Dodgers security: You can take your Canadian pride back to Canada, thanks

Going to a game at Dodger Stadium soon? Don't think about bringing your Canadian flag. Not for a motherfucking second.

From the Toronto Star, via Ben Maller and our buddy Larry Brown at The FanHouse:

LOS ANGELES -- Canadian baseball fans have a message for the staff of Dodger Stadium: Don't tread on me.

During Saturday night's contest between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Dodgers, a security guard attempted to confiscate a Canadian flag from a fan. That provoked an angry confrontation with about 100 local expats attending the game.

Yeah, don't fucking tread, man. Sources say that Confederate, North Korean and Cuban flags are all allowed at Dodger Stadium, but, "Canadians provide an immediate threat," said stadium officials.

Said Lee Fraser, the 29-year-old native of Pembroke, Ont. who was hassled:

I've kind of got a sour taste in my mouth."

A girl we met Friday night said the same thing. Zing!

Canadians are an immediate threat??? Look, hillbilly, quit watching the South Park movie and get with the times.

We all know a maple syrup attack is much more dangerous than the Communists from Cuba that you allow in.
