U.S. skier to Taylor Swift: Will you be my valentine?

Maggie Hendricks

Skier Will Brandenburg may have a slightly important race coming up next week, but his mind isn't completely on skiing. It's also focused on Grammy-winning singer Taylor Swift.

Luckily, Brandenburg had teammate Ted Ligety around. As Brandenburg was interviewed by MTV, Ligety set Brandenburg up to ask Swift out, allowing Brandenburg to ask Swift to be his valentine. Well-played, gentlemen.

No word yet on Swift's response, but a word of advice to Brandenburg. Judging by the bevy of Grammys she brought home a few weeks ago, Swift clearly likes gold.
