    Every night. The first couple of nights, my head would pop up when Scott Pelle would say "Good evening," because I thought we were getting some kind of breaking news.

    I'm not in a battleground state, so there have only been a few political ads.

    I've been getting so many political ads that it makes me not want to vote for anyone!

    Those bandaid poor-man's tattoo things make me laugh. This would be way more interesting if there were hawt men or two of them at the same time.

    So, back to gymnastics--I'll be Strug was relieved when the Hamms burst onto the season.

    And like any good compeition, it boils down to Russia v. US for the worst jackets of the competition. The US's is a horrible, uninspiring grey, but the cut is beautiful. The Russians' are at least colorful, but the fit and style is horrendous.

    You know, for all the ruckus about the British uniforms, they are my favorites.

    I especially liked the men's gymnastics tops and the diving swimsuits.

    I think Prancer is at Ground Zero for political ads. {{{Prancer}}}

    Of course, we got some Republican who is in a three way race for some seat (not sure if it's state or national) Why do I do not know what race he is in? All his ads mention Obama. So apparently he's delusional and thinks he's running for President, or something.

    Since I'm in a battleground state, I get political ads at nearly every break.

    Obama's ads feature Obama and are approved by him. The other ads are rarely FOR Romney, but usually against Obama, and are always paid for by someone other than the Romney campaign (which includes the one with Kristi Y.).

    This is true of the political ads all the time, BTW, not just during the Olys. I find that really interesting and haven't yet figured out what the strategy is here. I'm surprised there isn't more Romney by Romney for Romney.

    Our station has one night Romney, the next night Obama. We get maybe two a night.

    I love the British uniforms with the little flag on the lower back on the diving outfits, like a patriotic tramp stamp (Rule Chavtannia? ).

    Not to derail the thread into PI territory, but I believe that Obama's campaign has raised more money than Romney's but Romney has more super-PACs paying for ads for him.

    Awww, Missy makes me happy. There is joy in her swimming (yes, I am aware of the supidity of that comment but am making it anyway). I hope Missy's the next Phelps if for no other reason than she's coherent.

    Track and Field!!!!!
