A Meissner-eye view
She may be back there and I may be here, but few Marylanders can talk about the Olympics with more authority than Bel Air's Kimmie Meissner, a member of the 2006 U.S. team.
And she'll be spilling secrets at 1 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Sports Legends Museum next to Camden Yards.
Take advantage of talking to the youngest U.S. team member about the Turin Games.
She's a lively interview, good with kids and a truly decent person.
Ask her about "swag," all the free clothing and gear athletes get when they arrive at the Winter Games so they all look alike.
Ask to see her Olympic ring (Kimmie, if you're reading this, be sure to wear it).
Ask her where her Olympic dresses are.
Ask her if the movie Blades of Glory resembles the figure skating world at all.
Ask her who her favorite reporter is (Kimmie, if you're reading this, please say me. My buddy Kevin V already has Michael Phelps and Katie Hoff moved away.)
Just don't ask her if she has a boyfriend. Trust me, she hates that.
Admission to the museum is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for children 3-12.
