i turned it off moments after i saw his score. Didnt see that, but i doubt they will be to harsh on him. he is literally a hero for a couple generations worth of kids. back in the day i wasnt a huge sean white fan but he has really grown on me over the years with his dedication.
Oh my God. I said the exact same thing! As a military brat i know how you don’t let the flag touch the ground like that or drag it behind you like a baby blanket! I was so glad when someone must have taken it from him before he gave the interview. But he wasn’t the only one i wondered about how who might not understand that they were disrespecting the flag and i worried how that would play out. Seems like they would be educated on that by their coaches and PR folks.
@Krusty I think i speak for all women on this forum when i give that a resounding NO!
ALso, i loved the guys announcing the men’s halfpipe. They make Bode Miller sound like he’s on Xanax. I really like Bode Miller and while i think he is articulate in his commentary on the men’s skiing, he has no inflection or excitement in his voice. Kind of cracks me up.
I could care less about that. The man has ice in his veins. The Japanese guy bested his already fantastic score, and with the last run of the event, he BLEW IT UP!
I thought the same things about the flag. But I give him a pass. It was a pretty emotional moment. did you see the footage of the crash when he tore up his face last October? To come back and win gold had to be pretty amazing for him.
I don't get why ANYONE would want to watch ANYTHING about Tonya Harding. I really don't get it.
The reason to watch the Tonya Harding movie is to get a sense of where she came and how hard you have to work to be an Olympian. What the trade offs are. (Plus it is bleakly funny- Particularly Alison Janney as Tonya's flinty mean-ass mom.) Maybe then the flaws in say someone like Shaun White are easier to understand. It gets to the heart of motivation, and perhaps to the inability to see where success becomes entitlement, particularly if success comes at a young age.
