What's everyone's heritage around here? Where are you from?
This may have been done before, but I've been venturing out of the UFC section more and more lately and thought I would kick off a new thread.
The build up to last night's fight saw Cain getting a lot of attention of course, and once again the whole "Mexican American" thing surfaced. Now, I've said it before... I'm all for people having pride in their heritage, and completely support Cain and his Brown Pride.
A few years back my father actually paid pretty high dollar to have a couple of researchers do a study on the heritage of our name. It was fascinating to me.
The last name Clover actually originates in Wales (Props KRY!!)... however the group of Clovers that my family came from had settled in Ireland years before coming over here to the states... where some 100 years later, my immediate family would come into play.
So I guess I would be of Welsh and Irish decent on my fathers side. On my mother's side, it's Irish and Native american... so ultimately I claim my main heritage as Ireland.
Any of you guys or gals ever looked into your families history? Anything you can share?
