To sum it up, we have a lot in common with Bode and Ricky and nothing in common with Michael and Cal. What makes Michael Jordon such a great athlete might make him a lousy co-worker or friend. When it comes time to make choices in life, we will likely become like Bode, not Mike. As Klosterman says,
"I can't read Bode Miller's mind, but I bet the interior monologue bouncing around his cerebral cortex sounds something like this: "My job is OK, and I'm good at it. I suppose I could even be better if that was the only thing I cared about, but I'm not sure what the benefit of that would be, beyond appeasing a bunch of people I'll never actually meet. And if I can get paid this much money for being myself, why would I want to force myself to become somebody else's caricature? I'm already content with who I am."This makes complete sense to me and helps me understand why I was one of 5 people in America that liked Bode Miller. Give it a well deserved 5 minutes to peruse and let me know what you think.
