Z’s SOCHI Blog
Sat. Feb 1
Welcome to my my second Olympic blog……my first attempt was during the Vancouver Games and a friend told me it was entertaining……..actually he said “interesting content…..entertaining spelling” but hey, it was enough of a compliment to stoke my ego and make me decide to do it again for Sochi. Humor aside, keeping this blog seems a good way to share the Games with so many people that have supported me during the many stages of my Luge Career. I hope you’ll check out the post ….feel free to comment…..and who know knows you might find yourselves slightly entertained.
Setting the stage…..Day 1

They are tasked with watching all aspect of the competition to make sure the rules are followed. Additionally if an Athlete feels they have been disadvantaged they can submit a protest and the Jury will rule on it’s validity.
We’ll………I’m suppose to be heading off to Russia as a Member of the Jury…..in reality I’m sitting in the food court of LAX eating Orange Chicken from Panda Express………My flights been delayed at least 3.5 hours…..it’s shaping up to be a long trip.
