Are cookies pastry? I always kinda kept them in their own category...

I'm not the world's best footy tactician, but I did graduate with straight A's (both in practical and theory) from Baking school.

No, cookies are not pastries.  Cookies lack, what we call in the industry, squishy-fluffiness.  (plus they're not made with pastry flour, etc.)

As for putting raisins in cookies, it's extremely difficult, even for the most experienced bakers, to make oatmeal raisin cookies without raisins.

The development of Canadians by the CPL is bound to put us over the top in CONCACAF, with the best bakeries, finally surpassing St. Kitts.

If you're referring to Phillips Bakery that's in St. Vincent.. right next to the library IIRC.  

You know when Wesley Charles, who is a St Vincent and Granadine national, played for Whitecaps in 2009-09, someone at the Southside came up with a Phillips Bakery chant. All I can remember, and I was only there that summer for maybe 2-3 games, was it ended "Phillips BAK-ery!!". Wish someone here could remind us how it went.

I stand corrected, thank you.  

However, if you're going to name a small island country in the Caribbean St Vincent and the Grenadines, and there's already a small island country in the Caribbean called St. Kitts and Nevis, you deserve a little confusion, no matter how good your national bakery is, and how close it is to the library.

6 countries in the world have the word “and” in their name. CONCACAF has 4 of them. So we are number 1 at something I guess.

That didn't make the list I found, which admittedly was just a Sporcle quiz :)

Rob got the ones I was referring to.
