Hello all. I am back from the American Cup. A competition I like to call people watching.
I had a great time with my two B.F.F’s Riley and Quinn. They are kind of loud and obnoxious and yelled at some little girl for standing in their way because as you know from my past competitions, little gymnasts can be rude, ignorant little fuckers and the only people in this world that trump little asshole gymnasts is their stage parents.
I did see some great stuff so here we go.
I saw Nastia yell at some guy that I believe works for USA-gymnastics or NBC. He was setting up her table for NBC and he said something to her, pointed at the table and she yelled at him, rolled her eyes and turned to the right and shook her head. Nastia is a crazy ass spoiled little Russian bitch. It is that simple.
After Katelyn was done with her practice on beam Valeri spent about ten minutes with his daughter talking by Floor while Katelyn was over by the floor apparently coaching herself. I remember thinking, why is she training herself over by floor?
I also saw this hilarious phony like interaction between Gabby and Nastia. Nastia came over to Gabby and they has a conversation with a few “smiles”. Then when they ended the conversation Nastia went to hug Gabby and Gabby looked a little shocked that a hug was coming her way. She had this look of okay, a hug. It was pretty funny to watch because they sat next to each other for at least a half an hour (about 5 feet between them) before even looking at each other. Gabby acted like she could care less that Nastia was around.
I watched Gabby Douglas on the sidelines quite a bit. It might surprise you to hear this but she actually seemed quite normal for the most part. Several people came up to talk to her and she posed for pictures with them. These weren’t regular people but someone that works behind the scenes but she wasn’t yelling at them like a certain Nastia Liukin. She did ignore people when they called her name from the crowd unless Aly was around but overall I didn’t see any Diva like behavior. I did get a picture of her in the process of picking her nose. She did this a few times.
My friend Quinn was like, Gabby dresses like my grandmother and I spit my water on my lap. Thanks for that Quinn:)
Aly Raisman is in the process of being the star of a new movie called, Miss Congeniality 3. If someone called her name she turned around and waved. If someone blew her a kiss she turned around and blew them a kiss. She never seemed to ignore anyone that paid her any attention to her and the phony smile we see on Nastia whenever a camera is around was not on Aly’s face at all during this competition.
When Aly sat down at the table she noticed Nastia and waved. I never looked at Nastia but Aly seemed genuine in being happy to see Nastia. I did not get the impression that they had seen each other at all before this time
Now about the competition.
Katelyn Ohashi looked like she was miserable the entire time she competed. When we first walked down to our seats Katelyn was on beam. She was hitting everything she tried but every time Valeri looked at her she gave him the dirtiest look known to man kind. She seemed annoyed by everything he said to her. The only other time I saw that look on a gymnasts face it was Vanessa Atler in 2000 and we all know that Vanessa hated training at Woga. I remember Vanessa mouthing back at Valeri and rolling her eyes in 2000.
I was actually quite surprised by the scores Katelyn received. They were scam overscored but not nearly the overscoring we have seen her get in the past. Her vault was piked at the hips and her twist seemed close to not being complete but I thought her beam was a little bit of an underscore.
Katelyn ignored Simone most of the time I watched her. During the competition she ignored Simone until Simone fell. Than all of a sudden she talked with her. At one point Katelyn was about to take a step back and was getting close to the end of the mat and Simone touched her on the shoulder. Katelyn just looked at her like, why are you touching me and Simone smiled and pointed to the mat Katelyn almost backed off of.
I didn’t get the impression Katelyn was being rude I think she was just focused on what she had to do but as soon as Simone fell her tune changed.
Simone Biles is a star in the making. I even enjoyed watching her live. She easily had the loudest applause for the women from the first introduction. I think she would have won this competition without the fall on beam. When she fell she was crying on the beam which is never a good thing to do.
Victoria Moors is one miserable little girl.lol I only saw her crack a smile once when she saw Aly sitting and she went up to talk to her. They seemed excited to see each other.
At one point after beam she and Simone and Katelyn were about to talk and Valeri literally swished Katelyn and Simone away from the talk. Victoria went back to the mad look.
Vanessa Ferrari spent most of her time alone and she never smiled either. She had the same look of, why am I hear the entire day.
Elizabeth Seitz spent a long time on beam. I never saw her coach anywhere.
The little girl from Great Britain also looked miserable the entire time. She never changed her expression.
The little girl from Japan also spent a long time on beam training. She worked a lot on her double turn trying to connect it to another turn.
Kyla was not a happy camper either. I personally think she wanted to be competing and wasn’t happy about being on the sidelines but at least she smiled and talked with other gymnasts. After the meet was over she was smiling a lot and I saw her and Katelyn posing with some stuffed animal.

I watched Marta but she never did anything fun or annoying. She just stood there, watching. She even smiled and talked with people.
That is all I remember for now on specific attitudes. The guys are a lot friendlier than the women. They were always seen talking to each other. The only guy that looked annoyed or pissed was Daniel Pervis. He is really cute in person.
Jake Dalton is also really cute and he was amazing yesterday on floor. His first pass was amazing and even his pommels looked okay.
LLeyva looked a mess. It was weird that the on guy training the longest looked like shit.
The guy from Ukraine is really tiny.
Not sure about twitter updates because I can’t sign out of my real name on my phone but I am working on it.
See you tomorrow
