All Sports is starting in grand style: at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

Mike "Rant'' Russo and I will be arriving there tomorrow. There will be some other Minnesotans on our flight, including the parents of curler Chris Plys. We've got 22 athletes from the state set to compete, and we'll be following them intensely, as well as checking out some of the Games' other stars and marquee events.

First up: luger Tony Benshoof from White Bear Lake, competing Saturday and Sunday, and skier Lindsey Vonn, the Burnsville native who kicks off her five events with Sunday's super combined.

They're not exactly having Winter Games weather; it was 55 in Vancouver on Saturday. No complaints here!
