Enough already [Aug. 17th, 2004|11:15 pm]

Am I the only one who is sick and tired of watching gymnastics and having the cameras do an extreme close up every single time the gymnast is about to do a tumbling run?

Get a new move, guys.

gymnastics spastics

yeah, i'm with you. there are times when i want to just strangle the cameraman. in-their-faces close-ups when i want to see how their bodies move or how they use up the space/apparatus. sometimes ya just gotta leave creativity behind.

commenting on your blog to remind you to leave something behind when you visit mine. of course, i haven't put much out there on which to comment!

Is It Just Me?

Mary here. Does it seem like the American commentators really seem to rag the U.S. competitors when they're not doing so well, or is it just me? Do they do it so as not to offend the other countries, or do we just love kicking our own when they're down? I hope not.

You know I've been so busy I wasn't able to watch until last night... while packing for my move this weekend. I thought they did a fair job of covering the swimmers.

It's not just you

I agree with Mary. The commentators are completely silent when the other countries perform- never a negative word. Then our team steps out and it's "ooh- that's going to cost her. Another mistake, I can't believe she just did that. Oops, another balance check, take off another 0.1. You know- the judges aren't adding to the scores here *laughter*." I just want to scream!
