You and your brother , plus your grandparents , are doing a little sightseeing on the third day of your 30 Plus Teams Tour of Toronto .
You basically shopped until all of you dropped and ate until you were full at Eaton Center .
Now it was time to go to the Theater District and see the Canadian Walk Of Fame that your grandparents told the two of you about .
Even though they hadn’t lived in Toronto for more years than the two of you could remember , they still remembered where it was located .
” King Street past Simcoe Street . It’s near the Roy Thompson Hall and the stars are on both sides of the streets , ” says your grandfather .
Before the two of you see the first star on the sidewalk , the two of you notice a big red empty chair that is right in front of the now closed Royal Alexandra Theater .
It’s a seat from the theater .
Your grandfather wants to take a picture of the two of you on either side of the chair , since you can’t sit in it .
It just happens to be roped off .
Your grandmother has found the first star right in front of the theater .
It belongs to singer Celine Dion .
This isn’t the only star that you all see nearby .
Your brother has found the star of the man known as ” Mister Hockey ” , the late Gordie Howe .
The four of you keep walking , but you and your brother keep your eyes out for other stars of people that you recognize .
You both can’t believe that the names on the sidewalk were actually people who were born in Canada .
Like the next star that you see .
It’s the actor , William Shatner .
” Captain Kirk is CANADIAN ? ! ” , you ask , referring to the role that he made famous , Captain Kirk on Star Trek .
Your grandmother has stopped to take a picture of another person that she recognizes .
It’s the singer Paul Anka , who not only has a special place in your grandparents hearts , but your late parents as well .
Your parents always had his music playing at your home , and they would dance and sing to his songs when they were around the same ages that the two of you are now .
As you all continue walking down King Street , you notice that while not as big as the Hollywood Walk of Fame , there’s a lot of stars on the street and it’s just not actors or actresses , but people from every walk of Canadian life .
You want to get a picture of the CN Tower , which seems to be photo bombing every picture that you want to take of another theater , the Roy Thompson Hall .
As you walk back towards your hotel , your brother seems to be really excited about another star that he sees on the sidewalk , and he nearly knocks you down to look at it .
” OH WOW ! AWESOME ! , ” you scream out , just as excited as your brother .
Your grandparents have no idea why you two are so excited because they really don’t recognize the name .
But you and your brother do .
It’s Mario Lemieux and he’s not just one of the country’s greatest hockey players , he just happens to be the owner of your favorite hockey team , the Pittsburgh Penguins .
