As a fan of sports that have little or no fanbase in this country, it's nice to see an American rise up the ranks, even if they won't get much love back home. As the alpine skiing season draws to a close this weekend, not one but two guys are vying to become the first American World Cup winner. The World Cup is awarded to the skier based on points earned in events in several disciplines (downhill, slalom, super G, etc.). It would be like if there was one auto racing title that took into account road racing, ovals, rallying and the like. Go get 'em, boys!
