â†µI care very little for a lot of what's going on during the Winter Olympics, but Skeleton gets points for being terrifying. It takes a special kind of person to win that event, and these screen caps from a few post-victory videos only reinforce that. Canada's Jon Montgomery took gold in the event over the weekend and then was greeted with a full pitcher of beer after the race thanks to a fan (bottom picture). Afterward, he made his way out with the people and was given a hero's welcome. I don't think he'll have to buy another drink for a few weeks. â†µâ†µ

â†µAnd for the video of the fan giving Montgomery is celebratory pitcher of beer, head over to YouTube. (And for the record, he's not doing anything wrong. Just fun to get a candid look at people celebrating four years -- or more -- of hard work finally paying off.)â†µ
