Not all foreign athletes take such a dim view of life north of the border. When he played for the Buffalo Bills, defensive lineman Chidi Ahanotu passed on finding a place in Western New York, and set up shop in Toronto instead. He moved into the apartment vacated by former Blue Jays outfielder Raul Mondesi and hired a stretch limo to ferry him down the QEW to games and practices in Buffalo. The son of a Nigerian father, Ahanotu loved Toronto's international flavour. "The African presence in Toronto is huge," he said. "Everywhere I turn there is someone from Egypt or Somalia. Just being around those people feels good." The multicultural scene also pleased Ahanotu's Honduran wife, who found plenty of Latin influences to make her feel at home.
how is that slamming?
