    I'm behind and catching up with the NBC coverage, but I agree with the posts upthread, that who would have thought I'd ever be thankful to the Karolyis for anything, but they were certainly on the ball with Aly's beam, moreso than Mihai who seemed a bit unprepared with the enquiry. It was also interesting to see Aly's reaction when they raised her D-score and "it might be a tie" - after the way the last tiebreak worked out for her, she wasn't counting on anything this time!

    ETA - I can't even imagine how melodramatic the Boston NBC affiliate's news is going to be given their local girl's success today. It's already been insane so far, it will be interesting to see how they top it tonight.

    Nice interview, but Aly so didn't get the Carlton Fisk reference.
    Creating drama!

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

    I don't know how the high bar got away with a tie.

    In gymnastics, the IOC told Gymnastics federation in no uncertain terms they could no longer have ties. period.

    Give the gold and bronze to Ponor! So much for "Adverb" Ally.

    I'll bet Ponor wouldn't miss her adverb. Or I guess it should be Proposition Preposition Ponor for the alliteration value.

    P-bars is scheduled for the late nite show. The 1-5 AM show is just a repeat of the prime time show.

    I'm going to have sweet dreams of the men's vault and high bar finals. Best finals BY FAR. Epke "Zoolander" was freaking epic and Hambuchen was amazing.

    Very happy with Manzano's silver in the 1500m. He had an incredible finish. And drunk Ukhov is hot.

    She was too excited to worry about grammar.

    I liked the coverage tonight because there were so many women's events and I have found ---at least for this Olympics--that I am more interested in how the women are faring. So between gymnastics, track and beach volleyball I was a happy camper. I am paying attention to the men but for now it is "girl power" for me. They appear to be showing the guys after the package they put together for the girls.

    oh, they're showing Tim, Elfie and Al in a "studio" - is it fake or are they really in London, you think? Some of their commentary seems added in, but others (Tim's calling rings winner before it ended) are definitely not.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    ^ who's gonna give up an all expenses paid trip to the Olympics with press credentials in such an expensive city? They are there, although the Mystery Science Theater 3000 commentary is clearly recorded after the fact.

    Pretty sure they only did that for Gymnastics because they thought it encouraged cheating.

    Well, what's your problem with it? He's obviously not literally showing up to any of Aly's meets with a sign. He just thinks she's awesome.

    Didn't know that - it sounded like you were going to encourage him to make an ass out of himself. It's kinda what you said without using the word ass. People do actually do things like that.

    Of course I wasn't. When would he even have the opportunity to do that and why would I even be friends with someone like that. All I meant was that I think it is cute that he thinks she's awesome.
