In one of those 
"you-mean-she-isn't-there-already?" moments, I just read that Christine Sinclair was just voted for induction into Canada's Walk of Fame.

Who needs a UP hall of fame plaque when you can get a Canada Walk of Fame star?

Anyone need a lawyer??

Christine is honoured (did I get that right?) once again.....From Yahoo Sports:
Christine Sinclair traded in her jersey, shorts and cleats temporarily for a cap and gown on Friday.

The captain of Canada's women's soccer team put on the bright red robe and blue cap as she was bestowed with an honorary doctorate of laws degree from Simon Fraser University in her hometown of Burnaby, B.C.

"This was a huge honour," said Sinclair, dressed in her regalia in an interview before proceeding to SFU's fall convocation ceremony with graduates on the Burnaby Mountain campus. "The last time I did this, I was graduating from the University of Portland. Obviously, things have changed."

Since graduating from her alma mater in 2005 with a life sciences degree, Sinclair has competed in two Olympics, guiding Canada to its first medal in soccer, a bronze in the 2012 London Games. Her many honours include Canadian Press athlete of the year and female athlete of the year awards in 2012, a Canadian Walk of Fame induction this year and inclusion among the 25 most influential people in Canadian sport.

The honorary degree has special meaning for Sinclair because many of her family members and relatives have graduated from SFU. She also considered studying there but was clear in her decision to go to university in the U.S. "for soccer reasons."

Ok, we need to have her as commencement speaker this year, if only to get a gander at these duds.

Christine scored today at the hour mark on a pretty solo effort after Sophie scored late in the first half on a near post header off a corner. Canada beat Scotland in Brasil.

Sophie played the left forward for Canada today.
