I'm sure you were probably considered an honourary Newfie long ago even without all those impressive connections and credentials, mcphee.
(Someting to do with the goats, maybe?
Aside: I bought a guitar in St. John's once and did an informal concert featuring my best renditions of Live's "Lightning Strikes" and Steve Earle's "Copperhead Road" at the Fairmont there. (I even tried to improvise the bagpipe-ish sections on harmonica, so that I could try to fit in a bit better with the culture, eh?
). Somehow I feel like this disqualifies me? But wait! I am the world's most stubborn defender of the Terry Ryan draft selection! And Ryder is in my .sig! Does that redeem me in any way? Probably not... oh well...
