Origins of her name?[edit]

When I was watching her during the Nagano Olympics, I heard the announcers saying that she got her name from the childhood game "peekabo". Her mother and father had not figured out a name for her for several months and she seemed to smile and giggle alot when they played peekaboo with her, and so they named her Picabo. Just what I heard from the announcers. Maybe someone could validate this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:01, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

My recall from that time is that the talking heads said she was named after the town of Picabo as stated in our article.Rhodesisland (talk) 11:11, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

What movie[edit]

RE "A feature film based on Street's life story is in development as of late 2009, written by Eric Preston with director Charles Winkler slated to direct, and produced by Jeff Luini and Richard Weiner. Filming will begin in 2010 in Argentina." I can't find such a movie being made and this sentence "will begin in 2010"....uh, that's 6 years ago. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:43, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
