Bode Miller Sucks Rocks

Sunday, Feb. 26, 2006 1:40 AM

Bode Miller sucks rocks.

Just ask Bode Miller.

Miller, the Olympic skier whose mouth runs faster than his brain, admitted that he had spent less time preparing for the challenges of Turin than he had spent in 2002 and the games in Salt Lake City, where he won two silver medals.

What he did spend time on was running his mouth, including controversial interviews where he admitted to skiing while drunk and accusing athletes like Lance Armstrong of using performance-enhancing drugs.

"I've been living my life as if I might have died two weeks before the Olympics started," Miller said. "That left me the opportunity to dig deep, to go down that other route, to make more sacrifices and get back to where I was."

Whatever that means. Miller's Olympic experience ended 0-for-5 in the medal department, with a disappointing performance in the men's downhill, followed by a disqualification, a no-finish, and sixth place. In his last event, he disqualified in 15 seconds, veering off the slalom course.

Miller was more enthused about the bar scene at Sestriere's than his performance.

"I like the whole package. I always have," he said in an exclusive interview with Associated Press.

Unfortunately, that package won't be a box of Wheaties featuring a proud, medal-bedecked champion named Bode Miller.
