I had to label this under Shut up Shannon even though she said nothing to annoy me today. This mention is about Shannon finally getting some credit from the main stream media.
I reserve the right to change my mind if ESPN.com actually names another gymnast ahead of Shannon but I am pretty shocked she got her named on a list of greatest Olympians. It’s only been 16 years. What took you so long main stream media????
Then they went and gave her the credit she deserved for being the gymnast to lead the US to gold. (overall it was her score that carried the team to Gold)
Just don’t watch the videos. Some of these Olympians are just plain idiots.
Apparently I missed the other lists and I spoke too soon. ESPN is full of idiots. I guess I give them half credit for putting her name on this list.
If that doesn’t work then look to your right. They have links.
ESPN makes NO SENSE, How do you make a comment like this and then put Mary Lou Retton ahead of Shannon Miller?
If Mary Lou Retton put U.S. gymnastics on the map, Miller redrew it
You can’t argue with the top 10 IMO. Michael Phelps, Carl Lewis, Mark Spitz, all amazing Olympians.
And just because I don’t want to give this next article it’s own blog I expect you to read this article. Consider it homework. Then I want you to laugh with me because you have to imagine Nastia reading this article and getting sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo mad. It made me smile:)
