  1. Oh, thank God. The last two guys stayed on. There were some scary falls going on. Also, I understand that one of the competitors is competing with a BROKEN WRIST. I cannot even imagine. Apparently, he just told the interviewer that it was incentive for him to stay on his board.
  2. The announcers really need to cool it with the superlatives. Every time they start going on and on about how great someone is, the poor guy falls off of the board. I'm happy for the skateboarders that they finally have their Olympic events, but I'm not sure I know enough to understand what makes one run better than another. Other than falling off, of course. I'm also used to seeing people doing these kinds of events wearing helmets, so it's making me nervous.
  3. Congratulations to Yui Ohashi for winning a GOLD MEDAL for the host country! Amazing, when she wasn't even considered a serious contender.
  4. I was so happy for him! But I wanted him to have someone to celebrate with. Someone give that guy a hug! What an amazing swim.
  5. I prefer Nastia to Tim, especially for the women's events. Tim sounds a bit like a know-it-all for women and his commentary is a bit cringey. I did prefer Nastia's prior look (i.e. the polo shirts) to the high-fashion looks and am wondering if Tara and Johnny's over-the-top apparel for the skating events has something to do with it. I can't believe she'd start wearing that look on her own.
  6. I enjoyed that more than I thought I would. I don't mind Daniel Gil as much as some do, although I think he's a bit much. I did like the lawyer ninja's ad and was happy to see him win the Power Tower. It really helped that the teens were just one category of competitors tonight, not completely dominant. I also liked tonight's teens - the trombone player is a badass, and Isaiah and Isabella Wilkerson were really awesome. She really is incredible. It also helped that Tianna Webberley made it through, as she is one of my favorites. I also thought the gentleman from Guam was amazing
  7. Oh, Michael Torres.... (SOB!) He is one of my favorites and I am so sad for him. SOOOOO delighted for Flex, though. And glad that Flip made it through. Yes, I couldn't decide if the fondness for the cat was the shtick, or if he's just one of those people who doesn't do grief publicly. I did like how unimpressed Hashbrown looked about the whole thing. The mentor angle makes the teen-invasion more interesting, although I did think the father "threatening" his son with more chores and duties if he didn't beat him was a bit much. I get that it's a show and that he was proba
  8. So smart. Apparently, there are markers in the track that got up to about 145 degrees (F).

    It really does. I'm comforted to think that he might actually retire this year, and we might get to see some fresh new faces. He's a brilliant gymnast - when he's on - and seems like a nice guy, but it is so, so hard to watch. And he keeps getting endless chances. Scores or no scores, the guy has never had a clean international meet. He was overscored here - fourth after falling off of the pommel? Really? But, for some reason, USA men's gymnastics never takes a chance on someone new. Which is why we are always "on the verge" of medaling, but hardly ever medal.

    Well, this is disappointing. I really feel so badly for the fourth guy, whoever he was, that should have gone instead of Sam.

    I'm just thrilled Yul made it. I wonder who he's talking to? ;)

    Oh, Sam. Again. Please dude, would you please, please, pleasure just retire now?
  13. It was absolutely ridiculous @emmawoodhouse. I may have yelled at my screen once or twice. I'm getting a bit tired of the incessant coverage of Allyson Felix, much as I love her. However, I must admit, I love her husband's shirt. ("My wife is faster than you.") Also, little Camryn is adorable. Jenna Prandini is a beast. I hope Raevyn Rogers brings it this weekend. I'm also very impressed with Matt Centrowitz's savvy.

    I don't mind Nastia's commentary. She's a lot better than Kathy Johnson Clarke was. Even Tim seemed better tonight. He really dialed it down. He tends to get overwrought during the men's competition. This was a great competition, honestly. We got to see a lot of the routines - much more than Nationals - and I'm really happy for Suni Lee, who I've always liked. At this point, it seems like the contest for the fourth spot appears to be between McKayla Skinner and Grace McCallum, but, of course, anything can happen tomorrow. It's going to be so tough for the person who doesn't

    Morgan is pure class. I'm so sad she is missing her Olympic dream. Thanks for the warning about the Simone show, y'all. I really like her, but between the commercials and the commentary, I am going to have to pace myself.
