The beard guy...can't say for certain. It's in the pronunciation of certain words that is the giveaway, like cawfee for coffee or and of course, the wooder for water thing SJ/Philly folk do terrible things to the O and A vowels. I don't mind though it's who we are. While vacationing in Utah I asked for a Coke, naturally to her ears she heard coooke, lots of long O vowels there, she looked at me as if to say, lady I have no idea what you just said. fun stuff.
The guy with beard is likely Canadien

Man, I don't really hear an accent. It's certainly not what I would consider a heavy accent, anyway. But I grew up in and around Philadelphia and my mom grew up in Kensington, so that probably warps my perceptions a little. (Now my mom's side of the family--they have an accent.)

How about Mike Trout? He is the Millville Meteor, I think because he is from there

I dont know. I dont hear it. It sounds very general american to me. Joe Flacco seems like a very straight laced person.
