Lindsey Vonn Is Pulling A Shawn Johnson

Every day that I see Lindsey Vonn in another commercial or trying to look sexy in an ad in a magazine I am reminded of Shawn Johnson. Shawn was supposed to come back from injury and compete in the London Olympics. Instead she waited until the last possible second and said she wasn't going to compete but was headed to Dancing With The Stars. During the run up to the Olympics she made tons of commercials and appearances and was in a tremendous number of ads for all the companies that paid all that money. She gave them their money's worth before the Olympics. She had to keep up the facade that she was going to compete or people would have tuned her out. Lindsey is in the same position. She is in everything and the story is whether she will compete so people are fascinated and will keep up their interest and won't turn away when we see her in three consecutive ads during a football game or are subjected to another pictorial where she flashes a bra or tries to look sexy. Emphasis on tries. Is she going to be ready to compete? I don't think so but I bet we won't find out until the last possible second and she ends up on Dancing With The Stars.

And I thought it was a torn knee that made Shawn Johnson realize she can't compete well enough for the Olympics.

Ya but isn't the whole point of selling out the getting paid part?

Completely uninteresting.

She had plenty of time to come back from the acl. She was going around giving all these interviews that she was training hard for
London but gabby gave an interview saying that Shawn hasn't been in the gym for a month and she didn't know if Shawn was coming back or not. Shawn did great at pacrims but that's a b squad meet. Shawn knew she had no chance to make the London team. Even 2008 Shawn would have had a tough fight at trials.

Wait, wasn't Shawn at the Olympic trials and made an effort, but didn't make the team?

No one would give a crap about Lindsey Vonn if she weren't dating Tiger Woods… seems to me like just another fame whore.

So not true, Malfunction Junction. Lindsay Vonn is an awesome skier, totally balls out all the way. She has a tonne of guts. Nobody in the gossip world cared about her until she started dating Tiger Woods, though. She always did the cheesecake photos, makes it easier to be underestimated when people think you are nothin but a pretty face.
