I have to say that despite some of the video issues, enjoying the NBC stream much more. One, we are actually seeing more gymnasts and two, I am not getting horribly annoyed at the commentating.
LOL at the commentator going "only 27.9 for US on pommels, oh man!" That would be missing a score. Even 3 10's will score a 30!! LMAO

Orozco must have been worse than the PBP let on to get a 12.733. The US will be lucky to medal at this point.
I might have to start rooting for Ukraine to pull an upset.
Watching CCTV5, great image quality, but freezes often.
The Chinese commentators call out every single element, too bad I don't know any of these terms...
ETA: sorry, double post. Having connection issues.

FYI anyone watching in Ontario the gymnastics will be rebroadcasted from 7pm today & tomorrow.

ETA: My connection is almost as bad as the US men on Pommel Horse.

With the feed freezing, the results page not updating, FSU having issues, I should have slept in.
And to top it off, the US has decided they really don't want a medal after all.
Roll Tide, y'all!
Geez I think I jinxed FSU! : for team USA. GO GB!
My most glitchy site today is FSU ... though NBC is still freezy, I think because they keep trying to run commercials every 2-3 min. At some point in the broadcast the past few days, the constant commercials seems to stop.
Wow, that vault from Kristian Thomas was by far the best piece of gymnastics I've seen so far. Amazing!
What is happening to Orozco, he is very shaky today overall, reminds me of the AA final. It seems like if he goes very over concerned when it has to count, hope he calms his nerves
It will be very tough, a shame the americans threw their good scores at pommel in the qualifying and just got craptacular in the final, they lost like 2.5 points at the event today comparing
The Brits are bringing it tonight!
I really wanted the U.S to pull this off, but at this point i'd take anyone but China for the win, I mean those vault "scores" were a downright gift
So much for the US medal hopes.
if you install expatshield you can watch the bbc stream... no commercials at all and we're actually getting to see somebody other than the us!
I'm not sure they can come back for a bronze after PH.
