    Gabby Douglas qualified to the team. I'm very pleased. I'm quite pleased with the men's team as well. Now I will spend the next month hoping no one gets injured.

    Maroney, Wieber, Raisman (ugh), and Ross still appear to be the best choices for the women. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

    So sad for Nastia and Rebecca. At least they both ended the night well.

    ETA: They decided to announce the team tonight. It's exactly as predicted. Alternates are Anna Li, Elizabeth Price, and Sarah Finnegan.
    Men's team: Danell Leyva, Jon Orozco, Jake Dalton, Jon Horton, Sam Mikulak.

    Congratulations on making it through this post of random thoughts.

    So Phelps made 8 events again. I'm not sure he'll get 8 gold though. I think he'll lose to Lochte in the 4 IM, but I'm not too sure about the others.

    Keeping the Nazi tradition alive I see. But otherwise that's really cool.

    Is anyone else pissed that baseball was voted out this year?

    I've been emailed a message by the London 2012 Olympic Ceremonies Team saying that there will be a Torchbearer Highlights film during the opening ceremony today (or tomorrow in some other timezones) and I was asked to send any photos of me with my Olympic Torch before Monday which I did so I may be shown in the Opening Ceremony.

    Nope. MLB was not going to bring its best players and nor is Japan.

    Awesome opening in my opinion.

    Including Rowan Atkinson in it was a very good detail.

    Eh. I really haven't liked anything in particular so far. Rowan Atkinson wasn't bad, just not great, imo.

    THIS is more like it.

    Waynes World, wtf? Pretty sure that's not British.

    What's with the people on phones?

    The Australian broadcaster is focusing on Australia and basically ignoring everyone else.
