    They have not shown men's gymnastics yet. I don't have the patience to go unspoiled, but maybe you do.

    I'm not sure if this is geoblocked, but if anyone who can't get it that wants to be tortured by Elfi, Tim, and Al Fishwig on NBC's prime-time coverage, here's a link that's carrying it.

    I love diving and wish it was on more. If they showed as much diving as they do swimming I would be in heaven. I really do like swimming but I am already getting tired of it. This happens every Olympics but usually not quite so soon.

    I prefer diving too.


    You know what is really annoying about the commercial with Lochte swimming to London? There are actual open water swimmers competing, and they get no love at all.

    they should really be called out for this. I found out the result accidentally today (thanks weather.com ) but that was just really sloppy from NBC.

    Did NBC stick a camera and microphone next to every single parent in the stands?

    There was a Today segment advertised about Missy getting her first gold and meeting up with her parents after the victory.

    They showed a commercial for the today show featuring the eventual gold medallist! Really bad..I didn't really notice since I'd seen it live on Canadian TV already, I had to rewind to see what people were talking about....

    Serves NBC right for this stupid tape delay.

    Oh crap, Al is on to wreck gymnastics.

    Missy Franklin is very mature for 17, wellspoken.

    Is it me, or do the US gym costumes look like Spiderman squished by a soccer ball?

    Gymnastics will be on (if not already - I'm an hour behind). I suggest you look at the results. Then you can make an informed decision as to whether to watch or not.

    Twitter is freaking the eff out. I was on full media shut down all day because I couldn't watch swimming. Avoided the internet and twitter and started all conversations with my friends with "don't tell me about swimming." Even if they weren't the sort of people who would even know about swimming.

    Thank god I left the room during that commercial break because I'd be dying.

    I hope we get to see the hot French guys. At least a little.
