Just a rant, but two players should be listed as USA instead of 'New Mexico'. Unlike Texas, this U.S. State wedged between Texas and Arizona is not 'a whole other country'.

I can say that most people who live in New Mexico are never very surprised when people have no idea where the hell it is.

Barry once issued a Press Release noting that players from such countries as London, Phillipines and The UK would be playing. It was hardly his most egregious error in a PR.

You are NOT at fault and you shouldn`t feel guilty for the ignorance of some and arrogance of few.
I always proudly anounced to others that I live in New Mexico when I was living there.I left NewMexico last thursday around 3pm.

There is no state in USA with as much history as NewMexico.:cool:

Edited to add: I think New Orleans may now be the New Mexico.

nm is one of, if not THE most beautiful state of all the states.

they shoulda changed the name long long ago. it's the only state with another country's moniker,,,,, unless there's a "new canada" that i don't know about.
