Let’s Amend the Sanders Olympic Policy – US WINS First Olympic Medal in non-pro sport: Men’s singles luge!

Luge is one of those sports I would never do.  You get on a item like one of those sleds you buy at the toy store (but very aerodynamically designed) and slide down four times on ice surface with curves to the bottom.  UMM – NOPE – not for me.

But since 1964, men from the US had not medalled at singles luge.  But this infamous record is broken.  And since we have no pro lugers (as far as I know) it is a a sport untainted by sports imperialism.

So I did a victory lap with the US flag and decided if we win a medal in a non-pro sport we have not done that before, we’ll amend the Sanders Olympic Policy to tout this.  Here is the details from NBC Sports and a highlight.  It’s a story worth reading but might need a napkin or two.

[Chris] Mazdzer, the 29-year-old from Pittsfield, Mass., finished behind Austria’s David Gleirscher, who won a shocking gold as Germany’s Felix Loch faltered in his final run. You can see the full results here.

“It’s 16 years in the making,” Mazdzer told NBC’s Lewis Johnson after winning silver. “I’ve had a rough last two years, and it just shows: Don’t ever give up. Whenever you lose, keep fighting. “

So a victory lap for this medal.  And words to live by.  That guy is brave just doing that sport.

    The real story is what Trump gave the Dacacrats (Democrats) in exchange for passing his budget last week. The budget that Republicans in the US House refused to pass.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
