Shaun White’s Sochi Olympics: Disappointed fans react on Twitter

Remember that commercial where Shaun White cheeses at the camera and talks about new things he’s bringing to Sochi? It turns out he meant bailing from slopestyle and a fourth place finish in the halfpipe.

Like mighty Samson, the Flying Tomato just didn’t have the power without his trademark locks. America’s most famous Olympian from these games is heading home without any hardware.

After falling short of the medal podium, fans and media on Twitter commented on America’s plight with patriotic disappointment.
