Yeah : found a lot more in common with some of backwater 
Californians (Los Banos, close to Modesto, or Merced) 
than some homeland (NZ) Aucklanders, or Wellingtonians.
(OTOH, if an All Blacks match ever coincided with a '49ers 
game it'd make a liar of me)
Don't know how representative or not Anaheim is
of anywhere, but some of them were damn near alien.

And what with Celine + Avril + Alanis + Shania, wouldn't
it get too noisy in Canadia?

Cheers, Kurt.
