Vonn's gone, but Minnesotans will be everywhere in Vancouver

We all know that super awesome -- and hot -- U.S. ski racer Lindsey Vonn cut her teeth on the suburban slopes of Buck Hill. And if the Germans hate on her again with cracks about he weight, we'll reserve a special table in hell for them -- even if she calls Colorado home and she's not listed as a Minnesotan by U.S. Olympic team. But even without her, the land of 10,000 lakes, hockey rinks and ski trails will be well represented in Vancouver:
