And, no, not because, at the moment, it appears to be far more sane than that crazy Uncle Sam who lives to the south. As if that's a particularly unusual state of affairs.
No, Canada is great because, after an idiot Blue Jays fan threw a half-full can of beer onto the field during Tuesday night's American League wild-card game, narrowly missing Baltimore outfielder Hyun Soo Kim, the Blue Jays took it upon themselves to apologize to both the Orioles and Major League Baseball. Even though the Blue Jays had nothing to do with the actions of said idiot fan.
"On the heels of one of the most competitive and exhilarating baseball games in our club's history, it is extremely unfortunate that the irresponsible actions of one individual would detract from the game on the field and tarnish an otherwise memorable night," the team said in a statement.
So that's what civilized behavior sounds like.
