Thread: Olympian leaves gold medal on plane

    Default Olympian leaves gold medal on plane

    Not a big story but the following quote jumped out at me:

    ?It was 100 times worse than losing my wallet,? Hansen, 27, said. ?It might be up there with losing a kid.?

    I don't know one way or the other, but I'm guessing he doesn't actually have any kids. No way it's even close.

    I have had two or three times when my kids were little that I turned around and one of them wasn't there. Never for very long, but it is one of the sickest feelings I have ever had. Absolute panic time.

    Yeah, but have you ever misplaced a gold medal?

    You can always make more kids, but think how hard it would be to win another gold medal.

    No, but one night (or, rather, early morning) I misplaced my car.

    I've misplaced my dignity once or twice.

    3-4 years ago, late to get the Christmas shopping done,went to the mall on the Eve. It was dark, it was raining and after 30 minutes of driving around trying to find a space, parked the car. To compound it, had a really bad day at work and keep thinking about it, trying to solve an issue. I spend 2-3 hours in the mall and come out to dark and pouring rain.

    Walked out of the doors and could not remember where I had parked. I mean after 20 minutes, I could not figure it out. I tried to remember where I went in, I couldn't. Total blank. I tried to back track buying looking at what I had purchased. NG. Total blackout.

    So I flagged down a security car and explained. "Hop in the back seat" - 2 other men are in there, same problem. The 4 of us busted out laughing. The guy drove us up and down the rows, 3 arms hanging out the window clicking the car remote trying to trigger parking lights on the cars.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I too lost my car...
    I was at the Pride Fighting Event in Vegas and parked my car next to a special roped off area. Went to the event and came out looking for my car-it was not next to the roped off section that I left it. I started to freak out and security accused me of being ddrunk, I explained to them that i had not had anything to drink and that my car was parked right next to the ropes. After arguing with security for 30+ minutes, the head of secruity came over and started laughing at me. I almost exploded, then he told me that they moved the roped off area to expand it because of all the VIP parking that was needed. My car was put into the VIP parking area by way of moving the ropes not the car, and that I was not allowed to go in that area to look for my car. I calmed down and started to laugh. Turned out that Quinton Jackson parked his fancy sports car next to my car and was getting in when I arrived at my car. We got to meet him and he gave us VIP tickets to an after party that he was attending.
    Best time of thinking my car was stolen that I ever had.
