I still can't get enough of Lindsey Jacobellis and her stumble for the silver medal. I just like to see the dumbest move in the 2006 Winter Olympics over and over again. Call me sick if you want.
Luckily snowboard cross isn't a team sport so she didn't lose it for a whole team. She did this all herself. As much as she tries to put a "glass half full" mentality by saying she's happy with the silver medal, that makes me like her even less. Just say you wanted to make the cover of SI instead of saying you were trying to stablize yourself in the air. She says she's happy because she's the first silver medalist in snowboard cross ever. Well she'll be more remembered for how she got that silver medal. You've made your legacy as a textbook example for all future athletes to don' t do anything stupid until you cross that finish line.
