    Love this tweet by comedienne Paula Poundstone:
    @paulapoundstone

    Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings win the gold, and pave the way for women who hyphenate. A win-win.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    THIS. The first time D-score came up was when it was involved in a tie breaker.

    Why is it such a big deal? Why did she feel the need to delete it? Nothing's wrong with going to a club. So weird.

    Probably because she's underage in the US (although not in the UK).

    (In many cities) you can still GO to clubs at 18 though, you just can't drink. She didn't say she was going drinking.

    Still, it was clearly a PR move to keep a "good girl" image to delete it, but what she replaced it with just had me ROFL.

    It's always the cover-up that gets you into trouble not the deed itself. She should have just left the tweet up.

    She also most likely deleted it because she never intended to tweet it in the first place.

    Deleting it and saying something that agreed with that tweet but made it sound innocent would probably have been the best choice.

    Did the tweet suggest that her teammates were going with her? They are underage even in the U.K. right? I think she may have been more concerned about getting them in trouble. Oh, that team captain, contributing to the deliquency of minors.

    Okay, WTH is the Maroney Meme? 3rd reference I've seen to this and I missed the original.
    Figure skating is hard.

    Maybe she was embarrassed to have said that she was "nervous" about going clubbing.
    Creating drama!

    It said "we are going with the guy gymnasts" which only implicates her team mates if you assume they are the "we" involved. But it could just as easily be other of-age USA girls.

    McKayla's momentary VT medal podium expression has spawned a "Maroney not impressed" meme -- with many, many photoshopped examples of just what does not impress her.

    I don't think it is just as likely to be people other than her teammates. It's much more likely that it was other American female gymnasts. Those are the people she knows, rooms with, and has been hanging out with. So, maybe she didn't want their parents to see the tweet.

    He's on reddit and swears he ISN'T "excited". His response to that was "if I was, I would have put forth a lot more effort to cover it with the flowers"


    My favorite meme picture so far is the team eating in the cafeteria in their leos with the statement "On Wednesdays, we wear pink". But I also love mean girls.

    In addition to "not impressed" McKayla is quite the meme queen for other pictures. Her fall picture has quite a few clever ones

    One I like not on that page is "Oh HELL no!"

    Sorry also if this has been posted, but the videos were in an article on my homepage today:

    Star Wars - Call Me Maybe
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBM7i84BThE

    They're both pretty chopped up, but amusing.
