    But do her shoes have her name on them?

    He's only 5'4". I'm damn near a foot taller. The possibilities are endless......

    Butterfly looks like it would be exhausting to swim.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Even by gymnast standards, Sam has a mighty fine caboose for the papoose.
    Psh. Honestly Matry. After the number of times I've said "Sam" in the past month, do you really think you could get him away without my noticing? I plan to entice him with my Michigan Gymnastics t-shirt and my stories of watching him in Cliff Keen arena.

    And Orozco outscored Horton on vault at Olympic Trials, which is the last time they were both competing on it. They've both been inconsistent, and Horton was rather shaky in the trials; so I'm not sure it was such an obvious call beforehand.

    Of course, things look a lot clearer in retrospect. Horton's Olympic experience could and perhaps should have counted for something.

    No worries I knew I was taking a risk the second I opened my lap top!

    I'm thinking they'll show the rest of the MAG final between 11:30-11:50, and then we'll have another inane Mary C. touring England thing to close the night.

    So I tried to send a message about the nbcolympics site through their Contact Us link, and it doesn't work!

    I wanted to complain about the men's gymnastics feeds not being up at all.

    They just suck.

    Anyone else think Missy's parents are going to have even better seats for her next race now that she's won her first gold medal? They are too cute and I'm hoping for another upgrade for them!

    Oh, they showed quite a bit of his suffering two nights ago. After midnight, of course.

    That may have been a mercy chacking....you may want to go check some results for him right now.

    Everyone except China, Ukraine, and France deserved to be mercy chacked.

    Either they've been inundated with complaints, or it's "mysteriously broken" during the Olympics and their tech people can't fix it because they're all soooooooooo swamped with other stuff.

    You don't worry me TG. I can take you; I'm older and meaner and shorter, which makes me infinitely more vicious.

    I wish whoever did the swimming editing would do the gymnastics as well. They give a really good picture of the scope of the competition.

    I'd be more than happy to fly to London and nurse my boy back to health.
