An Invitation To Belinda

Belinda Luscombe (bio), a senior editor at Time, wrote today about the process she went through to become an American citizen. She also used this comparison...
In a way it's probably a shame if I'm the 300 millionth American, because I'm not nearly as excited about becoming one as most of the other folks here. They're mostly beaming and chatting in hushed tones with all the family members they brought to watch a three-and-a-half-hour ceremony with no music, costumes or red carpet. Basically it's three hours of sitting and 15 minutes of picking up paperwork. As spectator sports go, this is up there with a visit to the DMV or an ice hockey game. I figure they keep it dull to provide contrast with with the moment of 300 millionth American unveiling, just like how Jim Carrey movies are so stupid so he can look more funny in them.
You can read the full article but what I would like to do is invite Ms. Luscombe to attend an "ice hockey" game with me. I would hope I could change her opinion of the "ice hockey" game!
