"My quality of life is the priority. I wanted to have fun here, to enjoy the Olympic experience, not be holed up in a closet and not ever leave your room. People said, 'Why can't you stay in for the two weeks, three weeks? You've got the rest of your life to experience the games the way everybody else does.' But I like the whole package. I always have."
Olympic medal-less Bode Miller
Between the excruciatingly self-absorbed Bode Miller, the miscalculating show-boarder (not a typo) Lindsey Jacobellis and the Hedrick-Davis speedskating skirmish, the USA doesn't look real sharp in the 2006 Winter Olympics, but we'd sweep all the gold medals in the 2006 Slacker Games. I guess being an Olympian just doesn't have the same cachet as it once did. Maybe Generation X-Games just wasn't intended for the world stage.
