    Peter would probably know more than Al does.

    I expected to see Russia in late night, but then realized they'd be shown in primetime to emphasize the whole US vs USSR Russia rivalry. Showing Komova as AA leader is part of that.

    Yes, and they did very nicely.

    Komova and Afan both score at least 15. Grishina had a 14.9 and Musty had 14.7

    I love the French national anthem.

    The national anthems sound so strange for these games.

    After hearing the French anthem, all of a sudden I've got the Indiana Jones theme stuck in my head.

    So weird.

    I feel like a bad American for saying it, but I won't be upset at all if the Russian ladies win on Tuesday. I really want Gabby to get an OGM though!

    Why can't Gabby be Russian!? That would solve all of my problems!

    I like the Russians on principle but they do seem a bit sloppy. Hopefully they'll tighten things up in team final.

    Komova has really grown up since 2011 worlds

    Mustafina is gorgeous.

    The Russian leos are beautiful!

    I find Aliya to be an absolutely beautiful young woman. Her eyes are to die for.

    And Komova's incredibly cute.

    I really like this Russian team. I hope they kick ass. But I know they tend to be complete head cases.

    I think Mustafina, Grishina and Komova could have really benefited from better choreography and music, but there were definitely moments in their routines where you could see the elegance, the intensity, the ballet training, the long lines....

    It was Cassablanca for me



    But I did get an Anti-Russian vibe from Al and Tim. I was kinda surprised they painted Mustafina as the favorite rather than Komova. They definitely love the character. They could have shown the rest of the Russians routines rather than gabbing about Jordan, nevermind the Karolyi interview. I would have rather seen the Romanians than all the clips of Michael Phelps.

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    Moi aussi.

    Paula Pell (comedian) just tweeted about the incredible sexual chemistry between Carillo and Costas.

    Twitter is reinforcing for me how odd it is to have all kinds of people following sports I like but the majority usually ignore.
