SESTRIERE, Italy Unbent, unbowed and ultimately unsuccessful, Bode Miller said in an interview yesterday he is skiing away from these Olympics on his own terms content without any medals and impressed by the local nightlife.
I just did it my way. Im not a martyr, and Im not a do-gooder. I just want to go out and rock. And man, I rocked here, Miller said in an exclusive interview with the Associated Press soon after he skidded off the slalom course in his fifth and final race, completing an 0-for-the-Olympics.

That's about what can be expected from the offspring of hippy parents who was raised without morals or any other kind of compass. He's a product of his upbringing.
What a maroon.
I expect to see old Bode in about 10 years, on "Cops". He'll be shoeless, in a trailer park, with a beer and a cigarette. As they take him away, in front of the wife and kids, she'll be yelling"I love you honey, I'll call the bail bondsman!"
Yes. But what about
the wiz-kid businessmen who
threw cash at Miller
and set up their firms
to make him a super star?
They weren't hippies . . .
Here's an editorial from a sports writer about Bode and his attitude during the games.
what a sorry punk.
There was a similar article to that in yesterday's Union Leader by a retired sports columnist. I wish it was on line as I would have posted that, too.
This kid lives about 20 miles from me. I'm almost embarrassed to admit it. He's too stupid to be ashamed.
Does anyone know how much of our tax dollars goes towards supporting losers like this?
I don't know too much about skiing but it didn't appear that he gave it his best effort, all things considered.
I don't mind if Budweiser or GM wants to throw money at him but just don't give him any of mine.
He certainly established himself as the biggest loser and goat in US Winter Olympic history.
Tanya Harding's soul mate: They're both iceholes.
Neither our country, nor his sponsors, sent him there to 'rock out' or 'party on an Olympic level' or to 'do it his way'.
It is no shame to leave the Olympics without a medal--most competitors do--but it IS indeed a horrid shame for him to leave with 'no regrets', considering what an uck-fup he is.
What is he, gay?
ICE should give this wastoid a full cavity search when he gets back to the States.
Here's another great column about how much fun he was to watch. Why? Well, because he had fun. Heaven forgive that he should actually TRY TO WIN, or at least be upset when he doesn't even do his best.
The title of the column is "Bode's No Role Model, But He's Fun to Watch". In the AZ Republic today. The title about says it all, but here's the link if you feel like wasting some time...
Ditto and I think his 15 minutes are down to the last 15 seconds.
NOW, I understand the term "snow bum"....
Bode is a living testament to the stupidity of allowing sports figures (and entertainers for that matter) to become "personalities" and "role models".
I don't think it will take 10 years..maybe half that time. He is a disgrace.
Words of wisdom from an old coach of mine (Staley Jackson): "Talent isn't enough. Talent is everywhere. Lots of people have talent. More than talent, it takes discipline and hard work hard to win." I never went very far in sports, but that advice has served me well for all my life. Bode Miller has an abundance of talent, no doubt, but he clearly lacks what else is needed to win. He should never have been placed on the team: if he's not going to the Olympics to win, he's only standing in a better man's way.
You are so right. See, the thing is if you want to be "larger than life" you have to party all night and then deliver in spite of it. You can't hack that, you're just a loser. If you want to "do it your way." First you have to do it. What a jerk.
