Few comments on the women's team event -I thought it was a very different mood at the end of the women's competition as opposed to at the end of the men's. At the men's competition everyone seemed to agree that the Japanese really deserved to win gold and the men seemed happy to win silver. In contrast, the ladies seemed sad last night to win silver. I realize the dream is to win gold, but c'mon people, it's a freaking silver at the Olympics! Is it too much to ask for you to smile? Anyway, I'm proud of what the Americans did, but I do think the Romanians deserve the gold. They were the better team last night. Under this new format, a wobble here, a step there, can mean the difference between gold and silver. and that's what happend last night.I ♥ Mohini. Imagine having to do the beam with no warm up and never really expecting that you'd be expected to do this event because it's not your strongest. She went out there and did a great job (given the circumstances). I think experience really does count for something. Carly really seemed to get a case of the nerves and I think a lot of that had to do with her relative inexperience. There's a lot to be said for having one or two older gymnasts to anchor the team like Mohini did. Last thought - Svetlana Khorkina scares the bejesus out of me. She looks like she would do anything, anything to win. Fi
