    Wow. I freaking LOVE watching this stuff. Wow. They did SO well. I try to keep my bias for the American gymnasts to a minimum and try to appreciate what the other girls do right, but I doubt I do a very good job of it. I'm proud of all those gymnasts, though.

    The adrenaline and nervousness and exhilaration they must feel when competing!

    This was the picture on some internet story on the victory. I can't figure it out. I think she's ENFP by the way, VI. Not based on THIS silly picture though.

    Man, Nastia was transcendent. Well-won. (With a balance beam possibly even better than her team all-around one.)

    (And the replays of the NBC commentator Bella (sp?) watching the routines never gets old. Especially the hitting of Bob Costas.)

    It's funny. I played sport at school but when I left, I stopped. And now when I read the newspaper every morning, I read every part, especially the comics, but I never read the Sports pages.

    But still, I thrill to gold medal winners on the front page of the Australian.

    Yes that was very frustrating.
    But at least justice was done in the end.
    I LOVE watching Bella Karolli watch the girls! He's fun!

    Reminds me of the Soviet bloc days when the East Germans (skaters and gymnasts) could do no wrong and were scored on what they were capable of doing rather than what they had done.

    Has anyone yet witnessed the travesty that is the boxing scoring system? I just watched about four matches, and I've come to the conclusion that the scoring is entirely arbitrary.

    I think she was possibly on the uneven bars in this pic, if that's what you can't figure out.
