Ryan Miller watched the Turin Olympic hockey tournament from his couch with his family in East Lansing, Mich., when he paid attention at all. "I just wanted to take a mental break from hockey," he said, and who could blame him? Miller might have been the best American goaltender in the NHL during the 2005-06 season, but he had suffered an early-season thumb injury and didn't return to the Buffalo Sabres' lineup until the day Team USA was announced. That was too late for team officials to feel comfortable including him on the roster.

T.J. Miller is easy to spot, poolside, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. On a warm, midweek afternoon, Miller is relaxing between the afternoon's meetings. But even while kicking back, he's hamming it up for this reporter, who has just arrived and is scanning the bustling crowd for him.

Dennis Miller's ratings have not varied more than a few tenths of a point since his late-night talk show debuted in January. But emotionally, the 38-year-old host has been on a wild roller coaster. "When you first go on the air, everybody watches--like when you're in traffic on the freeway and everybody stops because they want to see if it's a bad wreck," he said. "But eventually they put their foot on the accelerator. And then there's that period where you worry--are you in a free fall?

Bode Miller used to think the distractions that surrounded the Olympics were counter-productive. The Games, at least during working hours, were all business. But Miller, now 32, has taken a different approach for what could be his last Olympics. Miller, in fact, was very emotional after winning bronze in Monday's downhill. "I think that's part of why I wanted to come back," Miller said after the race. "I wanted that feeling. With my experience and technological knowledge, now I wanted to let my feelings go and let myself be emotionally involved in the race."

Bode Miller's chance for a second medal in Whistler will have to wait. The Olympic Alpine schedule got scrambled again Tuesday when an early morning storm forced the postponement of the men's super combined. The good news is that better weather is expected in Whistler for the next several days. The latest reset of Alpine events: the men's combined will be moved to Sunday, with the giant slalom getting bumped to next Tuesday, an open date on the schedule. The men's super giant slalom will remain in its original Friday spot.
