1908 Centenary Celebration Matches

Two centenary matches are planned to take place in Cornwall to celebrate the 1908 Olympic final - a Cornwall v Southern Hemisphere players match and another high-level prestige match involving Cornwall. Australia have also been approached by the British Olympic Association to play Barbarian F.C. (The Barbarians) at Wembley Stadium on 6 December 2008. The proposed match would form part of the BOA's programme of events to celebrate the centenary of the first London Olympic Games.

Famous quotes containing the words celebration and/or matches:

    And, indeed, is there not something holy about a great kitchen?... The scoured gleam of row upon row of metal vessels dangling from hooks or reposing on their shelves till needed with the air of so many chalices waiting for the celebration of the sacrament of food. And the range like an altar, yes, before which my mother bowed in perpetual homage, a fringe of sweat upon her upper lip and the fire glowing in her cheeks.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    No phallic hero, no matter what he does to himself or to another to prove his courage, ever matches the solitary, existential courage of the woman who gives birth.
    Andrea Dworkin (b. 1946)
