    My DD's dance teacher also requires hair pulled back. She says you are not "serious" about dance unless your hair is pulled back. How could someone do gymnastics with their hair flying around?

    No spoiler, I promise, for those of you who have yet to see Gabby compete in the Individual Uneven Bars competition. Douglas wears a spectacular silver metallic leotard!

    Like what's important about a gold medalist is her HAIR?

    I keep hearing about this and, for the life of me, I still can't figure out what's wrong with her hair. And now that she's made American sports history, why are we even looking?

    Lauren Scruggs: "learning to live by faith, not by sight"

    Gabby & fellow inspiration Lauren Scruggs got to meet each other.

    The interview took place in London's Olympic Village, where Scruggs said she was taking strength from the Games and the perseverance of the athletes. Asked to single out a particular Olympian, Scurggs mentioned all-around gold-medal gymnast Gabby Douglas who suddenly appeared on camera to give a surprised Scruggs a hug.

    "This means so much to me," Douglas, 16, said of Scruggs's comments. (Scruggs had just said of Gabby: "Her style is so sweet.)

    "Keep staying strong," Douglas told her. "Keep smiling,"

    Secretary of State? Never mind that, she looks awful! And besides, we like her husband better!

    Previous secretary of State? She always looks mad! But hey guys, I'd "do her", wouldn't you?!

    Former Attorney General? Hah, she looks like a man!

    Olympic medalist? Who cares, her hair looks terrible!

    Oscar-winning actress? We don't want to see her, she is too old now!

    Disgusting. And yes, it is a form of bullying.
    Just hitting the "thanks" button wasn't enough to respond appropriately to this excellent post. You totally hit the proverbial nail on the head! Sad...

    I didn't hear about the hair. I am aware though that some 'talk show' host has been criticizing her for not being more 'patriotic' in her attire. Seems some folks think all our USA contestants should have the stars and stripes all over their outfits. Ridiculous..

    Well, I am puzzled by whomever chose the pink leotards for Team USA, pretty as they were, I can at least understand a solid color- red, white, or blue...
