Yes, I'm shouting, and I'll take the negs. My roommate Charlie White just won Olympic silver in ice dance. He skated unbelievably well with his partner Meryl Davis.
My other roommate, Evan Bates placed 11th with his partner Emily Samuelson.
These skaters train 6-7 hours per day (and still manage to find a way to surf Mgoblog for a few hours per day). I'm so proud of them and hope to be there with them in 2014 in the pairs skating event in Russia.
So now that I'm done freaking out, I've been the only one in my house since the Olympics started. Time to let loose. Party on Michigan Ave!
EDIT: A big thanks to all of the Mgoblog community for the support of the ice dancers. I know being that it's a tough thing to cheer for members of a sport like figure skating when you're coming to a blog like this for football/hockey/basketball/etc. We enjoy all other sports too. Charlie and I used to play travel/AAA hockey back in the day and Evan's played BBall and is talented at a lot of other sports. We have a great appreciation for what this blog brings to all of us.
