    Day One and I'm already cringing at the inanity of some (not all) of the commentators.
    MM's vote for most ridiculous comment of the day:

    US is first team up in men's gymnastics. The first American competitor is facing the Pommel horse, focusin his energy before mounting.

    Commentator says: "The judges are just sitting there, LOOKING at him!!"

    F'ing brilliant, that observation.
    LIke, what else would they be doing? Who else should they be looking at?

    It's going to be hard to top this comment. But somehow, I'm fairly sure it WILL happen!

    Please share your favorite stupid Olympics comments here!

      Thankfully, they do it right in Canada smile The worst here yesterday was the woman commenting on the swimming getting so excited she got out of breath and could hardly talk.

      A hurdler named Lola Jones twitted

      USA Men's Archery lost the gold medal to Italy, but that's ok we are Americans... When's da gun shooting competition?

      Many criticized her in view of the mass shooting in Aurora and after that she apologized saying

      "sorry u guys only think of violence but I think of all the hunting I do w southerners in da south. Its impressive."

      so there..

    My favorite: US vs Croatia in women's basketball; the commentator suggested the "US is being very unselfish with Croatia," suggesting they weren't playing as well as they could so as not to embarrass the competition.
