Proud Moment

I admire Sasha Cohen's determination, class, and humility. I am still hearing rumbling about how she fell in her long program - that she again crumbled under pressure when it mattered most. Well, to all of those that feel like she let the US down - can you even ice skate?

Come on, this girl has got to have some chops. And she is obviously talented. So what if she didn't practice; she picked herself up (like just about everyone else did) and continued skating to her silver medal. Go pick on Bode Miller.

Check out Sasha's website. She is a supporter of Soldier's Angels, and emails our service members.

So true! I was so upset with most of the reporting on her; how she let "us" down, how she blew her chance at gold, blah blah blah. What about the stone cold determination this young lady showed by (as Winston Churchill said) never, never, never giving up! She FOCUSED after her second fall and skated PERFECTLY, knowing she probably wouldn't medal. Taht girl has some guts.

Bodie? performed just as I thought he would; big mouth waste. And I live near the home of the US Ski Team!

Graet site, I'll be back!!
