The White House has refused to act on Bieber’s deportation, forcing Americans to try increasingly desperate measures to urge him back north of the border.
Before the Team USA-Canada semifinal hockey game a large billboard in Chicago decided to place a wager. The billboard featured Chicago Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane (playing for the U.S. ) and Jonathan Toews (representing Canada) with the words “Loser keeps Bieber” sprawling across the bottom.
