I did come close to meeting her once. I actually sat on the same pew as her at Second Baptist Houston one Sunday morning a few years ago. I just think she's a classy lady and she always has a great short haircut and I'm all about that!
My second favorite Olympian is Debi Thomas. I always admired the fact that she was an outstanding ice skater, but maintained her college degree while training for the Olympics. She was always so graceful and poised. When she was beat by Katarina Witt in the '88 Olympics I was devastated. I will always remember Debi Thomas skating her encore at the Olypics to George Michael's Teacher. I guess that's why that song always reminds me of Debi Thomas and her bronze medal in the '88 Olympics.
Who are the Olympians that you'll never forget? As I've been writing this, I've started thinking of others that have been memorable for me!
