    As much as I'd like to take writing credit, it's not my song. It's the theme song from the movie Team America: World Police. You can even hear a sample clip thanks to the good people at Amazon.com - http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/clipserve/B00031TXTU001003/0/103-5365500-2375834

    My dearest and only friends,

    Measuring a fish means the witness would have to paddle over to verify the length. This would take time and might result in injury to the fish. No, my vote is that anything counts. This contest should not be at the expense of the fish. Fairness is called for and remember that only gentlemen and gentlewomen will be involved. Cheating is unthinkable and will not be condoned.

    My dream team:

    Chris (He's the owner for god's sakes-show some respect).
    Ive (I've watched him fish and he is good to say the very least).
    Roper (He crapped on me but I prefer to keep to the high road).
    Steve Buckner (Best guide I've ever had).
    Me (Well, I mean, I did think this thing up, eh?)

    Subs: Pwoens :rofl:

    Les Johnson
    World Angler if he's around.
    CWUGirl
    YT
    And heck, lots of guys we've got that I just can't think of at the moment.

    Dudes, and other peeps, listen up:

    I'll take on anybody, anywhere. For fishing or whatever else you monkeys can dream up. Any nation too, why limit this to canadians? how about YT vs. China? Or Iceland? thats Race-nationism!

    Seriously, any lake, anywhere. period. Get it together, I'll show up and put a whuppin on all ya'll.

    YT, thanks Bob for the mention, but I'll destroy your dream team. :eek:

    My dearest and only true friends,

    Be careful Ive--you might get replaced on my dream team with YT. I mean, I like confidence, that, "I'll kick 'em in the balls attitude." YT is famous for this. You just know that he'll make thousands of casts, go through hundreds of flies and the poor Canadian that is assigned to him will come in with tears in his eyes.

    Bob, the Impressed by YT's bravado. ;)

    Bob,I'm humbled to be named as an alternate. But to get there I would have to drive over a couple of high bridges and I can't do that with my eyes closed. And as for Yt being a fishing fool,I think that he is only dreaming and wishing to himself that he wish's that he was. So Ive I think you are safe.

    As a rule I'm not one for tournaments. The tension tends to flatten my Canadian beer, and give me small bouts of indigestion. :clown:
    What, would this little get together result in for our 2 fine countries should one or the other win? Would international relations remain the same on both sides after one or the other emerged victorious? :rofl:
    I will have to think on a team that is worthy of such an offer. I am not sure I should be the captain of the Canadian side, my leadership qualities tend to have my charges running the other way. :(

    Some additional suggested rules?

    No guns in competition boats. :eek:

    The word "huh" will not be used as "eh"

    No poking fun at Canadian money notes. We know it's weird looking.

    We won't wear mucklucks, you don't wear flack jackets.

    To denote team alligence, the Canadians will say 'about' at least once per half hour and the Americans will not. :D

    Where do you propose to hold this little party? Sounds like a bit of fun for sure, eh?

    Bob, my dearest friend, I see I've hurt your feelings and for that I'm eternally sorry. I assumed that there would be playoffs to advance to the top position in these new CanAm Games. I never dreamed I'd be in the front running or that you wouldn't spearhead your own team.

    Besides, you and YT are gonna kick some Canuck ass all by yourselves, right?

    My dear and only friend Floon,

    As self-appointed Grand Marshall of the event, allow me to respond to your requests.

    1. Guns. I don't know if we can do this. I mean, we are Americans and Americans are always armed the teeth. Will you promise to respect us when we are thus naked? I mean, without our guns.

    2. Each eh will be recorded as well as our huhs. The result will be tallied and used as a tie breaker should one occur.

    3. OK on the laughs about your money, but bring greenbacks; we don't take funny money.

    4. Definitely no on the mucklucks. The flack jackets? Hmmmm.

    5. When you holler out "abooot"; we'll holler "Y'all."

    6. The Venue is to be decided but I suggest Lake Lenice for the first annual. Now, if you have a secret Canadain lake that is full of fish--we could start up your way if you can guarantee our safety when crossing through your border Nazis. Something in writing from your Pope or whoever it is that runs you guys.

    Bob, the Notice how impeccably fair I have been. Just trying to maintain our world image. :cool:

    My dear Roper,

    I know you are good at heart and would never knowingly offend anyone.

    I might not be on the team itself unless the public is very insistent that I represent them. I mean, our national honor is at stake here and I tremble at the awesome responsibility that imposes. Yet, a properly tembling hand could be just the winning ticket for our spooky trout.

    I hadn't even thought about playoffs. Maybe a poll? But what if someone gets no votes? They may quit fishing over it. Lots of problems here.

    Bob, the I have jumped up on the water wagon with you, Rope. Been about a week now. No AA. Just realizing that I am too old to be carrying on without regard to what little health I have left. :cool:

    Bob if your going to send a contingency of U S of A fishers to Canada they better have impeccable credentials. Two my fishing friends tie to get across the border a year ago and they told one of them he had to post a $500.00 cash bond because he had a DUI TWENTY years ago in the states. (TRUE STORY)
    That may limit your team a little. :rofl:

    Were they afraid he'd stay in Canada after trying our beer? :rofl:
    As for the captain of the team, I accept, but only if the losing team captain isn't drawn and quartered like they did in that old Tarzan movie where they tie you to 2 palm trees bent to an X. They tied you to them and then cut the tension ropes and then a new meaning to "lift and separate" was realised. :eek:
    If we were all fishing in separate crafts, then would we be allowed to fish 2 rods? Would fish caught in an anchored craft only be entered, or would trolling be ok too?
    This could be a new corner stone for our 2 nations. Brought together even closer by fishing. Imagine that.
    Unless we lose of course. :mad: Then I would have a bag piper follow you all the way to the border, and have back bacon and toques hidden in your fishing bags to have you stopped at the line. :clown:
