10 years ago today

10 years ago tonight, this happened.

I couldn’t find a video of the game or the last out but this sums it all up pretty nicely:)

Oh and this is a lot of fun too

I know I complain about the Red Sox a lot and even this series but I guess I wouldn’t change a thing. Its what made us what we are today. Though Damon being an asshole I would change.

    Super jealous.

    Its too bad the majority of this team showed what assholes they were after the fact. Hey if I can admit it it must be true:)

    I hope the Tigers re-sign Max and I hope you don’t hate the Red Sox when they throw money at him but sadly I see him like Lester both will become Yankees.

    Oh and I must say, Lets go San Fran🙂

  4. SuperFran Says:

    I just signed up to be a volunteer at the 2015 worlds in Glasgow. Fingers crossed that my application gets accepted!

    • Melanie Says:

      That’s awesome! I hope you get it!

      • SuperFran Says:

        Thanks Melanie, I read via tumblr about a gymnastics fan who volunteered for the 2013 worlds and she ended up meeting all the gymnasts. Lucky duckling.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Good Luck. Sometimes people watching is more fun than the meet. No make that all the time.

    • Dee Says:

      That would be awesome! Hope you get selected so you can give us some inside scoop😉

    Aly is going to camp!!
    I guess McKayla is still recovering.


    • Gymbee Says:

      She posted on Instagram that she was packing her inspirational card pack🙂

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        I know. I saw that. I was like yay. Whatever she is packing– I’m just glad she is going. Too bad I hear they won’t release any videos from this camp.

        Maybe we can protest so Marta releases something lol

      • Gymbee Says:

        I know, I’m so happy she’s going! Ugh. Wish they’d post.

  6. JAS4 Says:

    I am guessing that maybe they want to see where Aly and Gabby are at with their training before posting any videos. Then again since it’s the year before the Olympics maybe Marta doesn’t want any videos.

    • SuperFran Says:

      so aly and gabby are at camp, the worlds team including desch are on holiday… Who’s NOT there? Ohashi?

      • Melanie Says:

        Ohashi, Maroney, Priessman, Gowey, Nichols…all of those are still recovering except for Gowey. I can’t remember if Deanne Soza is there or not, but I doubt it considering her vision is still iffy.

      • Melanie Says:

        Oh, and Brenna Dowell and Peyton Ernst aren’t there. I wonder if Brenna’s finally thrown in the elite towel? I know she’s headed to OK in the fall, but something tells me she might give it another run next summer.

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        Brenna is listed in Oklahoma’s 2014-15 roster as a freshman (and is in this year’s team photo) so she’ll be there in January for this season.

        I guess she can still come back to elite but there is no way Marta will take her seriously– she didn’t before so no way now.

      • Melanie Says:

        Ah, I meant to write “spring,” not “fall.” Thank you for correcting that! You’re right, too, Marta will never put her on a Worlds team.

      • gymbot Says:

        Ohashi’s fast return is wishful thinking. I hope she is healthy, but she only just recently started gaining back elite level skills

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        Well I guess we know where Gowey is this weekend. I wonder what Marta thinks of that lol

    At least we know they are actually in camp!

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Gabby looks like she gained some weight from the last time we saw her. Maybe she is finally going through puberty and will go away now.

      • Melanie Says:

        It’s weird, but that was my first thought, too. She looks as big (or bigger) than Aly in this pic, but pictures can be deceiving, especially when they’re not in leos.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Aly’s legs look bigger but Gabby looks like she has a stomach. That shirt doesn’t help. Its horrid.

      • gymbot Says:

        I think it’s the shirt, horizontal stripes leading the eye. I know she’s not well liked, but she might push Biles and Key

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        At her best she isn’t close to Biles

      • gymbot Says:

        Agreed, Biles most likely has the difficulty, execution and artistry to stay ahead of Douglas. Douglas could literally have nothing to show at this camp or she may already have an AA set pushing 59 – either way I wouldn’t be surprised, but I think she has been training. Looking forward, Biles and Key only have a Ross in rebuilding, Dennis, and now maybe Douglas and Raisman to push them domestically.

    • biyatch Says:

      Aly looks super fit. I wouldn’t really expect her to come back if she wasn’t ready to take her role as HBIC back, something she had to have learned from ASac. I wonder if its awkward for her, particularly at this camp where the worlds team isn’t around, that she’s sooooo much older than everyone. At 20 I wouldn’t have been able to handle being surrounded by 12-17 year olds nonstop even for 5 days.
