The Canadian Connection

If it hadn’t been for the Vancouver games, I’d never have known that Steve Nash was a Canadian, or Donald Sutherland.  And I remember seeing Brian Williams, who I know is not Canadian and thinking he was CNN’s Brian Roberts who is – I always get them mixed up.  And did you know that gold medalist Hannah Kearney’s grandparents are Canadian?  They are.  And her aunt.  Dale Begg-Smith the silver medalist free style skier representing Australia was born in Vancouver.  Apolo Ohno learned to skate in Vancouver, though not Canadian, Vancouver is like his second home.  Local Boston NBC news reporter Amanda Grace is a native of Vancouver.  And Greg Duncan, the guitar player in the house band, the Jason Palmer Experience at Wally’s Cafe is Canadian.

I may be Canadian.  You may be too.  Who knows?
