I hate working nights.
Interesting read by Jeremy Abbots mom about what it is like to be an Olympians mom. Sure is expensive. You would think the federation of which ever sport it is would set aside some hotels and such for which ever skater did make the team so blindly buying ahead of time wouldn’t be an issue.
Here is the schedule for the Olympic skating. Amazing times for all us East coasters if we didn’t have jobs during the day. If this was the Michelle Kwan era I would have planned ahead of time and known this schedule at least a month in advance but thankfully all I have on my Olympic wish list is a Daisuke Takahashi, Gold medal (and a Patrick Chan debacle) so planning ahead was not needed. Thank God for free Wifi at work 🙂
Aly Raisman thinks she is Shannon Miller and plans on saving the world one eating disorder at a time.
I am in the process (thinking process) of doing a blog on the future of USA-gymnastics based on the unknown names at the most recent camp and I ran across this gif of Catherine Lyons. I know the world seems to think this little girl has potential based on an alleged amazing artistic floor routine I personally don’t see yet but I actually like the skill she does in this video. A full twisting Geinger with pretty good form (until the end but she is clearly trying to do this skill with her feet together) so I appreciate the attempt. Now let hope she fixes the form so I don’t have to be a bitchy blogger 🙂
The second most beautiful Yurchenko full I have ever seen. Well its probably the 5th best but the other 4 were all done by the same person so I will lump them as one. How did this not get a ten?
I think it was Catherine that loved Lloimincia Hall’s floor routine last year where I thought it was complete crap well Lloimincia is back with a new floor routine and I actually love this one. FOR COLLEGE. The expression on her face is pure gold til the end where it gets old but I love the dance before the first pass. The double layout was beautiful too.
