    I like the referee, looming over them like a big ole dour-but-loveable Sam the Eagle from the muppets.

    Can I say how much I hate how they've ruined Tinkerbell's character by making her nice?

    The vast improvement in commentating for both sport's National Championships, World Championships, Olympic Trials (for gymnastics), and the Summer and Winter Olympics would be so incredible I can't find the words to describe it .
    I swear I'm gonna create that Facebook page when I get home.

    Right? Tink wasn't nice! She was a backstabbing ho-bag! She'd cut a bitch who tried to get in between her and Peter! Or have the bitch shot OUT OF THE SKY!

    It's sort of confusing that the US is wearing white and their back line player dude is wearing blue and Brazil is wearing blue and their back line player dude is wearing white. It keeps making me feel like someone has wandered to the wrong team.

    Is Brazil trying to throw this? (I'm not serious, but the way they're serving is a bit reminiscent of the badminton shenanigans.)

    What's the point of a line guy? I only understand volleyball if there's sand and Traenor/Walsh.

    Sorry, Ryan Lochte. I'm going to have to dump you for Matt Anderson.

    I like the light butt slapping going on after each point. It just makes me laugh.

    More Lochte for me! Just so long as he follows the rules about never talking. And not bringing his grill. Or any of his wardrobe, really. He won't need clothes.

    Yes, because when guys slap each other's ass, it's manly. When they haul a girl up by her ass, it's gay.

    Like that lift that Luca and Anna do. The snatch lift? (thanks weightlifting) Sooooo gay. It's important that we assign a sexuality to our sports in advance.

    I like his shoe collection, though. (And at least he has a few more brain cells than Phelps...)

    I'm actually almost positive that he has fewer brain cells than Phelps. Phelps, at least, is capable of tweeting without making me cringe at how a man who can't tell their/there/they're apart got a college degree.

    Oooh, dramatic fluff with Nastia!

    We're getting Gymnastics before 10pm. We might get to see more than 2 routines!

    Is it a draw that had them start on vault? I thought the top 6 always started on vault.

    They do. It's Tim. He just says things.
