Not to burst your bubble, but I think you're leaving out the U.S. athletes entering an incredible breadth of pro sports here. Our elite athletes generally go where the money is: NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL (like a much larger percentage of Canadians), boxing, Track and Field, et. al. The mind races at the thought of what a fighter with the physical gifts of Terrell Owens could do. I can appreciate a little post-fight testosterone-filled nationalism, though. Rock on, my northen brothers!
