In just over an hour or so, the Olympic Torch will run by about a block from my house. Unfortunately, I'll be at work, but I think that's pretty cool. The run by my kid's elementary school too, so the entire school will be outside to see it go by. I know there is a lot of controversy over the Olympics here in BC, the cost, etc. but I'm still a sap enough that I get a little choked up thinking about it going across the country making it's way to Vancouver. I just hope to see the leg that Trevor Linden runs on the news, as he's my favourite Canadian athlete...just love him, and I'm so proud they asked him to run it for a leg.
