  • CD

    so proud!

    big fail with NBC…like someone else said–most everyone uses a DVR nowadays…and there’s now reports coming out that NBC isn’t showing certain footage at all of athletes from other countries tanking JUST to build up the drama of, “Will the US win?”

    and I despise those jackets the US athletes are wearing for the medal ceremonies–completely NOT patriotic & that USA patch looks like it came from a child’s sticker book
    not as bad as the outdoor events jackets though–they’re ORANGE!!!

  • emma

    Please put up a spoiler notice Jared. This is a gossip site – not a news site. You are ruining results for many folks. I avoid major new outlets and wouldn’t expect you to report on this. Don’t give yourself unwarranted power and spoil these events.

    And stop posting about Lana Del Rey and Kate Bosworth. We get it they are your friends – but again, do not deserve credit in the zeitgeist for constant attention.

  • Go Gab…

    Just awesome. Go Gabbie!

  • Ava

    I’m so glad she won. She is adorable and has such a positive energy. Go Gabby!

  • Tracy

  • African Girl

    Emma…Chill, you are on the www, there was NO WAY you coulda missed. I can’t believe people are still fighting the spoilers.

    If NBC didn’t decide to eff the broadcasting, we won’t have this problem. Epic Fail on their part.

  • Alexa

    She’s utterly fabulous. Congrats!

  • josh

    did you guys catch the commercial that aired after NBC finished reporting about Gabby Douglas being the 1st African-American to win gold in individual all -around? It was of a monkey with scattered teeth doing gymnastics. Look it up on YouTube! I was shocked and upset. Wow NBC, you will always be a coward! Racist!

  • Athena

    She is the first African-American woman to do this. History was made by her!

  • cindy

    Emme is right. There is nothing wrong people wanting JJ to put up a spoiler alert.

    @wow: #18

    Aliya Musatifina has a bad attitude, always has. She is ugly inside, and puts off negative vibes.

  • denise

    @Maria: #33

    Yep, she made history, the first Black to win the top gold in gymnastics.

  • Hilary

    @Julia: #9

    This thread is about our Gabby.
    Besides Aliyah gives off negative energy. She did not deserve any medal.

    As is usually the case criticizing a soulless machine for not having a soul seems rather pointless. Everything is formula and images of sensitivity do not happen because the corporation is sensitive. I chose to see these images as rare glimpses of truth of it all.
