Maybe I will go. I already know what I will pack. My Boston Bruins back pack. My Boston Bruins Tim Thomas Shirt. My Boston Bruins flip flops. I’ll have to check but I know I have more Boston Bruins stuff and for the occasion I will have to buy a Milan Lucic shirt:)
because when he was a HAB the coach left him in and let the other team score a whole bunch of points… his last game in a HABS uniform…. then he and borque both won with Colorado!!! I think I will wear a Roy jersey one night and a borque jersey another night
She’s so young, maybe she just really missed being away from her family. Maybe Marta made suggestions to get out. Pretty interesting news though, she’d overtaken Lexie and Amelia as the next big CGA girl.
courtney mccool stopped coaching at cga. after she had been a gage gymnast. what does that say?MLT needs to look at Meals and how she trains her gymnasts, and talk to jetter, and all the rest that havent made an olympic team since oh…2000 and yes I think her exclusion is because Morgan White didnt compete hurt
I swear my entire dashboard was covered in those types of posts for a couple days straight. I mean, I could understand why those who are big fans of hers were excited but it got a little annoying after a while.
I don’t blame you for not having a Tumblr anymore. There are many days when I’m left shaking my head after reading through some of the posts and tags. It’s a good source of entertainment though, and there are some very knowledgeable and rational people on there.
TCG is reporting that Ponor and Izbasa are rumored to be coming out of retirement. What??!!?? I guess if they want to come back, that’s fantastic, but it seems like Romania is begging them to come back to rescue their program. Similar to Nabs in Russia…
I am so over them coming out for the Olympics and screwing some little kid out of their dream. Doing the math Larisa, Ponor and Izbasa doesn’t make much sense unless some uneven bar specialists are going to super grow out of some magic seed. Neither will do bars
Didn’t Isbaza do bars? I agree with GTT to an extent – but I have to say, if Ponor and Isbaza are the best Romania has to offer (after a third comeback or whatever), then I guess I can’t disagree with sending them. It’d be one thing if it were all politics but if Romania is that short of good gymnasts I guess I can see why they’d be having them come back.
However, that’s only going to last for so long. They aren’t spring chickens and Romania needs to get their crap together if they want to keep up their legacy (which has already been eeking way in the past few years as we all know). They need to start developing new people and stop chasing all of their talent away (still angry about Ana Porgras)…
I get the ‘glory hog’ point, seems a little extreme to bring them out of retirement when they could focus on improving the younger girls that they already have…but Ponor is my ultimate girl crush so I selfishly hope that this is true…
It might be too late for them to come back at this point…especially if they get injured (which is more likely as they age). Also, they probably can’t practice as many hours I’m guessing.
I’m still dubious about this Gabby comeback. Any word from camp as to how she did?
Interesting. In this article, Shawn Johnson mentions launching her own series of gymnastics competitions. I’m assuming it will be similar to Nastia’s JO competitions? I wish I could see Nastia’s face as she reads about this.
theres spoilers out on celebrity apprentice. shawn is just talking out of her ass. USAG will never sponsor a shawn johnson cup. I wonder if there would be extra points for saying bittersweet and looking constantly like youve had a lobotomy. shes just waiting until her boyfriend marries her. Rumor has it her back injury is so intense and got worse on DWTS
hmmm…interesting article, glad she is keeping busy.
The last part interested me the most, where she says gymnastics meets are stale and boring for the younger girls. That personally was my favorite part of being a gymnast, how regimented and serious the environment was. Maybe it sounds weird, but I liked that. I guess I was surprised at her answer to that question! I wonder if her ‘series of meets’ won’t be more laid back or something.
My guess would be many little girls competing gymnastics JO comps etc would enjoy competing in a serious environment. While innovation and creativity is fine, at that age basics and the safety of the younger ones, should be paramount. I don’t think parents would be supportive of it either, seems a lot of parents worry about the safety of their children gymnasts as it is!
