    Also, IIRC they were all coached by John Nicks in the LA area.

    The announcer said 'Kawaguchi' again

    The boys don't get flowers! Skandal!

    Hey, only the women got flowers! Guess they figured the guys wouldn't want them...or they were cheap.

    I think it's b/c it wouldn't be masculine.

    :sheesh: when there isn't a judging scandal fans will find something else to complain about.

    Were the flags always like that? I mean I thought they were hung differently before with the winners flag a bit higher?

    We are in the US after all.

    Singing the National Anthem early in the morning made me all awake... But I need to sleep now, at least 3 or 4 hours.

    They could have given the guys a cake instead or something. Or new mobile phones. Nope, nothing.

    I was joking. I guess it didn't come across very well.

    I wish they ironed out the German flag or something, it looked so...wrinkled? The folds were so prominent.

    And no flowers for the men? It's not like tulips are particularly feminine either...I think I'm just going to blame the recession.

    But good job to all the medalists! I should go to bed, it's past 2AM and I have class at 9 tomorrow....

    I wonder if they'll have past US world medalists for all the disciplines bearing flowers/medals. Can you imagine the ladies' line-up? That would be kind of sad seeing Kristi, Michelle and company bearing flowers/medals without a single US lady on the podium- which is probably going to happen unless there's a miracle.

    No joke. The majority here have such hangups about masculine/feminine stereotypes.

    I don't understand at all how that will be "sad." I expect/hope the ladies who end up on the podium will deserve their medals, regardless of their nationalities.
