    Way to crush my hopes and dreams. I'm not one to even *think* an injury on someone, but if this kid schellps the gold AGAIN....*mutters incoherently*

    ETA: Here's hoping that Horton can exact some sweet, sweet revenge on him. One can hope...

    But his E score should have been about negative 75.

    Do you think that they will show the Archery Team since they won a medal? It was a fun competition to watch but certainly not prime time appeal

    Question for you gymnastics people, why do the women have to use crappy music for floor exercises and the men don't?

    We're barely getting any subdivision one coverage with Great Britain if they're already on Louis with pommel. Ugh.

    Supposedly the music adds to the artistic interpretation? That the men have to do strength moves and the women are supposed to incorporate some dance moves into the tumbling?

    You're preaching to the choir.

    It's just the way the COP is. Connecting all those pirouettes gets him a ton of bonus.

    Hopefully, it'll be fixed next quad the way UB has.

    Plain cable won't do it, according to my internet provider - you must have the "TV Essential tier or higher"

    I hate fluff pieces.

    I might be the only one, but I like Ryan Seacrest. I've always felt that he was good at what he does.

    Men never did have music. The women used to have someone playing piano - live. I don't remember if it was always the same piece or not. I don't think the gymnast got any say in what was played, but I could be wrong. Then they changed so the gymnast could choose their own recorded music. We could always go back to that - not.
