Somehow the fluff (and Matry's link ) had the opposite effect for Leyva. I just want to run off with that stupid towel of his.
I can't even conceive how much it'd suck to be watching this atrocious AA coverage for the first time. There's zero sense of competition compared to BBC/CBC.
Still watching behind, this fluff on Magnussen saying he's going to back it up is sort of funny knowing how it ends.
I have been waiting all night to see this swim.
There have been a number of articles about John in the NY papers, and he really seems like a sincerely nice, humble guy. I'm disappointed for him, but I hope he will be able to focus on everything he's accomplished so far. Just coming back from his injury to make the team is impressive.

John is only 19. I hope he let's this motivate him instead of crushing him.
How cute is Nathan Adrian's reaction of total shock when he finds out he won?
Okay, Ryan and Michael high five-ing over Nathan's win is my new favorite thing ever.
And now I will go to bed. Must actually sleep before work!
Soni!!! What a confidence boost. She's been sort of under-the-radar leading up to these Games, good for her staking her claim.
Thanks heavens for Expat Shield/BBC coverage. The live coverage of the men's AA this morning was great!

I think after 11pm we are out of prime time and getting close to late night (on the east coast).
NBC really should start the TAPED!!! coverage earlier; this is getting ridiculous for those that have to be somewhere the next morning.
ETA: Never mind. I see there's a whole thread answering my question.
Someone needs to explain the dolphin kick/hand thing to me.

le clos is adorable, they can show fluff on him all they want
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
