US Duathlete of the Year?...

jennyUSA Triathlon's 2010 Athetes of the Year will be announced soon. Will any Minnesota multisporters be honored, as they have so often in the past?

Maybe. But we'll just have to wait until the official announcement is made.

You've got spunk." To this the toothy Richards blushingly replies, "Well, yes..." The frowny faced Grant then gruffly announces, "I HATE SPUNK!"

What a great scene from a great "they-don't-make-'em-like-that-anymore" sitcom.

Let it be known that we here at MTN like spunk! Alot! And
