  1. Traditionally, POC get voted off early in the game. And remember the season when ALL the POC were voted off first and were watching the others play (I think one would make it back?) It made for a very uncomfortable visual.
  2. Based on his comments, though, I think he is more obsessed with how little doctors address obesity and diet with THEIR PATIENTS. As he once noted on the show, medical students get almost no education on how diet affects everything from high blood pressure to diabetes.
  3. The US Men's Team is an embarrassment. A history of dumb mistakes, choking in clutch performances and a lot of hubris. No wonder Simone didn't want them on her tour. Let them live up to their potential and then they'll be the main attraction.
  4. They'll think, FINALLY! People of color get to dominate the game! The white jocks who often sail to the end go out first!
  5. I saw the gymnastics live every day on nbcolympics.com so I don't understand your concern, unless you thought it should have been shown on NBC in the morning?
  6. Dorinda tells The New York Times how she spends her Sundays: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/20/nyregion/dorinda-medley-real-housewives-nyc.html
  7. MaryLou Retton won all-around at 16; Nadia at 14, Gabby at 16, Sunisa at 18. Gymnasts need media training and realistic expectations as part of their training.
  8. If you live near a Wegmans, try it. Cooked shrimp with ginger and rice. Wonderful!
  9. He's not her biological dad and her parents aren't married. She adopted his last name but he has never legally adopted her. (NOT SURE THOSE REPORTS ARE TRUE.) Her mother may be upset about the situation ^ . She also may be shy and have a poor command of the English language.
  10. That's because she's going to do an interview with Oprah, probably prime time NBC.
  11. Well, Betty was a Karolyi girl so I guess that's why it seemed like Bela stomping around. And what was that awful music? If skaters can use better music (in terms of Olympic rights), so can gymnasts. I hate to think who she used before Betty! Boy, I remember the days of the great Russian choreography.
  12. It would be published in the Wall Street Journal and FORBES regardless of whether it was formally announced. Better to have the correct figures out there and use it as a recruiting tool.
  13. The choreography is just so AWFUL--techno elevator music, grim determined demeanor and moves that are downright ugly. We're not expecting them to do a grand jete, but some of the moves are so ugly they could be easily improved. You only need to look at figure skating, where a male who skates "like an oak tree with blades" (my favorite skating review quote EVER) improves immediately with choreography from a decent choreographer. It's ONE event and geez, there are no compulsory routines to take up your time.
  14. To those who don't want to get up early, nbcolympics.com offers the replay VERY QUICKLY. This morning, the replay was available as of 7:17 am EST.
  15. Simone, like Diana, knows that media coverage will be the only way she can fill those $40+ seats for her Gold Over America Tour. The last thing she would want would be a media blackout. if you don't want a camera on you, there are MANY ways to deal with it. 1) Put a towel over your head. Many male gymnasts do that as they sit in their chairs and lean forward. 2) Have your coach shield you. 3) Leave the area. Olga Korbut BECAME famous because she cried at the 1972 Olympics. Her photo was on Page 1. She went on international tours and became the world's sports d
  16. Boy, I guess the men's events aren't getting any primetime love!
  17. They'll re-run it overnight at 2 am EST and the entire competition is on nbcolympics.com!
  18. NBC did. They said the colors designate the appropriate scores BASED ON (RECENT) COMPETITIONS. I hope folks here are satisfied with tonight's coverage ... lots of routines from INTERNATIONAL gymnasts!! It's nice too when everyone does well.
  19. first WOMEN'S gymnastics medal. Brazil won 3 medals in men's gymnastics in 2016.
  20. Actually, the Russians HAVE lobbied for music for men for several years. Asian countries have resisted. My theory is that they expect that the Russians' familiarity and long history with ballet and performance music would give them a natural advantage.
  21. Can't you watch it on nbcolympics.com? I'm watching it live now, and could see it later this morning if I chose. The replays are available pretty quickly...
  22. Figure skating has had the same debate and has worked to give added value to the artistic moves and the choreographic sequences. As a result, gorgeous skaters like Jason Brown can realistically compete at the top level and the Olympic champion has a decently choreographed program. As for gymnastics, I have no idea why the Olympic team DOESN'T HIRE SOME OF THE COLLEGE CHOREOGRAPHERS. UCLA has always had some wonderful, fun programs that could easily be adapted for the Olympic scene.
  23. I get my coffee every morning and sit down on the couch and watch the ENTIRE competition LIVE on nbcolympics.com! I've really enjoyed it. It is really easy to use, unlike Peacock which I see hear is difficult to navigate.
  24. People have been complaining about NBC's coverage since the dud TripleCast in 1992! But I give NBC a pass this year: they couldn't even promote it properly since no one even knew if it would be canceled. I personally think it's been wonderful to see real athletic competitions again in these dark times.
