    I like watching spoiled. It's a lot less stressful. I do have to give kudos to those who have remained unspoiled.

    I wonder if NBC will cover the badminton controversy.

    I am skeptical that the foundations get any or all the money back. I mean, we saw Japan hand over the money but did we see it returned? I rest my case!

    Yeah. It takes tremendous effort. You basically can't go online, turn on the tv, talk to anyone, or be around anyone. That's too much effort for me. I had the swimming results from today spoiled countless times.

    So tired of the Phelps Head & Shoulders commercial.

    True. We all know that NBC covers ALL the gymnastics, so if we didn't see it happen, it didn't happen.

    So do I. Honestly, I have to be watching an event live, or have no internet access to stay unspoiled. I have no will power at all. And I'm not certain I want any.

    The tan lines the diving girls sport are funny. It is like they all have a line across the hip from a string bikini, and then the diving suit is cut 4 inches higher.

    Also I love synchro diving. I was so excited when we got to go to winter nationals last year.

    Good for Mexico!

    ETA: Or did Espinosa win a medal in Beijing with someone else?
    Yes we have a pretty good diving synchro team, 2 silvers already and tomorrow we could win a third, but it will be a bit hard.

    And Paola won the bronze on the same event at Beijing, she teamed with Tatiana Ortiz back then but she switched partners with Alejandra Orozco just a year ago and look how far they came, Alejandra is just 15 years old

    I have a QUEST. So far, diving wins it for the most interesting audience.
    and you know that as soon as you find the penguin hats, those panda hats are going to the wall

    ABC news gave spoilers in the 6:30 report. However, I had to when they showed the popsicle stick swimmers (with head shot photos pasted on them) "swimming" because they can't show the actual footage of races.

    Now, now, mlp, don't get your shuttlecock in a bunch, or fast balls will be flying in your face. The word "synchronized diving" should be in there.

    OMG TG NOT THE DUCKIES AND PANDAS!!! But everyone knows kitties are in league with the Russians Chinese. Those aren't tears. They are the sweat of a thousand synchronized workers.

    It's a good thing the swimming men are hawt, otherwise, I'd be tired of that damn pool. But not Phelps not medaling. I could watch that over and over and over and over...maybe we could hear what the French think about Phelps not medaling?

    Exactly.

    And I don't just want to see it returned- I want to count the money given and the money given back. It just all seems sketchy to me to be waving money demanding a review of a call.
