Congrats to fellow North Carolinian Joey Cheek for a gold-winning 500m speed skate run today in Turin.
What I’m sure the mainstream media will NOT report is that Cheek announced he’s donating his gold-winning cash bonus of $25,000 to a fund to help those being killed in Darfur region of Sudan….another United Nations success story. *sarcasm off*
As you know, there’s been some media but not a ton [about] the Darfur region of Sudan [where] there has been tens and tens of thousands of people killed. My government has labeled it a genocide, and so I will be donating money specifically to refugees in Chad where there are over 60,000 children who have been displaced from their homes.
He just got a whole lot sexier, huh?
GO TEAM USA!!!! More Olympic blogging coverage here at Pajamas Media’s Gold Rush.
