As much as I make fun of Canada, I really am quite fond of America’s hat. Those crazy Canucks gave us Kids in the Hall, and that’s probably my all-time favorite TV show, so I can’t really bash those hosers for that. But it’s just so hard to continue my appreciation of those moose-loving maniacs when they have people like Melissa Tancredi giving Ndamukong Suh a run for his money in the d*ckhead department.
To be fair, Team Canada had quite a few poor sports after Team USA pulled off a miraculous 4-3 victory in the semifinals on Monday. Christine Sinclair accused the refs of giving the victory to the U.S. before the match even started. Canada’s coach, John “Flappy” Herdman, called on Team USA to just admit that they were fortunate for being favored. But regardless of whether or not the refs were in Uncle Sam’s pockets, Tancredi really went the extra kilometer to come off as a total C-word.
Tancredi received a yellow card in the match, after committing at least 7 fouls, and despite that she still blamed the refs and not her team’s cheap tactics for the loss.
When asked what she said to Pederson after the call [that led to the penalty], she said: “I hope you can sleep tonight and put on your American jersey because that’s who you played for today. I was honest.”
Oh, and to wrap her piss poor day up and throw a big, ol’ bow on it, Tancredi stomped on Carli Lloyd’s head, as you can see in the video after the jump. And you can bet your maple leafed ass if it was Alex Morgan, I’d be knocking on Canada’s door with a Challenger 2 tank right now.
