Unfortunately Shaun White finished in 4th place in men’s halfpipe. He announced recently that he’d be retiring after the Beijing Games, and was pretty emotional after his final run. Here’s a Flashback Friday of Shaun White being interviewed by CNN’s Kyra Phillips after he won gold in the 2006 Olympics.
He admitted that the flight attendants on the way home were giving him unlimited drinks.
When Kyra tried to call him out about the drinks because he was 19, he said, quote, “I’m talkin’ ’bout Mountain Dews baby.” That made her giggle and blush, and say, “He called me baby. He called me baby.” And then, “Gettin’ a little warm here.”
