Olympic buses have Canada flair, Raymond Burr

Scotty1.jpgWHISTLER, B.C. -- Here at the Olympics, we spend a lot of time riding buses -- from home to the Whistler Media Center, from the WMC to ski jumping, from the WMC to Whistler Creekside, etc. We also spend a lot of time waiting for buses. (Not that I'm complaining.)

There are buses from all over. Texas, nearby Washington state and of course, Canada.

At least in Canada, they've made waiting halfway interesting. One bus is named "Canada Stars of Stage and Screen," with cartoon portraits of celebrities screened on one side. raymondburr2.jpg

OK. Here's a quiz. In honor of the 2010 Winter Olympics host, we're going to name some stars. Try to guess who, among the following, ISN'T Canadian:

 Christopher Plummer. Fay Wray. Mary Pickford. Raymond Burr. Lorne Greene. Chief Dan George. Leslie Neilson. Keanu Reeves. Kim Cattrall. Eric McCormack. Brendan Fraser. William Shatner. Neve Campbell. Matthew Perry. James M. Doohan.

Answer? Trick question. They're all Canadian.
