Being nice to Canadians 

ESPN's Rick Reilly has some advice for Americans in Vancouver for the games:
Pretend that you have to plug in your engine block at night to keep it from freezing, too. Makes them feel better.
Go to Tim's (short for "Tim Hortons") and have a double-double (two creams, two sugars) and some Timbits (donut holes) and stand around and talk about curling. This will be a welcome topic. The Canadians are still great at curling.
When referring to Elvis, be sure its Stojko not Presley. If you're talking about acting, don't forget the god of all Canadian thespians -- Lorne Greene from "Bonanza." If your birthday is Aug. 9, always look at the ground, shake your head and add, "The day Wayne was traded."
