Somebody slow down the bandwagon so I can jump on!!

Okay...so I know everyone and their uncle have been screaming about how the Chinese have been getting preferential judging....well, now so am I.

I was bolstered by reading The Fourth Medal blog today over at Yahoo!

I, however, am going to exclude the following events where the outcomes are decided by judges and not solely on the athletes physical abilities:

* Gymnastics
* Trampoline
* Judo
* Diving
* Fencing
* Equestrian

The current medal counts are:
China: Gold - 43 Silver - 14 Bronze - 19 Overall - 76
USA: Gold - 26 Silver - 26 Bronze - 27 Overall - 79

Under my new calculations the medal counts would be:
China: Gold - 22 Silver - 10 Bronze - 12 Overall - 44
USA: Gold - 22 Silver - 16 Bronze - 22 Overall - 60

I don't want to sound like some ungrateful, egotistical, pompous jerk of an American...but please, the numbers kinda speak for themselves.

And there's no way that He Kexin is 16...gimme a freakin' break!!!!!!

Later lovelies!

I read that a chinese gymnast fell on her landing but got a higher score than an american gymnast who landed on her feet. Crazy stuff goin' on over there!
