– Yesterday, one of our colleagues claimed that Jozy Altidore was “born and raised in Haiti” and labeled him a “disgrace”. That information is completely incorrect. Altidore was born and raised in New Jersey, and he considered playing for Haiti but ultimately did not because he did not want to give up his American passport. Altidore has publicly helped raise charity money for Haitians who have been devastated by the earthquake.

– He may be rapidly becoming an American Emile Heskey, but that merely makes him an average footballer. Jozy Altidore is not a disgrace.
