Mario at the Olympics?

A couple of fun Olympic stories to tell you about.

SOME THINK U.S. CURLER LOOKS LIKE VIDEO GAME CHARACTER MARIO _ There’s something familiar about U.S. curler Matt Hamilton. The red shirt, the red hat with a circular logo in the middle, the mustache… Some say he looks suspiciously like video game character Mario.

AND …get this…

U.S. bobsled pilot Justin Olsen is in PyeongChang and plans to compete later in the Olympics. That’s remarkable because just a week ago he underwent an emergency appendectomy. According to USA Bobsled and Skeleton officials, Olsen was walking around yesterday and was cleared to begin jogging. He posted a nine-second video to his Twitter account on Thursday afternoon in which he did several push-ups. Olsen, a three-time Olympian, had the surgery at a hospital in nearby Gangneung after being diagnosed with acute appendicitis.
