"Hometown Hero"?? How is he a "hero"? Did he run into a burning building and save a child? Die overseas sacrificing his life in the military while rescuing the lives of countless others? Stop a runaway train from crashing into downtown Highland Park? No, he dances on ice skates. So.....he's a "hero"?

Interesting article in NY Times today on Jason and his music, choreographing and effort to maximise points without a quad. Any athlete at this level is amazing and we are proud of his achievement to represent his country in the Olympics. The fact that he is from Highland Park and actually trained at our little Centennial Ice arena is great for the community and an inspiration to all of our communities children and future athletes! Go Jason! Go USA! Also nice to see the positive exposure that Russia is getting! We expect to see many new American Tourists to beautiful St Petersburg, Russia going forward!

Yes, the word 'hero' is overblown these days, but it should all be taken in context. Here's a young man who has (within the context of 99% of 19 year olds in HP) achieved great success on a world wide stage. For younger skaters at our tax payer supported Ice Rink, he has shown what can be accomplished with some talent and a lot of hard work. If younger skaters can be inspired to work hard toward their goals, of whatever nature, then he is a hero to them. Go Jason, Go USA!
