Good story, patsquire!
Funny story. At the last Lake Placid Olympics a woman luger who had trained for years and finally made the U.S. team, had her day of competition. When she returned to her room in the Olympic Village she overheard two local maids. One asked the other where she'd been, and in a disgusted voice she replied, "Oh, we could only get one day's tickets so I was up at the venue. And wouldn't you know it? All they had was a bunch of girls riding sleds down the hill!"
One of my favorite things to watch on the Olympics. Have seen the luge and bobsledders practicing at Lake Placid a number of times. Incredible speed!
