Not the way to kick off the Olympics. After a relatively uninspired opening ceremony, four Canadian sports legends gathered round the Cauldron to light the Olympic flame together. And then they waited, and waited, and waited. ♪ Blame Canada. ♪
Instead of one person lighting the torch, it was decreed that Steve Nash, Wayne Gretzky, Catriona Le May Doan, and Rick Hanson all light the torch together. After being introduced separately, they all stood around awkwardly for well over two minutes giving each other nervous stares and not trying to make any waves (they are Canadian, after all). Except for Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky looked like he was going to cut a bitch.
