    ^I think we should just start a new one when the competition actually starts, and use this one as a sort of PBP of public sobbing.

    Well I am about to turn into a sobbing diva because I thought the first set of finals were today. I wanted to wake up and watch Maroney win gold! Oh well, tomorrow it is!

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    PLEASE let Alexander Shatilov get a medal in the floor final!!!

    So far Israel has not won a single medal in these games and a medal in gymnastics would be AMAZING!!!!!!

    Think I'm more excited for the event finals than I was for the AA. I am already sending up many prayers that Louis Smith can deliver one more pommel horse routine and Beth can hold it together on bars - although I also want Mustafina & Komova to come away with golds too. Perhaps I should hold out for a three way tie on bars!

    ^No ties at the Olympics!

    Maybe this time they'd seperate them by who has more rhinestones on their leotard. Or perhaps by who can sob the most in 60 seconds. Vika would be a shoo-in.

    Non, who has the best combination of sparkly tears and sequins . I'd rather see Mustafina win bars. I just prefer the flow and composition of her routine. Komova can try and hit beam on Tuesday.

    ^Well, as a Brit I feel wrong for saying this, but I prefer Mustafina on bars to even Beth. But Beth is Beth, and her routine is so exciting, so I'll be happy either way. UB should be a cracker!

    I hate that the UB is the Russians best event because I really want them AND Beth to win gold. But I love the event finals because there can be so many surprises and nothing is set in stone. I wish they were scheduled for today.

    Individuals have different ways of handling stress.
    We don't really have any idea of the pressure put on any of these people to "perform"/win medals.
    To call athletes divas/crybabies when they release their understandable feelings of disappointment is - in most cases - inappropriate, IMO,

    3. Oksana Chusovitina /GER/

    Floor

    1. Sandra Izbașa /ROU/

    3. Vanessa Ferrari /ITA
    4. Jordyn Wieber /USA/

    Uneven Bars

    1. Komova/Musty /RUS/
    2. Komova/Musty /RUS/
    3. Beth Tweddle /GBR/

    Beam

    1. Catalina Ponor /ROU/
    2. Viktoria Komova /RUS/
    3. Sui Lu/Deng Linlin/Ksenia Afanasyeva

    I was rooting hard for Tweddle prior to the games but Mustafina is simply gorgeous on bars. Can't decide, just no He Kexin please, talk about labored.

    Do Black or Rogers have a chance at a medal realistically? Or do they need everyone else in front of them to screw up royally? Maroney is a lock for gold, I'm just wondering if they can win either silver or bronze?

    They have the lowest D scores heading into the final (Black at 11.5, Rogers at 11.4), so they'll need a lot of help to make the podium.

    Izbasa may throw the Cheng she has been practicing if Maroney gives her an opening. She is the only one with enough difficulty to challenge if Maroney falls. I doubt she will go for it if Maroney lands both vaults cleanly, it wouldn't matter. Pena has the D score but shouldn't have nearly good enough execution to challenge Maroney unless Maroney has a disaster. Maroney just has to land her vaults and have nothing flukish happen.
