Monday's Birthday Shout-out: Vernon Davis Goes Olympic!

San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis has been all over the NFL map during his relatively short career. From click-clacking his way into the league to inspiring Mike Singletary's epic "Can't win with 'em" speech to becoming a Pro Bowl tight end.

But it seems that he may still have an athletic dream he has yet to achieve - winning a gold medal. Since it doesn't appear that the International Olympic Committee will be adding football to their roster of sports anytime soon, he'll have to go a different route. Enter everyone's favorite (?) winter sport...curling! Yep, that bizarre combination of hockey, lawn bowling and janitorial work could be Davis' ticket to Sochi in 2014.

It's a good thing he's got four years, he's gonna need it.
