Hoping Sir Steve Lights the Cauldron….

I, along with many others, am hoping that Sir Steve Redgrave gets to light the cauldron tomorrow night in London.  He is one of the very few who (though he never would) could legitimately claim to be among the greatest athletes in any sport from any era.  He is one of only four athletes of any sport to have won a gold medal at 5 consecutive Olympics from 1984-2000, dominating his sport worldwide for more than 20 years.  I will never forget how the whole world was pulling for him in 2 seat in the last 250m of the Sydney Olympic finals, when everyone knew it was his last race, and the Brits put the hammer down to win by half a length over Italy the home team from Australia with my buddy Geoff Stewart in the boat.  Here’s to Sir Steve and cheers to Britain’s greatest Olympian on hosting the Games at home!
