The bigger breakout celebrity in gym: Blankie or Armpit?

How can Leyva have to climb over 3 gymnasts when there are only 2 gymnasts left in the competition now that Orosco's been eliminated?
I was discussing the gymnastics event with someone who would be NBC's target demographic: not a hard core fan, just likes to tune in for the Olympics. He was seriously confused with the stupid traffic signal scoring so it's not like that's only a fail for us hard core types.
I just love how NBC's only way of showing international gymnasts is to show how they screwed up to give an American a medal!!!
Men's gymnastics has been a mess so far this Olympics. Hopefully event finals will be cleaner.
This coverage is beyond tragic. Shame on NBC.
This whole comeback angle might have been more dramatic if they'd actually given a sense of how far behind Leyva was. Like, oh, at least maybe flash some standings?
And yeah I wanted to see Orosco on the events where he did better too.
I can see someone doing rings in the background, NBC! uh oh!
Urgh, I don't want to be reminded that Paul Hamm happened.
Are you kidding me- it seems like they aren't even going to show the mens gymnastics medal ceremony. Nice.
