Is Lindsey Vonn a victim of the Sports Illustrated cover jinx?
Don't act like it's some media-inspired phenomenon that only gets us through slow news days. Many athletes have been struck down by bad luck following their SI cover appearances; from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to Ryan Leaf, the jinx knows no boundaries.
But Vonn's Vancouver tale is still up in the air. Even though she admitted Wednesday that there's a chance she might not compete, there's still a chance she can ski and even win gold.
But what do you think? Are Vonn's Olympic aspirations cursed?
