I was chatting with a guy from the States, who I met through some friends (a bunch of int'l students at the U of C). I asked him where he was from, and he said "Green Bay". I said something like "oh yeah?" since I know where Green Bay is, but he cut me off to ask, "ever heard of the Packers?" I said I had, and asked him if he'd ever heard of the Stampeders. "The Stampede? Yeah, is it fun?" No, the StampedERS. "The Stampede?" No, our football team, the the StampedERS. "Yeah, I've heard of the Stampede ... " :roll: I gave up.
(He has also been known to ask if there was any "American" on a German ID - I do believe the language is known as English - and after 3 months in Canada, he still didn't know that 0 Celsius was the freezing point. Nice enough guy, very friendly, but ... )
