Hybl pays an Olympic visit

During a stop at USA House, the U.S. Olympic Committee's headquarters in downtown Vancouver, I ran into Bill Hybl, the chairman and CEO of El Pomar Foundation in Colorado Springs but also president emeritus of the USOC.

Hybl served twice as USOC president, in 1990-92 and again from 1997-2001. He's wearing a credential here, but he's at the Olympics mainly as a spectator along with his wife Kathy and son B.J.

As we stood outside in the 55-degree weather, with me in shirt sleeves, I kidded Hybl about him wearing a winter jacket (although he was headed for a U.S. men's hockey game).

"This is the Winter Olympics, so I'm wearing my parka regardless," Hybl said with a laugh.

We also agreed that it could be a similar situation if the Winter Games would ever come to Denver.
