OK. Sure, why not? Check out this story coming out of the Aspen Daily News this morning:

“A Steamboat Springs woman will be attempting to break the Guinness world record for most hugs given in a 24-hour period at this year’s ESPN Winter X Games.

Dagny McKinley will be giving out hugs starting this morning as X Games competition begins at Buttermilk. She will be hugging spectators near the public entrance to the competition, McKinley said, under a banner reading “world record attempt.”

She is hoping to dole out more than 5,000 embraces.”

Let us know if you’re at the Games and you see her!!
