Well it's either hate fest or molesting each other, I guess shut up and act isn't enough for them.

You know who thinks Trump is some kind of god? No one except the mythical "alt right conservative" boggyman liberals see outside of their echo chamber.

She is, after all, eligible for the Masters World Cup, yes?

(I bet that Tiger can probably share some other cool x rated stories from that era with her as well. ).

& newsflash: as great as you guys were, you both kind of sucked on the biggest team events in your sport - the Olympics and Ryder Cup - which identifies your character more than your individual wins do.


Advice to new Olympians and Athletes: Skiers should ski..period. Football players should block and tackle, period.

& all athletes (& entertainers) should deflect ALL political questions like that Swift Girl has......& just keep their damn pie hole shut.

Trump is not the problem...its the WHOLE govt. I hope she does take a knee if she wins. Imo representing or in anyway supporting a tyrannical Govt is not exactly patriotic.

Take a Knee. Ha!

Socialist snowflakes taking turns (due to their lack of strategic/historical knowledge & their constant wrong take on current events) being ironic & idiotic when pontificating. & the talented ones achieve both in the same sentence.

I know that the conversations that take place at the little card table over in the corner during family holidays never ceases to entertain & amaze.

Take a Knee indeed.

Just saw the replay of her most recent downhill run. She managed to injure herself in what appeared to be a routine, if mediocre, trip down the course.

Itís looking like the last thing Lindsey Vonn needs to worry about is ďrepresenting TrumpĒ in a medal ceremony, unless they award medals for 23rd place nowadays.

If she really wanted to make a statement, she'd not participate at all, but I am sure her ego wouldn't allow that. Her protest is hollow.. trying to make a statement with nothing behind it accomplishes nothing, means nothing.
