How to speak Canadian: we not they, our not their

Posted on

This is a perennial piss-me-off. Every year  I watch, or listen to, the World Junior Hockey Championships.  And every year I wanna slap every one of the broadcast crew that pretends that it’s not our team out on the ice, that pretends that they are objective, by saying stupid shit like, “Theiy’re gonna have to tighten up in the neutral zone,” instead of saying, “We’re gonna have to tighten up in the neutral zone.”

Get it straight, guys – that’s our team. You can be a homer. There’s nothing wrong with saying we. In fact, it should be mandatory for all of you… err, us.
