I'm looking forward to this match. i have been enjoying Canada's run in this tournament but i think their story comes to an end tonight, hopefully they can win the bronze medal match. I'll have to watch a replay, can't stream at work.

Wow, Brazil takes the gold over the godless Chinese in the rings!

Ha, yeah not going out on much of a limb. How do you say "Do you believe in miracles" in Canadian? ;P

Brazil's anthem sounds a bit like an opera overture. Not saying that's bad, just different and kind of pretty.

I just know, know, KNOW deep in my heart some of her friends tell her she's the "sexy" one on the team. You can see that she thinks it in every one of her group pictures. I want to find those people, and face punch them.

An anagram of "Douglas" is "USA gold".

Gabby going for gold on the bars now.

Russia: 4 gold medals

Is it maybe because all the national anthems have been rescored by Philip Sheppard and recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra for the 2012 games?

xria: Is it maybe because all the national anthems have been rescored by Philip Sheppard and recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra for the 2012 games?


It's a product of the Brazilian anthem itself, other national anthems haven't sounded quite the way Brazil's does.

Russia wins women's uneven bars; godless Chinese get the silver; and Great Britain with the bronze.

Gabby Douglas ends up in eighth place.

Close. The US has dominated the historical matchup between the two countries with a record of 43-3-5.

Either way I can't wait to watch the game.

In gymnastics event finals, that's also known as 'dead farking last, the same dead last you would have gotten had you landed on your head'.

By the way, I mentioned in the live thread: load up synchronized swimming. Trust me. It is utterly a Fark sport.

Gratuitous leg shots of legal-age women in peak physical condition and some clearly provocative pose once every few routines.

They took eight to the final and Gabby came in 8th. I know nothing else.

It was the notorious "key wobble and a step on her landing"

You see that wobble? Look at that wobble! I said LOOK AT THAT WOBBLE!

Douglas looked ordinary on the uneven bars, especially in comparison to the competition. The Russian girl Mustafina aced her routine and deserved the gold.
 
2012-08-06 10:51:00 AM
She lost her momentum on the high bar and went backwards instead of forwards. That was enough to lose a ton of points.

She also grabbed the bar in the wrong position.

NBC will have a shiat hemorrhage tonight in primetime.

I am being literal. Their bodies will rupture, and then the gymnastics announcers will be in unspeakable pain as the top halves of their bodies explode and shiat issues forth from their torsos, covering the studio.

NBC will lose their deposit on the International Broadcast Center after that.

Covergirl model Marlen Esparza won her boxing match today and clinched a medal. And of course Gabby was gonna do horrible, I mean, look at that hair.

The B-group in the men's 105kg weight class- that's the lower-ranked lifters- are currently snatching 180kg.

That means the LOWER-ranked of these people are just up and flinging 397 pounds over their heads.

That is a fabulously sleazy moustache.

Gabby Douglas failed because her costume was not stars-and-stripey enough. I know because Fox News said so.

Aussie woman ran 100m hurdles in the time it would take me to run to the first one and climb over.

She is practiced from being chased by 'roos.

I don't know about that. She mostly seemed pissed. I mean, she was so far ahead of everybody else on that first vault that she could fall on her ass, post the second-lowest score of anyone on her second vault, and still damn near win the thing. If she had just landed that thing (not even well, just landed) she would have won by a full point. I'd be pissed, too.

I've been trying not to make fun of Tweddle ever since Athens.
