      Canada sucks. Especially the people from Montreal. They hate American policies (which may be understandable), but they let that spill over to treating Americans poorly. I found them highly rude when I went there, even though I spoke French. Even though I am an asshole, I went out of my way to be polite as a guest in their country. Never again homies!

      Actually, now that I think about it, the people from Vancouver are really great, so I shouldn't say ALL Canadians suck. Maybe just the people from Montreal. But I love Cathy LeFrancois.
      BIG CALVES MEAN EVERYTHING. . .

                              Yea, there are and the list is growing! If you listened to MD Radio yesterday, it was the most Updated list we had!
                              Relax, only the Top 5 Finalists have a shot at the Top 3 Olympia Spots!
                              If your on this web site, the complete list is posted and we certainly weren't going to run down the Complete list on a "Preview" Video.

                              Puff Puff Pass yo!
