Komova comeback number 307



It’s a start.

Bars looked beautiful. Killer handstands, beautiful lines. Great form. 5.3 + 8.35 = 13.65 score. Her beam was in the 11’s but even with the usual strict judging so far I thought this was semi low. If she had hit the dismount most it would have been was low to middle 12.

Jordan Chiles

(Vault) (Bars) (Beam) (Floor)

I was ready to call her out on another performance she didn’t do her job (which she technically didn’t) but besides the falls I thought she looked good. That was the best beam routine we have seen from her in forever and her bars looked great til she fell. With the exception of her first handstand she was hitting them all. Maybe someday she will become consistent though at this point I doubt it. I wonder why she didn’t do the Amanar.

Who can explain to me Melinikova even getting close to the same execution score Chiles received on Vault? Someone tell Seitz that in 2018 there is no excuse for doing a Yurchenko full. Watching Voss and seeing her scores reminded me of the US and the Scam Cup. Hey we almost made it through an entire competition with out a wolf spin on beam ( damn you Melnikova) She had such a good routine going til the fall then she fell apart. I fell asleep during this Beampocalypse I had to go back and watch again. I love we are getting real beam mounts. Yep time for a scam cup score for Seitz on beam. Chellsie Memmel moved to the Netherlands and changed her name to Tisha. Melnikova getting a 13 with that floor was interesting. If she had not tumbled forward 6 times that might have been in the 14’s. Voss would have won if she didn’t fall on floor.lol Yeah, okay. I can’t believe I sat through this whole thing. Someone tell the boy sitting next to Elisabeth’s mom he’s a rude SOB sitting on the top of that chair. The lady behind can’t see.

Oklahoma vs Alabama

I am not usually an Alabama hater but some of their Floor scores rival the overscoring Florida gets every meet. Kiana got her College retiring gift early.


2018 American cup


Sorry for the delay in blogging but a little over a month ago I decided to take a month long sabbatical from using the internet and haven’t been online since January. My internet black out was more a personal thing but also somewhat related on a much smaller scale to this blog which honestly has become quite a chore as of late. I guess I just needed a break, from the internet life.

Thanks to Meredith, Michelle, Jas, Danielle and Isabella for the e-mails and your concern for my welfare. I really do appreciate that you took the time to not only find my e-mail but send me a message.


Results with start values


Live is somewhat a stretch. Lets watch kids dance instead of vaults.

Start Lists

I am making a guess this year at the winners. I predict Mai Murakami will get screwed which will bring the Scam cup moniker back to life 🙂 Why can’t we get the likes of Kenzo, Mai and any gymnast from China at gymnastics meets I get to attend?

2018 Nationals

It’s the worst year possible to have a Nationals so of course it comes to the Fleetcenter, AKA, BOSTON:)(It’s not the Garden and will never be called the Garden by me)

It’s a good thing they announced this because Sox tickets went on sale.

I can’t stand Adam Rippon. He’s a conceited douche bag and nothing makes me happier then seeing spoiled , cocky brats, fall on their ass and be brought down to earth but tonight, there was NO REASON he should have been trying a quad. It wasn’t necessary and the same with Jason Brown but because of the judging system allowing cheated quads to get just as much credit as clean triples everyone feels the need to throw one or 2 in that they can’t hit. IT’S RUINING THE SPORT.

Who wants to watch skaters throw and fall or mess up a quad with shitty skating skills and next to no transitions yet these same skaters still win the PCS mark. It’s just wrong.

The Olympic team…

Nathan, Jason and Adam made the GPF which means they won multiple medals during the skating season. Think about that for a second. They have already had to peak 3 more times then anyone else at these “Nationals AKA As Olympic trials” How is that fair? You make the system decide the Olympic team so while they are working their butts off to peak multiple times the Zhao’s of the world are home resting or choking away their PGF events.There is something wrong with that.

Listening to Tara and Johnny all night makes me want to slit someones throat. They are completely biased in favor of Nathan Chen, calling him an “artist on the ice” ARE YOU KIDDING ME? and Adam and 100% discounting Jason Brown it reminds me of listening them discount Ashley the last 3 days.

Are they being told ahead of time who will make the team and being told to discount the skaters, USFSA is clearly over?

I was talking with some internet peeps over e-mail during these last few days and we have all come to the conclusion that this is just like Nastia and Tim calling Gabby a member of the 2016 Olympic team BEFORE it happened.

Yes, Jason finished 6th here but Tara and Johnny didn’t even mention he has a chance to go to the Olympics as they were making excuses for why Adam should have made the team over Zhao. Well no offense to Miner and Zhao but the Olympic team should be the 3 guys that did all the leg work the last 4 months the GPF has been going on. Either that, or take the top 3 at Nationals because Jason AND Adam should be a matching set on this Olympic team. They have similar results and if one goes the other should go.

If the Olympic team ends up being, Chen, Zhao and Rippon you have your proof.

I really don’t know why I watch these sports anymore.

Happy New Year. Bring on 2018

Here is to everyone having a Happy and healthy New Year. Anyone have any New Year Resolutions?

I want some happy TV endings that have no chance of happening. A Red Sox World series win (in 4 short games AKA as a sweep) and a Superbowl for the Patriots, the destruction of the Boston Celtics and a lottery win of over 200 million after taxes for myself ( I ask for these same things every year tho:)


Yang Yilin is visiting Chows gymnastics and this picture showed up in my e-mail from someone who thought I might like to see it. Seems like my ranting about the 2008 Olympics especially that bar final is well known (Who would ahve thunk it:)

One of those girls is Norah Flatley. I forget who the other is.

Am I the only one that feels there is something off with this father? The little girl is adorable and she seems like this is her dream (by the short video) but I don’t know. Daddy seems a bit of a stage dad.

She competes Sunday.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas. Hanukkah is over but for those that celebrate it I hope you had a great Holiday too. Just a reminder Christmas is a religious holiday so if you have a Christmas tree and bash religion or those that follow it you are a hypocrite.

“I would rather live my life as if there is a god and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is.”

― Albert Camus

Sorry to bring Religion into this blog. I am not a religious person but it’s been a little over a year since my operation and I guess I am just reflecting on a lot of things. My life changed drastically over the last year. I think I took a lot of things for granted that I now realize I shouldn’t have and lets just say, sometimes, the consequences of your actions can sometimes take a toll on your mental well being. SO… I hope everyone has a great year and I will now stop babbling 🙂

In other news!!!!

Ashton Kutcher has decided she wants to be the next Shawn Johnson…

Whatever you do Ashton, Don’t give hair advice. (Roots girl. Your roots)

Oh and remember a few years ago when I was like annoyed, Nastia got engaged to a Boston guy? well reasons like this are why. I was minding my own business, walking down the street and I noticed the new Improper Bostonian was out and lets just say, someone has invaded my space It’s the first time EVER I have walked by the magazine and not taken one. #WhyBostonNastiaWHY

Aly and Alicia have both appeared on this magazine but they are from here. All the bitchy one has done is get permanently engaged to some guy I have never heard of.

Someone sent me an e-mail telling me Bridget Sloan has been liking Nastia’s posts on instagram again. Guess their feud is over too.

That same person also told me Katelyn Ohashi is having a bit of whiplash in the twitter hypocrisy department tweeting nasty comments calling out the people calling out Lizzy Leduc for getting kicked off the Illinois gymnastics team but then tweeting that everyone should be nicer to each other online.

She made that team” well that was rude, Katelyn.

Hopefully The Happy New year post will be full of less teenage drama….. 🙂

Komova’s comeback


This is like my third blog about her coming back but considering this is the first time she has competed the All Around in years she didn’t do that bad of a job.

Her form issues seem to be back and with a fall on beam she wasn’t perfect but I am proud of her. Most people would have quit by now but Vika is fighting on.

There is really no reason to peak now, anyway.

Viktoria’s routines

: Vault : Bars : Beam

In other news….

Larisa Iordache had a second surgery in December according to the Couch gymnast…. I forget they exist sometimes. They need to advertise their website a little more.

Aliya will be back in April

Michelle Kwan is back on the Ice
and this is literally the most beautiful thing I have seen since, well, since she retired. She claims she isn’t training for anything but, come on. Look at that spiral? There has to be a reason she is on the ice.

Voronin Cup Videos..

For the Nabieva fans, here is her Floor exercise… And her Bars… and her Beam

I suppose we should mention, Angelina Melnikova since she won the AA. You know what, I really like her. She needs to get her head in the game because a lot of her mistakes seem to be stupid little bobbles and lack of concentration. She had a decent floor routine going til the end and she needs to retire that wolf turn. She never completes it. On beam, floor, it’s a disaster. No way she gets credit for it.

: Beam : Floor

The Future…

Vladislava Urhazova has a lot of skills in this beam routine but none of the polish you usually see from the Russian’s. I’m assuming she’s a junior.

Aleksandra Schekoldina has a lot of potential too but she turns senior next year if the video of her beam routine is correct which means she doesn’t have a lot of time to get it together. That mount tho….

Little, Darya Yassinskaya is a bundle of energy with no control but I kind of like her. She reminds me of a young, Shayla Worley without the dance ability.

Gronk Spike


What ? You didn’t expect Gymnastics info on a gymnastics blog did you????

Now before Case yells at me, the ball was moving. He didn’t have control.

Seriously besides Lizzy Leduc being kicked off the Illinois Gymnastics team for teenage things the sport is dead right now so I gloat 🙂

Voronin Cup details (Thanks Rocio)

Bye Felicia


I mean Russia.

I do feel bad for the people who weren’t cheaters at the last Olympics like our current, world Champion in Figure Skating ( who will probably get to go anyway) but you gotta love how doping is this big taboo yet blatantly cheating for Adelina Sotnikova 4 years ago is a none issue.

I do believe 99.9999999 % that if you don’t punish the Country you are wasting your efforts because no lesson will be learned and allowing exceptions like they are doing with Russia is not going to stop this from happening again. So why bother?

I finally have something to blog about 🙂

Shannon Miller in another hall of fame.

Take a Hint


Who can tell me why I am obsessed with this song and can’t get it out of my head?

” Ask me for my number yeah you put me on the spot”
” You think that we should hook up but I think that we should not”
” You had me at hello then you opened up your mouth”
” And that is when it started going south”

” Get your hands off my hips”
” Before I punch you in the lips”
” Stop you staring at my, HEY..”
” Take a hint, take a hint”

” I guess you still don’t get it so lets take it from the top”
” You asked me what my sign is and I told you it was stop”

GET OUT OF MY HEAD and the title, tho… Hollyweird, take note.

Isn’t there Gymnastics going on somewhere in the world?????

Thanks Rocio….

Now sing with me…

“Take a hint. Take a hint”
