Canada doesn’t want Nickelback to play

This story literally made our week here at UTG! The Winnipeg Jets’ fans are begging the NHL to keep Nickelback from playing the teams first game in over 15 years. In an open letter to the NHL commissioner to kindly reconsider, a pair of critics from the local Winnipeg Free Press wrote a hilarious letter that you can read after the jump!

“As people who love music and love Winnipeg even more, we have a request: Please ensure this does not happen. The return of the NHL to Winnipeg is something we have been dreaming about for 15 years. Please do not sully the celebration with the presence of a band whose existence is antithetical to the very concept of celebration.

Please, Person In Charge Of Booking This Event, do not bring Nickelback to Winnipeg that weekend. They can play the arena to their own fans — of which there are many — any time. But a free public performance? That would be tantamount to spitting on Bobby Hull’s toupee, burning Dale Hawerchuk’s jersey, leaving something wet on Thomas Steen’s city council seat or tripping Teemu Selanne on the ice during his final season in the NHL.”

Just to prove how much people hate Nickelback here’s a video of rocks being thrown at them:
