Strange Coincidence - My Role in Introducing the US to Shiva Keshavan

So a week or so ago, I was surfing around the Yahoo! Sports Blogs when I came across this Create-a-caption contest in the Olympic blog. Here's the image.
Well, I decided to use my knowledge of the Hindu religion to create a smart little caption (my Yahoo! name is maddog_207).
"And now for India's entry in the luge: Shiva, the destroyer!"
It turned out to be pretty good and earned second place. However, the blogger happened to come across an article that really freaked him out. He quickly posted a follow-up.
Apparently, India has one person who is competing in the luge this year at the Winter Olympics. His name? Shiva Keshavan. As soon as I saw this, I completely lost it. I had never heard about this guy prior to that posting. Talk about an insane coincidence.
As for Shiva Keshavan, he has an interesting story. Apparently, his sled broke while training and he did not have the money to get new equipment. Luckily for him, a group of lawyers stepped up and put up the money to pay for new equipment.
Even though he's not likely to place at the Olympics, I know who I am rooting for this year.
BTW, here's a picture of Shiva.
