Lolo Jones wipes out in bobsled, thanks God for not mashing her face

It actually kind of annoys me when people thank God for “sparing” them from serious injury or death in an accident. If He does play favorites, then what about all the people who actually perish?

I know, I know: God moves in mysterious ways. Sounds like a cop-out to me, but Lolo Jones obviously does not agree. Ms. Jones, famed Olympic hurdler and pretty easy on the eyes, was involved in a bobsled accident on Monday during a practice run for this weekend’s World Cup event in Winterberg, Germany. Jones and driver Elana Meyers were not hurt.

Jones took to Twitter to report on the aftermath:





Of course this could just be Jones’ way of saying Whew!, and as usual I’m reading too much into it. Crashing a bobsled must be pretty terrifying business, regardless of the outcome. So I’m happy she’s OK, and to her I say, happy sledding.

    She is a nice person. I’m glad she’s OK, too. Stop being a nice person hater.
