My wife was so pissed at me yesterday that I told her that Douglas won the gold. I had a work thing so I was out drinking all night - she was all set to watch the Olympics and dropped the parting shot of "Didya hear that an American won the chicks gymnastics?" She's still pissed at me.
They're freakishly talented and all, but these gymnists being 15, freakishly small yet muscular are a stark contrast to most of these other Olympians. I wonder what they do when the 25 year old lithe Swedes and the like start the party in the Village.
On a related note, did anyone see the brouhaha NBC got started following this gold medal story?
Bob Costas is commenting on it from his anchor chair... all's right in the world, heartwarming story, etc., then they go to commercial. The commercial that they show - immediately after praising an African-American young gymnast - is of a monkey doing gymnastics.
