While I was sleeping

December 27, 2012

Aly was named the 5th best sports story of the year by one of Boston’s newspapers.

She is currently on their websites front sports page.

The Obnoxious Boston sports fan also named Aly to his list but I lost the link. He’s obnoxious anyway so who cares:)

Sports Illustrated thinks Kyla Ross could be the gymnast to beat in the US. He also names Lexie Preissmen and Kaitlyn Ohashi.

Shannon Miller being Shannon Miller. I wonder if she gets tired of listening to herself???:)

I like this article. Which medal is which? Neither Shannon or Aly know.

Aly in the Dominican

December 23, 2012

Don’t blink or you will miss her. (about 207 in) You can see the mouth, old man and the biggest jackass to ever live on this planet all in 5 minutes but you have to be from Boston to know who I am talking about:)

Aly is also co-Bostonian of the year according to the Globe. Title town was title-less this year unless you count Aly and the other Olympians.

I’ll have to go check the trash for the Globe Magazine from Sundays paper.

Jordyn Wieber to compete in 2013

December 23, 2012

According to all of you in the comments section and an anonymous facebook stalker who sent me this:)

John Geddert on facebook…..Its my birthday and the world was supposed to end, now that would have been a unique birthday present. Instead I got one that is much better, actually one of my favorite gifts ever. Jordyn informed me that she wants to start training again seriously and intends to compete at Championships in August. One step at a time of course, but what a great birthday present. Have to say I am a bit geeked about this….

The next tour she is on will end in March. Unless Jordyn plans on getting in shape during the tour (which will be hard to do but not impossible) she is giving herself 5 months to be ready for Nationals. That is pretty close to Nastia-ing it IMO.

Yes she is a nice kid and as far as I am concerned she was screwed by Marta last year and that led to her injury but if she is going to only give it half an effort she might as well not waste her time.

Aly Raisman, Boston sports person of the year?

December 19, 2012

You can vote. I voted for Aly and I laugh at the names on this list. Ha.

Make sure you vote for Aly because golden boy Brady will pass her if the Patriots fans get their wish.

Dear Patriots, We LOST the Superbowl. Brady deserves NOTHING.

The only Gymnastics news to report is that Sam Peszek tore her Achilles. She posted this on twitter. (Thanks to Case, for the update in the comments section)

Samantha Peszek ‏@samanthapeszek

Big huge thanks to my team for helping me through today….tore my Achilles. Taking the red eye home tonight. Ready to get back to Indy

I also found this video on youtube when Aly threw out the first pitch at Fenway. She was interviewed by Tom Caron. I have seen multiple people interviewed here including the moronic current Governor of Massachusetts and Ray Bourque.

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

If anyone would like to talk about what happened in Connecticut you can do so here. My opinion on the subject is pretty much the same as everyone else. This is a huge tragedy and anyone that has little kids in their lives is having a hard time with this.

I spent the day with my nieces on Friday and the TV was off the entire day. How do you explain something like this to a 6 year old that has to go to Kindergarten every day?

In ten years I hope we remember the 27 victims names and their stories and forget the killers because that never seems to be the case. This is me doing my part. (If anyone has a great video or article that I can use for any of these victims please let me know so I can add it)

This is a video of Noah’s Uncle talking about how his nephew was shot 11 times.Sit and think about that for awhile.

Top ten most successful gymnasts of all time

December 16, 2012

The girl that makes these is a complete biatch but I thought this list was interesting plus there is NOTHING else to talk about.

It does not decipher between AA Gold medals and event finals so it is somewhat misleading.

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

I just want to tell you how happy I am that I know a lot about things no one else does. This comes in handy when you have to shut people up that clearly have no memory, at least not compared to me:)

Nice day for a Parade

December 9, 2012

kyla_2012_53

Kyla and Mckayla were the grand marshall’s of a parade.

I found this on tumblr.
Its kind of insane but I think Mckalya grabbed a fan in me because she was pretty nice to these crazy girls running up the street while they were in the middle of a freaking parade.lol

Aly being nice. 9.000 bucks for gymnastics lessons. Someone has too much money and time on their hands.

Jordyn Wieber at the Jingle Ball

Aly Raisman at Pandora

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

and just because this is pissing me off please tell me I am not the only American that thinks our President going to see this guy perform has to be the most disgusting thing ever done by any President EVER. This beats Clinton using the oval office for Blow jobs by miles.

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

and just because I hate NY and this made me laugh:)

Aly Raisman goes shopping

December 8, 2012

Gymnastics is really dead people:) Aly has gone shopping at one of the most expensive malls this state has. Everything is over priced and I once saw a rat run across the floor at their movie theatre:)

Aly is currently in the Dominican hanging out with turncoat David Ortiz. Okay so he isn’t a turncoat but he said he wanted to be one and that is turncoat enough for me.

Aly was also signing autographs at the Burlington mall. Apparently I like to shop because I have also been to that mall. Its expensive too but not as bad as Chesnut Hill.

The Red Sox usually have something on turncoats golf charity event so I will keep my eyes out for that.

Petition

December 6, 2012

Jas has started this petition to change the two per Country rule.

You can sign it here

I really like the idea of everyone being allowed to compete in the prelims to qualify for event finals.

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

Mckayla will judge the Miss America contest.
