I'm an American but I often find it hard to root for American athletes because the jingoism of the commentators is just so intense. And then there's the heart-tugging fluff pieces, the stalker-like following of the parents, all of it. I watched some bbc livestreams and it is definitely nowhere near as bad, although they do still focus on british athletes.

Poor Michael. He tried to give Ryan a hand shake there and got totally left hanging.

:cheer2: Russia for the bronze.

Okay, so I don't know any of their swimmers anymore, but it's nice to see someone besides the usuals.

Popov was hott back in the day. I'm sure he still is.

Is it a law for the interviewers to be named Andrea?

I'd get rid of Carillo too.

I just can't figure out her appeal.

She was great back in Turin (was it Turin) when she hosted that Olympic Ice program. :)

I'd keep Cynthia Potter in diving too.

Trying to decide what's worse, Tim/Elfi/Al "was that a stick?" or Sandra/Scott/Al "landed on one foot!" :scream:

If it's not your specialty, then why were you swimming the anchor?

Just man up. You got beat.

Andrea: "Ryan what happened there in the stretch?"

Ryan: "I was distracted by Rowdy screaming and your craptastic hair."

Probably just the angle, but that one dude was looking like Ryan Bradley.

And um yeah. Lochte is purty for sure, but shouldn't talk too much.

I do feel bad for Ryan - they had the lead and it will be hanging on his head forever.

The US guys are so hot, except for Phelps.

Kinda like the gymnastics team.

Horton is the Phelps there.

I will now say something positive about Phelps, and then deny it all later.

For all the hyping he gets on NBC, and the crap he gets for having his brain shrunk by too much chlorine, weed, and all-you-can-eat buffets, Phelps is very, very gracious in defeat, both towards his teamates and other countries.

Isn't the 100 free not a top race for Phelps, either? I don't remember seeing him compete in that race at the Trials. Why was he in the relay?
