Toronto-born Jesse Palmer will become the first Canadian-born and trained quarterback to start a game in the NFL when he starts for the New York Giants on Sunday.
It's been a long time coming. Mark Rypien may have been born in Calgary, but his formative years were spent south of the border. Palmer is making history and all of Canada will be rooting for him.
Rooting for the Giants won't be easy. I still get queasy envisioning Scotty Norwood's field goal attempt from the 47-yard line drifting wide right. It's a painful memory for all Bills fans, but it won't stop me from hoping Palmer beats the snot out of the New Orleans Saints this weekend.
