It's been easy to swoon over all the hot young men participating in the Vancouver Olympics. Hell, there've been so many, I've lost track.
But last night, my heart was won over by a chubby, hair-deprived, blue-collarish guy named Steve Holcomb (far left in the photo above) who captained a four-man bobsled team and led them to the USA's first gold medal in that event since 1948. What's more astonishing, Mr. Holcomb nearly lost his vision, completely, to a rare eye disorder until it was corrected through experimental surgery.
So here's to the unpretty and unbuff men who took the sleigh called the Night Train past the finish line in record time. How sweet is a victory that's been 62 years in coming?
