The Carolina Panthers have two guys currently on the roster still struggling to return from ACLs that were torn two years ago, then you have a guy like Adrian Peterson who completely destroys his knee and he's back better than ever 8 months later. Just doesn't make sense.

If she needs someone to rub cocoa butter on her scars, I am the guy for the job!

My wife had a tibial plateau fracture last year but luckily avoided any ligament damage. Sucks too because it was only her third day ever on a board and now, after the injury, she is scared to get hurt.

Best wishes to Lindsey Vonn though, hope her recovery goes as well as it can.

I think it's safe to say none of this would have happened if she was a snowboarder.

Ironic considering the post directly above yours.

She is an Uber athlete. So if anyone can recover in time for the Olympics it's her. Still, it is going to be a tall order, and it'll be very tough for her to be peaking at that time. Which is a super bummer.

Tiger has her covered. It will be a fairytale wedding followed by Gold at the Olympics.

Tiger's probably got the nurse bent over Lindsey's bed doggy style right now while she's in a drug induced stupor.
