Men’s Relay Final! Oh What a Ride!

.
I haven’t even BEGUN to sift through my google alerts, and since photos tend to disappear rather quickly, I sure do want to make sure that these are not lost to posterity. Too many to post here, I will add them all to the Vancouver Olympics thread on the Boots and Blades forum as I can.

Congratulations to all the teams, but of course, mostly to our U.S. Bronze Medal Winners. I know I speak for everyone in the states when I say we fans are ecstatic that every single member of the U.S. Short Track Team will be going home with a medal from this Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.

So here’s to you our fine young men: Travis Jayner, Jordan Malone, Simon Cho, J.R. Celski and Apolo Anton Ohno. This has been an amazing Olympic Games, some serendipitous highs, some heartbreaking lows, and in the final moments, a happy ending for everyone. We couldn’t be more proud of you, or more touched by all of you and your willingness to share the experience with us. Thank you for taking all of your fans along for the ride!

(…and I think I have enough google alerts to sift through to EASILY keep me posting info on skaters until next September-when the new season starts! LOL)
