Meghan Rutledge was just one corner away from winning a motor-cross gold medal at the X-Games on Sunday. With a comfortable lead all she needed to do was land one last jump and get around one last corner. A mere formality for someone of her talent. She had it in the bag. Hell, why wouldn’t she indulge in a celebratory fist-pump as she and her bike soared 40 feet up in the air?
Because she might screw up the landing, crash and lose the race, that’s why. Which is exactly what happened. So instead of winning a gold medal she illustrated a valuable lesson to us all. If you get too cocky God will punish you by stealing away your dreams and humiliating you in front of the world. That’s just the kind of guy he is. Or maybe it’s the one about not counting your chickens. Whatever the lesson, this is worth a look. The kids would call this an ‘Epic Fail’. Mainly because their brains aren’t fully developed yet.
Also if you like seeing girls cry then watch the video until the end. Weirdo.
