    I liked Ponor's BB - awesome to see a 24 year old at this competition.
    UGHHHHH why are we getting fluff about Wieber not making it to the AA when we could be watching other routines?
    AND WHY ARE THEY TELLING US HOW A ROUTINE SCORED WHILE WE'RE STILL WATCHING IT????? Just let us watch and then tell us whether it scored well or not, goddammit!

    I feel like I should be taking a shot for every time that NBC mentions Jo's heartbreak from two nights ago. But on a more serious note, shame on them for not moving forward, as she's obviously trying to do!

    16.233!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY DOUCHEYPOP!!!!!!!!!! Dude. If EVER there deserved to be a perfect score, THAT WAS IT.
    Ah man. I just love reading these reactions so much, just as much as that vault. The girl isn't a real person, I think she's a McMartian. You can't type an appropriate reaction to do it justice!

    Maroney isn't there just for the vault: She stares down the competition.

    LUV huh for that. The best at it since Witt.

    She was rather giddy, then went back into Shannon the super commentator mode. She really has been an outstanding commentator who gets very excited for great gym no matter the country.

    WHY do they keep taunting us with Paint it Black but never let us see the routine.

    Errr...why is Jordyn doing UB in the first place?

    I've been drying my hair during the commercials. I just realized I've been getting it all wrong! I should be drying during the commentary!

    Who else would do it? Aly's bars are just got good. Maroney has lovely form but doesn't have the difficulty and is totally unreliable at this point. By process of elimination...

    I wonder if all the team usa girls realize they are only there to help Jordyn to a gold medal.

    I'm so glad I'm not watching this. Thank goodness I stayed home today and watched it live without commentary.

    This would drive me nuts.

    Ross doesn't have the pizzazz of the other gals, but she's graceful, elegant, and solid. Al, take your yellow-hanky code bullsh!t and stuff it.

    Right? I'm sure a lot of people in the US love Jordyn now because they felt for her on Sunday. But I don't think that anyone is rooting for them to just get Jo a gold medal. Everyone is rooting for them to get themselves a gold medal.

    I know! I think everyone, including Jordyn, moved on except NBC. They must've crapped in their pants when she didn't make the AA. They couldn't spin her as the "All American Sweetheart" anymore (although they're still trying).

    I so want Gabby Douglas to win the AA and get $$$$$ in endorsements.

    All of them are very pretty so hopefully, they'll all make enough money to pay back part of the cost of getting them where they are.
