We've had almost a year now of gawking at the Tiger Woods-Lindsey Vonn super couple, but the public sightings have almost always occurred on the golf course or at a golf-related event. We had yet to see or hear of Tiger out of his element and on the slopes with his gold medal-winning girlfriend ... until this week, allegedly.
Several citizen journalists purportedly spotted the couple in Breckenridge on Wednesday. Greg Ferraro of NBCOlympics.com diligently compiled the witness accounts of sports' No. 1 power couple, including an intense shot of the two stopping for a snack. Sarah Schleper, a former Olympian and Vonn's teammate, ignited the reports by tweeting this supposed picture of the two on the slopes:
