"This routine will almost surely give He Kexin the opportunity to defend her gold medal, which is unheard of." --moronic comment #820506 from the NBC team.

If Vika hits in EF, I think the judges will give her the beam title. They seem to LOVE her there.

I love how they can recognize Aliya's missed connections and say her score is inflated but whine about Wieber being underscored.:rolleyes:

Well, it's those damn pinko commies who bribe the judges :rolleyes:

I DESPISE the NBC commentary.

Dear Bob Costas, they didn't have guillotines in the Tower of London! Guillotines were French.

Let's bring on Peter Carruthers to replace Al. He's always very complimentary of the Russians in skating, why not in gymnastics? It's not like he'd be some kind of downgrade from Al. :lol:

I think I'm supposed to like the Russians (I usually adore the artistic gymnasts) but I feel bad in saying that I don't really care for them that much. I don't even know why at this point either. They're beautiful gymnasts but something just rubs me the wrong way. Oh well. I guess that's what makes us all fans...we like different things. I do wish we could have seen Afan's FX, the Russians on bars, and Beth's bars routine. Nice job NBC....NOT. :blah:

Hoping for Team USA to come out fighting on Tuesday night. :respec:

They really do need to hire the Shannon. I think this might be the last Olympics covered by Elfi once NBC realized how much people love listening to the Shannon absolutely everywhere. And then hire Maroney to give Al a stare everytime he interrupts the Shannon to make a stupid comment. He would never say a word. :D

Peter would probably know more than Al does. :lol:

I seriously think they are on purpose showing Russia where the performances were shakiest.

From the way they covered it, I think they wanted to show Russia's final event so that they could talk about the AA standings. Did Russia finish on beam?

I expected to see Russia in late night, but then realized they'd be shown in primetime to emphasize the whole US vs USSR Russia rivalry. Showing Komova as AA leader is part of that.

Yes, and they did very nicely.

Komova and Afan both score at least 15. Grishina had a 14.9 and Musty had 14.7

The French swimmers aren't very hawt compared to some other teams.
