    NBC - Day 2- Revenge of the Bathing Suit: Swimming, Beach Vollyball, and Gymnastics.

    Beach Volley Ball haterz can suck it. It is an awesome sport. It's in an FSU title. That's PROOF.

    Yes, this is the NBC thread. I was just, umm, testing y'all.

    Yes, this is the NBC thread. I'm sorry, could some nice admin add that to the title? I swear I put it in there.

    I have no idea what I'm looking at in synchro diving, but I like it.

    The Chinese are amazing. If the Americans had better toes, I'd be rooting for them, but you just can't compete with the Canadian pedicure.

    General question, are spoilers allowed in this thread? I worked all day and haven't seen any of the results, so I'm watching completely unspoiled for once! ( ) So if people might happen to talk about what happened earlier today, I'll peel out of the thread.

    The Canadian girl's legs were so far apart.
    ETA: Yikes, the Italians were sloppy!

    Quite the wedgie from one of the Canadians, but very nice dive.

    We got to see US winter nationals live a few years back and diving has been one of my favorites since. and syncro diving is just beautiful.

    Do we really need a fluff piece about the Americans on EVERY dive?

    I didn't know fluff could get stupider, until I saw that duck clip.

    I think there's always that danger in this thread. It's supposed to be spoiler free, and I'm sure everyone will mean to keep it that way, but I know for a fact that several of the posters in here (including me) know what happened in a lot of the events being shown, and accidents happen.

    I think you have the most to worry about in swimming and gymnastics, so you might want to avert your eyes while those sports are being shown.

    Thanks! I know everyone has the right intentions I'll continue to read cautiously as the broadcast continues, because I love the snarking and running commentary!

    DUMBLEDORE DIES!...

    I mean, uh, we will try to snark without spoiling!

    So why do these US divers supposedly carry the hopes of their entire team and the US Diving federation?
