    I'm about 40 minutes behind, so I have not gotten to the yet (and by , I mean the commentary). I must say, for fluff, I enjoyed the French commentators screaming Allllllllleeezzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!! And I'm sure they let out a good "now go away Amerikan pig-dogs, or I weeeel taunt you ze second time! (Jettez la vache, jettez la vache! Non, non, pas de vache, pas de vache! Jettez le douch-pop d'Americain! Quoi) Made me want to be French. Or maybe it made me just want to drink wine.

    A coworker of mine graduated from FSU (the fake one) and looooaaathes Locthe with the passion of a thousand angry Yuna ubers. Lochte is a Gator from U of F. I knew the results to this race at work (thank you NBC app!) so when I told her not only did Locthe NOT win, he didn't even medal, she let out this squeal of unholy joy.

    I told her she had the makings of a skating fan.

    Oh don't worry, we get to see Zou's overscored HB routine.

    Thanks gods we don't have to see those abominally overscored vaults again.

    Now, now, we don't speak about The Time of Unpleasantness during the War of Northern Aggression. We don't speak of that--it's vulgar. Like the Pommel Horse and Horton's cheerleader voice.

    We got to see a Uke and 2 Brits.

    Be grateful.
    They could be using this time to talk about Phelps.

    The night isn't over yet. That might just happen. This is PBC, after all.

    the commentary also went from "China hasn't been a contender" to "China is in gold medal position" in like 5 minutes.

    I think the coach (es) who decided Orozco should vault in team finals needs a good slap.

    Time for Orozco's closeup as he dissolves into tears. C'mon, NBC, show us just how cruel you are!

    So by my count we've seen 2/12 of China's gold medal routines so far.

    There are no words to describe the extent of NBC's suckiness.

    Deplorable coverage aside, I have to say that I am always, so, so amazed by what even the worst gymnasts are capable of. The level of precision, coordination and strength required for this sport is simply mind-boggling. It makes me feel like I'm watching superhuman beings (well, the Americans not so much right now )

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

    Oh you have no idea.

    I wonder if NBC even shows what happened at the end given that it had nothing to do with the US.

    I blame the pink arena. The men needed some macho black or something.

    Bedtime for me. Sore after a fall yesterday. Time to tape and mute.

    Night snarkers.

    For those who made the team, I'd go with Leyva.

    Two alternates, Chris Brooks and Alex Naddour are the hottest US guys imo.

    I'm being very charitable assuming we'll get maybe two more from rotations 5 and 6.
