    I can't even see the clay pigeons. I'd be hopeless at that event.

    Did everyone see the fuss over lolo jones's tweet? And then USA wins a gun event.

    I think even the furricanes are sick of hearing that Phelps missed out on a medal.

    Well, it didn't help NBC's ratings or Michael's endorsement contracts so from their perspective the most terrible thing did happen.

    They can't get to the gymnastics for a while. They broadcast until midnight and need to keep the prime audience between 9-11.

    I love the way swimmers prep, throwing water on themselves, getting a mouthful and spitting. Then flailing arms. I bet it all helps.

    Vollmer looks like she's going to be pinching herself for a long time

    Random, I wish they had them starting off the other side of the pool. It just seems.. weird to have them starting and finishing on the left end. It seemed weird in Beijing, too.

    WOW, Dana!

    Her top cap fell off in the pool, that's weird.

    Clearly the end of Western Civilization. In fact, the water is the tears weeped by children and puppies all over the world who have realized that a beautiful, beautiful dream has died.

    Vollmer is an insensitive, horrible person to win with a WR when all of our hopes were dashed by Phelps. Come on Andrea, ask her what this means for Phelps. You know you want to.

    Does Andrea wear a wig? Because the humidity in the pool area would wreck havoc on anyone's hair - hers doesn't move.

    will all those head and shoulders commercials on the live feed be reshot with vollmer now?
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    She probably wears Aqua Net, remember that--it was plastic.

    Oh, good, I'd forgotten about the 200IM. We should do it again.

    They've really gotta stop about the Lochte-Phelps race, it's getting old.

    The world will stop orbiting if they don't.

    I liked it better than those horrible gray raincoats everyone else is wearing.

    And I so wanted an interviewer to ask if she wants to comment on gun control.

    It's sort of hilarious to hear them talk about how smart Lochte is...

    Well, TG, when your immediate comparisons are Phelps, Andrea, and Rowdy....

    I'm an hour behind so I apologize if this seems old. Cynthia wasn't always as good as she is now. In 1984, her use of "made-up" "not real" words was pretty bad. She was also a little abrasive in her criticisms. She has grown through the years and found ways to express her expert opinions in better and more effective ways.

    By the way - She really learned during the triple cast in 1992. It was wonderful - like sitting in the stands with a friend who really knew diving.

    Yeah, but I'm pretty sure every time Lochte opens his mouth, a University of Florida degree gets devalued.
