Backstory here: Bode Miller made an insensitive comment concerning Anna Veith regarding her recent marriage that was a little– how you say. Shit. Let’s just say Bode fucked up.
“I want to point out she also got married and it’s historically very challenging to race on World Cup with a family or after being married. Not to blame the spouses, but I just want to toss that out there, that it could be her husband’s fault.” (*Quote courtesy of the Daily Beast)
Other than this one mishap, definitely a mishap, Bode’s commentary is really good on the whole. But he’s going to be feeling it on the homefront, a fact which he admitted. “Certainly, I’m going to be hearing it from my wife, I know.”
Bode has since apologized and said it was an ill attempt at a marriage comedy bit that didn’t go over as well as he thought it’d would. “That was an ill-advised attempt at a joke. I was an athlete that competed after marriage and I know how beneficial it is. I know the support team you need. I relied on my friends and family.”
