  • Felicien up for AOY of Canada

    She's up against a golfer, race car driver and baseball player. Here are a bunch of links:

    I was going to leave the other "sports" uncommented on for fear of offending the Nascar crowd out there but I had a look at the photo galleries in the bottom link. Just based on those pics, there is only one "athlete" in the bunch.

    Perdita SHOULD be our Canada's athlete of year for 2003. Whether she is or not will depend on whether the media in Canada even remembers her accomplishment outside of sports like hockey.

      Actually, the smart money is on the baseball player.

        That's kind of unreal, if you read the third article... it says why each person should win, and why they shouldn't. It states Gagne shouldn't win because he didn't even make the playoffs; Weir shouldn't win because he was 5th in golf, not the top of his sport like the other nominees; Tracy shouldn't win because his ability is based on his car; and Felicien
        shouldn't win because track is not known in North America. What kind of reason is that? It has nothing to do with her ability or accomplishment! If that's the best they can come up with, they should give the award to her right now. Unbelievable!

          "The hurdler remained so appreciative that the lifeline had been there when she needed it that when she had a speaking engagement this fall, she donated the appearance honorarium of $5,000 back into the fund."

            Perdita is a completely classy woman. When she was honoured with the keys to Pickering she hung around signing autographs for people despite being so hoarse she could hardly talk.
