Brantford: Olympic Torch Relay the day after.


And the surprise torch bearer is….. *drum roll*….. Kevin Sullivan. For those who don’t know (like me) Kevin is an Olympic middle distant runner who was born in Brantford.  So I guess I was wrong.  However I was correct, you cannot have an event in Brantford without a Gretzky.  Walter (Wayne’s father) was on hand to help celebrate the arrival of the torch.  Wally was the same cheerful, loveable hockey dad we all know and love.

It was a great night spent with several friends who I haven’t seen in a long time.  Even had my photo taken holding the Olympic torch – the closest I’ll get to being a torch bearer, and with Kevin as well.  All and all it was a great night and a great way to lead up the Olympics.

Here are some photos from last. They didn’t turn out the greatest, but they’re still lasting memories. A video will be uploaded tonight or tomorrow.
