Awww.

]]> The men’s Alpine Skiing event coincidentally kicks off Monday, Feb. 15 so maybe Brandenburg’s Taylor Swift love will propel him to a medal in his event. Brandenburg is a first-time Olympian, but grew up skiing not far from the Vancouver games in Walla Walla, WA. Will has only a handful of World Cup starts, but showed potential in races after coming back from knee surgery. So Taylor Swift… ball’s in your court.
