    So I am guessing that the Russians, Chinese and Romanians won't be shown until late night? Ugh! Will have to look for them online I guess.

    I was trying to come up with a one-liner that involved Tancock and Destinee Hooker, but was coming up completely dry.

    All I could think of was that the lowliest skating novice from lower Slobovia has better choreo than that.

    Can someone explain to me what a team captain does in swimming? Is it just an honorific?

    The USA won the team gold at Worlds in both 2003 & 2007, yet got the silver at the OG in 2004 & 2008.

    How would you like to swim next to an Olympic medalist in your high school meet? Is that even fair?

    They get to punish those who don't medal.

    I don't get it, either and I definitely link it is the stupidest thing ever.

    Aside from vote for who gets to carry the flag, I have no idea.

    I know Aly is the captain for Women's gym. Is Horton the men's captain?

    I know one thing they do is meet with the other team captains to choose the flag bearer. I don't know if there are other specific duties but leadership can count for a lot - especially with first timers and those who aren't likely to win medals.

    Maybe the the men's captain is in charge of the shaving party?

    Yes. They were going to vote and everyone just said "Well, of course it's John" (paraphrased).
