Gold Standard — Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh

goldmedalists.jpgI know fans at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington remember this day. I know I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in a long time that I saw veteran sports writers, public relations people, baseball players, and fans awestruck/starstruck by athletes. It was kind of a big deal. You just don’t show up for work and expect to see Olympic stars like Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh walking around, joking and shaking hands. It was a real honor for everyone at ttreanor.jpghe park that day to meet athletes that represent the country. And they do it with such dignity. I imagine the feeling is similar to what people in the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Mexico and Puerto Rico feel when they meet the baseball stars that represent their homeland on the sport’s biggest stage — MLB.

 Misty is married to Marlins catcher Matt Treanor.
