Boo hoo: Team USA Won Silver

The Yahoo and AOL homepages are pretty disgraceful-- one shows Alicia Sacramone flat on her back, the other shows her making unflattering facial expression. Headlines like "How did she cost Team USA the gold?" aren't too subtle in blaming Sacramone for the loss. I'm pretty sure she's taking it pretty hard, and it was tough watching it, but there's no need for any of this. Winning the silver is a great accomplishment, too. Remind that to the AP writers who are too busy licking cheeto dust off of their fingers to recognize that.

Congrats to Team USA, and props to the Chinese team.
