Perfect! Thanks Moll!

And in the immortal words of Sonny and Cher....

And the beat[ing] goes on



P.S. - I do think he just took Nike's money and said "screw them" and did as he wished. I do think he's happy with himself, and No, Bob P, he isn't a giant disappointment to ALL his fans. I can say that since I was a fan and still am. If, when my boy is 28, he's an exact duplicate of Bode, I wouldn't be unhappy with him. It could be worse, he could be a duplicate of Bill Clinton or W or any other of a host of characters.

That's HILARIOUS. Because my perception is the exact opposite.

Pro-Bode folks (or anyone who dare remain semi- or completely neutral) apparently don't get it, want their kids to have bad role models, are naive in their belief than anyonce could really be nonconformist or care about all that money.

Too personal on all sides, if you ask me, not just on one.

and your comments are not about Bode personally?

you just don't get it do you?

how about this: shut the ****** up about what Bode should or shouldn't do. it's not your business. I have attacked you and others and defended Mr Miller because you maroons are trying to dictate what he should or shouldn't do. it's simply not your place. it's danged arrogant to believe it IS your place.

so shut up already.

if you hadn't guessed, I get quite angry when people try to control other people. or express a desire to do so. I haven't seen Bode commenting on what segbrown ought to do. eh?

Ummm, UC?

Is the needle of your personal irony meter bouncing just a little here?

It should be if it's not.

My interpretation would be that your comments are seeking to "control" Segbrown. Just a thought.

You know, UC, I kind of agree with you on this one. Not that people are trying to control Bode, but his life is not our business. You seem to be taking this very personally...

Oh darn, Bob beat me to it. This has however brought me to wonder if anyone has ever noticed that we become most incensed when we see others engaging in behaviors which remind us of what we like the least about ourselves.

I like Bode

I like Bode.

I don't like dogma....clearly neither does Bode.

He ski'd his arse off in the DH - .11 off the podium. Techs get the ski's right he gets bronze or silver. No one was beating Deneriaz that day....fast ski's, homefield advantage(lives 80 miles away) and ski'd the race of his life.

Did anyone really expect 5 medals out of Bode? NBC/ Time magazine hype IMO. I thought he had a good shot at DH and super G...otherwise the Austrians were strong...no chance in slalom with Palander, Rocca and the austrians...zero.

So techs don't screw up the ski's, he medals in DH and all this crap goes away....

I fully expect Bode will retire to his organic vegetable farm and be happier than most here who are ragging on him.

My .02 - Could be wrong.

BTW, probably a fair chance he's reading this thread....I hope he is laughing his arse off...

Ugh, this thread was supposed to be a parody and die off after a few posts. Enough is enough already.

So Luc Alphand walks into a bar, and asks for the regular, and the bartender says, "Who are you again?"

So he sits down with Peter Luscher.

This has been a Public Service Announcement. Be forewarned that huckingfellers has threatened in PMs to "kill me".
Hey huckingfellers, Do you need some help? I'll bring the duct tape.

I watched as much skiing done by Bode as possible, for the Olympics. I wanted him to win us all kinds of medals, so I was disappointed when he didn't.

It's a common thing for the top guy/gal who is supposed to win, to have a lot of expectations from all sorts of people. I guess that causes much pressure, which is difficult for one to deal with, especially in competition.

Bode is just a person. I like the way he is (what I have seen of him). He is somewhat different, and I find that refreshing.

I don't find the need to beat him up beacause of the way he is, or because he didn't win at the Olympics. This doesn't make me perfect, however... I hate Michelle Kwan for pulling out!! I'm very emotional about it. So, different things upset different people, I guess.

I think Uncle Crud must be really, really smart. Maybe like and egghead. Or possibly an Idiot Savant. That would explain his complete lack of logic AND comprehension.

Now that's an ENTIRELY different matter! I have some very strong feelings on that as well!

Ori, you too are spun.

Bode isn't "cultivating an image".

His entire life is counter to the mainstream. No conscious "cultivation" and surely nothing false about it.

Really??? Posing on the cover of all those magazines with a scowl on your face with a big Nike logo on your chest (see Outside magazine) isn't cultivating a contradictory image? The Bode commercial of him training really hard in a barn jumping over logs with Nike sneakers, while in reality he isn't training really hard, rather really living the life of a rock star in the Sestriere nightlife. Isn't that cultivating a contradictory image? If you aren't going to work hard, then simply don't allow yourself to be filmed training as if you do work hard. If that isn't false, I may have to check my idea of reality at the door. Lastly, If you think that anyone that pushes endorsements doesn't have an agenda-whether it be fiscal or image enhancing or otherwise-then sorry Uncle, you are the one that is spun.
Ori G. Don't bother. Uncle Fester is so far out there that there is no hope. Just read his other posts in this thread and others. The guy is completely devoid of any common logic or comprehension of subject matter. I'd be surprised if he scored over 150 in the reading comprehension on his SATs

why not reveal whom you really are, 7-post newbie?
So you disparage someone as a newbie because they only have 7 posts? So that invalidates their opinions and views, in your eyes? CAN EVERYONE SEE WAS A CLUELESS MESS THIS GUY IS? I can only imagine that you are an epicski employee who is paid to post completely logicless posts just so people will be dumbfounded enough to keep retorting to your COMPLETELY INANE crap.

it's sad being a has-been at 42, eh f-uckingheller?

why don't you go kill more "terrorists" who are nothing more than citizens protecting their country, "ranger" coprophage.
It's official. Uncle Fester has lost his mind (what's left of it, anyway).

Please keep your mouth shut, since you have not seen any of the threads in the lounge, where gonz/crud displays how brilliant he really is. He may favor invective at times, but do not doubt the man's intelligence. You have zero credibilty to toss around such insults. It is not that having a low post does not allow you to express opinion, it is that you do not know us, and do not have anything resembling 5% of the picture of who we are.

So please, try listening more than speaking. It will make you more friends than your current course of action is likely to. If you are lucky enough to gain gonz/crud's respect, he is invaluable as someone to talk to.

I need blood pressure medicine everytime I read one of your ridiculous posts!

Are you a complete maroon (whatever the fu*k that is)? Nobody is trying to dictate what Bode should or shouldn't do. This is a freaking forum, and we are discussing his actions and attitude. Just as people have a right to discuss Madonna's, Britney Spear's, Barry Bond's, whoever's actions and attitudes, without having one microgram of desire to change or influence any one of them.

Oy, why am I wasting my time. I'm sure you'll read this, and it will go completely over your head, and you'll respond with something like, "Why are you trying to live your life through Bode, and why do burritos cost 25 rubles in China."
