Wow, the Winter Olympics are in Canada once again. Friday, February 12, the Torch will be carried into the stadium and the Olympic Flame will be lit. This brings back a lot of great memories for me. In 1988, I was part of Petro-Canada’s team that carried the Olympic Torch to Calgary. I was Torch Coordinator for the mobile portion of the Relay from Sudbury to Prince Albert. What a spectacular ( and cold) way to see Northern Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Canadian flags lined the roads everywhere we went. It would be so great to do that once again. All the best of luck to our Canadian athletes in these 2010 Games and at least one person in the Deep South will be cheering them on…J.T.
