    guess we can expect kobe to go down in a heap, too. everybody's trying to set records for comebacks from serious injuries at advanced ages.

    Older? Jesusfuckingchrist she's 29, a whole 5 months older than Adrian Peterson. I do agree that people are pushing the envelope in terms of shortened recovery times but I don't think you can chalk it up to being "older" when these folks are still in their prime athletically.

    All I'm saying is that, as a ski racer, when you are severely injured and you are 20-26, you can be more aggressive in your comeback, than when you are severely injured and you are 30. How many more years do you think she has left on the W.C. circuit? My guess, even without the setback, is 0-2.

    Seriously, 29-30 is fucking old for a professional athlete that isn't a golfer.

    Baseball players peak at 28 give or take and they aren't competing in as physically demanding a sport.

    Football players probably bout 25.

    Swimmers that aren't Michael Phelps peak in their early to mid 20's.

    Basketball players over 30 almost always are former versions of themselves.

    The list goes on.

    She wont ever be the same.

    ^3 I think. Pretty sure she has 59.

    She'll be back at least for 3 more years. If she can ski on this knee I imagine she will ski the Olympics, get surgery, and rehab properly.

    Maybe she can do DH and SG. Less technical, less chance of hooking a gate. Like to see her ski. Turn off volume when she talks.

    Without Vonn competing, the media vultures will be circling looking for their next meal (although I'm sure they will work Lindsey in there somehow).
    I'm 100% with you. After seeing her ski in person she doesn't destroy as much as she flows and rails. Not a brute and not a total shit bag ( albeit different discipline) like Lindsay. She is so rad and fired up I hope we don't have to deal with Vonn/Tiger leading into and during the olympics.

    ^^^^this. having to listen to Costas, Lauer et al will be vomit inducing enough. sure they'll be all over the screen anyway. "Tiger bought me a new knee. He's such a goof."

    On a positive note, as woman in her late 20's she's just hitting stride, from a sexual standpoint.

    I love to watch her ski but as mentioned by an earlier post . . . . can't stand her interviews. Self obsessed melodrama. Her documentary from a few years back is on netflix and even my kids couldn't stand the tone of it. Daddy issues for sure.

    Hope she makes it back to the podium at some point and does not fade . . . really sucks for her to get hurt before the big spotlights turn on.

    Just saw the update. Really sucks.

    As hard as it is in sports these days to separate the athlete from the image, you'd still think a skier would get a pass in places like this.

    Oh well, even if she did annoy me I'm still not sure I'd wish her an early retirement. Whatever, it's TGR-cubejokeydom right?

    Speedy recovery Lindsey, hope the fastest team on earth gets you back soon.

    Seriously, I can hardly find any goddamn stoke anywhere in Ski/Snowboard but sorry assholes practicing schadenfreude are never in short supply.

    Am I glad she blew her ACL? Fuck no and my comment was before the ACL (not that that excuses it) but it's not like I started a Facebook campaign to get her fired. I mean you'd have to be a real retarded (I can't believe someone as enlightened as you would even type such a word) douche to do something like that.

    As a skier she's amazing but some of her behavior has left me with a less than favorable opinion of her as a person, not just what I've read and I'll leave it at that.

    This is sad, indeed. She will risk her ability to walk just to maintain the limelight for a little while. I wish her the best, but fear the worst.

    Crazy. Especially considering that her "ACL" is not really an ACL, but rather a 10 inch piece of her hamstring tissue which the surgeon used for a graft. Her real ACL was shredded and removed. I guess if the graft tears completely, they just go back and do the surgery again.
