Bodie Says It Best Himself

Bode Miller's antics at the closing ceremonies appropriately encapsulate his performance better than any words ever could (h.t. Drudge).

I hope Coke didn't pay a ton for that endorsement.

What a complete jerk.

"What a complete jerk."

No doubt! The olympics went down more than a few notches when the rich and famous-- and professional, were allowed in the games. The best performances usually come from those who understand the meaning of "stay hungry".

The first olympic basketball Dream Team was, quite frankly, no contest. But each subsequent team struts onto the court with an attitude of"Entitlement". And they lose because of it.

These new "athletes" seem to care more about how much money they'll rake in than about representing their country.

As for Bode. He didn't care care about winning. Or anything else.

His blessings - 1000s of hours of training, world cup victories, championships won, all speak of a dedication to winning.

His sins - He missed an apex by 3" at 70 mph and lost an Olympic medal. Once upon a time he skiied hung over.

For his punishment he is pilloried by never-will-bes in MSM hacks and tag along MSM wannabees in the blagassphere.

And he's giving you the finger. I think I'll buy some Coca - Cola.

To Anon,

Better make that a Kool-Aid. Bode was very clearly out of shape and visibly winded after races. Bode did not take his training time at these Olympics seriously, and spent much time on the party scene.

Say what you will about his "almosts" but when the guy can't finish races, it says a ton to me about his dedication.

The Olympics aren't about bagging class because you had a hangover.
