Happy days are here again. Sasha Cohen confirmed to the Associated Press on Wednesday that she is returning to competitive figure skating. The 24-year old hopes to make a serious push at making the Olympic team for the Vancouver games next year.

“I’ve been excited. Every day it’s closer and real, so it’s very exciting to me.”

It’s exciting for all us, Sasha. You’re providing a great service to your country, no doubt about that.

Yeah, that’s pretty much all I got on this story. And yes, this is newsworthy and that’s why I published it. I should point out I’m a huge fan of the Winter Olympics, figure skating in particular. Don’t believe me? Just wait until I publish my Johnny Weir photo slideshow – it’s accompanied by Cher’s “Believe” on a loop. Trust me, it’s going to be fabulous.
