Michelle’s husband has left his post as something or other in our lovely Government and rumor has him running for Governor of Rhode Island in 2014. We don’t need another bleeding heart democrat in Office but hey, at least it isn’t Massachusetts:)

I am keeping this for the future in case I need to either be sick at the audacity of it all or laugh, which ever suits my feelings that day.
This is video of Nastia not making the Olympic team after half assing her routines only to be consoled by Marta.
Does anyone have a video of her interview on NBC after she screwed up twice and with her usual arrogant attitude proclaimed she would come back better than ever with her new harder routine in two weeks? That needs to be saved for future blogs.lol

I love Elizabeth Price’s Aunt. She is like our very own spy inside USA-Gymnastics. She tweeted this earlier today ( Thanks Gigi) I don’t think Marta will appreciate this kind of info being leaked to us mere mortals of the gymternet but I am glad it is being leaked non the less:)
Peyton Ernst and Maggie Nichols will be competing at an up and coming competition and apparently they were supposed to duke it out at camp for the right to compete but Marta has decided to send both.

Jordyn Wieber looks great. Hindorff and DTY into the pit. Hindorff is the most overrated skill in the sport (next to the Pak) but it looked good anyway.
Aly also looks great. Check out the face. She is losing the weight.
Teen of the week has a Fierce 5 mention
Article with a Mckayla Maroney mention.
Mckayla Maroney helps a sick women feel good about herself, indirectly
There doesn’t seem to be any Kyla news so I will just post this. Someone has too much bleach and too much time on his hands.lol but whoever this kid is very impressive.
Simone Biles article. I like that I finally like some US gymnasts and can be happy they won their medals.
Gracie Gold the idiot.
She is not a child and she is not slow. She has to know how this sounded and how it made her look. People are defending her stupidity and the hypocrisy needs to stop. Look at the outrage at what went on with the Italian gymnast. Peopled raked her over the coals.
Stop blaming Phil Hersch for pointing out what she said. Reporters report the news.

First this is all I have to say about the Manager of the year award. It will be once I fix the word I left out.:)
Toronto cost Farrell the win by being bitter cheaters.
Alexi Bonderenko is still alive and still cute:)
Two of my favorite things of all time in the same room (technically the room is the favorite thing) and there is only ONE thing missing from this picture, ME. (Forget Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo is in the picture)
Michelle Kwan was at Fenway today with the 3 WORLD SERIES TROPHY’S that I have never seen in person and no one told me this was happening?

This is my open letter to the Television show the Mentalist.
Dear The Mentalist,
I have invested 6 years watching your show for the soul purpose of seeing Rigsby and Van Pelt end up alive, together and happy and now I am hear rumors you are going to turn Van Pelt into a member of Red John’s acult? I don’t think so.
Do you think I have spent six years watching this show for nothing? Hell no. I have sat through numerous years of bull shit and no contact at all between these two hoping for the pay out and you seriously have the fucking gaul to make her a bad guy ?
I am telling you this if you turn Van Pelt or Rigsby ( my own personal opinion on what is going to happen) into a member of Red John’s messed up universe I will never watch your show again. I will never turn on CBS again. Hell I might never turn the TV on again.
You may think everyone watches your show for Simon whatever his name is but that is not the case. I always turned into the show for Rigsby and Van Pelt and between seasons 3 and 6 I pretty much watched for nothing since you did everything you could to keep them a part.
So if you wish to keep me and other fans watching the Mentalist you will let Rigsby and Van Pelt happily fade into the sunset,
Love your soon to be ex fans

Elizabeth Price will compete at the two meets she won last year. Glad she is getting something. Pretty much sucks that she got hurt at the wrong moment.
Katelyn Ohashi doesn’t want you to speculate on her life as a gymnast. “Queen Katelyn” seems to think the gymternet should mind their business even though she makes it their business by putting herself out there on the internet for attention every single day. Sorry Katelyn taking a page from Nastia’s book thinking she is more important than she is.
A hypothetical question for you all. Lets say a gymnast is coached by the same man since they were ten years old would you feel something is wrong if they entered into a adult relationship when the gymnast becomes legal? Would it matter to you if the gymnast was a female or a male ?
I have recently learned that this happened in real life to a gymnast (not artistic) you may or may not know and without mentioning names it kind of rubbed me the wrong way. What do you think?

Where do I start?
She hates Bela and refuses to mention his name during this speech yet she thanks her father, calls him misunderstood and dedicates her induction into this joke of a Hall of Fame to her dearly departed daddy? Give me a break Domo.
EVERYTHING that ever happened to you as a child gymnast is 100% all on your dearly departed hired hitman for money. He sent you to Bela knowing what kind of person he was. He then let Bela have free reign on your physical and emotional well being. How the hell do you still hold such hate for Bela and give that man you call a father a free pass? I understand forgiving your mother to a point because she was “abused” by your father but the rest of this speech is complete stupidity it makes me wonder if Dominique should be committed. She is in serious need of therapy.
Can someone explain to me what is so hard to understand about this code? Yes there are a lot of things confusing about it when it comes to connection bonus and skills but adding and subtracting is learned in 1st grade and if the every 4 year fans can’t understand math then that is on them not the scoring system.

In the last few days Bela and Marta celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary. They had a big party and a lot of Bela’s favorite pupils flew into Texas (I think) for the party and the only thing I could think of when I saw this picture was really?
You people really want to celebrate this man and the child abuse he has inflicted over you as children? You really want to celebrate Marta and the head games she plays on teenagers like Brenna Dowell or Mackenzie Wofford?
I know Kim Zmeskal wants to be the next Marta but what excuses do Chelle Stack and Kristie Phillips give when partying with people like this?
My next question is where the hell is Nastia? guess she doesn’t need to show up and kiss ass anymore.
I get that Bela is a great coach and motivator to those not being trained by him full time without parents being around and while I understand you need a coach to push you if you want to be successful I just can’t believe how many ex-gymnasts Bela treated like crap actually showed up to celebrate him.
I don’t understand Kim Zmeskal at all. She’s a coach, she has kids would she really send them to Bela if he was still coaching?
Back in the beginning days of Kim Zmeskal’s coaching career the rumor was Kim Zmeskal acted just like Bela but she was confronted by some parents and realized she needed to change her ways. You would think by now she would grasp the concept that she was mentally and emotionally abused by this man and she would move past attempting to still get his approval.
I wonder if Dominique Moceanu was invited
Swiss Cup Results

Gymnastics existed and things happened. Who knew the world didn’t stand still when I had my mind on a different sport?
Here is some of the things that happened over the last two weeks since I was gone.
Pheobe Mills will be judging Snow boarding at the Olympics. I don’t know about you but I find this kind of cool.
Beckie Downie has a new combination on bars. Pretty impressive. I didn’t see any bad form issues thanks to the angle but it will be interesting to see if she can actually hit a bar routine when it matters.
Leyva has a new vault.
Aly Raisman thinks she is Shannon Miller and is attempting to save the world.
Larisa Iordache won the Authur Gander Memorial Its too bad she could not have performed like this at Worlds.
