Top 151 Floor routines of all time

October 31, 2010

Gymnasticstop151 had decided to make a list of the top 151 floor routines of all time.

He is down to number 51 so far. I am on my way to watch the list and see if I agree:)

Okay so here are my comments so far I had such high hopes for this before I started following it.

Number 80 is in-correct. Roza wasn’t on floor Dina was when Strug vaulted and the crowd was not obnoxious.

Number 83- She never beat Miller. I LMAO when people try and justify choker as a great American gymnast. If she had beaten Miller head to head when Miller didn’t make a mistake we would talk but she NEVER did. Only time she beat Miller in an AA competition was when Miller fell.

Number 121- NO, no, no. No Piskun on any top floor routine list.

Blame Canada

October 30, 2010

Just watched Skate Canada and boy were those results complete Bull shit. Patrick Chan held up again by his PCS not only BIG TIME in the LP but in the SP where he fell 3 times.

If I was Adam Rippon I would have refused the medal and walked off the podium. The judges should be suspended and this sport should be taken from the Olympic games.

Utah intra-squad

October 30, 2010

Everyone was impressed with how Corrie Lothrop consistantly hit her routines to make it all the way to the alternate at the 2008 Olympics well now she is at College competing for Utah. I must say I wasn’t to impressed with her video above. She seems out of shape.

Today is a National Holiday

October 30, 2010

It’s Nastia Liukins Birthday. She is having a big party in LA and according to the message I just got she didn’t even invite Sam Peszek knowing full well she lives in LA now.

I must admit that I didn’t know it was Nastia’s birthday until I got this message about the party in LA. Seriously who has a party in LA when they are from Dallas? I bet this was paid for by JC Penney or some sponser and if it wasn’t then Nastia has gone Hollywood on us. I do find it kind of funny that Nastia expects all her friends to fly out to LA instead of just coming out to her hometown but whatever:)

I totally know what Hotel she is staying at too. She isn’t the smartest girl on the planet to announce where she is staying on facebook but Nastia not being smart is something we all have known for years. I so want to leak the info to some of her stalkers but I won’t. Then again she announced it herself ……

300 bucks a night. There are kids starving in this world and the cheapest this hotel has is 300 a night. Shameful Nastia. Just shamefuLL

Baby Mustafina

By way of gymnasticscoaching.com we have Baby Aliya Mustafina falling all over the place but look at her lines in this video. If only she still had them now.

Hypocrite Fie has not changed

October 30, 2010

She misses the ten. She misses the beauty of a, b and c skills. LMAO The reason the code was changed was because she ruined the sport.

She was the one that wanted Dominqiue Dawes as the face of USA-Gymnastics so she has no damn right to miss the beauty of the sport she helped kill. When you promote the shit you don’t get to miss the flowers.

Go away Jackie Fie. You are just as bad as Nellie Kim

Are the Gym Dogs back?

October 28, 2010

Georgia has a training video and I stole it from Aunt Joyce haha. I think everyone looks impressive on bars and floor. Beam didn’t look that great to me but I can’t tell one of these girls from the other except for Shayla Worley and Hilary Mauro.

Dominqiue Moceanu won a Cleveland version of Dancing with the Has beens I mean stars with 3 perfect tens. Marta will surely let her compete at Nationals now:)

IG Forum bans God

October 25, 2010

Look there Sarah I capitalized God for YOU:)

God was banned from the IG message board and our buddy we haven’t seen in awhile Sarah has written a blog about it. Here is the link

I would so start a message board if I thought anyone would post at it. It would be just like GGMB before Abomb took over only without the swearing so kids could enjoy the board too. They could also learn what the world of gymnastics used to be like when free speech existed and you could think Nastia Liukin was a rude little twit without fear of Nastia fans crusifying you at the stake. Oh well maybe this board wouldn’t be for children:)

Aly Raisman was robbed. Event Finals

October 25, 2010

One of my fondest memories from last years worlds was Lauren Mitchell sitting, looking around just happy as a clam because she just competed two really amazing routines. This was even before she won silver medals on beam and floor so I just can’t complain about her winning the floor Gold medal. I am happy for her. She was a bit overscored due to the landings on her second and last pass but I just can’t bring myself to say she didn’t deserve the Gold medal. I could make a case against her but it was close.

Aliya has been amazing at this years worlds. Winning the AA and team Gold and medals on floor, bars and vault is an amazing accomplishemnt. I thought her floor routine was pretty good in the event finals minus the landing on one of her passes. Her double turn looked short but she still got credit for it.

That brings us to the bronze medal where I am calling BULLSHIT. I am sorry but there is no way in hell Aly Raisman didn’t deserve this medal. You could even make a case for Vanessa Ferrari ( a case against is her lower difficultyby 4 tenths) who nailed 3 of her 4 passes but it will be a cold day in hell you will ever be able to make a case for Diana Chelaru. I guess you could even make a case for both of Vanessa and Aly being on the podium since Aliya’s double turn wasn’t complete but Diana had a huge step on her triple twist and was sloppy overall. Aly’s only real mistake was a step on her double pike. This just isn’t fair. They will over score Rebecca Bross till the cows come home because of Valeri but when someone nails a routine like Aly did they screw her.

Congrats to Peggy Liddick for her second World Champion

Beam Finals: What can you say. Ana Porgras hit a good routine with a few bobbles. Rebecca Bross had a few bobbles a small step on her dismount to take silver and Deng was way overscored on a routine full of huge bobbles to take Bronze. Alicia fell short on her 9th world medal finishing 5th due to her weak difficulty score.

The last man standing or should I say women standing was how the bars were won. Beth was first with her usual great routine. Aliya was second and had a good routine until her dismount and Rebecca Bross again benefitted from everyone falling to win the bronze medal. Bridget Sloan finished 4th. He was pretty upset crying after her routine was over. It’s a shame she fell. I think she will be better for it in the future. Everyone has to learn to lose sometime but she is still amazing.

Vault: Alicia hit her two vaults to finish 4th. Aliya had her Pod vault devalued after hitting an amazing Amanar to finish second and Jade Barbosa finished third. The rest of the results are below. Aliya protested her scores (well her coaches did) to no avail and poor Alicia had to sit there for a half an hour and wait. Come on judges get it right from the start.
