    anyone following this?

    i have been watching the olympics after i get home from work around 9pm due to tax season

    i always seem to catch the speed skating, and it appears there is a minor-ish conflict between hedrick and davis

    apparently davis (first US black athlete to win a medal in the winter olympics by the way) decided to not participate in the team speed skating event...

    hedrick apparently feels that davis not participating cost the US a medal in that event and is further put off by the fact that davis never discussed nor informed him as the team captain that he would not be participating...

    i don't know much more about the situation but it appears that the US speed skating team and davis have nothing more in common than the color of their uniforms...

    and i think davis got the boot from some speed skating association but caught that in passing so no info on it...

    the media has been making this out to be a huge feud between the two...

    i just researched it a bit more and i foudn this on his website...


    i find this to be very interesting compared to how NBC is reporting it with their olympic coverage...

    Yeah, I never heard ANY mention of this

    I thought Hedrick was the white guy.

    "... if by 'discussion' you mean there a bunch of hitting, broken glass and screaming"

    Why did you put Discussion in quotes ?!

    And Chad I think is the speed skating roller blader. He seems cool.
