How does the Chinese girl get the same score on balance been of the US girl when she obviously screwed up more?

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

The commentator kept asking that too. This is why anything involving judges tends to rub people the wrong way. It's impossible to always get right.

Thankfully it ended up not mattering in the end. Gold and silver to the U.S., baby! Their two floor exercises looked about as perfect to my untrained eye as possible. Congrats to Liukin and Johnson!

Man I normally don't give a crap about gymnastics and I still didn't so far in the Olympics this year, but I gotta say last night I was hooked. Awesome that we got gold and silver despite the bad scores.

Me too, but both the men's and women's gymnastics have been really good to watch. I still can't believe the stuff these guys can do on the still rings. My shoulders would explode if I even thought of trying that.

Gives me a whole new respect for Vince Vaughn.

If you guys think the judging is bad now, just wait til the Olympics are in Russia in 2014! I wonder what Putin will offer the judges..

On Comcast cable they've been running the lesser popular sports on the UHD channel which is Universal HD. Boxing has been on a bunch on that lately.

You still might get Universal HD, I think it's basically a NBC programmed channel that they put content on from time to time.

Thanks, I'll check it out. Another part of the problem for me is that I'm working traditional 9-5 work hours. So I am unable to watch the off-hour stuff like whatever's shown after midnight or during the day.

I love that they have machines to groom the sand between sets in beach volleyball. I also love that these machines are called Sandbonis.
