Yes, we will have to agree to disagree on this one.
For the US, while I like the idea of Ally Raisman in her role of Team Captain (and when she *finally* got that punch front in on her first tumbling pass in EF Floor Exercise, all that was heard in this house was my screech of delight!! ), it wouldn't shock me to see it go to Gabby Douglas. The first African American to win Olympic All Around is pretty hard to ignore.
I will say this though. If a male athlete carries in The Star Spangled Banner, after how the female members of the team have performed, I'll be shocked!!
I also love the idea of Misty and Kerri and there is precedence for it. Marnie McBean and Kathleen Heddle were Canada's Closing Ceremonies flagbearers in Barcelona (I think that's right), so a team of two could indeed do it. I don't envy the USOC to make this decision though, as you guys have so many worthy of the honour.
And Congratulations to Sandra!! After the crap she went through w/the "coaching team" for Romania, she w/out a doubt earned it.
