    This may have been posted already but here it is again. I really don't like the song, but this video of the U.S. swimming team singing "Call Me Maybe" is actually kind of fun to watch:

    The breast stroke kills me. They look like prairie dogs bobbing up out of their holes.

    NBC's coverage is so atrocious, I don't know how they're not correcting their stupidity. They keep spoiling their own coverage with their Today promos - promoting some medal winner before they've aired the event. And frankly, their men's gymnastics team finals coverage is making us mental.

    I also hate the evil Andreas (Joyce and Kramer) who are trying to get some sort of scoop by sticking a microphne in everyone's face the second they're done competing no matter what happened and asking the most obnoxious questions. Those 2 dumbfucks alone a seriously pitting a crimp on my viewing enjoyment.

    I know. It's horrible and they don't care one bit. Sigh. They have the next few Olympics too, don't they? Is there any legitimate place to give feedback? I haven't found anything yet.

    FRIGGIN YES- they aired a promo for Missy Johnson before her damn race.

    I also happened to be watching my local news (not NBC affiliated) early in the evening of Phelps first race - AND THEY ANNOUNCED HE DID NOT MEDAL in the crawl at the bottom of the screen. JEEEZ!!!!

    I have not followed mens gymnastics in years, but did they even show the rings in the qualifying rounds?? Or did I happen to miss that? Last night I fell asleep during pommel horse - so have no idea if they showed rings? (I see the post above about the older gymnast - so I know they were included?) Have rules changed about apparatus? Seriously - it's been years!

    The announcer kept saying 4 events are happening simultaneously - and I kept thinking - isn't it 5?

    It's six for men: pommel horse, vault, high bar, parallel bars, floor and rings.

    I also noticed how thick the U.S womens gymnasts necks are. Stocky with high sholders, and zero hips. I remember Keri Strug looking like that.

    On a side note, has anyone seen what Svetlana Khorkina looks like now? She's not as manly as she was back in the day.

    ^ I would've never recognized her, but I'm not sure the make-over wasn't a make-under.

    I never thought of Khorkina as manly - especially with that wispy body of hers. More like severe and humorless.

    I loved her. The diva of gymnastics. So dramatic and so competitive.

    And she was soo good on the uneven bars. Especially since she was considered tall for a gymnast.

    She gave up her spot at the 2000 olympic vault finals so that Zamolodchikova would have a chance to win a gold medal. Here she is cheering her on.

    Check out the legs of German Olympic sprint cyclist Robert Forstemann. I think his event starts on Thursday.
