I'm glued to the edge of my seat.

I'm so sad for Morgan Hamm (my baby!) and that guy everyone was cheering for. The one that made the judges double check on the high bar.

Those judges suck.

Wow... they need a better system for judging; I was gobsmacked when the night was over! All I can [eloquently] say is... WTF?!

What about the vault, the last guy fell.... he fell... there is NO WAY he should have gotten a bronze medal.... there is some messed up judging going on...

I loved when the spectators were flipping out and yelling and booing...

especially the guy who gave the finger.

That's the truth and end of dicussion.

I would have been the person who would toss a shoe at the judges.

Oh. My. Goodness...I was watching the whole thing too. I couldn't believe that the judges would change a score because of an audience reaction! If that was the case, then whenever the audience felt compelled to riot, the judges would just go ahead and rescore everything! WTF is that?! Although I do agree that there was something screwy going on with the judging that night...I still can figure out how Paul got a higher score than the Russian dude...
