Any other old guys like me notice how some of our 'Olympians' talk just like the hippies of the 1960's? Anyone listening, or who can stand listening, to Bode Miller (for ex) and hear his drivel about how he drinks, lives for the moment, "Yeah, man, its like ok and cool to lose, man!" -- he sounds just like a goddamn hippie.
Then, the snowboarder girl, Lindsyellis, or wtf her name was, sounds just like a stoner from Haight-Ashbury!
I don't think of athletes in this way. It boggles my mind to think of these people representing our country. These hippie-bums are the best America can offer? Pathetic.
I know there are other fine athletes, but sheeshh...enough with the loser-hippies.
