This gymnastics coverage is abysmal :mad: I'll have to watch the NBC tape coverage tomorrow as well, hopefully it's not *this* bad for them women's.

Watch an online stream.

Leyva and Orozco both had the same average score in team finals which was higher than Horton's so it isn't just the AA that had those two vaulting but certainly Leyva or Horton could have gone. Orozco was definitely struggling in practice according to all reports.

Huh?

But well done to the 15yo! :wideeyes:

That being said, did NBC really feel the need to air an Obama campaign ad in the middle of tonight's broadcast? :rolleyes: :wall: :blah:.

I've seen about 100 political ads, for both sides and not just presidential, during NBC coverage in the last few days.

We got a Romney ad today, and an Obama ad yesterday. :lol:

Ugh.....there should be a rule banning any political ads of any kind during the Olympics.

I can't speak for everyone, but for me at least, the Olympics is an escape of sorts from all of the day-to-day insanity, sadness, and other depressing crap we watch/read on the news. The last things I want to be reminded of during these precious few hours are murders and other various violent crimes, the economy/unemployment, political sniping/mudslinging, and in this year, of course, the November election.

Me too.

There's this Rick Berg ad that I keep seeing over and over.

Thanks! If I'm working I can't watch though, which means I have to wait till the prime time coverage on NBC. :fragile: Does any one know if there's video of the event available after it's done streaming?

Tres adorable! :swoon: I want to carry him around in a papoose.....

DAMNIT. You have foiled my sekret plan to squire him away while everyone was looking at Dalton. :wuzrobbed

Even by gymnast standards, Sam has a mighty fine caboose for the papoose.

I swear, y'all, between the gymnasts and the swimmers and especially the divers, I feel like I'm watching Oly 2012: the Bel Amie version.

BTW, how are our plans to unite Tancock and and Hooker? They so need to spawn and then hyphenate the last names. I'm picturing little Vulva Tancock-Hooker and Randy Tancock-Hooker in my head right now. :swoon:

I'm just glad we don't have to hear Tonito's overprotective parents :yikes:

Missy Franklin is friggin' amazing. :respec: Also, from the interviews/fluff, you can tell that she even has a brain!

And her parents are adorable. :)

Crap, I'm honestly sorry for the spoiler. :( If it's any consolation that was far from being the suspenseful part of the competition, but I didn't mean to ruin it.

Huh?

I realize that made no sense. :lol: They had the same average score over Visa's/Trials and it was slightly higher than Horton's so it's not like there wasn't evidence that they were vaulting better than Horton in competition.
