Ow, my groin!

I wouldn't say that groin injuries are a good thing, but if anyone had to suffer one, I'm not displeased that it was Michelle Kwan. I can certainly understand why she wanted to force herself onto the U.S. Olympic team despite having missed the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, but for Pete's sake, she's already got two Olympics medals, not to mention the multiple U.S. and World Championship titles.

So now Emily Hughes, who should have been on the team in the first place, will have a chance to compete in the Olympics — assuming she can get there. She's at home in Great Neck, and all the New York airports are closed because of the snowstorm, so she has no way to get to Italy. She's got plenty of time — the ladies' competition doesn't start until the 21st — but still, there's no good reason that she wasn't already there.
