Has anyone else been watching the female gymnastics? Anyone else think the American girls getting robbed just a bit? I just don't get why, even when the Chinese girls screw up on their routine and landings and they still score as high or better. It's getting just out of hand. It's just stupid.

I'm already happy with the outcome in soccer with Argentina dumping Brazil 3-0, sending the "always smiling" Ronaldinho home with a subdued frown..

Then again they have unfinished business with Nigeria. Revenge for 1996's final and to complete the defense of their last gold. Messi could use a medal to polish that matches Tevez before him.

I finally got caught up on it last night, there were some events I had problems with the judging, but the system's very heavily weighted in favor of difficulty so not much you can do. If you try the harder stuff you can mess up and take a bigger hit in deductions & still come out ahead.

She was cruising, but in a sport that fast it doesn't take much to screw it up completely. Felt really bad for her, I thought for sure she'd win.

Mission accomplished! Two soccer golds in a row for Argentina.
