I know he's defending world and Olympic champ, but I can't believe Zou Kai made finals with that mess. :yikes:

His D score is like, 90. :lol:

Yes he did. He qualified 7th.

Way to crush my hopes and dreams. :mad: I'm not one to even *think* an injury on someone, but if this kid schellps the gold AGAIN....*mutters incoherently*

ETA: Here's hoping that Horton can exact some sweet, sweet revenge on him. One can hope...

:lol: But his E score should have been about negative 75. :P

Do you think that they will show the Archery Team since they won a medal? It was a fun competition to watch but certainly not prime time appeal :P

Question for you gymnastics people, why do the women have to use crappy music for floor exercises and the men don't?

We're barely getting any subdivision one coverage with Great Britain if they're already on Louis with pommel. Ugh.

Supposedly the music adds to the artistic interpretation? That the men have to do strength moves and the women are supposed to incorporate some dance moves into the tumbling?

You're preaching to the choir.

It's just the way the COP is. Connecting all those pirouettes gets him a ton of bonus.

Hopefully, it'll be fixed next quad the way UB has.

NBC online showed everything today. If you have cable or satellite, it's all available. In fact, you can watch two events at once.

Plain cable won't do it, according to my internet provider - you must have the "TV Essential tier or higher" :blah:
