“It’s all downhill from here…”
“Markets now frozen solid…”

Of course Bode could give a crap about the suits as he is more directly involved:
Defending overall champion Bode Miller clocked the fastest time in Tuesday’s opening training session for the men’s World Cup downhill at Beaver Creek, Colo.
Miller, a two-time winner at Beaver Creek, negotiated the notorious Birds of Prey course in one minute 42.82 seconds.
“I skied normal today,” Miller said. “This is one of my favorite hills.”“It is a pleasure to ski it any time. That is why it is hard for me to back off and ski really conservative on a day like today, when you never know how many times you’re going to get to run this hill … I try to get the most out of this hill.” [as do we all Bode ]
