    Go Lindsey! I'm not sure how realistic her chances are at this point, but I hope she will make the most out of the situation!

    This is my first time watching downhill (well, second actually, I watched the men's downhill yesterday... or whatever day it was on, there are so many sports I don't even know what I'm watching anymore lol). The falls are scary

    Usually, when an athlete gets all that hype, I lose interest, but in this case, very delighted her and for Julie, too.

    Now the big decision: Who is the most beautiful American Athlete, Lindsey or Tanith?

    Well Lindsey's married so I guess we'll settle with Tanith!

    I agree and what a thrill to see our girls win Gold and Silver in the Downhill.

    I think I held my breath until Lindsey crossed the finish line.
    Congratulations Lindsey and Julie.

    Gosh I love the Downhill!

    Agree, can't believe how Anja could start today after her crash yesterday.

    Congrats Vonn, Mancuso and Goergel in downhill

    She's leading by just 0.33 seconds. Lindsey said her shins are really hurting her badly and doesn't think she can hold off Reisch who is propbably the best female slalom skier in the world. Slalom will take it's toll on Lindsey's shin. I hope her shin will get better for the Supre G and Giant Slalom.

    Well Lindsey didn't finish in slalom. :( Princess Julie got another silver while Maria Reisch won the gold. Guess it's Lindsey 1, Maria 1 with a few races to go.

    Congrats to Andrea Fischbach for winning the Super-G!



    Austrian Alpine Gold Medal - finally. I am in Austria at the moment, and you can't imagine what a drama the media here made about the "failure" of the Austrian Alpine Skiers up to now. The Alpine Skiers as well as the Ski Jumpers do get so much pressure here - it must be very, very hard to deliver under these circumstances.

    Finally, and Congrats to him. Partying and single sports just don't work.

    I really want to see Lindsey Vonn and Maria Reisch on the same Olympic podium. I think they'd enjoy it so much and it would be fun to watch.
