Comment of the night:
Gymnastike: Shannon Miller on Raisman’s bars – “I kind of want to glue her legs together. and point her toes”
The news is talking to Aly’s grandfather. He says she puts a lot of time into gymnastics and that she should go to the Olympics. Now they mention Alicia, Aly said she was scared of Alicia at first but now they are good friends. (Old interview) They are live in Needham:)
Jordyn did her job but if Gabby has hit the Uneven bar she would have been in second. The fix is really in.
I am going to give Gabby credit for hitting floor. That was great for her but there is NO WAY anyone is getting a 9.00 in execution. It’s a joke to even think they will. Gabby was overscored on vault too.
Kyla, you need to hit that damn Amanar and fix beam. Did anyone else see the bitchy look on Nastia’s face after Kyla fell on vault? You know she wanted to smile.
Mckayla’s floor score was funny high but I am glad she hit.
I still say the same Olympic team. Kyla hit her alleged best events tonight. This will piss her off for night two.
What do you think???
I guess I am fine with this. Who needs to peak now, In a month but Kyla, Kyla, Kyla:(
ALY is leading off the news in Boston, Go Aly:)
Aly OOB, Both feet on first pass, sigh
Damn, Price ahead of Kyla in the AA.
COME ON KYLA- Shit, she fell on her Amanar. DAMN, DAMN, DAMN
WAY TO ROLL YOUR EYES NASTIA. What a bitch. Yep, Kyla has your spot. Deal with it.
Come on Mckayla: Floor- STUCK, 3.5 Hit second pass, small hop. She HIT, Yes! and I don’t even like her.lol
15.200, yep, umm no but okay.lol
Gabby-Vault: Amanar- If that gets a 16.100 I am going to flip.lol, FLIP
She got a 15.800.lol Give me a break. MARTA SUCKS.
I was wrong. Gabby needs a 16.100 on vault. If she hits they will give her her close to it.
Sure is taking long for Jordyn’s score on floor, 15.400.
Wieber- floor: Stuck double, double. Stuck second pass, stuck triple turn? I don’t think she was OOB but it was close. Great routine.
Price- Floor: Can this kid tumble but her dance is, Maloney-esque.
They skipped Mckayla on beam, she only got a 13. She needs to hit floor.
Price only got a 14.500 on the UB but we didn’t see it so who knows why.
You were going to select Nastia Elfi? Why, because she screwed up 3 of the 4 routines at Nationals.
THIS BOARD HAS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You knew Gabby was going to get a gift on floor. Only 7 tenths behind Jordyn. Jordyn still has floor.
Kyla-floor: Hit routine but no upgrade. OMG, UPGRADE KYLA. 14.500. I will never understand why she is doing a double twist. It makes no sense. Even a double pike makes more sense.
They better NOT skip Kyla on floor.
Gabby-floor: Gabby hit floor, God help us what this score will be.lol She hit her passes with the cheap leaps out. Whose calling a 15.500?????????? Close, a 15.450. Thank God the Olympic judges will never give anyone a 9.250 execution score on floor.
Jordyn – beam: hit beam. I was too nervous but she missed one connection, hit two others.
Why did Kyla get rid of Phantom of the Opera???? Nope. A mistake by a commenter:)
Vega- OOB but hit floor for her.
I think that 15 was a gift for Alicia on beam.
NOOOOOO, Go away Kerri.
WHY, do we keep seeing Vega? She is second to last. Marta is going to name her an alternate because of her coach.
Sacramone: Bobble filled beam but not bad. She stayed on and for some reason I found myself rooting for her to stay on. What am I on.lol
Finnegan-floor: near fall. Too bad. She is pretty on floor.
Aly-Beam: one big bobble but the rest was typical Aly,
Elizabth Price is in second, woo whoo:) She needs to keep hitting because she is our alternate. She is Allyse Ashino.
Live link, not NBC. You need to download something.
They raised Kyla’s beam score to a 14.900. I wonder why?
Bross- beam: Off. Go home with Nastia. She is hitting the rest. I bet she nails the dismount.lol Another bobble, Here we go, Nope, on her ass. She’s crying.
Gabby- beam: switch leap was short of degree, a few bobbles and a missed connection. If this gets a 15 I am done.lol 14.900 No complainst for me, yet:)
Vega- Beam: hit, I didn’t pay close attention.
Mckayla on bars- Horrible messy, yuck.
Jas, Kyla missed two connections. Her first where she didn’t even do the second skill, and one other. Finnegan missed almost half her connections and still got credit for a 6.7 start value. That will not happen at the Olympics. Don’t they remember Mccool?.
Jordyn has the ugliest bedroom I have ever seen. Cute filming by her brother.
Nastia-beam: she did okay till she missed her switch ring NO CREDIT, not even close. Sorry retire already. A 14.500 is way too high but whatever. We know Marta is on control.
Jordyn-bars: nailed new dismount, muscled her weiler kips but pretty good
Finnegan-beam: messy connections all the way through and she had bigger bobbles then Kyla but it wasn’t bad but she should not get a lot of connection bonus.
Kyla-Beam: she missed the first connections and the sheep connection, had two small bobbles but she stayed on. Stuck the dismount. 14.600 NOT good enough but will take.
Aly: Bars: She hit, well for her.lol Form is so icky.lol
sanitynmotion, You are right. They do think we at home are stupid about this code.
Nastia is not quitting. I guess she likes looking like a fool. It is almost like they have told her, you’re in just hitonce so she doesn’t care and I am still pissed they did not show Anna on bars.
How do you ignore Anna on bars NBC?
Gabby- she messed up , KYLA WAS BETTER
Gift for Gabby, a 15.250, really?
Anna Li- UB: No Anna, Thanks NBC
Come on ANNA.
Nastia still gets over a 14 for that shit. That score should be impossible. The mess up before the dismount was a freaking huge break even before the dismount and now we get Phelps? urgh.
Nastia doesn’t even care. wow
Vega fell on bars
Jordyn, vault: Amanar. Almost stuck, good enough.
Nastia- UB: FALL ON DISMOUNT: It was not flawless, missed handstands
Price- Vault: Amanar: neat stuck, pretty good.
Finnegan- bars: good for her, step.
Sacramone – vault: small step and messy form by landing, she looks mad.
Ross- Come on Kyla, stuck dismount, A-W-S-O-M-E 15.500
Vault: stiff legged amanar but good enough-15.550
Bross- UB- leg seps but not as bad as usual, stuck dismount. GREAT for her. 15.300
Maroney- Vault: Amanar- nice but a step Vault 2- short on second vault, underotated but good enough.
Marta talks, I tune out. Just start the competition already.
Okay, here we go:) 1 minute. WAIT, Now they say they will be back in twenty for helps, WTF
5 minutes to go and I have NBC on. The boy knows how I am so he is giving me a hard time but he will give me the television, I have my ways:) I still have the fake site online, just in case.
9 minutes to go. My feed is 10 seconds off of NBC so make sure you all chime in if Nastia messes up.
Here is the link to the competition quick hits from Examiner.
According to Jas, Bridget Sloan might be injured, via twitter. What a fun night. Marta has her first kill. I also read a few days ago Finnegan might be injured.
Elbow is what twitter says.
My TV says this things starts at 9 pm. Then I hear 8 PM. So which is it?
It’s the damn Olympic trials and people are wearing pink and purple. What happened to using the same leotards and switching on day 2?
This twitter has some far away pictures. Of course Nastia is in throw up pink. I think it was Jas that put the link.
I can’t find a link for the online coverage of Trials for NBC so I might be gone during day one. Let me look around.
Alicia is wearing the team finals leotard from 2008. This girl is ready and fighting her demons.lol You go girl.
Live up-dates from IG on facebook.
Bridget Sloan is out. Damn you Marta. Kill the fun ones and leave Nastia as healthy as a horse. Of course she kills the UB worker.
Quick hits from warm up.
From now on I will be live blogging up so ALL new comments will be at the top.
