    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    AKA half the vault field, and clips of the men's rings medalists. Or maybe just the vault final. What are the rings, again?

    Yeah, but after what she did on beam during the AA, I really hope she hits her beam routine.

    There really does seem to be some rule against showing rings on NBC.

    The men's vault will give them an opportunity to talk about how shocking Maroney's vault was.

    So I didn't watch the NBC broadcast tonight but did they do anything further to turn audiences off of Mustafina? My roommates watching the broadcast say they can't stand her because she seems mean, unsportsmanlike, etc. I think they're being irrational lol.

    Congrats again to the deserving UB champ!!!

    They showed Aliya smiling when Gabby made the mistake on bars, with Al's not-so-subtle "this is while Gabby is still doing her routine!" As if other gymnasts wouldn't have smiled.

    True. And if an American man even got on the podium in rings, hell would also freeze over. It hasn't happened at an Olympics since Mitch Gaylord got the bronze in 1984 (which was boycotted). Heck, I'm not sure the U.S. men have even been on a Worlds podium in rings since Paul O'Neill in the 1990s.

    Glad I don't see NBC anymore since last thursday... I could not stand the fluff-festival their primetime is now, after getting live events in Beijing with so zero to very few fluff this time in London is ugly

    Glad also that for Rio 2016 the time zone difference will be very very friendly and will allow most likely to schedule swimming, gymnastics and athletics at the NBC primetime lineup, so that will allow to follow SPORTS and not fluff (or at least less of it)

    Are you referencing Carly Patterson's infamous viewing of the Romanian wipe-out on FX from 2003 Worlds? Talk about a moment that had me laughing for hours afterwards.

    I totally wish Gabby were snarky enough to do that.
    I will always remember Kristy Wirtz's reply to this sort of canned "What happened out there" question asked of her moments after coming off the ice. Her reply? "I fell on my ass".

    Is the vault not going to be until the late-night show? Trying to manage my time.

    I was rooting for Romania, but that was still the one of the funniest effing things I'd ever seen.

    What is this strange gymnastics apparatus NBC is showing? They've not shown this before.
