Captain America is a hero. Every thought, word, and action he takes is in protection of others, without consideration of his own safety or desires. In the real world, there is no Captain America.

We can all agree it’s super fun when politicians and media personalities talk about cultures, countries and experiences other than their own.

I’ve only ever watched a handful of Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) games. And the only reason I did was because of the NHL lockout since, as a Canadian, I need hockey to survive. That being said, the games I watched were entertaining—though obviously many NHL regulars were in the lineup for those games. But prior [&hellip
