I get that these Amanars are good, but they just don't LOOK that good to me. I think I'm so behind the times that I still miss the old vault. I hate how everyone hops to the side and to the front.

I could really live without any more closeups on gymnasts' feet. Just saying...

Annoys me about the American commentators: he says the Americans will just "crush the rest of the world" with the scores on their vaults.

So, let's just put more more pressure on these girls by making Joe Public think they will crush everyone else...and if they don't live up to that, my gosh, how awful.

You can use far less aggressive and more respectful language.

The reason why the audience has no idea how dominant the US is on vault? Maybe because NBC won't show other countries, except maybe on late night. :shuffle:

Canoeing and Kayaking is scheduled for late night.

OK--it really sounded like the start of the theme from Jaws playing when Maroney did her second vault there.

I hate these commentators. Why is it the figure skating and gymnastics commentators suck, and the ones for the other sports seem to be okay?

You know they only showed 2 Russian routines in late night last night, right? It was extremely disappointing.

I was saying that they are less likely to show later subs during prime time because all of the routines they did show from the later subs last night were in late night.

Although it might be different tonight because the main contenders are in later subs.

I see purple.

No, not three silvers! How horrible!

I cannot tell a snark on Maroney, for that was the awesome.

I thought the leos were purple too.


I see royal blue

(and I'm not Bruce Willis!)

Going by how figure skating costume colors change on TV, I'm guessing they are very purple.

China is on top the medal table so far with 12 medals total including 6 gold. The US is 2nd with 11 medals including 3 gold and Italy is 3rd with 7 medals ncluding 2 gold. A bunch of countries are on 3 & 4 medals.

Almost all sports fans hate almost all of the commentators for their sport. You should hear basketball fans talk about basketball commentators.

uh, maybe not too many gymnasts can say they competed in the Olympics when they are 15...because the federation is saying they are older?

I've always hated balance beam. It's never made sense to me. Then again, Tom Hammond's continued employment makes no sense either.

Can we start a campaign now to get Shannon Miller to do TV commentary for 2016?

I hate these commentators, too!
"Other teams are a little better than the US on uneven bars" - gee, ya think?
