    Re: Hate for lolo?

    In Iowa anyways it seems she gets a fair bit of media coverage for never having really done anything of consequence as far as I can tell. I don't know if it's like that in the rest of the country or not.

    Don't know why anyone would hold that against her, she doesn't control the media.

    This is a good follow-up story.

    What Did Lolo Jones Ever Do To The New York Times?


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    she brings most of it upon herself with her twitter account where she openly complains about being single and having problems finding dates, pretty much asking guys to beg her on twitter to go out with her

    I'll take 100 Lolo's over one Shawn Johnson. If people don't like her story than don't print it.

    Hell, I'd take her out. Maybe I need to sign up for Twitter now.

    Why would you say that? Has Shawn had sex? Some people think Lolo has used her virginity as a way to stay relevant. Which if true then she's a whore in other ways. I think that's what the writer seems to have a beef about.

    Don't know why anyone would hold that against her, she doesn't control the media.
    She won three NCAA titles and is 11 All-American while at LSU.
    She won indoor US national titles in 2007, 2008 and 2009 in the 60 m hurdles.
    Won gold medals at the World Indoor Championship in 2008 and 2010.
    She is the American record holder in the 60m hurdles.
    She is a 2 time Olympic qualifier and was the world leader and favorite in 2008.
    Has struggled with injuries since.

    "never having really done anything of consequence"

    Does not apply here.

    Re: Hate for lolo?

    Bottom line is that if she was ugly she would still be at the Olympics because she earned her way there by her performance on the track. Sure she has fallen on her face in the Olympics, but she is not the first to do that, just the best looking woman to do so. I also like how someone in the media is saying that the media is paying more attention to her than it should.

    For what it is worth the author of the article is a man. I figured it was a woman also just from the tone, so I looked him up.
