Lindsey Vonn's thumb injury puts her season in doubt

Vonn, who won Monday's downhill, said today that the condition of the thumb -- which she cut while opening a Champagne bottle Monday at a victory party -- could compromise the rest of her season.
Speaking about the party, Vonn said what "was supposed to be a wonderful night turned into total chaos.''
