You East Coasters dont fark it up this thread with spoilers for West Coasters we wont fark up this thread with spoilers for you. Just wait a few more hours until we see NBC's shiat to discuss it. Thats fair, right?

At least my local news made it clear they were going to tell results, and told us to turn off if we didn't want to know.
 
2012-07-31 08:06:36 PM  
Why does it matter if you know the results already, it's boring either way. At least I can find out without actually having to watch it.

So did ours. I'm wondering if NBC will manage another "tomorrow on the Today show we interview this winner!" ad just before the competition.

I'm wondering if you were not watching an NBC affiliate, and if they were intentionally "just reporting the news" so you'd be less inclined to watch NBC.

NPR did too. NBC seriously sucks balls though.

So is the platform much different from the board as far as skill goes? We took silver in the board, but didn't qualify for platform diving?

I don't know if the same teams do both events, or if they're different girls. Or maybe platform is that different from springboard, or maybe USA had a bad day.

Diving nowadays is basically just competing for silver and bronze.

I heart diving so much. These biatches are wearing their awesome pants.

Synchro looked good, splash was a little big though

I know all sports statistics from 1900 to today. I have memorabilia from every professional sports team ever. I AM SPORTS! YOU SUCK AT KNOWLEDGE.

Wait. Is this not sports radio?

Except, you know. Not...pants?
 
2012-07-31 08:27:12 PM  
What's the deal with the giant nicotine patches some of the divers wear?

Me too but I won't spoil it for anyone. (The chinese divers are probably going to win.)

I am GUESSING they are those icy hot type pads, or kines tape.

There is also a thread in the sports tab that's been running all day for you real time watchers.

They're bandages. The other night we figured out that if a Chinese diver messes up, coach takes a kidney.
 
2012-07-31 08:28:31 PM  
I can't even check email or local news without spoilers. Weak.
 
2012-07-31 08:28:36 PM  
It's a real struggle to not be a prick about watching it live. The BBC has their shiat together.

The Chinese mind-link seems to work well for group sports like team diving.

The Japanese don't like to lose.

Americans can be ungracious.

Brits like taking shots at the USA.

I would really like to sit in that post-diving-warm-up hot-tub for a while.

Any other spoilers, just ask.

So I take it that synchronized diving is the throwaway for the girls that aren't good enough or get too fat to compete in real diving. Then they just do the less technically challenging dives with their friend and bang! Olympic gold!

You only need one anyway. Besides, they need the others to replace a kidney when they beat a child too much for sucking at whatever sport they are forced to compete in.
 
2012-07-31 08:30:17 PM  
I am always amazed at the Chinese. They are so tiny and spinny. Makes me dizzy just looking.

"You are crap diver! We take what little of you is good and put in your replacement"

I'm guessing a giant birth control patch.

Why stop at two divers? Why not four? Or 12?
