ROSS GETS IN
After pleading, begging and trying to reason with Olympic officials, Aaron Ross of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars finally broke through the line.
The line keeping him out of his wife's gold-medal press conference.
American Sanya Richards-Ross, who won the 400 meters in 49.55 seconds Sunday night, was clearly delighted to have him there.
"My hubby is my best friend, my greatest supporter," she told reporters. "The fact that he's here tonight away from Jacksonville, where he should be ... meant so much to me."
