    Mountain biking was shown on the same channel as rhythm gymnastics. It was an odd pairing. I'd imagine their was a lot of WTF from fans of both sports.

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

    Qio Bo has been way overscored in this. Is Daley plucking hairs off his legs?

    wow NBC is really milking the drama
    saw it earlier on BBC so i'm amused to see NBC's version as well. nice shot of the chinese team member with her hand over her heart when qiu dove. cynthia saying 'that's crazy' when they gave him 9.5 despite his head being too close to the platform.

    i think they should penalize that (as a general rule--not singling qiu out here) to discourage divers from taking unnecessary risks. diving is dangerous enough without this additional risk.

    did they show women's volleyball yet?

    Brits in the pool! Congrats to the medalists! Daley robbed of silver. If had done a harder dive last, he might have won!

    Daley and Daniel Radcliffe should be in a movie together.

    I think David Boudia was in complete shock, LOL He was incredible tonight and I am SO happy for him! That last dive was amazing. Congrats to Daley too for winning the bronze! Loved how he got thrown in the pool along with a group of other people, LOL

    On the last nite of comp the men's platform was the most suspenseful event of any I saw.

    Oh good. I was spared an interview with Jesus is my copilot.;-)[/goingtohell] Seriously,another good thing abot the winter games is not so many of those athletes feel compelled to share their religion.

    She should conduct the class and teach all of the other analysts how to do the job the right way. She's fantastic.

    so it's the heat that makes that happen, someone should study that
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Those American 4x400 girls are something, thought the WR was there, but whoever was last, was it SRR, might have slowed down a bit at the end?

    Unless they showed something earlier that I didn't see, isn't it odd that they just cut off the diving without hearing from either Daley or Boudia?

    Is Boudia going to be in studio with Bob?
