I didn't know fluff could get stupider, until I saw that duck clip.

General question, are spoilers allowed in this thread? I worked all day and haven't seen any of the results, so I'm watching completely unspoiled for once! ( :cheer2: ) So if people might happen to talk about what happened earlier today, I'll peel out of the thread. :)

I think there's always that danger in this thread. It's supposed to be spoiler free, and I'm sure everyone will mean to keep it that way, but I know for a fact that several of the posters in here (including me) know what happened in a lot of the events being shown, and accidents happen.

I think you have the most to worry about in swimming and gymnastics, so you might want to avert your eyes while those sports are being shown.

Thanks! I know everyone has the right intentions :) I'll continue to read cautiously as the broadcast continues, because I love the snarking and running commentary! :D

DUMBLEDORE DIES!...

I mean, uh, we will try to snark without spoiling!

So why do these US divers supposedly carry the hopes of their entire team and the US Diving federation?

Theatregirl-US hasn't medaled in diving since 2000. So I think all the divers feel a lot of pressure.

I love Cynthia Potter. Too bad the gymnastics commentators don't explain things they way she does.

Ah, I see. That makes sense.

Happy crying athletes always choke me up even though the only other time I've ever seen these girls was trials. :lol:

I am sorta amused that the US divers reaction to getting the silver was so very unsynchronized with one jumping up and down and one kneeling and moved to tears :lol:

:lynch: I was on page 583!

... :rofl: :P ;)

YAY for a US diving medal! I can't believe they've come up dry since 2000. Hopefully that brings up some good things for the rest of the team this week!

I doubt they would have caught up to gold, but I think US girls were underscored a few times. Still, amazing job!

I sometimes feel like diving is like ice dancing of old, where it is all about rep, and the Chinese (who are very good) get handed gold.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU'RE A LESSER GAY!

Because that way they can play drammmatik music and show the podium in primetime.

Apparently Kelci is a medical student at Duke? I think that's what Blythe Hartley said. So cool! :respec:

How many times to I have to see Kim today? And she has the most untiffed jacket ever on the podium.

HE JUST WANTED TO KEEP HIS PRIVATE LIFE PRIVATE. LIKE ANDERSON COOPER!

If we have to watch the 400IM again, I'm going to cut a bitch.
