Patriotism

Babble on.

I cannot believe most of us maple-leaf-tattooed-over-our-hearts Canadian bloggers completely forgot to take note of a seriously patriotic moment just last week:

A stunned Natalie Glebova of Canada was crowned Miss Universe 2005 on Tuesday, beating out four finalists from Latin America in a pageant watched by an estimated one billion people in 170 countries.

Brown-haired and blue-eyed Glebova, a 23-year-old motivational speaker, was born in Russia but emigrated to Toronto as a young girl, 11 years ago.



Of course, I bring this to your attention because I feel strongly that we should celebrate our triumphs on the world stage, not because she's hot.

What's that? Why yes, I am sticking with that story, thank you very much for asking.

Babble off.

Oh I captured that moment! There is an interesting post at badeagle.com concerning here heritage. Being she is Russian, Yeagley is saying that she should not have won as a Canadian! Unbelievable!

She is HOT and screw Yeagley. I think I said that right. She looks all Canadian to me.

Damian we thank you for undertaking your civic duty to celebrate the international successes of Canadians.

One question though. How can she be hot? She hardly has any clothes on.

Whoa baby, she is smokin' hot!

And yes, I can get away with saying that because I don't have a wife or girlfriend to worry about offending. :)

I find it interesting that she feels she actually has to speak in order to motivate.
