“I’ve had great fans, and they’ve been so loyal over the years.”~ George Strait

Most recently, the USA Sledge Hockey team took a visit to the White House to meet the President of the United States of America.

It sounds as if they all had a thrilling and most wonderful time.

All of the members are still living with pride for winning GOLD for their country.

I have to say as a sledge hockey player that I am still proud of these guys that they have won back to back gold medals.

Even the President of the United States was thrilled to have members of the team there at the White House.

It seemed like a great day for everyone as there were Olympians and Paralympians together.

So then we introduce to you this national treasure: Nikko Landeros.  nikkoFB

He posted an interest on Facebook that he wanted to go to the George Strait concert this evening in his area. And then a little bit later he also announced that he is now on Twitter.

I guess sooner or later it happens to those who have become our nation’s top athletes that Twitter would be a necessity.

As much as I have heard a lot of people that don’t really care for Twitter, the story for Nikko Landeros today gets very exciting.

I don’t know exactly how long he’s had his Twitter account but it nikkowould pay off in spades.

George Strait contacted Nikki Landeros via Twitter and promised him PERSONALLY  that he would have tickets waiting for him at the show that he so desperately wanted to attend.

“Thank you for representing our country!” Strait says.

I’ve always known George Strait to be a very patriotic person, proud of the country that he lives in and he’s always proud of all of his fans who are so loyal to him.

Being that I’m not exactly into country music, I can just imagine that George Strait just as any other musician is grateful to have fans that enjoy what he does. And when it comes to his fans actually going to Sochi, Russia and playing for the USA and winning GOLD as a team back to back… that’s gotta make him so incredibly proud!

I don’t know what’s going to happen this evening for Nikko Landeros, but I DO hope that he takes his gold medal with him. And I do hope that he gets to meet George Strait in person at some point this evening.

Thank you, Mr. George Strait

This story is great to write about. You never really know what’s going to happen when you reach out to certain people, especially on Twitter.

Thank you, Mr. George Strait for doing this for Nikko. And thank you again, Mr. Nikko Landeros for representing our country, playing your heart and soul out in Sochi, and winning back to back gold medals for Team USA. I am proud of you!
