Most likely he will, though I have some glimmer of home from his playing for free during the lockout. He doesn't sound like a guy who is completely mercenary, so maybe he will sit down and think about what that extra $1-2m could mean in terms of making the team more successful.

If we've got Ethiopian and Czech restaurants and Balkan groceries, I wouldn't be surprised a bit by a Russian store.
One of the things that really surprised me about the Triangle when I first moved here was the amount of ethnic diversity. Not just your standard Southern white/black/Hispanic diversity, but also the number of people from Europe and Asia, and how developed those communities have become in a relatively short period of time. There are much bigger cities than Raleigh that don't have a full-scale Indian grocery store or a large Asian fresh market.
