Oh Canada! Harder!

The other day Gilbert Arenas was not allowed into Canada because he did not have his passport. I had been to Canada "twice" before and each time I was not asked for a Passport. (As the family minivan crossed the border, I moved from the front seat into the back so that I could tell my friends I had been to Canada twice) But that was years ago and times change.

I'll assume that after the movie Canadian Bacon showed how easy it was for the US to invade Canada, security on the border needed to be beefed up. (wow, Michael Moore wrote & produced that movie)

I had a theory about what happened. I knew that Gilbert Arenas had dual-citizenship with the United States and Florida, so I figured he picked up his Florida passport instead by mistake. I don't know.. you know? Whenever I go to Florida, I show it at the border, and they always let me in. (that was bad)

But Gilbert told SLAM that he just forgot it at home and didn't go back because he had a fight with his girlfriend. While not a very good reason, it surprises me that an NBA star would do something that I would do if I was fighting with my girlfriend.

Several other NBA players made it, so it wasn't that big a deal. Canada isn't that great anyways with the driving on the other side of the road, the Spanish language, and the "lets put another shrimp on the barbie".

One Hell Of a Forgery...
