I love the olympics for the same reason. I love rooting for all the de vander van quacken koops in The Netherlands.
I'm a big fan of Johan Olav Koss. Koss is boss.

I love the Winter Olympics, I just do. Love watching sports I do not care or even know about under normal circumstances. Love Norway and Italy going at it every year in X-country skiing. Finland with their ski jumpers. The Dutch LOVE of speed skating. Great stuff. If you're a dork like me, that is.

That's b/c of all the frozen canals in Holland. hehe. That's what I've always implanted in my own head anyway.

I LOVE SPEED SKATING!

Well, Phil, then you'll be pleased to know that one of my favorite athletes of all time is Eric Heiden, and I consider his performance at the 80 Olympics one of the greatest performances in sports history. 5 gold medals, 5 olympic records. Everything from 500m to 10,000m. That's insanity.

I remember Jansen very well. He actually does color commentary for NBC during the Winter Olympics now. I will admit to you that when he finally took gold in the 1,000 after finishing like 7th in the 500 in 1994, I cried.

Eric Heiden. Man, this is bringing back memories. Though, in 1980, I was 1 year pre-birth.

Oh, me too. Dan Jansen was such a great story. One of my favorite memories of him was when he fell(imagine that) and some dumb ass commentator asked him "Dan, there are rumors that the ice is slippery this year. Do you care to comment?"

Dan Jansen, "Well, Ice is always slippery."
best response ever...

Heiden is one of the many team Dr.'s for the USA for the Olympics and he is, or at least was, team Dr. for the Sacramento Kings.

Jansen's story was just so heart breaking, how could you not be teary eyed when he finally came through.
