No surprise that Phil met Mikaela in the cafeteria....he's actually similing at the thought of lunch!

Phil's excited because Mikaela introduced him to her binding tech. That'll lead to Ligety's...Lindsey's...  So there you go.

Maybe he'll send Rossi Smash a snapchat photo with the bindings.

There is a new thread about Lindsey Here

Shall we split off this discussion to merge with that thread? 

 

Edit, Moved posts to the thread specifically about her injury.

Yes, I think the Lindsey crash stuff should all be moved to one thread.

With Lindsey Vonn out, it looks like they're working on filling her spot.   Who's going to fill it?

It will go to someone based on the criteria already established by the US Ski Team. Two top-3 finishes was essentially your golden ticket. Then they look at top 5 and 10 finishes. And then World Cup points.
