Did you hear about the Jamaican bobsled team qualifying for the Sochi Olympics? It's like Cool Runnings 2, but in real life and amazing!
The only problem is, they're struggling to get there to compete!
Luckily, Olympic organizers offered to pay for their travel costs, but they STILL need money for equipment! It's been 12 years since they've been able to compete — so the internet is stepping in!
They estimated they needed

We, along with a whole bunch of other people, were shocked to hear that Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones was going to try and enter the Sochi Olympics… mainly because Sochi is a Winter Olympics, and winter doesn't have hurdling!
That's when she said she'd be trying to get into BOBSLEDDING instead!

Evan Lysacek will NOT be doing any sow cows (also knowns as Salchows for people who want to be correct instead of fun!) during the Olympic Games in Sochi, because he won't freakin' be there! AHHH!

Oh the woes of being famous enough to have overzealous fans!
Ryan Lochte, Olympic swimmer and ex-reality show haver, has been injured by an excited fan — and has been hurt enough that he'll be out of the pool for a while!
