Sure, Bode acted like a chode. And he deserves to reap what he has sown. It would be nice to return to the days when endorsments played a smaller part in the Olympics. But I also have to agree with SG on this one. Wishing bodily harm on someone who isn't in the process of harming others doesn't do anybody any good IMHO and seems a bit harsh.

Perhaps he should be made to watch his Nike comercials for 24 hours straight. But I guess that would be a harsher punishment than blowing a knee.
