Lindsey Vonn held her head up high and laughed at a joke Joel McHale made at the ESPY Awards earlier this week. McHale joked about Tiger Woods, with whom Lindsey Vonn recently ended a relationship. Woods is rumored to have cheated on Lindsey Vonn with Amanda Boyd--the ex-wife of fellow pro-golfer Jason Dufner.

"Many are calling Jordan Spieth the new Tiger Woods," McHale said of the 21-year-old golf sensation. "Which is great news for golf and terrible news for the future Mrs. Jordan Spieth."

The camera then panned the audience--lighting on Lindsey Vonn--who made faux sad eyes and laughed along with the audience. The audience was at first unsure how to handle the joke, but seeing Lindsey Vonn's reaction, erupted into full laughter instead of nervous laughter.

"Is uh, Lindsey behind me right now?" McHale asked as Lindsey Vonn shyly lowered her head in response to the laughter. "She wasn't married to him! Is she mad?"

Lindsey Vonn looked sexier than ever at the ESPYs in a tight red dress.

Vonn and Tiger Woods announced their "mutual" split back in May. Many wonder if she got out while the getting was good, as Woods reportedly relapsed in the sex addiction area--allegedly the same way he did while married to Elin Nordegren. He was allegedly seeing Amanda Boyd for months prior to his split from Lindsey Vonn.

Did you catch Joel McHale's joke about Tiger Woods at the ESPY Awards earlier this week? Do you think it was too soon for that kind of joke or was he spot-on with his timing?

And don't you think Lindsey Vonn handled the situation like a champ? She is, of course, a champ on the slopes. Now she qualifies for a gold medal in social sort-of humiliation as well.
