Why Picabo?

I quote from the end of my first post:

One of the first Olympic “let’s get to know our athletes better” slop side stories I can remember focus on an America skier named Picabo Street (in the correct sport she would’ve been such a cult darling). Anyway, I remember the sage commentator relating that her parents did not name the young skier for a couple of months after her birth- probably because they were busy with Mary Jane. She apparently loved playing the game picaboo and responded to that nomenclature more than anything else. Her parents started calling her Picabo as a place holder, which evidently held for the skier’s entire life. I really responded to that story; so, to borrow the logic of the Streets, I will call this blog Picabo as a temporary placeholder. Who knows, maybe it will take off like the skier.”
