ITA :rofl: That video is sadly hilarious. Yes he has always sounded as though he was on helium.

I'm just glad he didn't start screaming "But I'm an Olympic champion!".

Well, sorta glad, it woulda made it even funnier....... :shuffle:

$23.00 cab ride? That's like four blocks in NYC traffic. :rofl:

Too bad about Paul. It was a stupid thing to do. I do, however, give him credit for calling a cab rather than trying to drive.

I wonder if he even had a choice but to call a cab? Do we know if he drove to the bar or wherever he was drinking in the first place?

How well will the Chinese woman do? They seem to be all floor and balance beam specialists except for He Kexin. Are any of them good on vault?

Also does Cheng Fei have any chance of going to London?

They all have very high D score on uneven bar as well, so they cab afford to just do 3 dtys and yet have considerable competitive overall d score.

Paul Hamm cooked his own goose with regard to his job coaching, he's toast.

I read that the first camp had Weiber winning, no surprise, but Douglas was 2nd and apparently very good! Johnson won beam! Maroney didn't verify any events because of lingering back issues but I think/hope it is precautionary because she had this issue before Nationals and showed up looking great. We all know Marta rarely encourages sitting out so I think she must have told Maroney to not worry, she wants that vault score and doesn't want to break her. Douglas on the World team is just horrifying to me BUT she was recovering from a hamstring injury at Nats so maybe she just needed a little more time. I worry that she freaks in competition though and no matter how important camp is, it ISNT the same as a big competition on a podium. Macko apparently upgraded bars since Nationals, connecting her Church but I don't know to what, a pak? I am guessing she will be our bars girl unless Li hits next camp.
