Winter X Games Host Thinks Bode Miller Comments Are A ‘Brew Ha Ha’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Olympic skier Bode Miller created an avalanche of controversy after admitting he skied while drunk, but the host of the Winter X Games thinks it’s all a “brew ha ha” over nothing.

Sal Masekela – who will be hosting the games on ESPN between Jan. 28-31 – says the media is giving Miller a snow job.

As he puts it, “We’ve all gone to the lodge in the middle of the day and had a beer and went out on the slopes afterwards boarding better than before.”

Masekela admits he doesn’t know Miller’s specific training regimen but says, personally, “A bottle of Heineken gets the blood flowing and loosens up the joints.”

Although Masekela will be introducing the various sports during the three day competition, he expects he’ll be sneaking off to snowboard any chance he gets because, “I have to get on a hill everyday. If I didn’t, I’d feel like not really delivering what it’s like to be there.”
