I figure that if I am going to give Jennifer Lopez a big bunch of crap about her foot injury, that I owe it to her to say congratulations if she muddled through her severe foot injury and managed to complete the Malibu Triathlon. There are not many competitors who could have shaken off an injury like that. Sure, she had to cancel the Project Runway finale, but hey, no one wanted to see her on that anyway, and she used that time to get in the training room and had a team of doctors working on her constantly just to get that foot in shape. Knowing she couldn't let her charities down or the money she was going to get for the cover shoots, Jennifer showed the gritty determination and fire that has made her a mediocre singer and actress and completed the triathlon in about two and a half hours. You know what? She was only 40 minutes behind Matt "I run and swim everyday of my life" McConaughey so that sounds pretty good. I mean he trains everyday. He's a man's man right? So, Jennifer, considering how the rest of your career has gone, you may want to consider a career in these. At the very least, the more you get outside, the more your husband might start looking less like a skeleton and more like a human that is actually still breathing.
Congratulations. Now, if you hadn't been an idiot and made your husband's birthday party in New York, thus having to charter a plane, you might have actually made a buck or two from all these cover articles.
