Bloom May Return to Skiing

From the Associated Press:

Out of the NFL, Jeremy Bloom is returning to the U.S. ski team to possibly revive his freestyle skiing career in time for the Vancouver Olympics.

Bloom has announced he will return to the American team this week at its annual fall camp to evaluate how he feels. In college, Bloom was told he could not both ski and play football at Colorado because the skiing endorsements would make him ineligible to compete in the NCAA.

He fought the ruling but eventually decided to give up football to compete at the 2006 Olympics, where he finished sixth. He then went onto the NFL but was cut this summer by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
