Ah, the Winter Olympics 2006. If there isn't a discussion about Johnny Weir's outlandishness/likeability/camel toe, it's about Bode Miller's drinking/attitude/aloofness. Well, point Miller, this time around.

Once again, Miller fails mightily at his attempt to conduct himself as an Olympic athlete who actually gives a hearty Torino pasta shit about the events, his role or, well, anything for that matter:

"It is other people who want me to win medals," Miller said in an interview with Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper on Thursday.

"The silver medals I won in Salt Lake City didn't give me anything. Last year I set myself the goal of winning the World Cup and lining up a long series of wins. It was my private challenge.

"This year I just want to enjoy myself. I could give up tomorrow without having the slightest regret. I could keep away from this world for a year and then perhaps start to feel the desire to prove something to myself again."

Spoken like a true champion. By the way, that bottle in Bode's hand is not beer, but "Bryant Gumbel Juice".
