UGH We don't want him back! Did they really liken his return to that of Lebron James? Seriously they clearly don't know anything about basketball because Mario Deslaurier is more like the player who sits on the bench getting traded back to a team he used to play on....and he'll still be sitting on the bench now

I literally thought he had retired :lol:

It's cool, i mean, i always enjoyed watching him...thirty years ago.

He wasn't going to get much team play in the US, and I agree he won't see too much for Canada either. I think the place on the team for spruce is a welcome home courtesy. The real international bench is deep and pretty young.

I wish him well, and maybe he'll surprise everyone.

Who will make the team ?
Canadian team is all about politics. Eric decides who is with him and the Zieglers buy horses for those lucky contender.
Ian wants to be on the team for Tokyo so he will, and Eric will be on the team until he decides he doesn't wants to. Who will be the two others ?
Tiff just got a new horse and she has a serious string of horses, Yann Candele has serious horse power two and all the support of Eric, Amy Millar has proved her ability to jump clean with Heros and there are some serious upcoming young riders jumping Nations Cups with great results(Ali Ramsay, Francois Lamontagne, Ben Asselin, Elisabeth Gingras, Kara Chad)

Didn't he give up his citizenship or does he have dual?

Mario adopted her and her brother after he married her mother. I'm not a lawyer so I don't know if dual citizenship applies.
