On the way back to Europe for a few races, the Vonntourage (Lindsey,
Thomas, trainers, etc.) missed their connecting flight and were stuck in the
Frankfurt airport for several hours. Lindsey, the faithful Facebooker, wrote a
note about how she used the time to have some tea and “randomly” bump

at another off-hill moment) read the note and commented that she would
“randomly” see Vonn again in Zagreb — the slalom race is set for Jan. 3.

Ski racer turned singer-songwriter Bryon Friedman was
recently chosen by Sirius XM Radio’s Coffee House channel
as one of this year’s top five up-and-coming artists. If he
makes it to the top two, his fate will be decided by the In-
digo Girls, who will award a chance to open for them next
year. “Now I’m gonna ask for more of your love and vote for
us,” read Friedman’s website.
