    Mary has easily the coolest job of them all -- she's getting paid to do all this awesome stuff that I'd shell out massive $$ to do myself!

    Agree with both comments. He seemed quite serene in his reflections and mature, and he definitely seemed like a man who is fully satisfied with ending one chapter of his life and starting the next.

    Considering how much they've pissed on men's gymnastics at these Games, probably not.

    Can't really jinx something that already happened. They know the result when they record.

    I missed all BUT the medalists on FX as they went first. I thought that was OK since even abridged coverage would show them.

    If NBC completely chacks it...just wow. And I thought AA was a low.

    Seriously? They commentate over the taped event AFTER? If that's true, how lame of NBC.

    I thought they commentate for the event live, then edit for broadcast. But who knows?

    They do commentate during the live, then edit if they need to.

    I'm pretty sure for gymnastics they commentate live and it's just edited for the broadcast as needed.

    Oh and of course they'd show the 0.000 vault and subsequent injury Staying classy, NBC.

    During the qualifying one of them mentioned not making up the score...and the other said "but we havent seen that yet". That couldn't be done live. And Why would they put that in if it was editted later?

    Also, poor Canadian girl.

    No floor finals?

    I think what pisses me off more than anything in the NBC broadcast is their gymnastics coverage.

    This is the Canadian gymnastics moment NBC chooses to show!?!? Poor Ellie
    Sorry NBC didn't think you deserved to see her 2 1/2 twist through to triple twist on floor.

    I suspected McKayla did that vault bigger and better than any man, but that comparison with Uchimura's 2.5Y was incredible. The one and only thing worth praising about NBC's gym coverage was that incredible graphic!

    I really like the canadian uniform, very pretty, also the white one McKayla is wearing(I asume there is also a blue one?)

    I think they are showing the falls to emphasize what a splatfest the event was.
