretty good fielder," he said. "But unfortunately it's easier to teach kids how to field than it is to show them how to hit." Stung by this unceremonious end to my baseball career, I trained my crosshairs on his breed. Over time, I have come to realize that he isn't unique, American sports are full of coaches just like him....

    Recently, I have written weekly Yankee columns for the Bronx News Network blog, and articles for the Norwood News, a Bronx newspaper, as well as Sumter, SC's newspaper, The Item. I am currently a Master's candidate at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
