Flash photography.


... wow, really? I guess I figured everyone was flashing cameras there all the time. Wouldn't mind going back and finding footage of that. Interesting. From the crowd, or from a pro?

Earguy: Whoa. Swishy walk.



It's diving. It's the male equivalent of women's judo.

/yes, they're all farking each other.

The crowd. I saw the footage earlier....there was a TON of flash.

Still...you think they would be USED to it....

This was probably Brokaw's last chance to fellate the "greatest generation" in front of a national audience, so he made the most of it.

Too far from the platform. Too close to the platform. This lady is never happy.

Just in, not up to live yet, so starting at the top of the thread. I'd just like to point out that thanks to the magic of DVR we just watched the 8 hours of morning coverage in Also, the name overlay on Tom Daley's opening dive made him look naked. We suck so bad at TV coverage.
\Shutting up now until he's caught up to live.

From everyone. He's the home favourite.

Flash photography isn't allowed during dives. There's a clearly distracting barrage of light, right at eye level as he dives.

Ah, thanks for the info. I didn't realize it was all banned, for some reason I thought I could see flashes whenever anyone was diving but I'm sure if I go back and actually look, I was imagining it. Thanks!

Here's a link for anyone interested, she found a box of condoms in the car.

The poor silver Chinese diver knows he's being locked back in The Box for a month when he gets home.

They need to show the medal ceremony so we can get the Qiu Bo Is Not Impressed meme going.
 
2012-08-11 10:45:48 PM
I'm happy Daley won a medal. He's still young and he'll be back. I'm happier Boudia get the gold!

Hot Russian high jumper

Earguy: Now That's What I Call a Taco!: OchoCinco was arrested tonight for head butting his wife

his wife found a receipt for a box of condoms in the car. A fight ensued and escalated when they got to their Davie home. Once in the driveway, Evelyn Lozada said Johnson head-butted her. Johnson told police she leaned forward and they hit heads accidentally


At least he's practicing safe adultery.

What China does in diving is utterly amazing...but they REALLY need to knock it off.

From a mother hiding the fact that a divers grandparents have died, AND hiding her own breast cancer...to crying over a SILVER medal....

These games IMO are about the true celebration of sport, and the USA is guilty here as well. The Dream Team in Basketball...I would LOVE to see a Miracle type performance.

More like Anna CHICKarova, amirite?

The dream team isn't even close to the fact that if a diver gets silver the government kills their family.
