The Real Gold
Lost in all of the drama between speedskaters Shani Davis and Chad Hedrick is teammate and fellow gold medalist Joey Cheek. Cheek has outclassed all other athletes at the Olympics by donating the $40,000 from his Gold and Silver medal performances to Right to Play which will use the money for children in Chad and the Darfur region in Sudan. When was the last time you heard anybody do that? It is rumored that Cheek will carry the flag for the United States at the closing ceremony. It is fitting and appropriate. Does anybody remember who Bode Miller is?
