Kikkan Randall, Team USA’s only mom, wins a gold medal in PyeongChang – The Washington Post

This is a nice story from the Olympics – there’s only one mom there, and she won a gold medal.

Also, this medal was a surprise. Cross-country skiing isn’t an event Team USA wins all that often. The last time was 1976 and it was a silver medal. (Which is still good, but gold is better.) The end of the race was, well, a race to the finish. Watch it here. There’s something extra fun about watching athletes surge for the finish line when they have skis on.

The First Time My Dad Gave Me ‘The Talk’

Wendell Pierce is great. Read this New York Times article about advice his father gave him. It’s not about what you think it’s about.

My dad prepared me for the worst of times while also enabling me to succeed in the best.

Gisele Bündchen Talks To Her Kids after Patriots loss

It may be the biggest game in sports (at least to Americans – sorry, World Cup fans) but Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady have kids too. Gisele had some life lesson-type words for her and Tom’s children after dad and The Patriots lost, something they’ve never seen before.

“They haven’t won in a million years,’’ Bündchen said of the Eagles, and it probably felt that way for the Eagles fans before their team won their first Super Bowl title and first NFL championship since 1960.
But Brady’s two sons and daughter were not easily consoled.
At one point, 5-year-old daughter Vivian blurted out, “The Eagles won the Super Bowl.’’
Replied Bündchen, “Just this time. Daddy won five times. They never won before.
“Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes.’’

This is much better than the “my husband can not fucking throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time” moment Gisele had in 2012 after the Pats missed out on having a perfect season because they lost to the Giants.
