: The Olympics are such a magical moment for the athletes and I love the human interest stories, seeing the underdogs win which almost always happens in a few of the events, and it's so inspiring to see the athetes shine on such a huge stage. And I need to have a proud mom moment right now because two of my friends who I've known for almost five years now are on the US figure skating team and will compete in the pairs event tomorrow night. Their names are Amanda Evora & Mark Ladwig and this is the first time they've ever been on the world stage. They're probably not going to factor into the medals but I'm hoping they have two great performances in the Olympics! From emails and photos that I've seen from them so far, I do know that they're having an awesome time in Vancouver.
BTW-I also run their official website so I'm going to toot my own horn by posting the link here. I know you guys won't mind, LOL

Heather great job with the Website. I will have to cheer them on to victory.
