    I take back my comment about balanced commentary.

    "But she (Mustafina) is not capable of doing this vault (Amanar)"

    yeah, this might be a good time to mention her torn ACL... which you would have done in a heartbeat if it was a US gymnast.

    So...out of curiosity, are Leyva and Le Clos the only athletes in the Games that have fathers?

    I'm so tired of this wanna-be Hunger Games knock-off.

    I was thinking about this when Clary was pulling his "I'm not famous so I'll talk shit about Michael" thing. Michael was at Michigan when Clary trained with him so he was on his way to eight gold medals at the time. Whatever he did obviously worked. I was thinking that, for someone with ADHD like Phelps, training the way that someone without ADHD trains might be a totally wrong approach.

    That's a good point. I didn't even think of that when he made the comment. I just thought he was a douche for thinking he was "exposing" Phelps when no one really gives a sh*t how he trains, just what he puts out in competition.

    If I wasn't happy for Soni in her own right, I'd be happy that her winning meant we got more shots of Ricky.

    Soni has just built and built since Beijing. Each year a little faster, unbelievable swim.

    Well, they've had, what, eight hours now? So THAT's why NBC won't air anything live: so AT&T can have their silly commercials.

    Soni is awesome. I felt bad for her yesterday because she didn't save it for the big game. Guess that wasn't necessary.

    This is pre-recorded...they've actually had hours!

    That one was a little more believable than the gymnastics one...that girl had already looked too old to be make it at the highest levels in gymnastics.

    Kind of funny that Chow was also up there chalking the bars before Aly's routine.

    I'm not unaware of that. But that is still a short time to shoot and edit a commercial.

    Aly's bars were tentative, bent leg and one foot pointed.

    Vika really does look older here. The bangs help but did she grow?
