A tennis player drank maple syrup during a match and it was the most Canadian thing ever
Canadian tennis player Vasek Pospisil just chugged a bottle of maple syrup halfway through a match — and it was possibly the most Canadian thing ever.
On Sunday, the 29-year-old tennis player took a quick break from his match against Gael Monfils at the Open Sud de France to refuel with the syrupy drink.
Fortunately, cameras caught the hilarious event.
Has a tennis player ever been endorsed by a Canadian Maple Syrup manufacturer? 🤔— Tennis TV (@TennisTV) February 9, 2020
Maybe @VasekPospisil should be the first? 🇨🇦#OSDF20 pic.twitter.com/dIccmOwM0w
Pospisil may have lost the match to Monfils, but he won over Canadians everywhere by sipping on Maple Joe.
The athlete even took to Twitter to endorse his surprising drink of choice, calling it "rich in nutrients" and "shockingly good in coffee."

This American NHL team makes sure to keep plenty of maple syrup on-hand for their Canadian players.
We always kept a bottle the bench for Canadian guys. The syrup got them going. pic.twitter.com/5ryq52Z3aa— Kansas City Scouts (@city_scouts) February 10, 2020
And this person compared it to the iconic Canadian saying "I smell burst toast!"
This might be the most impactful Heritage Minute since “burnt toast”. #cdnpoli https://t.co/U1cw3yBKfQ— Melissa Lantsman (@MelissaLantsman) February 9, 2020
Canadian tennis player Bianca Andreescu even took a moment to salute her fellow countryman, saying it "doesn't get more Canadian than that."
Doesn’t get more Canadian than that😂 congrats on reaching finals 🙏🏽 https://t.co/dDJ6xLMEdk— Bianca (@Bandreescu_) February 9, 2020
