2012 Olympic team to be at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade

According to this article


Aly visited our local idiots on the radio last Thursday or as I should say our current local idiots because that guy is wearing a Tigers shirt.

Tour article about Aly. Boston sold out the show which is here tonight. Sigh Boston sigh.

Kyla was honored at the Lakers game (with other Olympians and video of her coaches receiving her street plaque showed up on youtube She was on tour at the time

. Not like daddy Peter has anything better to do right now and the stuff he has done like over pay Rask and screw over Tim Thomas the REASON we won the Stanley Cup is bad anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One day I will learn how to spell Chiarelli πŸ™‚ Hopefully he will be fired so I don’t have too.

    Hmm no Nastia at this parade?

  2. Case Says:

    I heart Aly for referencing the Michigan show. I’m sure Boston fans will deliver too.

    PS Nothing wrong with a Tigers shirt. πŸ™‚

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Yes there is something wrong with a Tigers shirt when you LIVE AND WORK IN BOSTON:)

      16 thousand people at the Boston show. INSANE little city I live in

      • Case Says:

        That’s cool though because its all about Aly. Good for Boston.

        What kind of turnout would be typical for Boston when one of the stars is not a local?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Alicia too I suppose at least for not every 4 year fans

  3. Case Says:

    I also think the Fierce Five is making a New Years Eve appearance on one of the major networks.

  4. sanitynmotion Says:

    When is this tour over already.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      It has to be soon.lol

      • Surfergirl Says:

        …and then USA-G will announce there will be a second tour since the first was such a moneymaker. LOL

    • sainabou nyang Says:

      The 18th I believe. How much you wanna bet that every single person on that tour is happy its over. The last show everyone will be counting down the minutes until its over aso they can collect their next check.

      Then in the next few weeks we’ll hear about retirements and comebacks.

    • mim Says:

      i know, i feel like this bloody tour has been going on forever.

      • sainabou nyang Says:

        Were all tired as if we were actually on the tour lol.

        Also come on Anna li and give us another blog with full details of the tour. Lol

      • mim Says:

        haha, i know. i agree, wish anna would spill some more juicy tour details!

  5. JAS4 Says:

    This tour seems to be extremely long lol

  6. Gymnerd Says:

    Is there a tour stop in Virginia Beach? Wonder what kind of turnout they’ll get for Gabby…er…”GABRIELLE”??? LMAO.

  7. Sarah! Says:

    One more parade I won’t be watching. Why can’t the Macy’s Day Parade or whatever it’s called have the Romanian team on it, with Raluca Haido doing a go-go dance in a mini skirt? We have tickets to the Rose Bowl, and my masochistic parents want to go to the parade in freezing 40-degree weather, but I refuse to leave this house. I hope the Fucked-up Five freeze to death on the east coast like the dummies they are..


    GTT: I also hope you weren’t harmed by Sandy.

  8. sanitynmotion Says:

    GTT nice Annia Hatch shout out on Twitter, lol.

    And did anybody else see Jordyn’s uploaded pic of a Fierce Five cake…she, Gabby, and ASac were posing behind it. Like how embarrassing, ASac. Rub some salt in those wounds, why don’t ya.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I cannot stand Annia Hatch and she is just as bad as Marta for acting like she deserved to make that team, urgh.

      I did not see the picture

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        So now I want to know the inside scoop – why did Marta favor Annia (like what did she have that the other girls at the time did not?) – didn’t think a DTY would matter that much. Was this another “diversity” ploy?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        She wanted Annia on the team. I think she felt her DTY was better then everyone elses and that would get a huge score. It got a great score but not as great as Marta had hoped.

        Annia did not deserve to be on that team. It was a travesty and it was why Mohini had to be used. Marta thought Mccool was better then she was and when she freaked out they had no back up.

        Annia also had a great shot at an individual medal on vault.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        I guess – given this – wouldn’t the real travesty be Mohini making the team? I mean, Annia could somewhat compare to McKayla (NOT her vault itself, but just given that she had a very strong chance of getting an individual vault medal and would only be used on that one event). I can’t lie I had my head up my ass in ’04 but I can’t remember there being a solid event that Mohini had under her belt; I thought she was only there because of the Pam Anderson connection (which in my opinion is a travesty, too).

        I guess what I’m saying is I can only understand Annia being on that team if Mohini wasn’t. They should have taken a better floor worker over Mohini (don’t know who that would have been at the time – Tasha Sweigert or whatever her name was?) I would have loved Hollie on there over Annia too…

        I wonder to if McCool would have made it to the team had it not been for the top two in Trials get the automatic berth. But then again, if Marta really had not wanted McCool on there, she could have just pulled what she did at Classics and changed the rules to suit her needs.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Marta never wanted Hollie on the team and no matter what she did she was never going to name her.Memmel getting hurt screwed everything up but Marta never wanted Memmel either. Chellsie did great at camp the worlds before and Marta still sent her to Pan Ams instead of worlds. Then Memmel kicked ass at pan ams and everyone else got hurt and she got to compete and saved Marta’s ass.

        Mohini wasn’t even going to make the Olympic Trials until Pam Anderson got involved. People think Marta would never take a gymnast for any reason but her gymnastics but that is bull shit. Sabrina Vega making the world team proved that. Annia making the Olympic team and so many other things.

        Marta gets these idea’s in her head and she refuses to back down.

        McCool was a beautiful gymnast but she wasn’t head strong. Marta gambled she would be scored well due to her beautiful form and technique but she wasn’t. She never got credit for her beam connections outside the US and Marta ignored that.

        Mohini did a good job at the Olympics but her only good event was vault. She got lucky getting credit for her dance move in qualifying but taking a gymnast with 9.8 start values was stupid and it cost the US in the end.

      • Case Says:

        McCool screwed that whole thing up by getting one of the automatic spots. Marta knew she wasn’t good and that’s why Mc-not so-cool sat on the sidelines in Athens.

        Annia didn’t deserve a spot either. Not sure who did…I was not very impressed with our team in 2004. Terin was about the only one I liked. Carly was blah and Kupets was okay.

      • mim Says:

        i always liked courtney mccool for some reason. im not great with gymnasts around that time (at 16 i wasn’t as into watching gymnastics) but i couldn’t stand carly, liked the courtneys and now i love hollie vise’s gymnastics. i never understood why mohini was put on that team. the sport gets attention in olympic years anyway so why on earth would marta care about pammy anderson’s attention to mohini?! you’d think marta would think pamela was not the ideal supporter given her “credentials” lol.

        what was mccool’s deal? i never understood why she was sidelined at the time, i assumed she was injured. did she just have a freak good couple days at trials and she’s normally not good, or there were girls miles better? or did she get nervous in prelims and fail to impress marta? i would have taken mohini off the team and replaced her with vise. and i guess chellsie would have been good to go in 2004. was chellsie injured during 2004 trials or was she screwed over by the selection process?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Rumor was she was freaked out after prelims and messing up in training.

        Chellsie was injured. I think she could only do bars and beam. She was not doing floor.

      • mim Says:

        ah, i just saw your response GTT. i always thought courtney mccool had great lines and just such clean gymnastics, so she was judged harshly in prelims at then marta pulled her out? and i wonder if marta made her mind up about hollie after the 2003 worlds with her bars debacle during the team final.

        what is the sabrina vega/marta connection? something to do with her coach or whatever?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Marta and Bela trained Sabrina’s coach in Romania.

      • Case Says:

        I think the “selection show” for the 2004 Olympic team was one of the worst things USAG could have conjured up. Poor Hollie Vise.

        It was a total travesty.

      • Case Says:

        Mim, here’s an old article on McCool in Athens from her fathers perspective. Kinda sad.


      • sanitynmotion Says:

        I remember reading this article and thinking that she didn’t mess up “that bad” in prelims to be totally benched like that. Something had to have happened behind the scenes. I mean, ASac messed up on floor in quals but was obviously still allowed to compete them in team finals (same with Nastia on bars…)

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Rumor has it that Courtney was a mess between prelims and team finals. Crying and messing up and pretty much melting down

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Yeah McCool was one of my favorites – her bar/beam work definitely out shined Nastia’s IMO. I loved her beam mount and her double layout dismount on bars was awesome. It was too bad she couldn’t pull it together when it counted. Maybe in a way it’s a good thing that the Olympic Trials selection process is so rough, only because it makes the Olympics seem like a cake walk in comparison and eliminates any future meltdowns of that sort. With so few girls on the team you can’t afford that at all. I wonder what caused her meltdown, or if she just couldn’t handle it, or what. Yet wasn’t the ’04 selection process pretty grueling? (Although now that I think about it, she was a lock from her Trials placement so maybe not in her case).

      • mim Says:

        thanks GTT for the info, and thanks for the article case. definitely was sad to read. shame she felt the pressure like that, but i guess understandable. im happy she’s still involved with gymnastics though!

    • sainabou nyang Says:

      Did Marta have it in for Hollie before worlds 2003? Was it kind of like Anna li an issue with her coach?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I don’t think she was anti Hollie she just wasn’t one of her favorites. Marta has an idea and when she gets it she refuses to change it unless forced like having to take Chellsie in 08.
