On the first Saturday of the Olympics, I had gone up to Whistler to see runs 1 and 2 of the luge event. I didn't know what to expect, so I left Seattle at 5:00am to leave myself plenty of time to make it to the 5:00pm event. As it turns out, I got to Whistler by noon, and I had to kill quite a lot of time. I was busy taking photos of one of the Canadian skiers who was posing in his uniform in the pedestrian stroll and attracting quite a crowd when a big entourage burst through the middle of it all and kept walking. I figured they had to be more important, and turns out it was none other than Joe Biden who had been attending the ski jump competiton that morning after having attended the previous evening's opening ceremonies in Vancouver. I followed him through the village and even got to shake his hand.
