Hey FLREXXA...Have Pamela Sue Anderson,Rich Little and literally thousands of other Canadians that live and work in the US given up their Canadian Citizenship after taking American citizenship?NO.They are dual citizens like this gal.She never gave up her American citizenship,she became a dual citizen like hundreds of thousands of other ex-pat Canadians,myself included!I would consider it a badge of honor to have a Canadian citizen fight for American citizenship to play a sport on an American team.And so would hundreds of millions other Americans like myself!We'd be damn proud,not petty like you.Folks like you have a problem with Americans in general.Why is that?I guess you bought into the old, Americans are not as good as Canadians because you have a social welfare system that suckles you from cradle to grave.Free medical care and things of that nature.So that makes you better than us?Just because the vast majority of working Canadians are footing the bill to the tune of almost 60 pct taxes on their incomes to take care of the deadbeats in society does not make you better than anyone,especially Americans.And your education system isn't any better than ours either,contrary to popular beleif.So stop it with the disparaging of this young American lady.She will do Canada proud!

I saw Lauren play 2 years ago in Atlanta. She has worked very hard to get where she is. What is amazing to me is that how ugly, and mean people who have no idea who Lauren is or what she has done be critical. It is a great story of someone who saw her dream come true with many years of hard work. In Atlanta Lauren volunteered at soccer camps, worked with kids, and always stayed after the game to sign for the kids. Congratulations Lauren! You deserve every bit of happiness you have worked so hard for!! Thanks for always being so nice to my daughter and the kids in Atlanta!

...while it is nice to hear of this young ladies soccer success it's just another example of how unprivileged I feel as a "born here" Canadian. Seriously - her dad is born here to a serviceman stationed in Stephenville and this qualifies this gal to become a Canadian citizen. What a joke - one citizenship - if you want it you must give up the others.
