Vancouver Hopeful

We might not have the Vikings to cheer for, but Minnesotans will proudly rally around blond, blue eyed Lindsey Vonn when she makes her Olympic appearance.
Her bio now lists her hometown as Vail, but she was born in St. Paul, MN and raised in Burnsville.
Every four years we are introduced to new heroes. In 1988 it was the Jamaician bobsled team who were loved for their persistence. While Global Warming is a debatable topic with some, many are more inclined to see climate change or at least weather change happening around them. It may be part of a natural cycle, time will tell. In the meantime, Washington DCers, have new opportunities to practice their snowboarding and cross-country ski skills. If the snow reaches Jamaica we better all panic.
