Write, delete, re-write, delete, repeat. Write, delete, re-write, delete, repeat. Over and over again like a broken record ( type writer??) I type and delete and try to decide if this blog is even worth writing. It probably isn’t but in 3 years when this subject comes up again and I need to remember if this actually happened we will have actual proof it did ( Unlike what Jeter did to A-Roid when he got to NY in 2004 that doesn’t show up on any search engine anymore. (COME BACK SARAH)

Here’s what happened….

Grace Mccallum allegedly won the AA at the last National team training camp. 2 days later, Simone Biles felt to the need to reply to some random guys tweet with an excuse (explanation) on why she didn’t win camp. Was she searching Grace’s name to see if the info had leaked out ? because I can’t for the life of me figure out why she felt the need to actually reply to a tweet that literally didn’t mention her name. I know, that is what twitter is but this is different and you know it.

I’m starting to see why some of the National team’s gymnasts are having an issue with Simone.

A win is a win, Simone. Dismount or no dismount, Grace won the National team training camp AA and in this scenario it probably would have been wise of you to just let the child have her moment in time. IMO . You however can do as you see fit and I will do the same.

P.S.- Lilly Lippeatt and Ragan Smith tied for 1st Place on physical abilities at the last camp if anyone is interested. Hopefully that means Ragan is getting her strength back)

In other news….

Ruggeri joins USA Gymnastics Board of Directors as men’s athlete representative Better late then never, USAG….

If I was Sarah Finnegan I would hire a lawyer and find the judge that gave me a 9.9 for this routine.

Let me help you out here Sarah. The floor judges were Chris McIntosh and Crystal Davis. Not sure which one only gave you a 9.9 but I’ll see what I can find out.

Rip her to shreds, bullies of the ‘Gymternet” New head of USAG

February 19, 2019


Of course I’m just kidding about “ripping her to shreds” but I am waiting for the fall out. The inmates, CLEARLY, running the asylum will eventually find fault with this because isn’t that what they do?

Bring it on…….

(Thank you Mary)

The whining begins….

” they didn’t listen to us”

Gonna need better complaint then, I didn’t get who I wanted to be in charge so I’m gonna complain..

I remember a few months ago when the “Gymternet” was up in arms because USAG had the AUDACITY to send out a survey asking gymnasts to tell them what they wanted in a HBIC and a certain gymnast flipped her lid because USAG didn’t know what they wanted and thought the survey was a waste of time.

HONESTLY THIS IS JUST GETTING OLD. Either decertify USAG or give this woman a chance.

2019 World Cup qualifying

Figured I would add this here for those keeping track. I think the BB situation plans on adding the results as they happen.

Svetlana Boginskaya is at some kind of gymnastics meet at Tropicana You have to be a fan of the AL east to know why that place holding anything especially baseball would be funny.

Comebacks, Back to level 10’s and don’t you dare Gabby Douglas. … Updated

February 6, 2019

Perhaps the best news of all is Mykayla Skinner says she’s 70/80 % in on a comeback for the 2020 Olympics. (Yay, Yea, YAY)

Maile O’Keefe has dropped back to level 10 which means she is preparing for College ( Boo) (Gymcastic)

and because my life never seems to be 100% positive…..

Gabby Douglas is making comments like this and scaring us all 🙂 I love you again Simone Biles

We have discussed this in other blogs but I thought I should add it in here. Larisa Iordache is back to training and will be coached by Belu and Bitang.

World Cup assignments are out for US gymnasts. Nice to see everyone competing outside the US.
