Bode Miller Cements 'Everyman' Status With Remarkable Olympic Ineptitude

One of the cool things about Bode Miller is that he's unlike a typical Olympian.

But the one thing that has always defined him was his occasional greatness in Alpine skiing.

Eight seconds before disqualification? Now that's about as well as a random person off the street would fare in the slalom. Your Regular Joe cred is unimpeachable, Mr. Miller.
