    Olympics - (Spoiler Alert!)

    Saw on ESPN web page that Shawn Johnson finally got Gold. You gotta love her. Coming so close and yet being such a great sport. Glad she got the Gold in the Beam.

    Re: Shawn Johnson gets Gold

    I just got done watching it. I am glad she came back with at least 1 gold so people would never say this olympics were a failure for her. 1 gold and 3 silvers is pretty good!

    Re: Shawn Johnson gets Gold

    I think they are going to kick her out of Valley for only coming back with 1 gold.

    Re: Shawn Johnson - (Spoiler Alert!)

    Well I guess the DM Register can stay in business now that their paparazzi like coverage of her has been backed up in the form of a Gold medal. I'm fully expecting a special-edition golden paper for tomorrow's edition

    All joking aside, it's good that she was able to get 4 medals, including the Gold. Impressive.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Hey hos - why don't you track down monkeybrow while you're out there - it's been ages since I've heard from him (just assuming with every single Union Jack avatar that he's ever had that he's from out there...)

    A little "tub thumping" is in order here... I get knocked down, but I get up again, you ain't never gonna keep me down...

    I know it's "only" athletics, but I'm proud of her and I'm proud she's from Des Moines. She showed courage and resilience.

    They reported it on Headline News also. Guess those who want to watch tape delay to find out stuff should wear earplugs and blinders. Personally, knowing that she wins Gold would want to make me watch it all the more. Sorry if I spoiled it for some. Thanks to the Mods who fixed it.

    Re: Shawn Johnson - (Spoiler Alert!)

    I don't know if you guys are joking or not, but I think that Shawn J getting this gold medal is a HUGE deal. Not just for her, but for all of central Iowa. Now, she'll probably never have to work a day in her life. She will just be able to sit back and RAKE in the endorsement money. For Iowa, imagine all the publicity it will bring to our great state. I'm sure that the top gymnastics coaches in the world will descend about Iowa looking for the next Shawn Johnson. Will the find her? Probably not. But will the find a wonder place to live, great people, earthy aromas, and great food. DEFINITELY. Congrats Shawn.
