Not to gloat, but ... THE USA IS BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET IN WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS!!!!

The U.S. women's gymnastics team didn't just win GOLD in the team competition ... they CRUSHED the competition ... slaughtering Russia by a whole 5 points.

Just to compare, China beat the US back in 2008 by 2ish points ... in what was then considered to be a pretty dominant performance. So, 5 points is HUUUUUGE.

It's a big deal ... the team -- made up of Jordyn Wieber, Gabrielle Douglas, Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross, and McKayla Maroney -- was favored to win ... and they didn't disappoint, scoring 183.596 today. Russia came in at 178.5 (suck it).

Romania won bronze.

The last gold medal was won at the Atlanta Games in 1996 -- with the team of Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps ... and of course ... Olympic hero Kerri Strug.



It's a beautiful day for America. Now excuse us while we set off some fireworks, wrap ourselves in the Declaration of Independence, and drive our Chevy into the sunset.

WHY are you guys spoiling it for everyone??!!!!!!! You know damn well that this doesn't air until tonite and that some people would rather NOT know the outcome ahead of time???? At least post a "spoiler alert" although now it's too late. Posting that result was a total douche bag move.

Wanted to watch!    

Really...no spoiler alert and to have it as a main segment at the top of the homepage. pretty ridiculous and lack of common courtesy of your viewers/readers.

Now I know how my dad and uncle felt in the 80s when they set the VCR to record the 49ers Super Bowl and then watch it together later....and I walked in on the middle of the game and repeated what I heard at school....."Niners won!!!!!"
