What the shit, NBC? Why do you feel the need to have Tom Brokaw give us an 8th grade history lesson? What about showing some highlight packages or some interesting stuff that didn’t make prime time? We have to sit through all of the beach volleyball, and then we have these dopey bits with Carillo and Brokaw, treating London like it’s some exotic place.
My favorite thing about Missy Franklin is how high her hair is when she piles it all on top of her head. She must be about 6’6”, including topknot. I can’t watch any of the livestreams at work, so I’m catching up now, and because it cannot be noted enough - UGH, Andrea Kremer.
Uh, so it took 2 viewings of the USA swim team singing “call me maybe” to finally figure out who Ryan Lochte reminds me of, and it’s a really weird answer, but it’s an answer nonetheless - Gregory Smith. It’s not so much the looks as it’s the voice. Also, Rebecca Soni reminds me of Kristen Schaal. Also, goddamn, Missy Franklin.
There may have been a squeal that escaped my lips. But Bob Costas, guys. Bob Costas and his hair dye. I’m kind of embarrassed that I had a crush on him circa ‘96. Now I think he looks like a camel. A sanctimonious camel.
Aly Raisman and I share a first name, and therefore I am rooting for her. Also, she does her floor routine to Hava Nagila, and it is bouncy and wonderful. Nastia Liukin? Oh, girl.
Also, because Raisman is using her full first name, it means that the scoreboard cuts off part of her last name. I know how that goes!
I just… I have crushes on so many of them. Both sexes. Andrea Kremer, though? Still The Worst.
