Bode Miller is a douchebag.

I'm a Bode supporter amd I love how public opinion has turned against him based on the 60 minutes interview. The guy does things his own way, making him a douchebag. Outstanding.

Bode drank the night he won the World Cup and then raced the next day?? Oh no!!! It's no different than any weekend skier kicking back some drinks at the summit lodge and then going out there and making runs with all the other skiers.

For all I know, the alcohol and pot might improve Bode's performance.

Il Pomodoro Volante is adorable. The Halfpipe competition was certainly fun to watch. Short Track speed skating was also fun. I was happy for the Koreans after what happened 4 years ago.

I will also chime in with hatred of the NBC coverage of the Olympics. But, what else is new? I must say though, I do love some of their camera angles. You could actually see how steep and scary the Downhill course was *shudder*

As for the Bode and Rahlves, I agree they didn't ski badly. As for the drinking, it takes a certain kind of personality to be able to do what they do, so it really doesn't surprise me when he says he goes out drinking. He was probably drinking with fellow downhillers.

So is Apollo Anton Yoko Ohno the most overhyped, underachieving American winter olympian ever?

No, I don't think a skiier necessarily has to live exactly like a monk.

No, the guy is a pretentious egotistical prick, that's why he's a douchebag.

True. The guy is obviously full of himself, and monks are supposed to be humble.

Actually, this is a good example of how US coverage of the Olympics turns off most international viewers.

The US media will essentially hand out the medals before the events through its coverage, and then focus on the sob story of how an individual failed to get the medal.

CBC & TSN provide great coverage together for us in Canada.
