U2 Sightings at Salt Lake!!!!

**hoping mods won't put this in the new sports forum**

I just spotted this article tucked away on page six of the LA Times Olympics section this morning:

SALT LAKE CITY (AP): A small but extremely loud Irish contingent was spotted yesterday at the men's 4X15 km cross country relay at Soldier Hollow, the venue which is hosting all nordic events for the 2002 winter olympics. The group was holding its own against a much larger group of Norweigians, using the requisite cowbells and even a Celtic trio of musicians, complete with fiddle and tin whistle. Spotted in the group by several people was Dave Evans, aka The Edge, the lead guitartist of the widely known rock group U2. Apparently Edge was not wearing his usual knit cap, but rather one of the wildly popular Roots beanies seen worn by the American and Canadian teams. The group itself was seen wearing football jerseys, wrapped in large tri-color flags, and sporting all sorts of silly and fuzzy orange, green, and white headgear. When the skiing action slowed down, they sat down in colorful inflatable chairs, which were last seen at the Slane concerts given last summer outside of Dublin by the Irish rock group.

The Celtic trio was heard playing snippets of many traditional Irish tunes, including "Red is the Rose" and "Sliabh Geal gCua na Feile", while several members of the audience apparently fainted after hearing little heard but beloved renditions of the U2 tunes, "Acrobat" and "Elvis Presley and America".

As a final note, Edge was overheard to have requested the trio to play the Grammy-nominated hit, "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of" for the United States cross country ski team.

There were also several reports that the drummer for the rock group, Larry Mullen Jr., was seen at the Salt Lake Ice Center Saturday night, giving the silver medalist, Apolo Anton Ohno, the thumbs-up sign, as the skater was being wheelchaired to the podium.

Elvis Presley and America? Oh, I would have liked to have seen that? Did they get the words right?

So, does this count as the "private party" gig?

I don't think so, although I heard that Adam was spotted at a party given for the American snowboarders

Duh. Sorry, I just got a bit over-excited at the sight of the word "Acrobat."

it makes more sense if you've been following the Olympics....so maybe I should have posted this in the new sports forum, where's there are a lot of Olympic discussions going on...
ahhhh

oh well!

on a side note, I was WATCHING Apollo, and completely by accident, just happened to turn it on when the movie we were watching ended, and I didn't see Larry ANYWHERE!! Not that I was lookin but if he was on the screen and my radar didn't pick him up.. but at least my Larry sensor was on Full Alert since we were watching the SAME thing at the SAME EXACT time. woohoo go me.

sorry, now back to your regularly scheduled thread...

lol, jez. I thought it was terribly funny!

I think one might say that we are a bit desperate for new U2 news these days, eh?

thanks, sula, guess I should have saved it for April Fools Day

I thought everyone knew that Ireland has never had a cross-country ski team....plus "Stuck" is especially appropriate for a US team that NEVER wins a medal in nordic events (except for one in 1976)

maybe I have a future as a sports journalist
