All About Me

Red Sox. Gymnastics. Figure Skating. Joe Kelly being traded. (UPDATED: Joe can now stay:) Carson Smith going with him.( Carson still needs to go) UPDATED, July 6th? Joe needs to go again and take David Price with him. August 11th, Heath Hembree, YOU’RE OUT OF HERE… great, Joe Kelly. More fun. What do you mean we can’t win every game???? (Updated way too late , November 12th 2018, Joe Kelly can stay:) September of 2019. Everyone must leave ( Red Sox)

People seem to visit this page daily and I don’t know why.

Random thoughts….

This blog is 99.999999 % free speech on every subject but Boston sports……

My mood depends on the ending of the latest Red Sox score. Remember that when posting here …. 🙂

It’s not personal when your opinion ends up in spam. It’s wordpress…

If you read this and want to post, send me an e-mail. Wait til the Red Sox win and you’ll have a better chance of being approved.

Most people don’t like my opinion because I don’t follow the narrative. I won’t apologize for that.

I feel like this blog should get more random e-mails then I do so drop me a line the

-July 6th

I have approved very few new people over the last few years ( maybe 5 if even that many) and I noticed recently some of the staples have flown the coop. It is what it is. If you’re easily offended ( by anything) this isn’t the place to be….

I am not going to lie to you I have some personal favorite people that post here. Jas is one of them. She’s been here a long time and I don’t think she’s ever said a mean word to a single other person that posts here. I bet she’s liked by everyone in real life. Gymnerd is another one. We don’t always agree but she never takes what I say as a personal insult against her.

There are people that post here that I appreciate more than some, like Rocio. Lets be real, this blog would have probably died years ago if he didn’t come here and update us on the happenings around the gym world…

I’ve had favorites in the past that were a lot of fun ( though I don’t remember your posting names. Hashtag #sorry) but like I said earlier, eventually something I say will offend you and this happened with one of them. Apparently it was okay to say what she wanted about Nastia but the second it became about a favorite of hers she didn’t like it very much. I’ll be damned if I can remember the name she used.

So basically the gist of this post is this. I’m not going to change. If you are taking something I say personally that’s on you. The funny thing is I have tried to write this blog, 100 times and it always ended up as an apology of sorts but I’ve finally realized you know what you get when you come here. I’m passionate. I’m opinionated. I don’t have a problem debating things or going back and forth and I don’t hold grudges so don’t take anything I say as a personal slight.

    […] – The title of the blog describes exactly the bloggers way of writing about gymnastics: “I have an opinion and I am not afraid to use it. If you don’t like that don’t read my blo… or “…if you want 100% honesty and no bias then stop here at my blog. I will hold NO […]

    I put a link/description to your site on my Links/Profiles page.

    (It’s at the bottom of the links section, just before the profiles start.)

    After reading your piece on Simona I just wanted to put a link to something I wrote about her, but I didn’t want to do it on the comments about that piece because I mainly just care if you see it. i.e., I’m not trying to promote my site here, so I’m putting it here. You might get a kick out of it, since you’re a Simona fan.


  4. gymtruthteller Says:

    Sarah I could care less if you use this blog to promote your site. Feel free to post what you like.

    Here were my two favorite parts
    Okay, close enough. Is not like you’re Boginskaya, so nobody gonna pay attention that much anyway,even if you take off clothes and run around arena selling peanuts. Well, they probably pay attention then and say, “Why does gymnast Belu trained sell peanuts?”


    oh shoot there is another part and now I can’t find it.

    • Sarah! Says:

      Yeah, those damn Romanians. But I have a question that’s off topic: I know you know a lot about various gymnastics things and gymnasts – do you know if Yang Yilin is going to be competing in London? I have a friend who is dying to find out, and I have no idea. She wants to fly out there and go to the Games, but only if Yang is competing. Have you heard anything?

    GTT: I was wondering if there is anyway to make a suggestion to you about a post topic? Anyway I would love to ask why everyone is a fan of elite gymnastics. I know it is a general question unrelated to anything specific in the news lately but it would be fun to see what everybody thinks, especially you and all the regulars who provide comments. I have a few thoughts myself.

    I guess I could just toss the question out in a comment to one of your posts but I didn’t want to hijack the post with a question unrelated to the topic of the posts.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      You feel free to hijack any thread you like. I will pose the question for you in a few hours.

      • terrigymfan Says:

        GTT, another quick question for use of an “admin” nature. I don’t suppose there is anyway to send a private message to either you or another commentator on this blog without revealing email addresses, is there? I (and I suppose most of us) have a private e-mail address where we can correspond privately with someone else without revealing personal information that would allow us to be identified (the same policy all of us should follow I think). I hate stating even my “private” email address openly in one of my comments though.

        I am only interested because it would be fun to talk about gymnastics a little with one-on-one with some folks without clogging up the blog.

        Create a yahoo account and use that.

      • terrigymfan Says:

        GTT: Did anybody respond to your suggestion regarding tickets to the Kellogg Tour? I talked to my husband and we might could get you some. Send me an email at if you would like to discuss.

      • terrigymfan Says:

        Actually it is Offer still stands.

    Hello there!

    I will be hosting a discussion about the Olympics very soon. If anybody is interested, please contact me at

    GTT, I would also like to contact you privately. Please email me at the email given above.

    Hello there,

    was wondering why my comments on the gaby douglas post didnt get published while others after mine did? my comments were not offensive., sorry i dont know how else to contact you GTT

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Katherine dear I have a career where I don’t get to play on the internet all day so sometimes it takes days to approve comments and lately I have not been approving any comments.

      To be honest I like the nice mix of people currently posting here. We don’t always agree but we are all very respectful of each others opinion s and even when I get annoyed (everyone else is perfect I however am learning to let others have their opinion) and sound off everyone knows not to take it personally.

  8. Gymnerd Says:

    GTT, have you seen this?

    This just gets better and better!!! Hope you check this page and that you put this on a blog.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I think I posted it in the old blog. I am not in the mood to talk about this little spoiled brat and her fat mother anymore.

      This kid really is an idiot. Who says this??

      “I love all the attention, people noticing me. ‘There’s the gymnast. There she is!’ ”

      I stopped reading after that comment. Please don’t make me read

      Paraphrase for me please?

    Hey, there –

    I’m writing here because it’s the least likely place people will see it. Late last night, one of my readers, liketearsinrain, responded to a request I put out to make a video about Milo, Gina and Simona with the background music the theme from “Laverne & Shirley.” He put together a quick video, and even though the picture quality isn’t superb, the video is so much fun!

    I’m linking the youtube version here in case you want to share it with your readers. You dojn’t have to mention me or anything, I just think it’s something gym fans would enjoy.

    No one ever did anything like this for me before, and it was really touching.

    Thanks for being a friend, even though I’m from Malibu and you’re from Mass. (Sounds like I country song: “I’m from Malibu, she’s from Mass.”)

    I just want to take a moment to write that you crack me up!! ;). As a former figure skater waaaayyyyy back in the day for 10 years (I’m 45 now!) based out of NY, I know there are lots of politics in the sport, but politics are EVERYwhere and you basically have to play the game to be successful. I remember as a 12 year old, a certain pbotographer creeped me out, but my coaches told me to shake it off because the judges don’t like drama queens or a snob….my point is that Ashley Wagner although I applaud her for her courage regarding the Russian policy against gays, she does NOT know how to work the system and politely deal with the politics. The Ms. Kim is not making a face or bashing the venue for her siler medal behind the Russian who had higher technical marks in the free program where you can jam pack on the points whereas you cannot do so much in short.

    Anyway, you crack me up and I was giggling reading some posts on other drama queens who felt entitled because they were dramatic and had a few good spins while highly inconsistent-bad parenting often creates spoiled brats-You know who they are…lol 😉

    I don’t know where else to post this so I’m just going to leave it here since you’ll probably be the only one to read it! I’ve just been following your blog in the last couple of months and I’m pretty unbiased when it comes to gymnastics. I really just like to watch, I don’t really pay much attention to what goes on behind the scenes–or I didn’t until recently when I found your blog. I’d really like to be able to participate in some of the discussions. My opinion probably doesn’t hold much merit since I’ve been out of the gym for 9 years and follow mostly college gymnastics but it would be fun to be able to comment on things and join in discussion. I’m not very tech savvy (though I should be since the rest of my generation seems pretty good at it…) so I didn’t know how to send you a direct message. Sorry if this isn’t where it’s supposed to go.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I am in a good mood so feel free to post. Like I have said A MILLION TIMES I am not trying to be a bitch by not letting people post I am just trying to keep the peace we have as a blog.

      You’re just lucky I like cupcakes:)
