Aww, Okay: Lindsey Vonn FTW!

Hey, Lindsey Vonn won a gold in women's downhill! Even I, who dislikes both sports and winning, sort of admire this.

Hey, some folks actually think that even one gold is gonna put her in Michael Phelps Endorsement Money territory (or so told me Kristen Shaughnessy & her obnoxious French manicure on NY1), so good on 'er!

Ha ha ha. what are you, FROM THE FUTURE?! This will not be true until it happens tonight on NBC. Way to blow everyone warm fuzzy, spaceman!

You are literally some kind of fortune teller.

Disliking winning? That's the most dispiriting thing i've heard all week.

What the HELL. This is basic. I work pretty hard to stay ignorant of tape-delayed Olympic results (and willingly suspend my disbelief); I already had the Men's downhill spoiled by the NYTimes damn news alert email, so now I can't check them in the afternoons anymore.

Could the Awl hold off on its coverage until results are broadcast in the US? I'd rather not abstain from your kitten videos and knifecrime coverage for the next 2 weeks, but I'd rather do that than have my wintertime joy killed.

I think you should subscribe for Sunday delivery of the internet. This "on-line" shit is really messing with your lifestyle.

Dude did you see those spills? WTF. LV won the biggest gold I've ever seen.

They were getting chewed up and spit off that mountain! That one girl's ski got snapped in half. I've never seen that ever, ever!

I assumed they edited to show 1) everyone that wiped-out and 2) the USAmericans.

I love this! She screwed up her leg, wrapped it in cheese and won a GOLD MEDAL! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!

So, anyone want to make bets on who will portray her in the made for TV featurette on her? My money is on Jewel!

Well, Choire, you ARE a fan of unbridled joy, and that's exactly what was on her face when she found out she was in first after her run. THAT LOOK is why I love the Olympics, like a cheesy, weepy nerdface! I get sudden and overwhelming crocodile tear-style patriotism! USA! USA!

Even I, who dislikes both sports and winning

So, you're a Mets fan, eh?

David Cho (#3)

Hahah, he will not get that joke.

I'll do you one better: I dislike winning, sports, and women!

(Not so hot on hills and the going down thereupon, either.)

Johnny Weir should have been pimping his ass on SI.

He should try winning a damn medal first.
