SuperNinjaToad: 12349876: ontariolightning: African and Carribean countries do better at track and field than anyone else

USA had the most golds and most total medals in athletics in 2008.

USA 9 7 9
Russia 6 5 7
Kenya 6 4 4
Jamaica 6 3 2
Ethiopia 4 1 2

Everyone else had 1 or 0 golds. China only had 2 bronze.

take the F out and if it's just the T, Jamaica will be up there.


There's a country based penis size joke there but I can't seem to grasp it

msupf: Gotta love the Cuban dad rocking the blazer Don Johnson style.

There's trouble on the rings tonight,
I can feel it in my bones.
I had a premonition,
That he should not go alone.
I knew the coach was loaded,
But I didn't think he'd flop.
Everything exploded,
And the scores began to drop.
So baby, here's your ticket,
Put the scoring in your hand.
Here's a little money now,
Do it just the way we planned.
You be cool for twenty events
And I'll pay you twenty grand.
I'm sorry it went down like this,
And someone had to lose,
It's the nature of the business,
It's the gymnast's blues.

what would be better? NBCs olympic coverage or a spinoff of 24 featuring Kim Bauer

Can we have a separate category for dumbest sports commentator, as opposed to overall worst? "Cause I'd like to nominate Tim McCarver for that one.

I just meant he would have just exploded trying to call Miracle on Ice. He and Joe Buck are polar opposites.

And Gus Johnson never pissed in anyone's shoes.

Anandamide: WhyteRaven74: heh I just checked NBC's facebook page and they're being bombarded by people complaining about the gymnastics coverage.

Good. Did NBC decide men's rings just don't exist? Every day of their coverage, the loathing, it grows.


The US doesn't have any contenders in the rings, and there aren't any embarrassing falls to show. Hence, the event does not exist.

Let me ask you this: Does an American stand a chance to medal in it during the individual event?

If no, you aren't seeing it.

Though I assumed they would show the Americans doing it tonight.

Yeah, and I wonder how quickly she and her partner will disappear once they go home. China is already raising eyebrows by refusing to acknowledge any athletes but gold medal winners.

msupf: So, did they mess up the dimensions of the pommel horse ever so slightly? Don't think I've ever seen so many fubars on it in one Olympics.


It's a popular event for fubars, especially when US gymnasts are involved. 4 years ago the US got a 13.750 and 12.775 in the team competition, and the all-around competition was decided in large part by Uchimura (who also fubar'ed the pommel in the team competition this year) getting a 13.275 on it.

The new scoring system they started 4 years ago also makes a difference -- really encourages people to push the difficulty up as much as they can, sometimes more than they can handle.
 
2012-08-01 11:53:20 PM  
Impressive he wins bronze without competing in the rings according to NBC. Poor kid probably could have gotten fold if he did the event.

Yes, it would we would have seen what the human body looks like after an aneurysm + an apoplexy + a heart attack + restless foot syndrome.

I wonder if they'll show the rings on Monday for the event final. It would be cool if they did a profile of Iovtchev (the 39-year-old Bulgarian who's in his 6th Olympics and took the last qualifying spot for the event.
