    Quote of note
    "It's time for everyone to move on. Forget about 'Suitgate,' all the conjecture, the thoughts and the theories and let's get back to reality. We're Americans and although we got knocked down we're going to write a new storyline in four years because who loves a comeback more than our country." - Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, talking to ESPN after the company renewed a deal with the U.S. Olympic team. Under Armour skating suits recently had taken some heat for the team's poor performance at the Sochi Games.
