Canadians Trying to Horn in on Super Bowl

So now Canadians, who typically distance themselves from anything having to do with the US, are trying to glom onto the Super Bowl. Just shows how big the Super Bowl is, eh?

Read the list of Canadian connections to this year's Super Bowl. It includes this amazing factoid:

  • The Black Eyed Peas will perform at half-time of Sunday’s Super Bowl game in Dallas. The group also performed at halftime of the 2005 Grey Cup in Vancouver
So a band that once played in Canada is playing at the Super Bowl? That's it? They're not even from Canada?

Another highlight:

  • The Packers equipment manager Gordon (Red) Batty is from Canada.
An item not on the list: Brett Kiesel's beard qualifies him for Canadian citizenship. The beard will be subject to a thorough search at the border. It is also rumored he hides a 12th player in his beard at key points in the game (a small player, like an extra DB).

What else might he be hiding in there?
