I havea better idea--throw Ken Lay in the caldron, then light it--and make room for Jeff Skilling, Andy Fastow and any other senior types who sold gobs of Enron stock while encouraging the employees to hang in there--but you're gonna need a real BIG pot.

hey..
Dr Go,
Welcome back....

I heard the flag bearer will be one of the speed skaters. Picabo is lobbying to be one of the bearers of the tattered 9-11 ground zero flag.

I heard Tonya Harding was in with a fighting chance.

It won't be Stein, he ran the torch last night, and lighted the Olympic Rings on the hill behing the U of U
I have heard former Olympian Bill Johnson is being considered.
And at breakfest the waitress says how about the former mayor of New York City.

Karl who??? wish he'd retire

I think we may have a harkening back to Lake Placid, so:

I heard today that there were more security people (army, FBI, police, etc) in Utah for the Olympics than there are American soldiers in Afghanisstan.
So, if the war against terror is supposedly the number one priority, then maybe the switch from Afghanistan to Utah is because of the flame - lighter. Could it be OBL?

Do you feel sorry for all those troups - stuck in an area full of people with strict religious beliefs, who have tough alcohol laws, treat women with scorn, but have nice snow-capped mountains. And then they phone their friends in Afghanistan to compare notes...

You think they're dumb enough to let Bush play with matches?

...after the damage he did by choking on a pretzel!
Where did your country go wrong? Although, I guess it means the next one must be better than the current pres.

Heiden or Eruzione...though Johnson is a good guess.

Not Heiden, maybe the 1980 hockey team

The AP is reporting that it will not be Malone and will not be Heiden.

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>"They asked if I'd be one of the last guys carrying the torch, and I told them I wanted to be the last guy," Heiden said Thursday on Sporting News Radio. "They said they couldn't do that, and I said, `Well, then, I have other things to do.'<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Kind of an odd response for a fellow who didn't want his medals to be that big a deal at the time.

I dunno about that Ali comment: a worse problem would be picking Ronnie Reagan, who probably doesn't do too much anymore (being 91 and unable even to recognize Nancy).

Bono??? Did he become a US citizen when I wasn't paying attention? Maybe the Herminator would be better...

Heiden's too cool to show up? Sheez, what's he done lately to justify the attitude?

I like the Bill Johnson angle; after all, he said he wanted to make the Olympics. That would explain why Heiden was told he couldn't be last, if that's actually what happened.

She could probably fit into Malone's warm up suit, just roll up the cuffs.

Actually, I think it will be this guy:

The Human Torch

Raubin is da winner!

Got to admit I got a little choked up watching Bill Johnson.
post #27 of 27
Is it too late for me to guess?

I've watched it on the BBC, and it was Team USA, Ice Hockey Gold Medalists from 1980(?), I am about to watch it on Eurosport. I think they will have Eddy the Eagle, cause they really like to show ski jumping.


Do I win?

Well, do I?
