Can you think of someone from your area that became famous?

I grew up in Sylvan Lake. I think of Derek Morris! (He was one of the top draft picks, now plays on Colorado, I think. Darcy, more than me, knew his family really well because he was the ref at our local rink. I knew them too but as more acqenitance...)

Remember Let's Make a Deal? Monty Hall is from here. Brett Hull spent some of his formative years here while his daddy (Bobby Hull) was busy being the golden jet. Randy Bachman, Neil Young, and The Guess Who, and Harlequin are all bands that come out of Winnipeg, too. Terry Fox also lived here for many years. Hmmmm. If I think of more, I'll edit my post!

And Chris Jericho from WWF - my cousins parked cars for all of his famous wrestling friends at his wedding a few years ago!

When I went to camp for the summers, it was in Comox - where Pamela Anderson grew up... I wonder if her and I met by chance?

Well I am in Toronto so I am sure there are alot. My fiancee and Mike Myers went to the same highschool though (not at the same time!) and he is pretty funny so all his friends would always say you must have got Mike Myers old desk! haha Than he transfered schools and it was the school Jim Carey attended so the joke moved on to that he got Jim Careys desk!

Wendell Clark(Maple Leafs) is from my hometown Kelvington, SK. He's a egotistical jerk, imo. There are 6 hockey players from there, though not all made it to the NHL. Some only got to the farm teams.

In Lloyd there are a few current NHL players Dad's & Uncles in my dd's playschool. Cory Cross is the only one I can think of. His niece was in my dd's class last year.

On TSN, Darren Dutchyshen is from Porcupine Plain, SK which is 40minutes north of Kelvington and where dh is from.

So is Scottie Upshall (Nashville Predators NHL). And Chris Phillips (Ottawa Sens NHL), although I think Chris moved here when he was a baby.

Michelle, I've heard nothing but amazing things about Sylvan Lake from my Western friends. They are still determined to get me out there to party one of these days. It sounds just like our Wasaga Beach.

LOL!! A hockey girl heard about SL, eh? From May long weekend to Sept long weekend it's beach volleyball and bikini's - for me hockey players from the hockey camps... partying and more partying.... There are some pretty ugly things too but if you're a tourist (terrorist) you'll just be working on your tan and having fun.. My parents still live there and my in-laws just moved out, to Red Deer (20 minutes away.) It's ok but I was glad to leave because the winters are BORING!!

Where's Wasage Beach? Let me know some details!!
Calgary - Jann Arden (anyone a fan?)
