Tonight was hilarious. Beside all the matching outfits of parents and their gymnast kids and people that walk around with their credentials because they volenteered 3 days ago I actually saw two sets of gym parents almost get in a brawl. Not one but two.
Hilarious night. Really. I had a lot of fun tonight and none of it had to do with the gymnastics on the floor. When two sets of gym parents almost come to blows over seating and positions for autographs you really have to laugh it off. I hope everyone in section 104 enjoyed the fireworks.
First lets start with all the gymnasts that were in the arena. Right after the meet ends a rush of about 100 girls come crashing down to stand right in front of you. KUDOS to the one security guard who tried to make them sit down. It didn’t work. Not only were the majority of these kids rude little snots but most of them had no problem pushing people out of the way to get better postioning. Not all of them were like that but the one lady that tried to start a fight with one of the junior gymnasts mothers literally was down there with all the 12 year olds.
For the very first time ever I would say Rebecca Bross kind of impressed me. She had this killer look on her face from the second the meet started. You could just tell she wasn’t going to mess this up again. Now Rebecca hitting 8 for 8 must either mean the sky is falling or she is going to fall a part at Worlds.
Mattie Larson’s floor was not as impressive on night two as it was on night one but it was interesting to watch her live. I really think she will be done after this year. Her difficulty leaves a lot to be desired and she isn’t as clean as the scores at Nationals told but overall I think she hit all 8 events too.
Aly Raisman is a very pretty kid in person. She also had a quiet calm about her gymnastics that doesn’t come through on TV. Some relative of hers was sitting in front of me. He kept screaming for Alexandra.
Cassie Whitcomb got the Marta beat down tonight by the judges. It is obvious Marta doesn’t like her for whatever reason. Even MLT looked annoyed after a few of her scores. IMO her floor was docked pretty harsh by the judges.
I don’t even know what to say about Alica Sacramone. I find her on all the time attitude distracting. She also dd very little supporting of the other gymnasts until after floor. I never saw her and Aly talk at all. She did high five Rebecca Bross after floor.
Nastia was in the house doing more hugging. Oh joy. She had on the ugliest ripped jeans I have ever seen. They probably cost her 300 bucks.lol she also had on her trade mark heals and Bridget was making fun of how tall she was compared to her.
For the feel good feeling of the night I over heard Macko and Bridgette Caquatto’s mother talking to another lady about her daughters. She talked about how Macko fell but she got right back up and how proud she was of her. Then she also told the lady about her other daughter who was on the floor . It was just nice how proud she was of both daughters not just the one that did well.
I also saw Mattie Larson wave off her mother and then her mother announced to the arena “Just like a typical teenager”
I am sure I will think of more but that is it for tonight.
