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.

What everyone should be irritated and irate about on here is the delays when it comes to broadcasting on television. It isn't only TMZ, it's the news outlets, etc. With the internet today it's almost impossible to NOT find out the results ahead of time, due to different time zones, and instantaneous news from all over the world. NBC show them when they happen, not when you think I should be watching them or when you think it's convenient to watch them. It's only for so many days and ALL programming should be tossed to the wind on your channels in order to show and re-show what's going on, besides, did NBC think that maybe we in the US might want to see other countries competing and not only the stuff they think affects us? I miss the good old days of ABC Wide World of Sports coverage.

and your girls did an amaizing job they did deserve it! but remember your country spends the MOST on atheltics than any other country in the world... the best coaches, equipment, everything! if all the countries that were competeing had all that money as well! it be a different story! but it is better to get the girls to olympics and pay them well when they win, then helping millons of people eat! GOOD CALL AMERICA!
