So is "My Time" going to be mentioned every. single. time. Lochte races? Because I may have to lob a shoe at my teevee.

Lochte likes shoes.

Just out of curiosity, what is the legitimate difference you're talking about wrt roll-out skills?

Men are a lot stronger and they generally have much stronger muscles in their back, neck, shoulders, and along the spine, so there's a much lesser change of paralysis ala Mukhina. Roll-outs are still quite dangerous for men if done incorrectly, but a lot less than for women, unless the women are on steroids and built like men. Basically the stronger you are, the more protection your muscles provide the bones in your neck if you land on your head, instead of going "crunch" and severing your spinal cord.

Do your shoes have your name on the soles? If not, Ryan isn't impressed.

Why did they start at the wrong end of the pool? Does it have something to do with the Brits penchant for driving on the wrong side of the road? ;)

THIS IS MY TIME. did you hear that Princess? I can say it again if you didn't

ETA: what the hell did Andrea expect Michael to say. "I feel great, I wanted to swim and not win a medal as that was my goal for this Olympics" jeez

Michael clearly hasn't even come around to deciding what to say.

"Hey, Michael, you really sucked on that race! Tell us how that feels!"

"It's frustrating."

"But, yeah, you were terrrible! Tell us more!"

:rolleyes:

And Lochte can keep his hideous shoes. :P If they don't say Louboutin, I'm not impressed. :P

The only way we're gonna get rid of the terrible trio is if another network starts outbidding NBC for gymnastics events.

I want Borden, and Bart, and maybe Kathy Johnson too.

Probably more to do with where they placed the camera.
