Damn it, I'm gonna be having a few cocktails watching belly dancers, whilst eating fillafil, and smoking a middle eastern apple-tobbaco packed water pipe!

Bode chatted with Leno

- WC v. Olympics: Bode make Leno laugh with a comment that the Olympics aare a compressed moment of excitement (paraphrased) whereas WC takes all season - full tour

- Leno asked Bode if he would compete in the '06 Olympics and Bode was noncommittal

- Leno asked Bode about winning the WC. Bode says he's not really a trophy guy - but the WC trophy was really something special and he hand carried it the whole way home. In DC, United made him check the trophy because it was a really small plane. The trophy was totally crushed, smashed into pieces. So, he will get a replacement but "it's not the same".

- Leno asked Bode about his mobile home and Bode commented the Ralves one-upped him with Madonna's old tour bus.

Bode is a humble dood - but there is something there. I think he personifies "still waters run deep".

Leno blew the interview, IMHO. He should have asked what it feels like to stand in the start hut at the Hahnenkamm, knowing the history of broken bodies that have been hauled off its slopes, or what is going through his mind approaching a tough turn or jump. I guess superficial stuff is all we can expect from Jay, but then he should have at least asked about the European girls. It just shows that if it's not basketball or baseball it's not on the radar screen.

Jay did ask something to the effect of "Well what about the girls, Is there such a thing as ski groupies?"

To which Bode replied sheepishly something like, "Not that I know of. If there are, somebody PLEASE tell me."

And then the convo went on to the fact that he doesn't stay in hotels and has a motorhome/camper that looks kind of doofus, so that doesn't probably help him with the chicks, and then Ralves one upped him w/ Madonna's cool looking tourbus and parked it right next to his camper, so there went any chances he had.

I wanted to hear more about the skiing, but I guess both Jay and Bode know the viewing audiance better than I do.
post #14 of 17
What killed me, was that Jay didn't even know there WAS a WC of skiing!

Bode is definitely all there, and quite humble. I got the impression he was a lot more PO'd about the globe being "in 9000 peices" than he let on. He said they would get him a new one, but "it's not the same". I liked the idea of putting the shattered pieces of the original inside of the replacement.

: No doubt a homeland security issue. Bode could have been planing on smashing the globe and using the pieces as carpet knives.
post #16 of 17
Jay doesn't know squat. Bode's an imposing guy though, maybe he flustered him.
post #17 of 17
I'm a huge Bode fan

but dude, who would bring that trophy on a plane?

i mean honestly, i won't even check my ski boots, much less a priceless crystal trophy.
