Did you know????

Did you know?????

Julianne Mcnamara’s daughter plays 15 year old Kate on This is us? I didn’t even realize they had a teenage Kate ( I was bored and disengaged))

Simone has a boyfriend? ( well she’s dating) Glad to see she is living life and don’t ask me why this showed up on my yahoo feed.

Aly is joining the Navy? She’s not really ( as far as I know) but her outfit says she could be:) By the way if you watch could Gabby look any more awkward in this video? First I must say I actually love her dress. I think it’s the first thing I have ever seen on a gymnast I can say I would actually wear. Well know that isn’t true, Kyla’s dress from the ESPY’s in 2012 was cute too. Gabby just looks like she doesn’t want to be there. She looked the same at the ESPY’s, miserable. ( I also liked that dress)

Simone and her ESPY’s and is this show not a complete joke? Aaron Rodgers for best NFL player and best play over the Superbowl saving catch by Amendola?

” But, if it’s not broken, then you don’t need to fix it. I think Brett McClure is still smoking the weed he and Jaycie Phelps were on during their entire relationship. If he thinks there is nothing wrong with the men’s team in the US he is a complete fucking idiot that should be fired already.

F*** NBC. 1 year ago today

The 2016 Olympic Trials were one year ago today. We can’t get video because everything good won’t let you embed on youtube because NBC FUCKING SUCKS. That is all:)

So I stole a picture from their website and of course it had to be Simone.

I remember this like it was yesterday. Maggie refusing to go to camp. Mykayla and Ashton retweeting or liking all the tweets that they were robbed. Gabby crying like she deserved her spot and hearing her mother knew ahead of time she was on the team regardless of how she did that day which is why she acted like she did. Simone kicking ass and taking names. Laurie being over scored. Kyla not being there. Me thinking of Rebecca Bross not making the team in 2012 ( I know I was shocked too) Aly being Aly and hitting when she had too. Brenna and company being ignored by NBC altogether. Nastia being a two faced phony fucktard. Tim and Nastia insisting Gabby should still be on the team even though she was the only one not to hit even tho you know Tim really felt that spot should have been Mykayla’s ( he practically said it when he mentioned how he felt bad for her). Me rooting for Madison Kocian to hit. Gabby crying after falling off beam and me feeling sorry for her for about half a second. Steve Penney running into the “decision” room to make sure Marta did her job and added Gabby even though she didn’t deserve it. Ashton falling off beam and her dad saying, it’s over. Ragan Smith nailing beam day 2 after sucking big time day 1. Hundley going 8 for 8 and never being shown and lastly but not leastly (its late) Kocian making this team for bars over Ashton even though she only beat her once the entire year, day 2 at trials.

So what do you remember?????

Gym stuff

Danell-Leyvas wants to be an actor and is “retiring” from gymnastics. This is AKA I might come back if this acting thing doesn’t work out.

I have never been a big Lleva fan per say but the guy not being named to the Olympic team last year before Bozo’s injury was ridiculous. Just for the record, I called this BS decision way before anyone else. 🙂

Komova’s coach thinks all gymnasts should be AA ers. I can’t seem to find the article.

When most people have a baby they automatically take pictures and put on social media. Not Aliya Mustafina though. She puts up a selfie of herself.lol Next to Nastia I have never seen a gymnast so into herself but at least Aliya doesn’t hire hair and makeup to do 90% of her social media pictures.lol

This is old by Kohei won his 9th National title after falling 3 times in prelims. He also won his 40th straight AA title at the NHK

Some of you are being put in the moderation forum here at wordpress because you are using different IP addresses then your normal ones. This is wordpress NOT me. That being said until you confirm under your real IP address that this is you I won’t be approving them. A few weeks ago someone tried to post under someone elses name and a different IP address and it wasn’t the right person so I am doing what I have to to keep the blog safe.

The Making of Ashley Wagner’s LP (I hated this movie)

Briley Casanova’s blog

06/07/2017

Pretty much my only memory of Briley Cassanova’s gymnastics career is hearing her name and thinking, best last name ever.

I don’t remember her as a junior or a senior Elite. Her entire career at Michigan is a blur and I probably couldn’t pick her out of a line up of gymnasts if she was standing right in front of me screaming, “Pick me. Pick me I’m Briley” but I recently discovered her blog and find it a very interesting read.

The blog itself has a lot of interesting tidbits about her life as an Elite gymnast. The pressure she was under to maintain her weight and how it felt like to deal with people constantly thinking they have the right to give you their opinion on it (who doesn’t deal with that even if not a gymnast)


A Letter to my 12 year old self
is definitely something I can relate too only it would be the age of 15 and it would start with, Jenn when you meet the cute boy with the piercing green eyes on the motorcycle, run.

She seems very satisfied with her time as a gymnast. Making the National team was enough for her. She stills seems to love the time she put in to the sport and even admits to eating too much candy (good thing she isn’t training anymore.lol) So if you want to see what it takes to train as an elite athlete and deal with everything that comes with the expectations check her blog out. The link is above.

Of all the routines I watched of Briley the most potential she had as a gymnast IMO was on bars. Forget her floor.( you know how I feel about gymnasts who start their floor routines with double backs in any decade that doesn’t have an 80 in it) She also had potential on beam.

Maybe I was “bigger” than most other gymnasts in the community, but I feel like I put in my very best effort until the end and was a overall wonderful performer in my time. Beyond that, I feel like I was a great leader, teammate, and supporter of my fellow gymnasts, which I’m more proud of anyway.

Komova’s AA Comeback

05/31/2017

Thank you Rocio who has been made vice President since he is the only one of you that posts anymore:)

There are subtitles but I’ll be damned if I can find them.

It should also be noted that a few people have now being told they need their comment approved and frankly I am sick of re-explaining this to everyone because people are getting offended, thinking I am doing this to them so…. WORDPRESS is sending comments to moderation NOT ME. NO ONE, Has been banned or blocked or set to purgatory. If you use a phone and a computer and or a tablet and you switch between them, wordpress might send you to moderation waiting for approval AKA purgatory. I like everyone that posts here and have no no reason to ban or temporary block anyone so if you are going to purgatory or told you are banned or blocked, its NOT ME. Send me an e-mail. I’ll check. FOR THE 500TH TIME, I don’t also check spam or purgatory. So if you use wifi at work or starbucks this might happen to you

Here is what Rocio must have been talking about. It’s a recap of what was said. So basically her coach whines she was robbed , twice. The coach, really thinks she was robbed by Jordyn and she somewhat implies she deserved the Olympics over whats her name. “The vault gave the judges a reason to take it away was pretty much the opinion. Second thought with all this whining maybe I should have picked something else to blog about lol

Mai Murakami won NHK and Sae Miyakawa on Floor

Mai Murakami

Old news but I am short on time to actually think of a blog

And I finally sat through Angelina Melnikova ‘s floor win at Europeans. Not bad. Maybe this will be a turning point for her.

Dub Nation. Wooooo. Well not really lol but I like Durant (used to love him) and want him to win a title. Plus Steph is a Red Sox fan so. Just as long as the CAVS WAKE UP AND BEAT THE DAMN CELTICS.

Watch, Michelle Kwan get a honorary Doctor of Humane Letters at Smith college. 50 minutes in.

101 reasons I consider College Gymnastics a joke

05/12/2017

Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 5.57.20 PM

First year coach, Courtney Kupets will be paid 160 thousand smackaroo’s to run Georgia’s gymnastics program. Yep for the whopping 4 months of work she will make more money then most people make in 5 plus years (I am being generous here I wish.lol)

I wonder how much Suzanne is getting paid.lol

The other 100 reason’s have to do with scoring:)

Here is what Greg Marsden thinks.

Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 6.06.25 PM

( Don’t whine Greg if I could make a forth of my company’s budget I would be rich:)

Suzanne replied to someone on the College board about what her part in this will be..

Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 6.09.35 PM

Last but certainly not least here are what the triple twist twins think about the whole thing. If you want to hear what Kupets had to say in her press conference you can find it here. This link comes from the blog above.

IMO, This is crazy. Giving her the job based on her amazing, albeit overscored gymnastics career in College is ridiculous. Especially with such a well known and successful University. Paying her this much puts her under scrutiny from the start. She will be under pressure from day 1 to win with a group of girls that really don’t have the talent to compete with Oklahoma or LSU or even UCLA.

The thing she has going for her is her name could land some recruits.

I love Suzanne Yoculan. I always have. I never hated Georgia the gymnastics program all through I always dislike the lack of common sense Kupets showed over the years (She did Elite gymnastics and didn’t know what the American cup was.lol) but while I think her pay is bat shit crazy I guess we will have to wait and see if Little Miss Muppet can pull it off. As much as she has always annoyed me, if she has half the success she had as a College and elite gymnast she will be just fine.

I kind of like Zsofia Kovacs. Compared to the monstrosity  that are the Downie sisters gymnastics I feel like Zsofia was lowballed. Her floor has a double layout and a full in and she still only managed a 4.9 start value. Oh this code sucks.

Prelims Results

Thanks to Rocio you can watch it live, tomorrow.
