    Ha! I briefly wondered why the name sounded familiar. that NBC chacked the other Czech hurdler, Hejnova's race. I really like her!

    I really liked the piece about Greenwich and longitude. There is a good book about Harrison and his clocks here - http://www.amazon.com/Longitude-Geni...ison+longitude

    OK - so when all of you are tuning out for a while, what are you tuning into instead?

    NBC is trying to convince us that the 400M hurdle winner is really an American. We'll take the credit.
    Creating drama!

    God, yes. I will be glad when gymnastics is over just so I never have to hear it again.

    Switching athletics and swimming would be genius. I'm always frantic trying to keep up with everything the first week and then bored the second week.

    I managed to get distracted during the gabby fluff and missed the start of He. Oh sure, now that they're finally playing gymnastics. Thank goodness for DVR.

    Komova looks like the sad heroine of some tragic Hans Christian Anderson short story.

    I like the song, just not how much they've chopped it up and overplayed the pieces of it!

    So did they take off for Komova hitting the bar? This is when I want to see deductions. I assume so, since she would have had around 8 tenths in deductions without the hit. That is actually too little (for that routine) but I don't see 1.3 in deductions without something being taken for hitting the bar. They probably took it easy on the rest of her deductions, though.

    I saw that. I was in NB the week before the Olympics and I saw so many mentions of Missy being from NS! Each time I'd go and and make a snide comment, and then my Canadian husband would go .
