    We mock these gymnasts for crying but if you look at what they are doing it must take some serious mental fortitude to be able to try to do those routines infront of the World.

    Watching the beam finals now.......How does Raisman's coach not understand the reason for the inquiry? He asked the Karolyis, "For what?"

    You'd think the coach would be on top of it.

    Mexico in the 2014 WC final? Very very unlikely.

    Don't worry Cowboy.....maybe at the next summer Olympics they'll have more trampoline events. And you've always got the Winter Olympics. Living up here in Calgary right now ('cuz, you know, most real Canadians would still be chunking rocks and spears at each other without a few Texans to show them how to produce cattle and hydrocarbons), it's been an absolute joy to watch local news to hear all the whining about that soccer match.

    You know, it took one of our players about seven times of pointing out Canada's cheating before the ref finally blew the whistle.

    Olympic gymnastics are much more important to gymnast than the NBA dunk contest. One is the pinnacle of their sport the other is a side show.
