Hey guys,

So as my profile says, I am the winner of the Microsoft Office Winter Games Blogging Competition and am currently in Vancouver reporting from behind the scenes at the Winter Olympic Games.

Don't worry, I've got some stuff in the works and should be cranking out some stories soon, but that's for another time and place.

Right now, I have a request/offer.

I have an extra ticket to the USA v. Switzerland men's hockey quarterfinal game tomorrow afternoon and would love to report alongside a Canadian college student. So if anybody out there would like to come, give me a shout at dylan.derryberry@yahoo.com .

I'm looking for somebody fun, social, and exciting who isn't afraid to cheer on their North American neighbors in what's sure to be a good game. This will be an amazing experience, and I would love to share it with somebody who is in my position. So Collegiate Journalists Unite!

Thanks a lot guys,
