Vonn crashes out of super combined
U.S. teammate Mancuso wins silver
How about a rewrite on that:
Julia Mancuso wins silver to become the first woman Olympic skier ever to medal the three different races
Vonn crashes and does not finish race
Ok, that's probably too long, so how about this:
Mancuso wins silver
Vonn biffsYep—including my kid, fourth from the left in the bright green pants. She poses for pics and took a run down the mountain with the Mighty Mites (the little guys) on Saturday and since the Tahoe League was away racing that day came back on Sunday for more pics and helmet signings. She was friendly, accessible, and a great example for all the Squaw kids. The Mighty Mite boy in the house we share observed "She was very nice. And I think she is a little bit prettier than Lindsey Vonn." She's the whole package, and while we root for all the U.S. skiers, we save the loudest cheers for Julia Mancuso.
Julia Mancuso has three—count 'em, three— Olympic medals: a gold in Turin and two silvers so far in Vancouver. And lots to say and a great attitude. Listen to the two and tell me who you'd rather hang with. So maybe the media can switch their focus from Lindsey Vonn talking about Tiger Woods (the man plays golf for christsake—and sleeps with a bunch of skanky women) and listen to the woman who skis for fun, designs underwear, and before heading to Vancouver spent her weekend with a bunch of kids on her home mountain at Squaw.
