    It seemed to affect only her D score. Her E score was still quite high. 5.9 + 8.7

    SOOOOOOOOOOOO annoyed for Bulimar. SHe would have made the floor final in a heart beat had she been given the chance. Fcking Chelaru with her shitty 14.3

    My feed froze with the gal on FX in the air doing the splits. That round circular dot thing was going and going and going in her crotch. If NBC only knew what porny things their crap feed is doing!

    Japan going well so far - their two weakest events coming up though; I hope they can get to the final.

    That's what I don't get, it seemed to me that she singled out her triple twist?

    You guys are making me feel really badly about how hard I used to root against Shannon Miller when she competed, god even remembers why... I was so young and so full of various biases. Unlike now, angel that I am in my middle age.

    I saw her crying when I switched to the UB feed. Do you know how she hurt herself?

    Yes, so she got credit for a well done single.

    Hopefully she wouldn't also be using traffic signals to explain scoring.

    I wish I could rep Kyle Shewfelt for the way that he handles our favourite talking mustache, Rod Black. Rod is actually almost tolerable (aside from showing delight when others' mistakes help Canadians to qualify, which is totally ) and I have to attribute a lot of that to Kyle.

    I don't agree with that - the backhandspring into the missed triple twist was really messy, which was why she missed it in the first place, and should have been deducted.

    Christine Still is also disappointed Bulimar didn't do floor.

    I really feel like the Romanians have been overscored in general lately...Not sure I agree with Ponor higher score than Wieber here.

    Oh. I thought someone had mentioned that she was doing commentary outside the U.S. and thought you might have found access to it.

    I have tons of respect for Shannon -- and am happy to see her doing so well after undergoing treatment for cancer.

    I'd actually quite like Iordache to qualify 7th. It might be better for her to finish on vault, go for the Amanar at the end as opposed to the start of her campaign.

    Me too - I really love their style of gymnastics, which is clean and precise but still fluid. I was wondering if they could play spoiler in the medal hunt, but that is looking a little less likely given the way they are on floor.

    She was doing a tucked double back and fell forward. Looked like she grabbed her thigh.

    It is kind of disappointing that Ponor had that huge mistake yet still made FX final, knocking Beth down to first alternate.

    Musty and Tweddle have the same FX score, but Musty makes finals due to the tiebreak of having a higher D score.
