    And in that fine tradition the London Times has just pointed out that the Brit passport holder, Greg Rusedski, who just tested +, is the Canadian-born tennis player!

    I should have known that was you !!!

    And I've been thinking about making a comment about you being apparently married to an Irish lady! However, my lady friend used to be married to a Frenchie so I don't have a leg to stand on!

    and then on the island of Great Britain, are Wales, Scotland, and England. Northern Ireland becomes the other, and voila...."The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland."

    Funny that you are posting this ! I had actually typed in "United Kingdom" but then purposely changed it to "Great Britain" as I figured that would be more communicable.

    I am a bit of a geography wonk, and I do indeed know that there is no country of "Great Britain"... that's the geographical name for the entire island. And as you said, the REAL name for the country is "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland."

    Technical point...Scotland is part of Great Britain. The countries full name is The United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland. Hence the multiple country name origins we use: UK, GB, Brit.

    Eric Liddell, although running for Great Britain, was from Scotland, and Nehemiah went to Scotch Plains High School in New Jersey.
