A radio station in Buffalo, New York refused to play Canadian music Monday in response to Team Canada’s gold medal hockey win over the U.S. Sunday.

103.3 The Edge announced its plans on their website prior to canning Canadian content. American listeners joined in on the fun, by encouraging the station to continue to ban northern music permanently until the next Olympics.

“We hope you understand our passive-aggressiveness,” read part of the message on The Edge’s site.

The station said it’s nothing personal, but they needed to do something to make them feel superior to us, even if it was just for a day.
