And the number of Olympic medals Hudson Valley won is…

Zero. But that really doesn’t matter to me at all because it’s still pretty freakin awesome that we had at least seven athletes compete in the Olympics.olympic_closing_ceremony_msnbc.jpg

They all deserve their props including Yonkers native James Blake. He lost the bronze medal match in tennis, but he deserves a gold medal in my book for beating Roger Federer, the world’s best tennis player, in an earlier match.

(Editors note: According to my research, nobody from the Hudson Valley won a medal. But I may have missed someone, so I do apologize in advance if I am wrong).
