Who is Brett Hull?

I think he played in New York, like every good player in every major sport...

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

Yes, we cry ourselves to sleep every night over it. :-b :-D

Meh, i could careless. The best US curling player might be Swiss, but it wouldn't bother me, since no one cares about that sport either. If Hull played a real sport, like Lacrosse, that might be a different story.

I do believe lacrosse is Canada's national sport, sorry.

Edit: apparently the national sports act of 1994 made hockey the official winter sport and lacrosse the official summer sport. Why they have to change all the things I learned in grade school?

Sorry, box lacrosse is not a real sport either. Why don't your Canadians play anything outside?

The Canadians are the best at that sport as well.

And of course in baseball, Canada beat the US in the most recent World Cup, so we've got you there, too. :-b
