Women's Ski Jumping
Those of you who have known me for a while know that I am a passionate supporter of this sport. If you can believe it, women ski jumpers are still fighting for the right to compete in the Olympics. The IOC refuses to consider a women's jump event, so the appeal has gone to court, with a Canadian judge set to rule on the legality of sex discrimination at the Vancouver games. Meanwhile, women jumpers, like world champion Lindsay Van, are kept waiting, not knowing if they will be allowed the same opportunities as the men in their sport. If you haven't already, I urge you to head over to the Women's Ski Jump USA site and sign the petition to show your support.

That's it around here. What's up with you?
