OC, How could you.

July 31, 2011

Oh you people have no clue who O.C. is. Heck you might read this article and wonder still who the hell he is. So for the sake of my non baseball fans I will spell it out for you in this way,

OC was traded to the Giants which means Mr Dantzscher has been optioned to Triple-A

Looks like in 4 months when Jalynne marries the boy she will be marrying a minor leaguer NOT a big leaguer.

The Choker quits.

July 29, 2011

Here are the starting orders for Nationals. Besides the usual fixing of the order to have a gymnast finish on their best event so the judges can try and fix their win, you will notice Mattie Larsen’s name is not on the list.

Rumor has it that Mattie has decided to go to school at UCLA next year and will not be trying for the Olympics.

Apparently she recently tweeted that she would be competing soon at either school or Nationals it is pretty obvious which one that is if you read the above link.

Mattie Larson the choker has a new nickname. It’s now Mattie Larsen the quitter.

Mattie had no chance of making the Olympic team after she choked away the team gold medal at last years world but to quit a year before the Olympics is the cowards way out.

I know it seems like I hate Mattie (heck it seems like I hate everyone) but I don’t. I just don’t like head cases. I never have.

Classic Videos

July 26, 2011

Watch without sound. Save your soul. As many times as these same people call certain gymnasts names behind their back on these videos they scream for them when they see them in person. That would be like me screaming “Go Nastia” Go Dominique. Gawd I hate hypocrites.

Watch a lot more

US Classic, Seniors. Live blogging

July 24, 2011

Baseball was boring me so I am watching the gymnastics.

Whatever filter they have on this Universal Sports Channel has everyone looking awesome. Shawn looks in great shape. Jordyn looks skinny. Even Chellsie looks like she is as fit as she was as a young senior. I saw the pictures nobody looks as good as they do on my television

Shawn looks nervous, serious and ready to compete. They showed her UB warming up and it looked beautiful.


Macko has a really pretty blue leotard on. Different color blues. Side somi, wobble. Full turn wobble. Nice leap series. Easy double twist dismount.Pretty good routine for her. She is growing on me a little. 14.100 (5.200 start value)

Jordyn has a pretty leo too. Like Macko’s but with purple and black.

Poor Shawn. She looks so nervous.

Jordyn on beam. Well done over used connection. Ugly side somi well done. Pointing those toes well done. Small wobble on her full and it wasn’t connected. 2.5 TWIST LANDING. GREAT routine for Jordyn. 15.200 score (start value 6.100)

Gorgeous UB routine from Shawn til the dismount. Hand down. Wow, legs together on every move. Handstands looked great minus one. The hands down was unfortunate. I was watching the routine checking for those pesky leg separations. She still has the form. 13.550 for a score. Only one point off on execution after the fall. (5.500 start value)

Aly screwed up bars but didn’t fall. Form a mess but then she messed it up again. Head not in the game on this event. If I remember correctly she did this last year at Classics and nailed Nationals. Pretty leotard. 12.450 I would say that is generous. (start value, 5.700)

Mckayla Maroney on beam. Nailing things so far. As soon as I say that she bobbles twice. Sorry Mckayla. 14.550 (start value, 5.900)

Gabby Douglas- Bars– Muscled the whole routine. Had multiple form issues but she nailed the dismount. 14.950 (6.400)

Chellsie on beam. Ugly leotard. Nailed her full. Bobble on Arabian. WOW, F’in Chellsie Memmel pretty much nailed that routine even if her form is suspect. Go old people!!!!! Chellsie eating. lol 14.700 (6.100)

Sabrina Vega on beam– Horrid leotard. I didn’t see any hesitation on that connection Amanda Borden. Punch front, bobble. Back pike, bobble.
Slight bobble on full turn. Another big bobble on a switch ring. Double pike dismount. A little messy. Not a bad routine for a gymnast I don’t like at all. 14.500 (6.100)

They didn’t show Casey Jo Magee on bars. Booo. We want to see the old people.


Rotation 2:

Bridgey on floor- She has no presentation at all. Missed first pass, Full in as her second, step. Kind of messy. This is not fun to watch.
I lost interest sorry. Fall on double pike. Maybe if the girl ate something she would have the power for that routine.

Shawn on beam- She looks less nervous but still mad. I like the leo. It’s different. Kind of pretty.

Off her on laid out full. She nailed that every time in practice. Nailed everything else so far. Except that leap that by the way was completed. Bobble on her full, double pike dismount. Honestly that wasn’t as bad as it seems. She nailed a lot of things in that routine like old times. Everyone messes up at first. This will help her in the long run. 13.500

Mackenzie Wofford keeps nailing events but isn’t shown.

Mckayla on floor.- 3.5 twist was not completed. Now she is messing up some dance. Love this music though I am not sure it’s floor
On her butt on the double arabian with 4 steps back.

Mass-hole on beam. I can say that being from here. Alicia- Nailing beam so far. One bobble, Front pike, Nice routine for Alicia. 15.200 for Alicia. (9,200 execution is a but high but who cares?

Chellsie on floor- Pike double front, Double twist, This music sucks.
2.5 twist. This girl is F’n amazing. Really. Double pike. 13.650 (5.300)

They said special guest in the booth and I said OH GAWD, But it’s Shawn so all is good.


The smile is back. Simple as it is “I don’t have the numbers behind me” I doubted myself” ‘Giving herself a little slack” “Just shaking off the nerve for Visa’s”

Aly on beam- Nailed lay out. Typical Aly beam.

Sabrina on floor- She went out of bounds but I missed it. Started with a full in. Honestly I don’t get the hype. I see a little presentation but not as much as others. She bored me. She is kind of sloppy on all her landings.

Casey Jo Magee on beam- Big bobble on that ugly side somi, nice layout with a small bobble, BIG bobble on her triple turn. Not her best routine. 14.200 i way to high for all those bobbles but she stayed on. Good for her.

Mackenize Wofford is leading the competition at the halfway mark and they have yet to show her. Wouldn’t it be HILARIOUS, If she won this and wasn’t shown. Universal sports must be owned by

Chellsie was low balled on floor.


Alicia on floor- Triple twist, OOB, Double Arabian, Legs together, oob, Might have been OOB on her third pass too. Nice job for Alicia. Love the music but same old routine for her. Double pike, oob. OOB 4 times. The first one might have been two feet but I didn’t see a flag for the third OOB. 13.900 WAY over score.

Yurchenko for Bridgey, Nicely done.

Aly on floor- Double front, punch front, OOB. Nailed her double front piked, Awesome. Triple twist, maybe a little short. Leaps look a little better. Double pike. Not a lot of presentation but well done for her. 14.700 (3 oob, first pass had both feet out)

Yurchenko for Chellsie- zZzZzZZzzzzzz 14.200

Amanda Jetter LIVES!!!!- Beam: Pretty leotard by Jetter. A few bobbles on beam but no huge ones. Her leaps looked good enough here. (except one) I say that because people will say differently. MLT hate. She needs a cookie.

14.600 for Sabrina on vault but it wasn’t shown. Now they are showing it. Sloppy vault especially on the feet.

Mackenzie Wofford LIVES!!!!! Come on Mackenzie: I like this kid even if her mother is a nut. Full in, low. Double pike, low. Marta will not let a Woga-abandoner win this thing if it kills her. “Chubby cheeks” please this kid is a beam poll.

Sophina- Bright leotard. Short leaps, Sorry I checked the baseball score. Missed most.

Taking forever for Woffords score. This is called fixing the score so she can’t win. 13.050. Good bye lead.

Aly can still win this if she nails that Amanar.


Alicia nailed her vaults with the same steps as usual.

Annia Li on bars- wonky full pirouette on low bar, sloppy form. Bent knee’s on her pak and then she falls. On a simple Stalder.
Why is she smiling? Look it’s better to fall now then at Nationals or camp. 14.3 not even possible. It was way too messy. Wow no more Nastia means we fix the UB score for anyone with potential?

Aly on vault- DTY or Amanar. She did the Amanar, off to the side. She was very short. 15.100 umm, no.

Chellsie on bars- Hit her routine but kind of messy. She bent her body weirdly in her jam. The Jam was also later then usual in her routine. I think. Who the hell remembers everything every gymnast does and when??? Oh some people 14.400 (5.600)

Sabrina on bars- She is a mess on this event. Long lines are her only positive. 13.500

Alicia babbles about Alicia.

Macko on bars- I forgot she was here. Marta gambled on her last year and while she hit her bars were not the big score many thought. In fact Bridget beat her on bars. This was her usual routine. 14.750

Jordyn on bars- I forgot about her too. – Not that impressive but she hit it. She labored through it. It will be interesting to see how she scores here vs international OUTSIDE of the US. 15.200 for Jordyn.
(6.5 start value. Execution score was 8.800)

Aly wins, Chellsie 2nd, Sabrina third. Wofford was Ex- Woga-ad to 4th.

It will be interesting to see how well Bridgey is scores on bars vs her sister. 10 Minutes left, will they show her? She messed up so it doesn’t matter. I guess we will have to wait until Nationals. 14.900 (6.1 start value)


Alicia is such a phony. Nice to Shawn’s face but dirty look galore behind her back. Top sit there and laugh with someone you bitch about when she isn’t arioynd is complete crap.

Ross wins junior US Classics. Judges hold up Ohashi again

July 23, 2011

This is getting really ridiculous. Kaitlyn Ohashi seems like a nice kid and she is an amazing gymnast but trying to hold her up every time she competes because she is coached by Valeri is not doing her any favors.

Kyla bars

Kaitlyn bars
Kaitlyn beam

Ohashi fell twice (once off beam and once on floor) and almost put her hand down on her messy ugly dismount on bars yet she would have won over a clean (albeit messy on beam) Kyla Ross with only 1 fall and a near fall?


1-Kyla Ross 15.250 15.000 14.650 13.950 58.850
2-Lexie Priessman 15.450 13.650 14.800 14.150 58.050
3-Katelyn Ohashi 14.550 15.000 14.950 13.450 57.950
4-Sarah Finnegan 13.750 14.200 14.200 14.500 56.650

Rebecca Bross. Can she be any uglier?

July 23, 2011

No not her looks but her gymnastics.

Here is her bars from training and they are a complete mess. Sloppy form, labored. A mess is an understatement.

For those thinking they would be free of Nastia Liukin here at Classics I have bad news. The publicity whore is here to ruin our sport for her own personal gain. She can’t let Shawn Johnson get any TV air time without her face being shoved down our throats.

US Classic podium training

July 22, 2011

Video’s of training are all over youtube.

I love Alicia’s floor music. I like Shawn’s floor music. Both of their routines remind me of each others. Arm movement. First pass. Arm movement, second pass. Dance… Were they choreographed by the same person?

The best part of watching these video’s is seeing Alicia roll her eyes at Shawn performing before her. Alicia is the queen bitch of this group and her hatred of Shawn is typical teenage bull shit. What? You are telling me that Alicia is A BLEEPING ADULT? No way. Too bad she never acts like she is.
