I just won the FIS Alpine World Cup on Sat., we have a SL on Sunday. Do I party or do I ski in a SL that has no impact on the ski season? Your the best in the world, no need to ski on Sunday with a hangover, sleep in, don't risk hurting yourself. If you had any coaching, they would have pulled you out of the SL. I have a feeling they (coaches) may have been out partying as well. Stop the B.S., This kid Bloom from the CU Football program telling Miller to Knock it off!!! Get real, This whole thing about skiing with a hangover after you won the 2005 FIS Alpine World Cup needs to end now. Last word I hope on this subject. I'm off to Boulder, Colo. for a drink and a party....
P.S. I think Jeremy Bloom is a great skier, hell of a football player and a great Ambassador for the sport of skiing. You also got a bad deal from the NCAA . Good luck in Torino and the NFL Combine Camp in March.
Tell Marolt and Company to relax, Canadain Olympic Hockey Coach Wayne Gretzky is on his way to Torino, Italy with problems on his hockey stick that makes Bode Miller look like an Angel. "OPERATION SLAP SHOT" BY THE FBI.

Tomba: Bode is only in a difficult moment right now. It happens to every great athlete. I know from my experience that in these cases, it is not simple to face the pressure, and sometimes things get exaggerated. But he's a good guy, and a talented skier. He already made his official statements, so let's just watch him race now during the Olympics. Not too much Bode, though, hopefully an Italian will be first.
Tomba: Katarina and I have been good friends since Calgary. That's all. I'm sorry to disappoint anyone who thought we were in love. Now we work together as Founding Members of the Laureus Academy, which includes 40 of the best known athletes in the world. Through the Sport for Good Foundation, we help underprivileged children and people rebuild their lives and dignity through sports.
Tomba: Again with this story. Some years ago, during the Olympics, I did an interview and as a joke I said that my training was having five women in my room until five in the morning. But it was a just a joke! No one can behave that way and then the day after, hit the starting gate at 3,000 meters, 20 degrees below zero, and win a race. But the atmosphere in the Olympic village is unbelievable, with all the athletes from every part of the world, the best in their nations, so focused and concentrating. But also open to share the moment with each other, the public and the press. It is impossible to explain
