When Two Nations Collide | Canada Day & Euro 2012

Today is the 145th birthday of one of the best nations in the world – Canada.

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends and followers. Enjoy your BBQ’s, burgers and beers.

To my home and native land – I salute you!

Later this evening Italy takes the stage in the grand final of Euro 2012 against Spain. It’s going to be whopper of a game, a nail-biter, an on-the-edge of your seat, play-by-play game … and I’m going to miss it.

In bocca al lupo Italia! Forza Azzuri. It’s your Cup.

Make this Canadian proud to call you home!

How will you be celebrating these two super festivities today? I’ll be at work …

O Canada, Eh!

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Happy 144th Birthday Canada!

May you shine on, eh.
