    Phelps is really awkward like this fluff.

    Sorry for those who don't have it then, because it was excellent. You could have two events playing at the same time and switch the larger view back and forth. My only complaint was that the feed seemed to freeze a lot, but that was a minor issue. Because NBC is offering this, they are going to do very focused events at prime time and they'll be the ones most Americans want to watch since that's their prime marketing target.

    I do not want to see the Phelps gene pool. There are hot gymnasts to watch

    They showed the ending twice on NBC today, plus the medal ceremony. And they chatted with the team.

    I had to mute it after about forty seconds.

    Antiquated ideas about gender roles. Same reason that women in FS have to do laybacks and a spiral sequence as a required element and the men don't. It's nothing really to do with the different physical capabilities of males and females, but more about what men and women (or boys and girls) are "supposed" to be like. The only really legitimate sex-based differences between MAG and WAG are not letting the women do roll-out skills, and maybe still rings, maybe.

    Personally, I would enjoy seeing Uchimura and Orozco on beam, and Wiebs and Musty on rings.

    I don't mind good fluff, but this is all terrible so far. Looking forward to getting home when I can flip between NBC and CTV and fast forward through the crap. Or at least do something else to occupy myself in the meantime.

    And my mom likes Seacrest, so you're not alone. I'm not sure that you want to be in her company though.

    I see we're pretending that lane 8 is an advantage?

    Hopefully, that Romanian stream is working tomorrow, so I can watch that for women's prelims and not have to just follow quick hits.

    Wow, Lochte does not look nearly as good in his bathing cap as he did in the picture accompanying the sexiest Olympians article. I think it's his eyebrows that look weird.

    They had the same piano music for compulsories, but got to choose their own piano floor music for optionals. I'll never forget Korbut's Alley Cat because my mum made me practice that song on piano for HOURS.

    Just out of curiosity, what is the legitimate difference you're talking about wrt roll-out skills?

    Dear god, it's insane how dominant this performance was from Ryan. He was leading after the opening lap in his WORST stroke.

    Now lane 8 is a disadvantage.

    The most shocking thing to me about this race is that Michael lost the medal in this race in the free.
