The Wrong Adam Jones....

Sometimes it isn't so great to have a common name. Just ask Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones.

Apparently sometime last night, Jones, who was in transit with his team to Toronto to face the Blue Jays, was detained at the airport in Canada.

The reason, his name showed up on a database as someone with a conviction to his name, something that Canadian authorities are now detaining people entering there country for. We aren't saying, nor is he, that he was mistaken for the ever popular Adam "Pacman" Jones, but just do the math.

More from Baltimore Sun RIGHT HERE

Overall, this will be just a "blip" on the radar screen, but it is somewhat interesting. We don't quite get how Canada can not allow people who've done something that they feel is a major offense, which might not be considered as such in their own country, but it is their country we suppose.

For those unfamiliar with Baltimore's Adam Jones, check out this video. Thanks You Tube:
