My heart goes out to Lindsey Vonn

Just as it would for any Olympian suffering such a major injury, but is there a reason they have to keep showing her land on and break her leg over and over and over on the news?

  • Joe Theismann's was worse. Ewww - But yeah, I do feel bad for her. Hopefully they put up a warning before showing it, in case kids are watching. Give it a day or 2 tho, & they'll move on. :/

    DS handled it in typical 9yo fashion, by yelling OHHHHH That's gotta hurt! at the tv

  • I haven't been watching the news. I remember when the news had to constantly show use that horrible luge accident during the 2010 Olympics. Ugh.

  • I typically have a strong stomach/tolerance for gruesome scenes, but there is just something about broken bones that makes me cringe. I hate when they keep replaying them.
