where did the habit of referring to a hockey player or any other type of sport as a "product" of some city, state, province, or country? is this normal for the english language? it sounds insulting when I read so and so is the product of gooseturd Saskatchewan or what have you. am I wrong to get annoyed when I hear or read this phrase in the newspaper?
also I hate the term "Sea Change". How do you change a sea?
