    NBC, just put a giant CGI "#2" on Maroney's leotard.

    They must be great in bed 'cuz the lead up to this vault is some long-assed foreplay.

    That was way cool and very informative. One shining moment for NBC.

    Poor Jake Dalton - completely chacked.

    I don't know whether NBC is doing this during the Olympics or not, but in the past it has actually been fairly common in U.S. broadcasts of international sports events to tape over events that already happened. Including figure skating. And not only NBC by any means.

    I wish NBC would air the paraolympics. They talk about how amazing it is to see Pistorius (and it is), but then they don't show so many of the amazing athletes there.

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    Crap. I'm watching this unspoiled (have I mentioned 80 times that I've been busy moving the past several days :p) and was rooting for old McKayla SharkEyes. (Speakimg of which, did you see how she didn't want to make eye contact with anyone afterward?)

    otoh I'd had a feeling Oscar didn't finish welltoday. But how effin cool was the thing between him and 1st place dude James.

    ita, they could do a highlight show each day
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I love Pistorius. What an athlete. I know a lot of people don't think he should've been there but I'm glad he was and that he did so well.

    Another coal medal for NBC and their complete chack of the men's floor exercise and pommel horse, which could have been aired instead of a 30 minute Michael Phelps interview and James Bond fluff.

    Feck you, NBC!

    there's still a chance an abbreviated version (winning routine for each, + louis smith) will be aired...

    or after midnight--or is that always the same as 8-11pm show? *sigh*

    if they weren't going to air, they could at least make the vid available instead of making us wait til after prime time broadcast (PH and FX) to upload the online FX/PH

    And lord knows we're not going to get any of the rings finals tomorrow night, since, to NBC, that event does not exist at these Olympics.

    I thought that, too. I think he was focusing too much on Gatlin and Blake and didn't realize Bolt was just running with the blinders on the last 30m.

    Agreed.


    Oh hey, men's gymnastics. That's a surprise.
