CP Athlete of the Year

So for the first time in my life I said, "I am going to blog about this later." And here I am.

Moose FM sports director Jon Zacks has a vote for male and female athlete of the year that is given out by the CP. I have decided that since not very many people get the honour of participating in this vote that I want to be a part of it. He is going to narrow it down to 5 or 6 people and we will have a lively debate about who he should vote for. The female one should be a little more Olympics heavy simply because we don't get to see these athletes on TV very often unless it is an Olympic year. While the same can be said about Olympic male athletes you do have to consider the Morneau's and Nash's and of course Crosby's of the world.

Special consideration to Adam Van Koeverden for being on TV after choking in the K-1 1000m race and apologizing to the Canadian public for letting us down. He then went out and won a silver in the K-1 500m. He also recently donated 8 Lenovo computers to a youth program that focuses on improving computer literacy amongst youth. That's a quality human being and someone all Canadians should be proud of.
