POSTCARD FROM SALT LAKE CITY

Winter Olympics Salt Lake City 2002

Yeah, so maybe she's tiny enough to shop at GAP Kids.

And true, she's got enough sass to give figure skating's top brass a bundle of nightmares.

But is there any Olympian as cool as Sasha Cohen?

Doubtful. After all, Friday night, there she was, grinning away on a cold Utah night, handing President Bush her cell phone -- in the middle of the opening ceremony, no less! -- asking if he wanted to chat with her mom. She even shared a smirk with the Commander in Chief in the process.

It's really no surprise. After all, this is an athlete who said earlier in the week: "I'm just really excited to be here because I have the chance to tell the public what I think and feel."
