I don’t even like Bode Miller that much (you and Andy Roddick should go to American Athlete Attitude Adjustment Seminars) but boy, you better believe I was flinging the blanket off my lap and leaping to my feet when he won his medals. Go Bode. You proved us wrong. Now go be your mysterious self and refuse to do any post-run interviews- that’s why we love ya’ bud. Just not as much as Aksel-Lund Svindal- good grief you are handsome Aksel.
I loved every ‘Yes! America is still leading the medal tally!’ minute of these winter games. I especially loved New York Magazine’s article; It’s All About How You Win, found here: http://nymag.com/daily/sports/2010/02/its_all_about_how_you_win.html
Tough break for Team USA in the men’s hockey final (star-spangled tears welling up in my eyes), although, can I just say- good grief Crosby; you’re 22 and a Canadian hero now.
Only 879 more days until the Summer Games in London. Go Phelps!
