Maura: Another sporting event that’s very popular in Canada is the Winter Olympics, and that would be because we’re not so bad at them. We have a long winter, we have a lot of places to practice outdoor sports, and so the Winter Olympics are quite popular here.
Harp: Very popular. The Summer Olympics are popular, but we just don’t do very well in them.
Maura: You know, I have another theory as to why the Winter Olympics are more popular.
Harp: Because people are at home and cold and watching TV?
