    NBC certainly knows how to pull the heart strings. First, show us the fluff about John helping with the mortgage and just wanting to help his parents find a better life. Then show us him totally messing up.

    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.
    Creating drama!

    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?

    Methinks he's completely overwhelmed by the enormity and intensity of the Olys. I so dearly hope he learns from the experience, stays healthy, and in Rio.

    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!

    Thanks. I know they had banned certain suits not too long ago but I've never seen any suit like that that covered the whole body, including the arms.

    It was fantastic! He's always been more of a supporting member through the years. He's medaled in tons of relays but I don't remember him ever winning Worlds in an individual event. So happy for him to finally do it in the Olympics!

    Soni!!! What a confidence boost. She's been sort of under-the-radar leading up to these Games, good for her staking her claim.

    I've given up on NBC. Their "prime time" coverage totally sucks, and their live internet coverage spend most of it's time buffering and showing the same commercial about a dog buying a new car over, and over...

    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.

    Someone needs to explain the dolphin kick/hand thing to me.
