Smile Our Girls Carry the Torch!

I was so excited when I heard on the news this morning that Venus and Serena had the opportunity to be a part of the Olympic torch run. I immediatly went Online to see if there were any photos, and I found some :-) Wanted to show them to you guys. They look so proud. Way cool!

Ooooh...Just saw the pictures, thanks Jeff. I am so proud of V & S, I am so proud to be a Williams fan, I am so proud to be an American. I would make my signature the picture of them exchanging the flame, but (sighing) I don't know how. <img src="redface.gif" border="0">
