“Skiing is hard”

Those following the Olympics live (and not relying on NBC’s primetime coverage) know that one of the favorites in the downhill — and the USA’s only real hope to medal in that event — did not do too well.

After leading in almost every practice session, Bode Miller made one big mistake that crashed him into a gate, killed his speed and removed all hope for a medal.

I love his tweet from earlier today:

He was gracious in congratulating the winners and short and to the point in his defeat.

He has a chance for another medal later in the Games, and I hope he gets it.
