RoutedEvents don't work exactly like regular events - the signature of the handler is EventHandler(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e). The RoutedEventArgs has a property called OriginalSource that represents the element in your UI that was actually clicked. In contrast, the sender parameter will always be the object on which the event handler is registered.
