stormy kromer

continuing on the olympics theme,
Stormy Kromer (also known as the elmer fudd hat) was named the official lifestyle 
apparel sponsor of the 
USA ski jumping and the official fashion wear supplier of the women's 
ski jumping USA.
i learned of this last summer when we were in
mackinac at the
mackinac clothing store.

i was talking to the very nice lady as she was ringing me up
 and she asked where we were
i told her and said we hadn't been back in mackinaw since our honeymoon
many, many many years ago.
as i was telling her this another
women walked by and chimed in
that she hadn't been back to mackinaw since her honeymoon.
she looked to be in her late 70's.
 the shop lady said oh, how long have you been married?
she replied 8 weeks.  : )

they are made in the good ol' USA
history here

here is the olympic version.
 this year is the 1st time the women's ski jumping team is competing in the olympics.
my grandpa and uncles were ski jumpers.
little partial to this event.
