It is being dubbed “one of the biggest sporting events in Canadian history,” so thousands of Canadians have taken the day off from their jobs at the maple syrup factories to soak it all in hours before there’s anything to soak in.

The Toronto Raptors are on the cusp of winning their first NBA championship in franchise history. At home. Against a formidable team with hopes of three-peating.

In anticipation for monumental occasion, countless Raptors fans have staked their claim outside Toronto’s Jurassic Park to watch the game on a large screen, standing up in a parking lot.

These lunatics arrived a day-and-a-half before Monday’s 9 pm tipoff.

This was the line to get into Jurassic Park nine hours before tipoff. In the rain.

This dude reinforced the ‘Canadians are the world’s nicest people’ stereotype by handing out free coffee to those in line.

Truer words have never been spoken…

I don’t know how tonight will play out, but I do know that Jurassic Park is getting burned to the ground by the end of this series. Win or lose.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
