14. Doesn't feel very good to finish behind someone who fell down, does it?

For the record, I certainly understand WHY you'd be pissed about it. But you didn't seem to mind getting on the Olympic team ahead of someone though you'd fallen down yourself -- twice! YOU should have been the alternate, and I'm sorry to say that I think you skated like one: while I agree that your score should have been higher, I think the Japanese skater was better even with her fall.

I wouldn't have minded all your media hype and endorsements if you hadn't been such a legend in your own mind. And I would tell you "better luck next Olympics" -- but thanks to your profane "ugly American" sore loser reaction, you can forget about the judges cutting you any slack on your scores ever again.

You've made fools of those who inundated you with the hype and endorsements that Gracie Gold was better qualified for. And now you're on record as being unable to out-skate someone who fell down.

You reaped exactly what you sowed, Miss Tim Tebow On Skates.
