It’s kind of funny when you think Russia’s colours are the same, and all of the glorious they produce in those colours. Red and blue alone…spoiled for nice options. My country’s colours are green, white and orange. Not so great. Also Britain do a fabulous job with red and blue, some great leos incorporating the flag.
Oh yeah, but Russia robbed the blue AA Leo from UCLA!
I like the GK flag leo that Kyla wore at Championships much better then the Aly & Jo adidas Mary Lou remix leo they wore for floor finals. Hoping they can do something classy and tasteful like that and just slap an under armour logo on it for this quad.
Slightly. I don’t trust the Rodionenkos but Grebyonkin will not use her recklessly. It means a lot to her to compete there, as she is ethnic Tartar and Kazan is in that area and he mentioned she is fiercely determined to compete. They’re hoping she can work up to full fitness during the comp, but aren’t letting her replacement, Kramarenko, go anywhere while they might need her. Maybe just bars??
P&G is sponsoring nationals so we go from the visa championships to the P&G Championships. Classics are still without a headline sponsor, but I bet LuAn and Steve are hard at work on this…. AT&T appears to have dropped behind the team, and USAGymnastics sponsorship. I dont know why they dont just hand the Classics sponsorship to Hilton Honors…. No one else wants to cough up $$ for Martas corrupt organization.
Secret (which is a P&G brand, so is covergirl for that matter) is still sponsoring classics. AT&T did a behind the team after american cup. And generally the Hilton naming funding gets funneled to the mens team which tends to receive less interest in corporate financial support.
Dear God people, I hope that was meant as a joke. On Mckayla’s instagram she posted a pic of her and the girls in the ice bath and there were a few “Where’s Gabby??” but I’m pretty sure they were being facetious.
And if there was any doubt about Gabby winning an ESPY here’s one of their commercials.
I think Missy Franklin should win both Olympian and best athlete, but that wont happen. Since best athlete is the most prestigious my money is on Gabby winning that one and Missy winning the other.
And I don’t care if the ESPYs are a joke/fake I really want the FF to win. This is basically their last chance to be recognized for their accomplishments by the general public. Lord knows the Giants, Ravens, Blackhawks, Bama and the Goddamn Heat get talked about enough.
It’s sad too because Aly tweets everyday telling people to vote for her, and we all know she probably won’t win. Apparently she’ll also be at the Maccabiah Games during the Espy’s so she won’t be there anyway, and we all know this award show is about the ratings, so whoever shows up wins (and Gabby will most definitely be there). I love Aly, but realistically I think Missy will get best Olympian, and Gabby best female athlete.
While I’m not a fan of the ‘hotpink’, I really don’t mind non-flag colors for EVENT FINALS (sorry for the caps, but there’s no way to bold or italicize). However, for AA and team finals I definitely like to see some combination of red, white and blue.
That team only really makes sense if Lexie & Simone are going AA and Kyla and McKayla are the specialists as I cant see a scenario of them EVER sending Lexie as a bars beam specialist. Lexie has huge D scores but tends to get hammered on execution.
We wont know until we see how it flushes out at worlds. I could see Marta splitting Kyla / McKayla into Bars Beam / Vault Floor with Simone and Lexie in AA…. Amelia was the other one in that group. Theres no one else close at camp. Brennan will be the alternate, Im surprised no EBee unless shes still injured, or clearly going to college. Can you imagine if EBee Kyla and Ivana were all competing for Stanford at the same time? That would be amazing…
I don’t know much about Dowell besides her winning that meet in Mexico I think at the end of last year/beginning this year I think? I may be remembering the place wrong. Lexie did win the Junior Nationals last year. But she’s never competed at the senior level nationals so we’ll have to see.
Qualification to Championships
– Automatic: 2012 Olympic Team and designated Alternates or
– 54.00 AA, 3 Event=41.25, 2 Event =28.00 at 2013 Classic meet or
– National Team members at Team Training Camp (full routines on
competition surfaces) or
– International Assignment
confused. or can marta just do whatever the hell she wants?
Also interesting to note that DJ Hernandez is who is a graduate assistant at the University of Iowa’s football program, was mistaken for his “killer” brother Aaron last weekend at a bar. They do look alot alike.
What can we expect? Its the Texas Rangers! Ha ha. It irks me that someone would squander their God-given talents like he did. I DO however wish & hope for his son to succeed in his own right. Manny Sr created a circus-clown personna instead of just playing baseball. Maybe Manny Jr will be another Prince Fielder & overcome all the obstacles their screwed up Dads put in their paths.
Shawn is on her DWTS cruise tour right now. Having been on a few cruises, the never-ending buffets cause everyone to gain weight.
By the way, I highly recommend the Reebok running shoes that are similar to the Nike Flyknit shoes…..but they’re half the price. I will be running a race in them in a few weeks. So far, one of the best training shoes I’ve worn. I also like Asics for training.
Is anyone on here old enough(besides me) to remember Tiger running shoes? They have made a come-back. Lightest, best running shoes ever. I wore them for high school cross country.
