Lindsey Vonn (redacted)

Following up a post from yesterday.

Lindsey Vonn may have won a medal today… or she may have skied off the course. MPR announced the story on its news station and, we’re told, there were immediately four complaints.

And now the news.

Lindsey Vonn is “Vail’s Lindsey Vonn,” according to the newspaper there.

Meanwhile, Vonn must be a superstar. She’s getting “the treatment” from no less than The Onion.


Childhood: Grew up in Minnesota, so there is a good chance she is a joyless judgmental jerk behind her smiling facade

Preferred Hill Direction: Down

Ideal Knee Position: Slightly Bent

Worst Knee Position: Frayed tendons hanging from nearby sapling

Marital Status: Wed fellow skier Thomas Vonn in an outdoor ceremony presided over by a snowman dressed as Parson Brown

Here’s today’s Fresh Eye on the Radio with The Current’s Mary Lucia, and a sample of what a story sounds like when we don’t want to spoil anything by telling you the news.
