Gabby Douglas the new Shayla Worley. Chellsie petition, SIGN

May 31, 2012

The second I heard about this link from a member of this blog it brought up memories of Shayla Worley and 2008. Asking people for money to get her family to an Olympics she didn’t even qualify for yet?

I am not adding the link because I will not help this girl who has an agent use people for money to get her family anywhere. What is wrong with this childs mother? Anyone that wants to send her mother and siblings to London is an idiot.

I wonder if they will keep the money like Shayla’s mother did when Shayla didn’t make it?

The path to living the Olympic dream is one of dedication, hard work and sacrifice. Gabrielle’s time and commitment to her sport has …The path to living the Olympic dream is one of dedication, hard work and sacrifice. Gabrielle’s time and commitment to her sport has spanned the distance of 10 years. She has given up all the “normal” things that most people take for granted. But if you ask her right now, she would say that it is all worth it.

It is sad when bloggers try and make themselves part of the story. Giving money anonymously, fine but signing your name? wow

Did you know that someone involved with the US forced Bridget Sloan to give up her Olympic pass so Shayla could visit the Olympic Village and hang out with queenie? Crazy

Hey did you also know that there is a petition to force USA-Gymnastics to let Chellsie compete at Nationals? I wasn’t sure I mentioned it on this blog yet:)

New Chellsie Memmel update. May 29th

May 29, 2012

Nope there is no update. I LIED Muhaha. Why did I lie because this poll needs more signatures and if you have not signed it get your butts in gear.

It has to be at least at 2000. I realize media backlash is dying down so please make sure you e-mail Steve Penny if you haven’t.

Even if you don’t think Chellsie deserves to go to Nationals one thing she does deserve is to go out how she wants to go out, competing.

If you need a little bit of motivation to sign this petition watch this youtube video below. It’s of Chellsie ending Trials last year. She closed out the show and brought down the house. This is the ending she deserves.

If watching Marta stand up and clap with that pompous fake smile on her face doesn’t make you want to spite her than you don’t deserve to be a gymnastics fan.


Here is the link to the petition

I am pretty sure this is thee, Kathy Johnson (Houston, TX)

Help get Chellsie Memmel to Nationals- Update

May 27, 2012

E-Mail Steve Penny and let him know how you feel,

Someone started a petition. It looks like there is only ten signatures. If that is the case SHAME ON YOU PEOPLE. Get your butts in gear.

Petition

This petition jumped from 15 to 146 in only 8 hours. Any petition under 1000 will do no good so get your friends to sign it and keep up the facebook and twitter comments as well as the e-mail to Steve Penny.

So far the only gymnasts names I have seen are Josh Dixon and Vanessa Atler.

Hell here is the list, e-mail everyone

These pictures were put up at IG Magazine and they bring the point home (sorry can’t get them to work) and while I don’t condone gymnasts getting free passes on their past accomplishments, Chellsie competed last year. She nearly won a silver medal in the AA and she has saved USA-Gymnastics so many times in the past something pet Nastia never did.

Here is one of the pictures

The end of Chellsie’s Memmel career

May 27, 2012

Read Marta’s excuse about Chellsie and how she blamed it on the committee. I wonder if Nastia gets a vote even though her name is not mentioned

Just when I thought Marta couldn’t get any lower she does something that makes me literally want to smack her fucking ass right back to Romania.

Chellsie Memmel went to Classics and on the advice of Marta chose to only compete beam. She then fall twice. When the meet was over the former World Champions petition to Nationals had been denied.

Fine, I get it. She fell twice but that didn’t stop Marta was allowed Shawn Johnson to compete at Nationals last year after she messed up.

It didn’t stop Marta from naming Nastia Likuin to the Nationals team after she went to camp and did nothing to earn her the position of National team member.

Chellsie Memmel is a former world champion and on the advice of Marta she chose to compete only beam at this years Classics even though she couldn’t stay on the damn event during podium training.

We all know that if Nastia had fallen off beam twice tonight she would have been granted the petition but there is no way in hell Marta Karolyi was going to let Chellsie Memmel pull a Chellsie Memmel and show up at Nationals and Trials better then ever. She couldn’t take the chance.

Scoring
Watch Live

What can you say. Can I stand her no but she stayed on. There is no way she gets credit for the connections and I don’t think she did (she got a 6.0 for a start value) and yes she was overscored with a certain jump not getting credit but unlike Chellsie, she stayed on.

Maroney’s vault is beautiful but that was messy for her. Only 4 tenths off.

Gabby hit bars, had a dead hang and Tim made sure to mention that this is the same score Komova is getting. She isn’t getting that with that routine outside the US.

Rebecca Bross fell on her didmount but the scores says more then the routine did. She got a 13.2 with a fall. Rebecca used to get in the 14′s with a fall. I think Valeri forcing her to two events was a hidden agenda to get Nastia in.

Jordyn is almost in tears. Way to kill everyone Marta.

Aly had her normal floor and got a 15.350


Now that was hilarious. They kept the mic on and Tim asked about Alicia having the most medals and Shannon goes, world not Olympics.

Gabby fell on beam and still got a 14.400? It is getting easier and easier to see Marta’s favorites in the scoring.

Listening to Tim and Amanda makes me want to scream. They are knocking down Kyla like crazy and talking up queenie, Aly and Sarah. Gabby too but that floor is gross.

Anna Li might as well stay home. She is useless. What the hell is she smiling about?

According to Tim Sarah Finnegan has upped her chance with this competition but Kyla has not yet Kyla is currently a tenth and a half ahead of Sarah.

I want to thank Jordyn for nailing beam and saving us from, Nastia won beam at Classics.

Now Tim is lying. Gabby was doing AA. She said it but now she isn’t? and USA-G won’t let her do it? This crapola.

I just clapped for Becca hitting bars and I am not drinking.

How did Jordyn only get a 15.00 for that beam routine?

Aly got the same score and I thought Jordyn was better but I am glad both of them hit and if Kyla had done her job Nastia would be 4th.

Kyla is always better on day two and she just nailed bars. The leg separation on the Van lewen (sp) but the rest was perfect.

15.450 for Kyla on bars according to the score sheet.

They will talk to Nastia next. Oh happy days. Did you see her just talking to the girl in the crowd smile but the second she walked away she had this look on her face that said, thank God that is over.lol It was funny.

Aly just scored over 60 in an AA competition.lol Um not with that bars but she hit so she can’t complain.

Nastia just used her name in the third party.lol

Nastia looked short on her dismount and she missed the connections including the sheep jump but like I said, she stayed on.

Shut Up Shannon part 2

May 26, 2012

Like the White Sox don’t have enough problems, Shannon Miller threw out the first pitch tonight at their game to promote the US Classic being in Chicago. Much better then the Shawn Johnson attempt. The other Sox could have used her tonight she might have been able to hit big mouth Scott on the first try instead of the second:)

Secret Classic

May 25, 2012

Here is another version

This seems to be the only move Nastia can do on bars because it is the same one she showed earlier this year. She was slow and labored and messy but she was pretty close to handstand but still had the shitty leg separations.

If the judges are doing their jobs and this is what she has got she should be nailed.

Quick hits from the Examiner

Now I don’t like Nastia so maybe I am being too critical. What do you think?

Thanks to K for the video

Here is her beam
and again I don’t find it impressive.

More videos at Gymnastike

So I am watching these videos with my niece and she see’s Nastia and asks me if she gets dizzy when doing bars. Then I showed her someone else on bars and she says, wow she is much better then the other girl she can switch between those bars.

I love my smart niece:)

So why are you a gymnastics fan?

May 24, 2012

GTT: I was wondering if there is anyway to make a suggestion to you about a post topic? Anyway I would love to ask why everyone is a fan of elite gymnastics. I know it is a general question unrelated to anything specific in the news lately but it would be fun to see what everybody thinks, especially you and all the regulars who provide comments. I have a few thoughts myself.

I guess I could just toss the question out in a comment to one of your posts but I didn’t want to hijack the post with a question unrelated to the topic of the posts.

Terri gym fan wanted me to ask the readers of this blog a question so I am going to ask you, Why are you a fan of gymnastics? Who first turned you on to the sport and what kept you coming back again and again?

My answer is pretty simple, My Mother. She used to watch the sport so I would watch it. One of my first memories is of her complaining about how the gymnasts would not be able to go to the Olympics because of the boycott. I guess I was a casual fan at that time.

The gymnast I remember being fascinated by was Julianne McNamara. I don’t remember specifics about her as a gymnastics I just remember her.

I must have lost track of the sport until later in the 80′s because my next memory is wanting Pheobe Mills to beat Kristie Phillips. I was so thrilled when she earned the bronze medal on beam at the Olympics.

After that it was all general. I was in full fledged gymnastics mode by the 92 Olympics even watching the triple cast through a TV station I didn’t have. Wathcing the lines going through the television.

The rest if history.

GGMB goes KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May 24, 2012

Doc Martin has been banned from her own board.

To make a long story short one co-owner got mad that Abomb keeps harassing people for believing in God (which he does by the way ALL THE TIME) and when Abomb showed up at the board today he had been banned. Doc was banned too. Also someone named Heff.

When I first read that Doc was banned from her own board I was like Crazy Abomb but lets just say that Kerri Fairy is correct here. Abomb does harass and belittle anyone that believes in God and just because Doc doesn’t want to acknowledge it doesn’t make it less of a fact. Good for Kerri Fairy.

“God” and I are luke warm but if anyone wants to believe in him I don’t think I have the right to treat them like crap. Abomb is just a wanna be God. Isn’t it ironic he hates what he wishes he was?

Apparently a new board will be up soon. I think I will stay away.

GGMB is pretty dead unless a meet is happening anyway. It is more about College gymnastics.

It will be very interesting to see if Abomb can get the same money to keep the place alive that he got on GGMB. I can see that board dying a slow death.

The myth of GGMB is bigger than the board itself.

Hopefully this means the end of GGMB and the harassment and insanity of Abomb will be dead. Stay tuned.

Here is a link to the new board.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is what Kerri Fairy just wrote on GGMB

…must come to an end, or so it is said.

THE KERRIFAIRY MANIFESTO

My Dearest Darlings,

This morning, open board war was declared. I know you gossipmongers are just DYING to hear what happened, and more, and so you shall have your wish.

At the outset, I want to take the opportunity to sincerely thank all of you who have sent me PMs of support today, and in the past. I also want to publicly apologize to anyone and everyone who has been hurt by anything I have ever done in connection with this site or GGMB’s past incarnations, and specifically for allowing anyone to be bullied or subjected to abuse of powers for what has been about nine years now.

Reasonable people don’t disagree that everybody is entitled to believe whatever they want in religious terms. Those principles have long been enshrined in documents like the US Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the latter by many nations of the world and all the way back in the 1940s, mind you. GGMB was never supposed to be a site which promoted any religion or even irreligion. We all came here to discuss gymnastics, and not really much more, except for getting to know, appreciate and love one another, and to be catty and funny.

I met Doc Marten and ABomb at the 2003 World Gymnastics Championships, on the very night Svetlana took home her third absolute all around crown. And shortly afterward, I found myself moderating. It’s not something I sought or asked for or lobbied for, it was something I was asked to do out of the blue. “Why not?” is one of my favorite questions, and so I came aboard.

Most of you know the drama surrounding the firing of past moderators already, so I’ll skip straight to the part where ABomb gets us kicked off Excoboard. We were really in a bind, because we wanted a place where THE MAN couldn’t tell us what we could and couldn’t say. So I offered to host GGMB and to ask personal favors of my friend, Lang, in order to get us up and running. From then until now, GGMB has been at gymgossip.com, which is my URL. And I took a lot of risks through the years hosting GGMB, because I personally received legal threats from the Gymw.orld asshole and from Sue over stupid bullshit ABomb either said or instigated.

In later years, ABomb started treating me like I was his younger brother, and it was something that made me feel uncomfortable, especially coming from a colleague. I am the oldest brother, and as all oldest children know, sometimes we have to step in when the kids are getting into mischief and put an end to it. Here is an example:

And, so, when I turn her down, she gets cuntier and CUNTLIER. Toward the end of last year, upon learning that I have the audacity to believe in God, he told me it was the “ULTIMATE BETRAYAL”. Yes, really.

For the sake of EVERYBODY’s enjoyment of the board, I proposed a resolution through Doc Marten in December that ABomb tone down the bullying and abuses of power, especially when it came to religion. And he agreed to do so until after this Olympics. Then, not too long afterward, and the threads remain on the site, he chews somebody out for even mentioning prayers and well wishes to an injured Gabby, and shuts down another user in the SAC thread, blaming SAC’s faith on brainwashing by her boyfriend.

But, can’t it get any dishier than that? Because that’s exactly what ABomb accused me of last December and this morning: that I have been brainwashed by a twink cultmember. I don’t know how spun you have to be to cook shit up like that, but it’s way more than a nickel bag. So, please don’t believe the bullshit and LYEZ, or believe it if you want. It hardly matters any more.

I knew in December that it was all over when ABomb declared, “This is not a dictatorship.” My heart skipped a beat, because that is the perennial cry of every dictator spanning history. And I realized that GGMB really had run its course, or at least the show we had been putting on, well the ship had sailed, bitches. They’re playing all these re-runs of Little House of the Prairie on TV all the time, and it reminded me that we didn’t need a 9th season. The show had been over for a while when Shannen Doherty came along. Many of the Star Trek series decided to just end it after seven seasons, because things were good and it was time to quit. As many of you know, because I spoke with some of you about this, I told Doc and Abomb I was quitting after my 7th year, because it was time. But, they wouldn’t let me leave because, and I quote, “that would mean Sue wins”. In other words, everybody would know Sue was right about ABomb driving people away.

ABomb is short for ABOMBination, like an abominable meltdown or some shit, if you have really been paying attention. I don’t know what happened in the past to so disaffect him with the concepts of God and religion and the sort, and maybe it doesn’t matter. But what does matter on a site supposedly dedicated to the sport and art form of gymnastics, and the gossip, is that people be free from an agenda forced on its users by staff, bullying, abusing powers, and a literal obsession with making sure people agree with his irreligion. Several of you have bravely come to me in complaint. Whereas in years past I may have ignored you or even reported to you ABomb for complaining about him, I then realized that when these complaints became persistent, people were really upset.

I made several propositions to Doc in the past few months, including that the entire old moderator staff step down and new moderators be elected by the users, and offered as recently as this morning to allow Doc to continue hosting GGMB on this site, so long as ABomb was no part of it. Those of you who are the closest to ABomb know you would be liars if you said you never heard him say the most rotten, despicable and disparaging things about Doc. He hates her, and treats her with scorn, ridicule and contempt behind her back. And he has told me he only keeps her around because she was like the one in the boardroom who had the one good idea decades ago to create the company, and the board just let’s them stick around. ABomb made it CLEAR when I first started as a mod that he was in charge of GGMB, and that I did not need to listen to what Doc had to say.

Doc is a grown woman, and she has a mind of her own. The more I got to know her, and visit with her, the more I liked her, and the less I liked ABomb. Because he was nasty and a hater without respite. This morning, Doc informed me she will be taking GGMB to the new ABomb board. She gave me a lot of excuses about how ABomb gets drunk, and we should all allow for his tirades. Whatever! I have zero qualms with any of you wanting to go there. If you would like a notification from Doc about the new GGMB, or to speak with her, her public e-mail address is: dmarten90@gmail.com

The show is over with GGMB on this site. ABomb has clutched on to power for over a decade now, and it is at an end, at least here. He can’t hurt you any more. The bullying and abuse are at an end. I gave ABomb a GOOD DOSE OF HER OWN MEDICINE this morning, and she choked on it. The entire staff has been fired, and even though I will admit that neither Betty nor RankerMatt ever did anything to deserve it, we have to move on. Anyone who has been unable to come to terms with this state of affairs has been banned, which has really only been a handful of members and former mods.

This site has been paid for through I think about November. The show is over for me, too. We will have FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS for a new moderator staff, to include four new moderators, when nominations are complete. If you would like to nominate yourself, or somebody else, to lead the future or the end of this site, please let us know in this thread. I will assist the new staff until after I host my third coverage of the Olympic Games with you, and I will retire. If the new staff wants to keep this place going and raise some money, that’s their choice. If they want to party like it’s 2099 until November and let this place die, that’s their choice, too.

Nominations for new moderators will be accepted for the next three or four days. After that, the elections will be set up by POLE. Nobody who has served in the past as a moderator may apply. Anyone who would be totally fucking banned from this place but for ABomb’s personal protection is likewise ineligible, although after aevera, that leaves only the one of you. I will moderate this board in the interregnum between now and the election.

Several users who posted messages in support of me this morning were banned by the former staff. If you know who any of these people were, and they want back in, please let me know by PM.

Oh, and the current world champions are the good old team USA, Jordy, McKayla, Komova, that one pixie, and Afan.

For those who are wondering why the colors on the screen capture above are different, it is because it was taken from G6, which is the SEKRET site on GGMB. To protect the innocent, I will not name names, but G6 was the site created after ABomb insisted there were too many “leakers” on GGMB2, known as G2, and it is a pretty small crowd anymore. I have closed G6 as of today. We’ll be having no more secret sites and favored treatment.

I can’t believe that Donna Summer’s faith in God is what sent ABomb over the edge this morning, but it is further proof of his obsession with keeping anyone he can from believing in whatever they want. But Donna was like Tammy Faye Bakker with the fags. We could give a fuck what they believed. They were fabulous and the queens loved them for THEM. The winner of the RuPaul Show this year had a huge tattoo of Tammy Faye on her arm, okay? It doesn’t get much gayer than that. Anyone who knows their gay history knows of METROPOLITAN COMMUNITY CHURCH. You don’t have to be an atheist to be gay, and nobody deserves to have that ideology pushed on them, especially under threats or coercion.

It’s over. ABomb can’t hurt you any more. You can say “God” again on this site. Nobody’s pushing religion, and nobody will push irreligion. It’s over, girls.

When I have said in the past that I LOVE YOU ALL, it is because I mean it. You fans are the BEST fans of our sport, and having met so many of you, please know my love for you is true and from the bottom of my heart. I also love Doc, who was a great friend for a lot of years, and I also continue to love ABomb, even after all that has happened, because he needs to be loved the most! I will caution you, however, if he loved me as much as he did, and tossed me out of his life, as with so many others, it can and probably will happen to you, too.

Give me some names. This place needs moderators!

And I know where all the skeletons of GGMB are buried, so if you have any questions, ask away. If you just want to bitch and moan about how wonderful and great ABomb is, why don’t you go tell him and Doc that at their new site? Saying it to me will get you told to fuck yourself, and buy you a one-way ticket out the door. Just a fair warning.

I am that bitch.

Love,
Kerri
