      The Alpine downhill events have always been something I’ve enjoyed, going way back to childhood. It’s fast, and I love seeing the skiers grabbing some air. I haven’t followed it as much as I used to, but when it comes time for the Olympics, it’s a must watch.

      For the Vancouver 2010 Olympic games, the event was actually pushed back a few days

      because of weather. That made us all that much more anxious to see it.

      Americans were eagerly watching Bode Miller. Now Bode is a bit controversial. He’s had attitude, to say the least. Folks, including him, say he’s different now. He’s a father and appears to be more appreciative.

      Miller had an early run and did well, but he later admitted ...

      • being a little careful at the last turn due to injuries. What I liked about him was that he wasn’t rationalizing; he was simply explaining. He had a big smile on his face on the accomplishments of the skiers who came later, outdoing him. He says he has no regrets, and he sounded that way as well.

        Canada’s Robbie Dixon hit a

        gate and then fell. It’s a shame to do that at any time, but especially when you’re competing on home soil. He laid in the snow for quite a while, but did get up fortunately.

        In the end, Miller had the bronze, with Aksel Lund Swindal of Norway the silver, and Didier DeFaco of Switzerland the gold. It was a good, clean competition.
