Why do baseball teams get days off?

      Do they really need a game off? They play like ten minutes times 9 in the field and swing a bat what,? 8 times at most 4 or 5 times a game. Then they get days off in the middle of the week (I don’t get a day off in the middle of the week) What does this have to do with a Gymnastics blog? nothing really but it gives me time to over think and then I start blogs like this that ramble and ramble and ramble on, about nothing really.


Gym news,

Aunt Joyce other wise known as David Lease is taking his Skating Lesson podcast into Gymnastics according to this video. As great as this seems I have huge issues with Dave sometimes. He tends to base his opinion of a gymnasts gymnastics on whether he has had coffee with them in the last few months but we will see. He’s been pretty good with the Skating lesson and he puts up with Mary Poppins as a co-host so more power to him. The more success he gets the madder GGMB gets and that is always fun:) I just keep remember how honest he was about Nastia until she befriended him in real life then he deleted his entire blog of all the evidence.

The video to watch starts at 19.05

Aliya carried the torch for the University games.

USA-gymnastics camp news. Don’t expect much, it is from USA-gymnastics. They probably don’t know what went on anymore then we do.lol

    How rude is Marta? the level of difficulty mckayla has after being away for six months??? Its not like on tour they dont do anything….It sounds like this camp was about getting new skills and routines verified for nationals. Maybe Kyla has new floor. Gosh I hope so….

  3. nero Says:

    Mckayla better werrrrrrk. If Jordyn can’t be at worlds then I’m gonna need Mack to slay this year and the coming quad

    I’m talking having a 3 1/2 twisting yurchenko or like a yurchenko triple back or something. Crappy bars and beam be damned if her vault starts out of a 19.3.

    But I still want Jordyn back please. And Kyla to kick some ass with an upgraded floor routine, get some individual medals. Oh and Aly please show up with a pretty floor routine next year.

    • katecoursey Says:

      Yurchenko triple back FTW. I would laugh myself silly if Mack won the AA because her vault scored out of a 19/20.

      • Case Says:

        I’m sure there would still be people on the gymternet that would say such a paltry vault was not the best ever, lol.

      • katecoursey Says:

        Seriously. I remember reading like five comments (all from different people) whining that “noooo Nastia’s vault in ’08 AA was wayyyy better than McKayla’s, she was a better vaulter!”

        I will probably slap the next person who doesn’t know the difference between a 1.5 yurchenko and a 2.5.

      • nero Says:

        Mckayla AA score

        Vault- 18.8

        62.4. Mckayla Maroney. Olympic All Around Champion Rio 2016

      • Katie Says:

        Haha I remember reading someone saying in the leadup to the 2012 classic that nastia should do a triple back on floor so she could be just like her dad.

      • brouhaha Says:

        @nero – Hey, Nastia did that in ’08 basically 🙂 at least Maroney’s other AA events are actually elite level (1.5TY vault at the Olympics? blergh)

    • Katie Says:

      I don’t think her bars and beam are that crappy.

  4. DL Says:

    I think the baseball days off are for travel and logistics like clean uniforms and for the field not to turn completely brown (though this doesn’t explain the fields with Astroturf, but I guess those need attention too).

  5. JAS4 Says:

    I thought Aly wasn’t planning on getting back in the gym until the end of the summer? Maybe she is getting an early start on conditioning and basics to be ready for serious training in the fall.

    • biyatch Says:

      She’s still traveling doing and doing a bunch of appearances this summer so I dont think she can commit herself to full time training yet. She is supposed to do some version of her floor in Israel this summer though so some basic conditioning probably has to occur.

  6. sanitynmotion Says:

    I still think Mckayla Skinner has a worse ego than Gabby. At least Gabby never was super big-headed before even going to ONE competition, nor did she claim to be the best at anything before going senior.

    As for Maroney, I hope she does a complete comeback. It would be nice to see. I’m glad that the 2008 debacle of comebacks did not deter the FF.

    I’ve already said what I thought about Jordyn – think she’s going about it the smart way.

    Aunt Joyce – will be interesting to see his opinions I guess. I don’t follow him much and only know about him because of this blog.

    What did he say to Nastia that made him honest? And why did he delete his blog?

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      He called her out for her fake training and her bad attitude until she befriended him and they went to lunch and then all of a sudden he deleted the whole blog and all the evidence with it. I still think she did it on purpose (befriending him)

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Interesting. So she totally did that for PR. He’s a sell-out then.

    • Tortuga Says:

      Maybe you saw my comment on Skinner from the earlier post. I guess you’re right she’s worse than Gabby since she hasn’t even competed as a senior and wants to call herself the best vaulter in the world?! Just because you do something well in practice doesn’t mean you have it in the bag. What you do in competition is what counts. You haven’t had a chance to prove your self so slow your roll honey child. Also I have a hard time believing anyone else has the amplitude and form that Maroney has. God her Amanar is just gorgeous. Granted we’ve seen videos of her layed out double double she seems to have some difficult skills but I’m waiting to see what she looks like at Classics. I’ll eat my words if it’s impressive.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I think people are making to much of her comments. She could have been being sarcastic. I doubt she meant it as fact.

      • biyatch Says:

        Skinner actually competed as a senior in 2012. She was 15th at Visas in the AA in between Amanda Jetter and Brandie Jay. And 3rd out of 3 on vault.

        55.55 day1, and 52.6 day 2. she was 10th AA at jesolo with a 54.95.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        If she was being sarcastic that’s one thing…I didn’t think about that. But it’s a thin line to tread since she has the goods apparently, so it’s like she’s trying to predict something.

        To me, sarcastic would be more in the lines of something like “Aly Raisman, best bar worker of the quad!” or something like that. But that’s just me.

      • mimi Says:

        based from mykayla’s twitter alone (which probably isnt the fairest way to judge someone but it’s all that’s there really) she doesn’t come across as humourous/sarcastic at all. i think she’s one of those very self-assured girls except in this case im not sure how warranted it is, at least at this stage anyway, and it doesn’t come across as good-natured like it does with mckayla.

        oh well at least she’s confident in her own abilities, spose you need that to succeed in gymnastics!
