My Vancouver spies insist that Trevor Linden will play a significant role of some kind in the flame lead-up at the 2010 opening ceremony and I sure hope that’s not true. Linden’s presence does not resonate outside Vancouver and if he’s significant in this, it will make the organizing committee look small and all too local. This is a world, international event, not a celebration of the rather inept history of the Canucks.

Steve Simmons via Kuklas Korner. Thank goodness this clown has spies; I would hate to think he did his own thorough investigative journalism. And did this blowhard call out Li Ning during the summer Olympics opening ceremony too? Fairly certainly he wasn't a household name worldwide either. It's the host city's choice, deal with it.
