Four degrees from Lindsay Vonn

Lindsay won gold in the downhill at Vancouver.

In a letter to the NYT:

Back in the ’70s, when I was at Brown University playing on the only women’s college ice hockey team in the U.S., I called my brother, a varsity hockey player at Colby College, and asked him to get some girls out onto the ice for us to play. He did, and one of them was our friend Linda Krohn. Weeks later, Linda’s mother found out and insisted that Linda stop playing hockey so she wouldn’t lose her teeth or something. Now I smile with glee that Linda’s daughter, Lindsey Vonn, races down mountains at world-class speeds and that women’s ice hockey is in the Olympics, too. Portsmouth, R.I.
