Terrible! The online stream on NBC? Who's your cable service provider? I logged in as a Time Warner Cable customer and I'm not getting any ads...

Comcast. It's never even directed me to the sign-in page, just logs in by clicking Comcast.

Awww man...I'd be seriously ticked if the ads kept popping up for me.

Do you get the broadcast with the two Australians announcing?

Yeah, sounds like it. Now it seems to be going alright, but was freezing before.

This 50 Free promises to be an amazing race...Jones and Ervin are so easy to root for.

That 50 sprint has to be rough on the judges, so much potential for close finishes.

I'm absolutely heartbroken for McKayla. Maybe the most disappointing silver medal ever.

She's still a star, IMO. Hopefully this will give her more motivation to get back to 2016.

Yup, that's really too bad...her vault in the team finals will go down as one of the defining moments of the Games, though. She's a rock star -- people won't soon forget her.

I'm ready to see what our team will look like in Rio! I think I remember seeing that Gabby will be back, you HAVE to figure Jordyn will give it another go too...McKayla and Kyla are thick as thieves -- my guess is we'll see either both of them or neither. Not sure about Ali...was she the oldest on the team this year?

doubt you see any of them back in Rio, just the nature of the beast.

IMO...Aly will be past her prime, Jordyn will be too. Actually, both have already peaked. I'd be suprised to see either back though they may try.

The other three it all has to do with how they can juggle training with the popularity they will get when they get back to the states.

Gabby will get massive opportunities away from gymnastics, McKayla (who has stated she wanted to possibly act, and has the perfect personality for some show biz) will too. Kyla being the quitest, most boring, and youngest, will most likely be the first of the five back in the gym and will be ready for Rio where she will be 19, and probably still in decent shape. I still don't see her making the team at that age being easy with the depth of US gymnastics, but she will be in the mix.

McKayla if she gets back in the gym within a year or so, should still be dominant enough on vault to make the team again. There's a junior vault specialist, 15 year old Simone Biles, who will probably be her biggest competition.

Gabby will probably go down the same road as Shawn and Nastia. Too many opportunites outside of gymnastics, take too much time off, and then be behind the eight ball when it comes to making the 2016 team.

Some names to look out for: 15 year old Sarah Finnegan (who was the last person to get cut this year, and was an alternate), 14 year old Madi Desch, 13 year old Bailie Key, and as I previously mentioned, Biles.

My early prediction: Ross, Maroney, Key, Finnegan, random currently 12 year old 11 or prodigy we don't know about yet.

Thought Wambach scored for sure on the pass from Morgan.
