Golden Nuggets: Vernon Davis, curling motivator extraordinaire

Ninjames has a few things he's taking care of today, so I thought I'd dive in and handle the Nuggets for a day.  For those that don't remember, a while back we mentioned that Vernon Davis was named honorary captain of the US Olympic Curling team.  Until recently this job consisted mostly of running PSAs for the sport to get more folks interested.  Davis has added a couple new duties to that now that the Olympics are underway.  Davis recently gave a pep-talk to the team and it might have helped, as yesterday they got their first win of the games.  I can only imagine what that talk was like from Mr. Click-Clack.
