Thanks for ruining it for me. :wink

I picked her in the poll about this year's sweetheart...I am GOOD. :)

I didn't realize she is a Texan! *gasp!*

Oh well, she's still okay I guess... :wink

Would it have killed you to title the thread so that people didn't have to find out the results in the title.:gun
I have been avoiding websites and news programs all week long so that I could actually see the Olympics and enjoy who wins when I watch it at night. Thanks for spoiling it. You ruined my whole day.

Please be considerate tomorrow.http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/23/23_31_4.gif

Jim did it the right way with his thread today...thanks bro :)

Lol, I like knowing what's going to happen. I like watching with less stress...and if they're going to lose, I don't watch at all.:)

In the future, just put "Spoiler: Gymnastics" or whatever as the title.

Though I don't care, a lot of people don't want to see the results before watching.

Damn is she hot or what, but she's only 4'9 whoa.

Carly Patterson is why the Olympics are awesome. Performances like hers, Paul Hamm's and Michael Phelps are the reason why the Olympics are still special. The Dream Team thing tends to make people cynical but watching these athletes give there all and care about their country is truly enjoyable to watch.

Very well said!
And if you manage to take off your USA, Slovenia, NZ or whatever hat (which is easier in competition where your country is not participating) watching other athlets giving their best is really inspiring and does make you forget for a little while in what poor state the world is otherwise.

Damn is she hot or what, but she's only 4'9 whoa.

It's a trip, all those gymnasts are short. Including the men.

There's one guy on the US team, Jason Gatson, he looks like a football player...a huge brute...one of the announcers said he was like the Hercules of the male gymnasts...he is 5'8 160lbs. I wouldn't say he's short but he looks freaking huge out there compared to the others.

The Romanian dude that caught the huge air on the vault, he is ripped, he looks like he could play the terminator, one of the announcers said he was musclebound...he is 5'4 135lbs.

That hard Russian chick, Svetlana, the one who said the Gold Medal was more important to her than mothering her own child..she looks like a giraffe or something out there compared to the other gymnasts, like she is almost too big for the equipment, she is only 5'5. Again, I don't think she's really short for a female, but she's huge compared to the other gymnasts.

Patterson is 4'9 yet she looks fairly big compared to some of the other girls. There was one chinese girl that actually looked small compared to the others, I don't remember her name but she must be about 3 feet tall to look short compared to Patterson.

She wants to be a dentist. :smokin2

One thing, she is going to be a millionair now, will she bust her ass studying in school, now that she is going to be loaded? :)

I agree Slomo, well said.

I apologize for giving the results in the title of this thread. I probably won't do it again.
