    To answer Craig’s unanswered question, Andrew Albers is from North Battleford Saskatchewan. He is the first major league player from Saskatchewan since Terry Puhl retired more than 20 years ago.

      Speaking of Canadian’s…
      You familiar with Derek Drouin? Dude is a stud.

        He is an Olympic Bronze Medal winning high jumper, but not a stud. The greatest Canadian stud of all time was Northern Dancer.

      As the best collegiate High Jumper (and one of the best high jumpers on the planet)…
      He’s very much a stud P.C.

        Of course he is a great high jumper, however, in my dictionary, a stud is still a stallion.

        By the way, he is from the Sarnia area. The highest earning athlete from the Sarnia area is former Masters Champion Mike Weir.

      Yes…Mr. Literal. Specifically, a stud is a type of horse. Stallion to be exact.
      At the same time…you do realize we use the word a little more loosely now right?

        I disagree with you. As a horse racing fan, the first Saturday in May is one of the most important day’s of the year. Furthermore, I enjoy listening to commentators at dog shows correctly referring to female dogs as bitches.

        Hahaha! I hear you. I am also a horse racing fan. We visit Keeneland every spring and fall.

        Great!
