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

Dear god, yes. My eyes were rolling into the back of my head so many times during the commentary they resembled a hamster wheel.


Tim Daggett isn't great, but I do feel like he tries to insert reason when Al says really dumb stuff - he's just fighting against such an overwhelming tide of stupidity.

You mean like when he called Gabby "the McKayla Maroney of the Uneven Bars?" :rofl:


lol, komova's got an edge because she grew out her bangs

She definitely tiffed it up compared to 2001 Worlds -- at that competition, she looked a bit like a post-WWII street urchin, but now, with her hair lightened a bit, a smart, slicked-back pony tail, and some make-up, Komova looks more like a young woman.


Wow, those are some bags under the eyes on Grishina!

I saw that yesterday - she looked exhausted.

My friend took one look at Grishina and said "oh god she looks like she wants to cut someone" :lol:

I didn't even notice gabby's shout out to Jesus because I was too busy :rolleyes: that she called her blaringly obvious major mistake a minor misstep and also distracted by wondering if her teeth were twice as big as kerrigan's or just seemed that way :P

Ah, plastic surgery - the answer to everything. :rolleyes:

Yes... I'm glad she outed this guy (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2154344/Rebecca-Adlington-outs-Twitter-troll-called-whale-hours-winning-event.html)...

Eh, I wasn't a fan of her conk. But, any fool calling her a 'whale' is a blind ass.

I like her nose. It makes her unique. When all of her friends' looks have faded into middle-age obscurity, she'll be interesting and distinctive. And a gold medalist.

(Though in full disclosure, I have a borderline obsession with odd noses :lol: )

I don't really think calling her a whale is any worse then suggesting she needs to get her nose fixed. Both really ignorant pathetic comments.

But I did get an Anti-Russian vibe from Al and Tim. I was kinda surprised they painted Mustafina as the favorite rather than Komova. They definitely love the character. They could have shown the rest of the Russians routines rather than gabbing about Jordan, nevermind the Karolyi interview. I would have rather seen the Romanians than all the clips of Michael Phelps.

No joke! I am so sick of hearing about Michael Phelps! He's not even the focal point of this Olympic Games like he seemingly was in Beijing, and yet NBC is still making him and his family media hogs. :blah::shuffle:
