Yes, I can confidently say that the US will win Gold AND Silver, just call it a hunch.

There was a Saudi woman in the Judo Competition. She was only a blue belt and lost, but it was cool none-the-less.

I know she's the first from Saudi Arabia, doubt she's the first Arab female runner though (especially if you consider Turkish athletes to be Arabian).

I somehow don't think that'll be a spoiler on this broadcast. Might get a 30-second Bob Costas mention with a video clip.

I can't believe Latvia beat our women's volleyball team.

For a second I thought you meant Misty May and Kerri Walsh, then I googled it and realized you didn't mean beach duos. I would've spit out my drink if they had lost.

I didn't even know Latvia had women, let alone women who play volleyball.

Now, I want to visit there and... Let via take it's course, if you catch my drift.

She (Sarah Attar) was born and and raised in the US her parents are from Saudi Arabia.

"Arabs" are the people, "Islam" is the religion that deals with covering the body. There's a lot of overlap but they aren't synonymous -- There are arab christians, for instance.

Splashometer -- I couldn't tell that was a big splash before your fancy technology! thanks NBC!

Turks aren't Arabs, they're Mongols. But you're right that she isn't the first Arab female runner. Nawal El Moutawakel won the 400 m hurdles gold medal back in 1984.

Just got in front of a TV. Guess for once they're holding off on the volleyball until later.

What will they do when the beach volleyball is over?

sadly, she's not a world class athlete, but her participation in the games will broaden horizons.

FTFT: Will we complain and make juvenile comments?

I am NOT a complainer, you doody head poopoo face.
 
2012-08-08 08:19:09 PM  
I like how the diving announcer insinuates the Chinese are not forthright about the age and weight of their divers...

Thursday: Interview one of the silver medalists
Friday: Interview the other silver medalist
Saturday: Interview one of the gold medalists
Sunday: Interview the other gold medalist

Rhythmic Gymnastics? Since it's circ de soleil with judging?

From the looks of my DVR guide, they're doing BMX in primetime the next 2 nights.

I like rhythmic gymnastics.

I'm thinking that USA basketball is getting to the point where it will dominate every broadcast on the days they play.

Saw some of the prelims earlier (aired around 4 PM ET)...BMX course looks great.

Katie Bell is 24? Doesn't look it there.
 
2012-08-08 08:27:42 PM  
I went to High School with Katie Bell. She's good people.
 
2012-08-08 08:27:44 PM  
Apparently, the only divers actually doing dives are American and Chinese, and a single Mexican diver. Every other diver is just assigned a random score without having to do anything.
 
2012-08-08 08:27:55 PM  
got to watch women's field hockey at the gym, such nice uniforms!
 
2012-08-08 08:28:04 PM  
Espinosa had some sexxxxy tan lines on her hips. Me likey.

/Hope she's 18

I'll probably stream the prelims since Julie Zetlin is a girl from the neighborhood.

Does this woman ever talk about anything but splashes?
 
2012-08-08 08:33:16 PM  
1 less hour of Prime Time Olympic coverage tonight, so we can see Matthew Perry's new show (which will probably be canceled after 4 episodes). HOORAY!!!!

It's been that way ever since I can remember. No splash = good

It's like sticking the landing in gymnastics.

This is the only thing the commentators can take notice of.

Really? NBC paid $6.02x1023 for the Olympics, and they're not going to show the Olympics? Just ... wow.
 
2012-08-08 08:39:04 PM  
I'm guessing that Jason Bourne is not, in fact, the WHOLE STORY
 
2012-08-08 08:39:27 PM  
Holy crap Paola Espinosa. Double want.
