While I was almost sleeping

February 28, 2013

I am over tired and incapable of sleeping for more than 2 hours at a time. This is what happened when I was over thinking……

 

Mckayla Maroney interview.

 

Aly Rasiman Q and A

More Mckayla in an Video interview I think. I didn’t watch yet.

Find out what Shannon Miller would do if she was invisible. Gotta love questions gymnasts are asked.

I read at tripletwists tumblr account that she read in an article that Mckayla turned down, Dancing with the stars.

Can anyone find any videos of the Foreign competitors for the American cup? (Just the women)

American Cup Podium training

February 28, 2013

 

No upgrades on any Kyla routine I saw but she has upgrades ready. I have no clue why she isn’t using them but with Marta in charge you can guess. Off to watch the rest

Gymnastike also has coverage. Here is an interview with Kyla.

American Cup Ticket for sale. I hate USA-gymnastics

February 26, 2013

Kyla “injured” and now I have to sit through Kaitlyn Ohashi? Oh Happy days, NOT. Koko is injured too?

If I thought anyone would buy it I would sell it.

Simone Biles, woo freaking de-who. Someone better give me some details on Simone because if you see someone sleeping in their chair at the American Cup it is so going to be me.

I wish I had 100 bucks to throw away because I would stay home. I know myself and there is still a chance I might wake up Saturday morning and turn back over and go to sleep.

Why will Kyla do an exhibition on beam with a bruised heal?

Hey I found a reason to be happy-ish. Canadian Meagan Chant is coached by Christina Bontas who I actually liked as a gymnast back in the day. I’ll spend my time looking for Bontas:)

An article about Peter Vidmar’s daughter and her College gymnastics career.

Aly is officially a member of DWTS season 8 million.

Be so good they can’t ignore you

This quote reminds me of so many gymnasts that were never the favorites from the US but they found a way to make USA-gymnastics take notice.

Pheobe Mills,  Shannon Miller,  Elise Ray, Kristen Maloney,  Chellsie Memmel,  Bridget Sloan and so many more.

~~~~~~~~~~~

WetPaint.com is stalking Aly Raisman on vacation.lol

Beth Tweddle dumped her boyfriend over a text message. How sweet. Nice to know Beth isn’t as sweet as she seems. Of course we don’t know what happened between them for her to do this or if she even did this but I find it kind of funny in a mean way.

McKayla Maroney gets an endorsement deal.

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

Steve Penny worked for the Mariners? I didn’t know that. Think he can get my Edgar Martinez t-shirt autographed for me?

No news on the second American cup gymnast. Considering they are probably on their way here in the next two days I find this lack of an answer odd. Almost like USA-Gymnastics is looking for someone to get in shape so they can send a big name. (Jordyn Wieber??)

Someone tell Nellie Kim she is not a Legend. She’s a cheater and should be kicked out of the sport. I read somewhere Nelli is pretty bitter that Nadia gets all the attention for the first 10 since she got a ten herself in the same competition.

I know there are a lot of Tom Brady haters here including myself but I must say I never saw this one coming. 9 million dollars a year extension? You will never see Peyton Manning doing this.

While I was sleeping. Part ????

February 25, 2013

Aly Raisman is rumored to be on DWTS. TMZ has all the gossip. No word from the Raisman camp. I love Kellie Pickler and Wynonna so I hope both are on the show with Aly.

Beth Tweddle week 8. Backward roll with skates on, impressive:)

There is a team dance with Beth but I don’t support the US President being a moron and shaking hands with someone wanting to blow up our Military so I won’t support Beth dancing to it either.

 

Rumor has Nastia replacing Elfi on the NBC Broadcasts of gymnastics. I guess we will have more to make fun of in the future:) Please let this awful info be just a rumor. I realize Nastia’s stalker is the source of this rumor but come on, NBC must have an idiot in charge if they bring this ego into their broadcast “family” Nastia is and always has been about Nastia. She loves to talk about herself and this platform gives her more opportunity to do just that.

There are so many former gymnasts that do commentary and have experience doing it like Shannon Miller, Amanda Borden, even Elise Ray does some College meets so explain to me why NBC decided to hire, her? The network is truly out of the loop when it comes to the sport. Most likely they just don’t care.

Episode 5 for Aly

Week 6 for Beth

Kohei is just better than you

February 20, 2013

Triple twisting Yurchenko anyone? How about a Dragulescu?  This guy is amazing. I have faith he will fix the form when it really matters and while this does prove that Kohei is human but he is still better than you. Its time we all just learn to live with his greatness.:)

 

 

Max Aaron is inspired by Aly Raisman. The US is in huge trouble in Figure Skating with who they are sending to worlds. This could be one spot for the Olympics bad.

Catching up with Kyla Ross

February 18, 2013

4th episode of Aly’s webisode show

Here is episode 3, Nor sure if we posted this

Like Mother and daughter

February 15, 2013

Brandy Johnson’s daughter is 12 years old and a gymnast. She has some potential here and kind of reminds me of mom

 

Watch Sydney at Gymnastike

Here is her mom at the World Cup in 1990.

Mckayla Skinners new Floor routine and a plea

February 12, 2013

You can watch it here

With everything I have read about this floor routine I expected to hate it. After getting past the really loud violin screeching music I didn’t hate it. I didn’t love it and she needs work on her presentation but I found this more enjoyable then Aly’s floor routine.

She fell on her double front and was piked down on her double double layout but overall it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

So I thought I would watch the routine a second time and I didn’t not hate it as much as I did the first time. The more I watched it the less I found myself enjoying it. Catherine said I should look at her practice routine so I want to youtube and found this and then I realized I never even noticed the Choreography watching it the first time. This video is clearer then the first one I watched and I guess this is the routine I didn’t like more so than the first video.

So what do you think? I am still on the fence. I have watched it three times so far and each time I watch it I find more to criticize. Maybe judges should be allowed replays and then maybe we can get some realistic scores???

Here are all 4 of Mckayla Skinner’s routines from Nationals last year. Her worst event seems to be beam.

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

Now my plea. There has been some fighting here lately and I would appreciate it if the personal attacks would stop. You can attack the opinion but attacking the person is IG, it is not us. From this moment on if I see a personal attack I am editing it out.

While I was sleeping the Best friends edition

February 10, 2013

 

Jordyn looks great. The few pounds she gained look to have been lost. She has clearly been training. HOWEVER I am sick of listening to these girls claim they are best friends. We get it, BFF’s, move on….. Being BFF’s (which we all know is bull shit) had nothing to do with winning that gold medal

If you look you can see Tasha Schwikert in the background.

Aly commercial. Hey it’s Sunday, where are you Aly????

Mckayla sure likes her keek videos. Some of them are cute, some of them are the same. Some of them are stupid but overall this is probably a great thing she does for her fans.

This one above is cute. I got these off youtube because someone uploaded them and I have decided to add the ones that are related to an event. This one is for the video she is in. The one above this is the game awards.
