VANCOUVER, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Injured your leg just before the Olympics? Try wrapping it in cheese. At least that is what American skier Lindsey Vonn has tried.

Vonn, the overwhelming favourite for gold in the women’s downhill in Vancouver, has turned to a home remedy, Austrian topfen cheese, to treat the shin injury that has made her a doubtful starter for the Winter Games.

“I’m pretty much doing everything and anything I can to feel better,” Vonn told reporters on Wednesday. “I wrap my leg in cheese.”

Topfen, a curd cheese, is thought by some to reduce swelling and stimulate healing, although Vonn said she was still in “excruciating” pain from the injury she suffered while training in Austria last week.

Vonn said she was also trying more conventional treatments, but had not taken painkillers.

Tomorrow? My dogs Olympics started yesterday.

I'll be working tomorrow and through the weekend, so I'll probably not turn them on. I normally don't anyway.....I might try to catch the hockey...hopefully the U.S. wins.

The opening ceremonies are tomorrow night. The actual events don't start until Saturday. There will be a lot of hockey available beyond just the matches that the US is involved in.

I am aware of that. I just want our team to win. And if I can, I will try to catch the hockey games. Maybe some of the skiing too.

Sounds like something Straddle would tell a female to do because it turns him on, lol

Wow, this one is really weird!

Yeah, and probably a real stinky cheese like limberger at that!

Maybe a Philly Cheese and Steak Sub might work better??
