Hup Holland Hup!
Considering I am a Dutch-American, my favorite part of the winter Olympics is always Speedskating, of course. Team Netherlands and America have won almost 50% of the total medals in the sport with only one event to go. However, I have to give props to the orange team here. I mean the whole country is around the size of Illinois alone ... yet it manages to focus on this one sport and dominate. Some combination of dedication, passion and genetic adaptation for speedskating has led to their uncanny prevalence of podium presence. Anyway, I am in my orange jersey pulling on my "winter sports socks" and ready to hit the ice. Vancouver, here I come!
