I was just downstairs eating lunch and my wife was eating with me in the living room so of course we were watching CBC's live coverage of the ladies figure skating short program. I was surprised to see a skater who was not as petite as the others. She was very pretty and she had a wonderful outfit on. She was graceful enough on the ice but nowhere near the caliber of the others.

Her name is Silvia Fontana and she is 29 years old. She came out of retirement because it was important to her to skate for her native Italy in Olympic games on her native Italian soil. She did so knowing that she has very little chance of medaling.

Competing on the world stage for such a passionate reason makes her a winner in my book and is the brave mark of a champion in life.

THAT'S why I love the Olympics.

She's got my vote.

I was wondering if I could
have a postcard from Seattle
instead of a tire rotation?
sure. I'll let you know when I get them (if you're talking about the card I sent Chloe)
I agree with you. The Italians should be very proud of her!
She's way cute too.

Zona you are so passionate.

Too col.
cool not col.
yes I am indeed!

i sure like that shani davis. good kid! nice to see him win gold and silver. love the games
