    NBC Day 7 We're not in London anymore

    Atlanta replay of Mag 7 to start the broadcast. But a Khorkina sighting.

    Kerri Strug's voice always makes me laugh.

    I enjoyed that retrospective. I wasn't interested in gymnastics in 1996 so it was interesting to know more about the competition outside of Strug's vault.

    Hard to believe both of the Karolyis are only 69. I figured that Bela would be older.

    If I were going to have a girl crush, Destinee Hooker would be at the top of the list. She is gorgeous. And she could smash a volleyball in someone's face if you needed her to do so.

    Wow, the volleyball commentary is a little....unexpected. That KoolAid bit was kinda .

    Although I did think the guy was going somewhere else with that "red lips" remark.

    Yes, clearly those commentators didn't get the memo.

    The volleyball commentators are rooting for the Italians. Who aren't playing.

    Women's volleyball is so much easier to follow than men's.

    I wanted to play volleyball but never got over the running screaming off the court when the ball was going to smash me in the face. I've taught several women volleyball players in class over the years. Like most female scholarship athletes, they were good students. Too bad the male programs never got the same memo.

    Those shirts might make Loukas's parents the winner of the Most Embarrassing Parents award.

    I think she's worked hard to make it better. It used to be much worse than now. Good thing her talent wasn't acting.

    I always remember before the 1996 Olympics. I sort of kept track of Kerri. I thought she might have a chance to win/medal in the all-around that year as well as medal in an apparatus. I was always sad she didn't get a chance to compete in any of them. On the other hand, she is much more famous for that vault than she would have been with a gold medal in the All-around.

    To paraphrase the kid in that endlessly repeating movie commercial, she could only get better.

    But yes, she does sound better now.
