    Some of the Christian Conservatives on the team should have boycotted.

    Here are the winners of the United States Olympic Committee's "Best of U.S." awards honored on Wednesday.

    http://www.teamusa.org/News/2014/Apr...-Award-Winners

    As the article in the original post mentions, figure skating got two awards, Davis and White in the "team" category and coach Kori Abe with a special award for mentoring and supporting athletes on the Olympic trail and afterward. Other awardees included athletes in slopestyle, luge, skeleton, alpine skiing, and the U.S. paralympic hockey team.

    The "world's greatest fan" award was nabbed by the second and third grade classes at Horace Mann elementary school in West Allis, Wisconsin. (Personally, I thought the first graders at Thomas Edison Elementary of Butte, Montana, were robbed. )

    This will be on NBC Sports Network TV next Monday, featuring Michelle Kwan and Even Lysacek as presenters and Tara, Johny, and Sarah Hughes doing interviews.

    I heard that President Obama was planning to meet and congratulate the winners, but that he was not able to make it because of the shooting incident at Fort Hood the same day. I don't know if this is true or not, but Obama did make some addresses about the situation in Texas that evening.
