For Jacobellis It’s The heX Games

by The Editors on January 27, 2007

JacobellisIt’s the stuff of sports legends: the golfer who always misses the winning put, or the kicker who can’t hit field goals when a game is on the line. Now, add Lindsey Jacobellis to the list of hexed sports figures as the snowboardcross racer falls again, right before the finish line.

In an eerie repeat of her famous wipeout at the Olympics, Jacobellis crashed on the final jump and tumbled across the finish line behind gold medalist Joanie Anderson at the Winter X Games on Saturday.

Really? Hexed? Her three previous X Games Golds and multiple World Championships, Grand Prix wins and US National Championships don’t count? Just the last two races you actually watched, right?

Hahaha totally! The captioner is a fool! Nice work comparing Jacobellis to others who actually can’t pull through.
