Re: (plug) Tax deductible CC spend Opportunity--support the Israel Olympic dream Wow, that looks great!  It's amazing what you've accomplished so far, keep it going!  I can't imagine the sense of pride an accomplishment you must feel just putting on that jacket.

Re: Ask AJ Edelman Anything: DDF Member And Member Of The 2018 Israel Olympic Team! I thought the background info that he gave was really nice. He was explaining that even though hes new to skeleton he is a great athlete. Something that might be uncommon in the sport.

Re: Ask AJ Edelman Anything: DDF Member And Member Of The 2018 Israel Olympic Team!
Just came across this article on OU.org
Nice little family history.

https://www.ou.org/life/inspiration/hebrew-hammer-lifes-platinum-medal/
Half decent article. Except for the nauseating shidduch part. Also, just a drop of research would have saved all those tissues. Too lazy to. Find it but aj said and it was very common knowledge that he really had no chance at medaling

Re: United 24 hour policy
Is the 24 hour cancellation policy for United tickets enforced. It says if booked with in one week you can t cancel within 24 hours.
If I book today for next Sunday can I am within or out of the 24 hours policy?
Youll still have 24 hours to cancel.

Re: BobTeam Edelman / 2022 Olympics thread You are entirely self-funding this team?!  Have you tried the Jewish sports team owners?

And donations/sponsorships are tax deductible?  Why raffle your ring? Honestly I would think it's the one thing I wouldn't sell. :o

How many Starwood points would @Dan have to bid to win the ring outright?

Re: BobTeam Edelman / 2022 Olympics thread
Thanks for the suggestion @bestwatchman I really appreciate it.  Unfortunately as we were rejected, trying to get into Canada again under the same circumstances would result in us getting into some trouble, so we are instead headed to Korea tomorrow!
wow! Safe and productive trip!!

Re: BobTeam Edelman / 2022 Olympics thread
Trying!
Mason's back gave out today, and onto another breakman. It's been a real logistical and mental journey to say the least.
Oh my!
Hope things work out smoothly.
Good luck!

70$ a run. Very expensive.

First crash. Not a good day




Wow

Ouch!
Your outlook is awesome!
So true, you won't succeed if you aren't willing to fail. And bouncing right back like you do is inspiring!

I'm very sorry that the last few weeks haven't had an update. Things have been harder than I thought they'd get to.


Thank you for caring and being supportive. It means the world.

Wow.  Raw honesty.  I really hope you make it and I hope more people here will try to help out financially. I donated some time ago and I will definitely try to contribute again.



@all of DDF.  if I remember correctly a run is like to $70.  Can we raise in the next 24 hours at least $500 to cover a few runs?

@hgeek23 you are extremely inspiring!

Re: BobTeam Edelman / 2022 Olympics thread

I'm very sorry that the last few weeks haven't had an update. Things have been harder than I thought they'd get to.

We had a couple of articles come out about the team. One in the New York Times that focused on the brain injury aspects of things and one in algemeiner which was quite nice.  The team has grown by leaps and bounds and gets faster every day. We are making huge progress and it's in many ways beyond what I thought I could see. I'm very proud of that.

Things get difficult on the road, but here things have just been mentally very tough. Our (my) bank account hit absolute zero and the season's only half over, which is obviously a source of stress but the biggest source has been managing the team. Depression has been something I have dealt with for 19 years--it's a life's mission of mine to talk to kids about how it motivates me, but it can make things really tough and in this circumstance it has. Nonetheless it hasn't actually impeded development, probably the opposite. But it burns the internal candle quite fast, and thankfully Israel and the mission is the oil that replenishes.

The Olympics require an immense, 24/7/365 dedication to a goal that is generally unobtainable. Being a very average athlete, below average I might say by Olympic standards, the only way to ever get Israel to the Games has been to work harder than anyone else. No matter what my athletic shortcomings, knowing that I outworked even the world champions gave immense pleasure and confidence. But that takes a toll, and the toll becomes very difficult to keep on top of if not everyone is pulling their weight. At the moment that is the largest issue, and one which ultimately means the team makeup might not be the same in the Olympic season.  That's all I can really say at the moment, but it's been crushing.

The self doubt has set in as it usually does on an Olympic run. "I'm not where I could be, I could be better," are constant thoughts. Bobsled is hard. Grueling. Physically it's exhausting. But I firmly believe Israel will benefit and that this will happen. I know it strongly in my heart. I just need to work harder and get better. At the end of the day the only thing that matters is the result. There's no "almost made the" Olympic Games event.

Usually I'm far more cheerful, but that's where things have been and why I've been quite quiet recently. I honestly don't know how the team will financially make it through at the moment and that's a really tough one.

Thank you for caring and being supportive. It means the world.
AJ

P. S. Since the first crash, in the 75 or so runs since, not a single crash

Wow, wow, wow. My words won't be able to fully express my thoughts and feelings.

Firstly, no need to apologize, you have every right not to post, but it's so good to hear from you, and to read  all the really amazing updates.

I am so happy that you have gotten good publicity, I really that helps with the funding also.

I'll say it again, your attitude, strength of character and fortitude - awe and never fail to amaze me. How you just face things head on and just plow forward undeterred are really something wow. I am literally awed.

KEEP ON PUMPING!
Pull through to the victory not only in the olympics, but in the leadup as well. You are something else and inspiring me.
