It grew on me towards the end. Though the music reminds me of that camp Granada song half way in  ( Take me home o mother,  father, take me home I hate Granada don’t leave me out in the forest where I might be eaten by a bear!!!!)

While I was at the Fens

June 27, 2013

While Bruins fans were drowning their sorrows in another choke job by Tuuuuuuka Rask in their playpens (bandwagon girly fans and weird teenagers have taken over the Nation) I was at the Fens doing something constructive, watching the Sox win (AKA as NOT Rasking away the game, formally known as Bailey-ing the game away)

The Peszek’s are taking over!!!!

Being Marta’s prison wife got her first daughter on the Olympics team so must be doing something right.

Shannon Miller had a daughter and named it in honor of her AA Silver medal from the 92 Olympics. “I didn’t lose Gold I won silver” now has a whole new meaning for Shannon Miller:)

Kyla Ross showed us her new floor routine. I like it. Much better than her Phantom one. (I tried embeding this 3 times it won’t work. This is the 4th time

Aly had her Pandora Jewelry line endorsement renewed and trained some kids in Saugus The first article is all about Aly teaching the girls great form.

Rumor Central: The real reason Jordyn is not competing this year

June 24, 2013

This is a rumor and the old disclaimers about this info not being mine and you believing what you want and me not being to blame for you thinking anything is still in effect.


What do you think?

Thanks to Sara in the comments section for the article from a blog.

Look what I found. The Disclaimer 🙂

I found the BAN PINK petition.
If this thread is true imagine the people who could see this and SIGN THE PETITION


Dearest Tim Thomas, Tuukka Rask SUCKS. THE END

The Future

June 16, 2013

We have talked about Laurie Hernandez before on this blog and she recently won the Parkette’s invite. This is her new floor routine.

She’s a beautiful gymnast and while I am not loving this newest routine there is no denying the kid is the future of USA-gymnastics. I’ll try to forget she’s a Skankee fan:)

Mai Murakami at the NHK

June 13, 2013


According to the youtube video it has a 6.0 start value and received quite a few deductions (6.0 )+ 8.25 – 14.25

Pretty impressive. I love the way she uses the no standing in a corner rule. That was the cleanest double double I have seen by anyone (even if landed low) Mai is still cute as a button and I wish Japan would have taken her to the Olympics last year even if just for floor.

Junior meet: Romania vs France

June 8, 2013


This happened a day ago. Romanian junior Andreea Munteanu won the AA with a 55.6

MY Opinion

The most impressive Romanian to me was Andreea Iridon. She finished third with two falls but she had beautiful toe point, a killer Memmel turn on floor and Romania has great potential with this one on bars. She fell but she had her legs together the entire time and hit her handstands. I was very impressed with it. She received a 12.9 with a fall. ( she won event finals with a 14.35)

1. Andreea Munteanu (ROM), 55.6
