Julia Mancuso, a champion US Olympic skier, got shit for posting a video of her throwing her one-year-old son, the aptly named Sonny, into deep snow. In the clip Julia flings her bundled-up toddler into the air, he disappears into the snow bank, and she fishes him out immediately. Sonny seems totally unbothered, but some commenters, mainly other mommas, were concerned that this stunt was dangerous.
I’m going to preface all this by saying that I love skiing, grew up skiing, still ski and so therefore know full well that one small mistake can result in a serious injury. Having said that, when God gives you a story that writes its own cheap coke jokes, you take it.
