Re-dive was way better than before - 91.80 compared to 75.60 :wideeyes:.

This could create all kinds of :watch: :drama: :argue: depending on how the final results shake out.

I don't have a problem with re-doing the dive, per se, but then I think of the gymnastic girls that have cameras, people screaming their name, waving, coaches yelling at them from the side, and I think grown men should be able to shut it out a bit better.

Diving is about the only event this Olys where I've enjoyed the men SO MUCH more than the women.

Maybe. It also means he does 7 dives while others do 6.

Oh yeah. The women have been rather lackluster. Oh man, I hope Dave Boudia does well. This will be very nerve wracking.

Damn, this is a high-scoring event. EEK. Hope they show this tonight so I can watch it on the big TV.

1/2 way thru and I gotta eat my words: Boudia in the lead. :wideeyes:

Can I be an honorary good Canadian by marrying McCormick? Mmmmm, tasty. :grope:

Boudia is bringing it today, as well as Daley and of course the Chinese.

I downloaded something called AirParrot which allows me to stream anything on my computer to my TV through the AppleTV. I love watching this on my 50 inch television. Why didn't I think of this during gymnastics?!

As usual, the men's event is top notch quality whereas the women's was a splatfest.

Boudia's 4 1/2 tuck dive was a thing of beauty :swoon:

Yeah, other than Chen, no one wanted a medal. Still happy Pandelela got the bronze, though.
