Scotty Lago Racy Pics Causing a Stir

Olympic snowboarder Scotty Lago is packing up his bronze medal and leaving Vancouver after racy pictures surfaced online.

Lago apologized to officials at the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association after TMZ posted photos taken on a public street of a girl on her knees kissing his medal which he had placed over his...ummm...private parts.  In another photo, the same girl is seen biting the medal.

The 22-year-old New Hampshire native is voluntarily heading home before the Olympic closing ceremony.

So what are your thoughts?  Are the pictures scandalous?  Drop a comment below and let us know what you think.

It turns out the whole thing may have been intentionally staged by the girl in the photos - details here.

By way of contrast, Bode Miller, the bad boy of the Torino Games has shed his former image by winning bronze, silver and finally GOLD - check it out here.
