LOL, I saw the title and was expecting a ukulele-pistol :D. A Luger is someone who participates in the sport of Luge - a one or two person upright sled on a run a bit like bobsleigh.

OOPS! I fixed the link in her name, which now goes to the ESPN story.

My apologies!

Ah... right.

Tell me, how does someone from Liverpool come to know about luge. Get a lot of that on Merseyside these days, eh? :D

To my shame, I've never heard of it. :o

Ditto. I was fascinated to read a story about how the old DWM munitions factory in Germany was now building ukes for Bruko or something like that.

Not quite.

Hey, Everyone - thanks for supporting Kate Hansen in her attempt to become the world's first UPOA (Ukulele-Playing Olympic Athlete)!

She did well today in the World Cup event in Austria. If she does well in the next two races in the next two weeks, she will make the USA Olympic team. Cheer loud!
