If you couldn't tell, Zion and I get way into the Olympics. And we like to have silly nicknames for each of the athletes. We've been calling Norwegian alpine Superman, Aksel Lund Svindal, "Cousin Aksel" as Svindal is a family name on my Norwegian side.
This morning I got official confirmation through my mom from my family in Oslo that the silver and gold medalist is in fact my distant cousin. Such radness! Such complete radness! As if the Norwegian curling pants weren't enough to make me root for the motherland.
