On This Day: Nancy Kerrigan Knee Assault

It was 17 years ago when Nancy Kerrigan was attacked after leaving the ice after a practice session.  It was later determined that the attack was planned by her competitor Tonya Harding.  One woman went on to become an Olympic medal winner, the other went on to star in trashy VH1 reality TV series.  Just sayin’.
