Aly signed another endorsement deal with Pandora Jewelry. I love their braclets but the prices are ridiculous. Not sure how this endorsement is good for the company since Aly’s fans aren’t rich enough to buy this stuff but it is still good for her.
Aly will also be honored in Florida for being Jewish, something she had no control over.lol but okay.
Now in news having nothing to do with Gymnastics a shout out to Miguel Cabrera for winning the triple crown in baseball, something that has not been done in over 30 years (I still love you Yaz:)
I am sorry I have had some sad non related gym news on this site lately but I have to do another one that made me cry (yes I have feelings:) I remember reading about this baseball player having a baby the night his team clinched a playoff birth and when I saw the Yahoo headline the first thing I thought of was his baby.
And in Gymnastics news someone sent me this diddy from Morgan Dennis’s facebook. Think about this next time you get in a car.
I just want to share this with my friends and hopefully people will pause, step back, and think about how precious life is.
On Tuesday night, I was driving to Atlanta to stay with some family friends before catching a flight to NY Wednesday morning. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned and I got into a very bad car accident. I was on a 2 lane road in Douglasville, GA. The car in front of me stopped suddenly causing me to slam on my brakes, I swerved into oncoming traffic and was hit by a tractor trailer on my driver side. I was not wearing my seat belt and was thrown into the passenger seat upon impact. THANK GOD, I was able to escape with only some burns and bruises. I kicked out my passenger door and was able to walk away, literally. It was by the grace of God that I survived and I am truly thankful to be alive right now.
I hope I can inspire the people who read this not to take life for granted and always wear your seatbelt! I had
an extremely bad habit of not wearing mine, but Lord knows, from now on I will! I want to thank the O’Neal’s (Gary & Helen) for being so wonderful to me, coming out to the accident site and getting some things out of my car while I was at the hospital, staying with me in the hospital all night, doing everything to make sure I was okay and even helping me decide whether or not I should catch my flight to NY just a few hours later (believe it or not, I was still trying to go to NY). I stayed with them and they also drove me to Alabama last night where we met up with Jill Pruitt Lancaster, who drove me back to Tuscaloosa. And I can’t forget my baby sis Hunter Alexandra Dennis who took awesome care of me once I got back!
I am so grateful to everyone who was here for me and cared for me over the past few days. The phone calls, texts, and everything else were so appreciated. Words can’t express how much I thank you and love you all! I am so blessed!
