Yo Canada

O Canada! Our home and native land! True something something something command...

Source: These are the words to the Canadian national anthem as I know them. Yes, you may be as shocked as I was to learn that the home of Bryan Adams is actually it's own country, but it's true.

Explanation: My house has a gimmicky doorbell. It has 25 different musical options, none of which are described using the word "doorbell." Approximately ten of those options are Christmas-related. Then there are the other fun options like Hava Nagila and Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Being the musical genius that I am, we were in the house for about two years before I realized that O Tannenbaum was actually a seasonal ring and that I could change it.

Anyway, my cousins came to visit yesterday and my cousin Phil was tinkering with the doorbell. Now it plays O Canada, which I think might be perplexing to our future visitors. I also think the odds are pretty high that it'll still be our "ring tone" the next time he comes to visit. Fun stuff!

In NCAA Tournament Pool Action, Because I Know You Care: I have 14 of the Sweet 16 and have only lost one Elite Eight team (Thanks, Marquette). In many years, this would be an amazing feat, but this year it didn't get me very far. I'm currently in 60th place out of 151 entries. As usual, I am actually doing worse than I would have if I had chosen only the higher seeds.

See? It's hurt you again. If you watched more hockey, you would know the words to the Canadian National Anthem, and it wouldn't be so confusing to you.

For the record, the next line is "True patriot love in all thy sons command."
