As of today we are but one month away from the opening ceremonies of the London Summer Olympic Games. Thus, the answer to the all-important question of who will be the last native Englander to take possession of the Olympic flame and light the cauldron draws ever closer.
The odds also potentially favor middle distance runner Kelly Holmes or legendary decathlete Daley Thompson.
But I am here to tell the London Olympic Organizing Committee something they should already know – namely, KATE WINSLET LIVES IN YOUR COUNTRY!!!
Yeah. She does. She’s British! And because she’s British I strenuously recommend the Oscar Winning Actress earn the honor of lighting the Olympic Cauldron.
What’s that, you say? She’s not an athlete? Oh. I’m sorry. Apparently you haven’t seen A Kid In King Arthur’s Coat. That’s the one where Kate plays the Princess who assumes the guise of the Black Knight and rides in on a horse (equestrian, anyone?) to save the bacon of the Kid In King Arthur’s Court himself.
Trump that, Middleton.
So……are we squared away? Is it settled? Kate Winslet to light the Olympic Cauldron? Yes?
I’ll just assume yes.
DO YOU THINK KATE WINSLET SHOULD LIGHT THE OLYMPIC CAULDRON? YES. JUST SAY, YES.
