Okay, I just have to puff up with a bit of pride over the 10 Idahoans (four from the Boise area) who are competing in the 2010 Winter Olympics. In case you aren't aware, Idaho doesn't have a huge population. We're a large state (83,642 sq mi) with an estimated population of only 1.5 million (ranked 39th in the US). So this is a big deal to have 10 of our own competing.
So here's to you, Idaho Olympians. I'll be rooting for you from my cozy home in SW Idaho as you take to the mountains of British Columbia.
