Spoiler: Men's Slalom

Ted Liggety Missed a gate and DSQ.

Bode Miller missed a gate seconds into his first run and DSQ

In an interview following the race Bill Marolt, president and chief executive officer of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, said he would have "a heart-to-heart" talk with Miller at the end of this season regarding his desire to continue to compete on the team.

Marlot was asked to respond to Miller's assesment following the Slalom that "My preparation for the Olympics certainly could have been different, but I'm not a guy who looks back". It was brought up that Bode seemed to spend more time in the nightclubs in Torino than he did training and preparing for the individual events. Some are questioning if Bode still has a desire to continue to compete."I don't believe we should have conversations like this in the media," said Marolt "But clearly it is something we need to address at year's end, and I don't know where that will go right now."

I sense a "YOU'RE FIRED", "NO, I QUIT", "NO, YOU'RE FIRED", "NO, I QUIT" debate approaching. (participants; Bode and the USST)

I sense from the interview with Marlot that he isn't dissapointed about the lack of medals but perhaps a perceived lack of desire on Bode's part. He insinuated as much by saying "in this sport you need a fiery desire to win and compete at this level. Simply relying on skill will not always get you where you should be when the playing field has leveled"

You are assuming Bode shows up for the meeting.

Paul, I think you had the first fun results there. And Ted was DSQ'd, not a DNF. Yuki has it right.

Edit: never mind, Paul, I see you already caught that.

Exactly, Paul.

I was hoping Ted could come through. Fitting end, though, to a lack luster Olympics for the US alpine team in regard to results. That's sports, though. Sometimes the stars (terrestrial bodies) just skew a bit out of alignment. For that matter, sometimes so do the stars.
