As much as I hate to use the cliché “don’t count your chickens until they’re hatched,” it always rings true. X-Games women’s Moto racer, Meghan Rutledge, learned this lesson the hard way over the weekend reports Bleacher Report. Rutledge was leading and was on the verge of winning, so she naturally decided to celebrate with the customary fist pump. Unfortunately for her, the celebration caused her to crash, and she went on to win absolutely nothing.
I am giving Meghan a pass because she’s only 18, but this has to hurt. At least now we won’t expect her to prematurely celebrate anything again ever in life; or at least we hope she won’t.
