‘The Herm’ meets ‘Term’

 

The Terminator joined the “Herminator” at the Alpine skiing world championships in Schladming, Austria. Austria-born Arnold Schwarzenegger and skiing great Hermann Maier (pictured) shared the stage Monday during a rain-drenched opening ceremony. The championships are in Schladming, which is part of the province where the superstar actor and former California governor grew up. Schwarzenegger said: “I still call this my home. Here I was born and I grew up. Here I started my career and found my way into the world.” Maier retired in 2009 and was nicknamed “The Herminator” after Schwarzenegger’s “Terminator” movies. The worlds begin today with the women’s super-G and end with the men’s slalom on Feb. 17. – AP
