How is Canadian then? He was born in Cali, went to school in Cali.

His dad is from Ontario, but that doesn't make him Canadian.

He has the option to play for Canada at the 2009 World Cup, and considering he'll never make the US team, he'll probably take the offer. It's basically the Brett Hull situation, just the other way around.

Who is Brett Hull?
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

The Orioles let Markakis play for Greece, but that does not make him Greek. There's a difference between citizenship and participation in these events.

Keep your hands off our Teahen or I'll be whacking you "aboot" your tete. Or how about a little swap....Teahen for Morneau?

You must be kidding? You live in Boston and don't know who one of the greatest American hockey players ever is? He's a commentator for NBC nowadays. Hockey must be dead as a sport in Boston.

I'm betting Teahen has duel citizenship (Canadian father and American mother). I'm in the same situation, and I do.

Of course I have heard of Brett Hull, but pro-Hockey is dead in Boston. BC, BU, UNH, and Maine are all still sick hockey schools, but people could careless about the Bruins and the NHL.

I assumed as much.

Doesn't it suck that arguably the best US hockey player ever is a Canadian? :-D
