Snowboarding Coach Bud Keene Cusses, Drops F-Bomb on TV
Wednesday was a good day for the U.S. at the Winter Games. Pre-Olympics darlings Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, and Shani Davis all captured gold medals much to the delight of their sponsors, not to mention millions of fans. White actually had such a high score after his first run in the halfpipe that nobody beat him, so he had clinched the gold prior to his final run. He was debating whether to take a victory lap and that led to this cuss-word filled conversation with coach Bud Keene on live TV. If you listen closely, you’ll hear Keene drop and f-bomb and s-bomb in this video:
Chris Chase at Yahoo! Sports Fourth-Place Medal blog has the entire transcription of their dialog. As you saw in that video, White wound up making a pressure-less ride, nailing the double mctwist. White reportedly makes around $8 million in sponsorship deals per year. With his top move being the double mctwist you have to wonder how McDonald’s hasn’t gotten into the action yet. Can’t you just picture every 12-year-old in America wanting to go to Mickey D’s to order the Shaun White Double McTwist? Come on people, I can’t do all the work for you!
