Cohen means can't

Sasha Cohen fell again:

After a silver medal at the Turin Olympics, a pair of runner-up results at the worlds and four second place finishes at the U.S. championships, Cohen had finally looked poised to shed her unwanted tag of figure skating's perennial bridesmaid and make the final step to the top of the podium.

First among the last group to skate, Cohen got her routine to Romeo and Juliet off to an unsteady start and never found her rhythm and confidence.

Shaky on almost every jump, Cohen crashed to the ice on her final triple Salchow and then as the music finished stood dejectedly at center ice, head bowed knowing she had let another gold medal get away.

Poor kid. Some people just won't let themselves succeed.
