The US team had a big day with 3 Gold medals in one historic day.
Lindsey Vonn, the SI cover girl, overcame injury to win the women's downhill. Shaun White did a 'McTwisty' (whatever that is) to rule the snowboard half-pipe. Shani Davis repeated by taking the 1,000 meter speed skating crown.
Congratulations to all. Job well done!! Your country is proud.
The sad reality is that 2 of the 3 amazing Olympians will be afforded many opportunities to parlay their glory into millions of dollars and one will fade back into obscurity and a 9 to 5.
And sadder still...we all know which unfortunate person that is.
