Does Mustafina have a weird bald spot behind her left (?) ear?
So completely shallow, but Mustafina has such beautiful, expressive eyes.
My mom, btw, is also cursing the gymnasts.

Woah!, Komova nearly sits on her dismount!
((((Russia)))) Seeing it is even worse than it was just to read about it earlier.
if only komova could move with authority and confidence for 4 routines in a row, she'd be unbeatable
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
Why is it necessary for the gymnastics "experts" to talk non stop and point out errors during the routine? Especially the big errors - as if the viewers are too stupid to notice them!
They repeat everything in slow motion and that is a perfect time for criticism.
I know they do it in skating too - just my frustration watching the broadcast.
Omg that quote from Carly Patterson. I never knew she said that, that's great!
Mustafina and Komova on, and after, the beam
I really, really, really want one of them to say "the balance beam is slippery."
Maroney staring down her own team, and is all, look bitches, y'all mess up my perfect, fabulous vault and lose me my medal, I will find you in your sleep and cut you. Slowly. While Marta watches.
Well, save your tears... you'll likely need them for the rest of the week.
Maroney has such an exotic look . . . like she's part enchantress/part black widow. She could charm a man with her beauty and then eat him alive! LOL!
Did poor Bek have to go for therapy or something?
Adelina Sotnikova defeated the curse of Esta She is indeed the Greatest Of All Time!
I guess all of the other teams have just faded away. There is only the US and Russa....
Not a surprise but still sucks that NBC has forgotten any other country exists. No Romanian on FX or the good Chinese beam routine.
