When I first heard the news I was about 20% sure I heard it right. But thanks to Google, it turns out the comment I heard on the radio was indeed correct. Former Terp and current 49′er TE Vernon Davis has been named the honorary Captain of the US Curling Team! (VD in the Olympics) Now what exactly the job “Honorary Captain” entails is anyone guess, but it appears from the article that he will get to go to Vancouver for the games next month, and afterall isn’t that the most important part.
Apparently he has taken an interest in Curling and for the US to generate some buzz for the sport and excitement for the Olympics, they have given him the position. Now of course we won’t actually see him curling (at least not this year), but it is still pretty cool. Congratulations to VD, it appears 2010 is being as kind to him as 2009 was.
