    Michael, STAY AWAY FROM LINDSAY AND PARIS. STAY AWAY FROM HOLLYWOOD.

    You deserve a stable relationship without it being splashed all over the gossip pages.

    I suppose the answer would be that the scoring in gymnastics is mostly subjective based on their execution of the moves along with the level of difficulty. Swimmers are judged only by the clock, there are no judges scores to pick apart in case of a tie.

    That was hilarious -- it just aired here on the West Coast.

    Tokyo, Japan has the best chance.. and they were followed by Spain then US (Chicago) and Rio was last.

    However McCain's use of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, that he chaired, to pressure the IOC to reform and for the President, Juan Antonio Samaranch, to resign in wake of the Salt Lake City bribery scandal has caused tension between the US and the IOC.. and yes that could be a sore spot still.
