Good News: U.S. Olympian Sends His Heart Home


Home is where the heart is—or hearts in the case of U.S. freeskier David Wise.  David, the overwhelming favorite to win the freestyle skiing halfpipe competition at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, has a collection of heart-shaped rocks on a brick windowsill outside the family home in Reno, Nevada.  He found a PERFECT heart rock for his wife in Sochi.  Long ago, he started a tradition of collecting heart-shaped rocks and bringing them home to his wife to show her that he was thinking of her while he was gone. They can be from anything as simple as a short hike or fishing trip, or anything as complex as a trip to Russia.  Check it out here.  Watch David compete on the 18th!
