The other day in the Olympic Village at the Winter Games, bobsledder John Napier stopped snowboarder Shaun White and asked, “Hey, you mind if I get a picture with you?”
Both men are 23. Napier is about seven inches taller. White is about $30 million richer.
White obliged. Napier got his snap and thanked him.
Here’s why it should’ve been the other way around:
Napier, the driver for two of America’s six Olympic men’s bobsled teams, wants to do two remarkable things.
First, he wants to win a gold medal in these Olympics, something no American bobsledder has done in 62 years.
Then he wants to leave immediately and go fight in Afghanistan.
