Who will light it up
So tomorrow is the day I've been waiting for for so very long. Bring on the Olympic fanfare!!! My mother posed a question to our family tonight and I thought it would make for a good blog post for anyone who enjoys the games. The question... Who do you think is going to be the person to light the cauldron? There are plenty of rumors going around. Wayne Gretzky? Kurt Browning? Nancy Green? Mom even heard something about a hologram of Terry Fox doing it.
My first thought was Rick Hansen. Elvis Stoiko (god I hope not). Myriam Bedard?
If you remember (I didn't, I looked it up) it was a 12 year old figure skater, Robyn Perry who had the honor at the '88 games in Calgary. That proves that it doesn't have to be a famous Canadian athlete. Just for fun, I'd love to hear who you think it might be.
Go Canada Go!
