Arrivederci Winter Olympics!

I know a lot of people weren't too interested in the Olympics, but I've got to say I enjoyed them. The speed skating and the hissy fit that Shani Davis threw, our snowboard cross chick who yards away from winning gold, did a trick, wiped out and ended up with Silver, and Austrian olympians' dorms raided for doping. All sorts of drama going on.

The athlete of ours who I was most impressed by was Apollo Anton Ohno. Every time he was interviewed, whether he'd won gold or wiped out and not even finished, he was the most gracious winner or loser. He was well spoken and genuinely just happy to be there representing our country. A good guy you could really root for.

Congrats to Apollo and all of our Olympians.
