Update: I’ve been informed that Mario is ALREADY knighted by Canada. There you go.
Here’s the first picture I’ve seen, but I’ve been under a bit of a rock lately, so maybe you’ve already seen one, of Mario receiving the Officer in the Order of Canada award last week.
It’s the highest honor one can receive for lifetime achievement in Canada.
So, in his honor, let’s just pretend Canada is a real country for today.
Don’t write me hate mail, all you pretend people in Canada.
Also, check this out. At Daylife, where I love to hunt for good Burgh photos from the AP, like the ones you see up there, it has a suggestion box while you’re searching, and please look at what they categorize Wayne Gretzky as:
Hockey player. Got it.
What do they classify Mario as?
Oh, is that ever church.
