I am disgusted by NBC's pathetic broadcasting of the games. I resent valuable broadcast time being eaten up by idiotic talking heads explaining inconsequential maps of twitter activity regarding the olympics. If I wanted to know what is going on with twitter, I would log on. I do not need Ryan Seacrest butting into the broadcast to tell me " 'joe jonas tweets 'the games are awesome' ". This is not relevant. This is not news. This is total BS and evidence NBC is being run by fourteen year olds.

        It is easier just to follow @ShawnJohnson on twitter. Waiting for this page to reload is silly. Posting tweets as a live blog is redundant.

        Would be nice if folks would respect those in different time zones enough to NOT post results before everyone has the chance to enjoy watching. Not much point nor fun in watching now . . . .
