    So I watched this commercial for the Mag 7 being on tomorrow and I can't exactly figure out what it means - were they saying that they would be on the NBC Olympic Prime Time broadcast or on something else? It didn't seem super clear to me, but maybe it's because I'm dumb enough to think that NBC would show actual sports during the Olympic broadcast and put a replay of 16 years ago on a different show.

    A lot of stuff with Mustafina and her coach was that of a petulant daughter angle. Like a problem child.

    I think they are showing interviews with the Mag 7, and perhaps a retrospective of Atlanta.

    I had to defend Mustafina and Komova to my FB friends who are experts all of a sudden.

    I take back (somewhat) what I said about Komova. She really did have heavy pressure on her shoulders and I believe she felt she had the Soviet legacy to defend. It's quite clear through her gymnastics that she has a respect for classic gymnastics that's missing now.

    Maroney comes across to me as a competitor who isn't intimidated by "pressure", the media, and having all eyes on her. She's confident in her abilities, and it shows. Musty OTOH, both in AA and especially in the very first rotation of team finals, looked like she was about to burst into tears at any moment. I can understand that when it became obvious she wasn't going to win, but at the beginning of the competition?? When I watched Komova, the word that came to mind was "fragile", and neither one of them had an air that screamed confidence and assertiveness. Maroney has that, and I think she's going to become the USA's next double OGM come the vault final.

    I wanted the Russians to win and I'm sad they didn't. I didn't want just one style of gymnastics to succeed. I wanted different styles to shine. But then I have to remember Liukin's style did have its day 4 years ago, so I can't complain too much.

    Oh that FX of Komova, so beautiful. I prefer her over the rest but I guess stepping all the way off on the vault kinda did it - they could have been even more harsh, but ah well.

    Gabby, wow, way to attack it when it counts. 2 golds, incredible.

    Ekk, losing a tie breaker like that hurts. I was rooting for Mustafina, but it seems like a weird way to do it.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Over 1000, thread closed.

    If another thread gets rolling, could people please take a few deep breaths before posting?
