Tokyo Cup Results

Trinity Thomas who IMO is one of the cleaner gymnasts we have was murdered by the judges at the Tokyo Cup ( Chellse Memmel was a judge) but she’s still better than all of us combined:) Video one, Video two….

Trinity Thomas on Floor If you look to the right there are more videos…

Trinity Thomas’s Routines

(Vault) (Bars) (Beam) (Floor)

Russia won the team event at Jesolo with Brazil second and Italy third followed by China and Romania. NaziFloGym owns rights so don’t expect videos to stay up if you find them.

( Jade Barbosa on vault)

The AA was won by Emma Malabuyo followed by Ragan Smith ( with only an FTY) and the two Russians. ( Will get results if I find them later) full

We are now a Larry Nassar free zone

March 31, 2018

I have been attempting to write this blog for days. It’s not possible to write it without offending someone because chances are my opinion will always be the one opinion someone will take offense with and frankly I’m sick of writing on egg shells so here it goes.

I’m sorry these girls were abused. I’m sorry this all happened. I’m extremely sorry so many parents couldn’t see the warning signs that their kids were being abused to the point they were throwing their heads against bathtub’s just to avoid going to camps. I’m sorry so many adults saw the warning signs and either didn’t care enough to notice or they chose to ignore it because they cared more about their children or gymnast becoming famous then their well being. I’m sorry it all happened but you know what my sorry doesn’t mean jack shit because it happened and no one can change what these girls went through. It will never be over because the lasting effects of abuse stay with you, forever. The best you can hope for is to be able to live with what happened to you and survive it.

That being said there are plenty of places to discuss the subject but the witch hunt will not continue at this blog. If you want to blame Nastia for defending her father take it to the former gossip capital of the world. Their hypocrisy is well known if you do a little digging… If you want to harass Terin Humphrey for using her brain and not discussing the case she might have to testify about in a court of law, try one of the gymnastics Magazine’s message boards where the woman in charge of the board is friendly with those same hypocrites. This place is done with the subject.

This blog will be staying up for a few days so if your have any thoughts on the subject get it out of your system now. This will be the last blog where the subject can be discussed. I’m sure many of you have issues with this and as usual feel free to be honest about it. For me personally I want this blog to go back to the subject of gymnastics.

Wakaba Higuchi was robbed

March 23, 2018

Results

My only coverage of Worlds or Olympics in the year 2018 is going to consist of this blog titled, Wakaba Higuchi was robbed. I much prefer this Skate to the winner but per usual no one will say a word because North America sticks together. I know she fell in the SP but she still should have won the LP and since she didn’t I am calling the fix is in.

The US lost their 3rd spot thanks to Mirai Nagasu and Mariah Bell even though neither was particularly hideous they were just out skated. No triple Axel by Mirai. I will never understand how judges can give negative GOE and positive on the same jump. How does one judge see it as good and the rest see it as bad? Mirai’s triple flip, triple toe was under- rotated on the toe yet judge 6 gave her a plus 1. Whatever judges.

Alina Zagitova showed up to Worlds after winning the Olympics which is more than any other Gold medalist has done in the last 10 Olympics that I can remember (ladies wise) but what a disaster for her. I still say Medvedeva should have won the Olympics but as far as Gold medalists go, Zag is at least watchable.

I thought Satoko Miyahara should have won bronze at the Olympics so I am glad she placed third here. It’s nice seeing two Japanese girls on the podium for once because they usually get screwed.

Bradie stood up her LP. Props to her and I did laugh at her getting better PCS then Mirai after all those whiner Nagasu fans insisted the Olympic and World judges would show her when it mattered. Yep. Didn’t happen that way.

And I still don’t think Carolina Kostner is any where as great as the world claims she is so I am always fine with her choking:)

I’m glad the Shib Sibs stayed home because I literally have no interest in Dance at all and I will NEVER understand what the hell it is is so great about Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue who I find slow and boring.

As for the men if they want to turn this sport into a jumping showcase they can keep it. PLEASE Shoma Ono. Show up tomorrow and show the ISU what real skating should be.

Komova comeback number 307

March 16, 2018

Beam

It’s a start.

Bars looked beautiful. Killer handstands, beautiful lines. Great form. 5.3 + 8.35 = 13.65 score. Her beam was in the 11’s but even with the usual strict judging so far I thought this was semi low. If she had hit the dismount most it would have been was low to middle 12.

DTBPokel Results

Jordan Chiles

(Vault) (Bars) (Beam) (Floor)

I was ready to call her out on another performance she didn’t do her job (which she technically didn’t) but besides the falls I thought she looked good. That was the best beam routine we have seen from her in forever and her bars looked great til she fell. With the exception of her first handstand she was hitting them all. Maybe someday she will become consistent though at this point I doubt it. I wonder why she didn’t do the Amanar.

Who can explain to me Melinikova even getting close to the same execution score Chiles received on Vault? Someone tell Seitz that in 2018 there is no excuse for doing a Yurchenko full. Watching Voss and seeing her scores reminded me of the US and the Scam Cup. Hey we almost made it through an entire competition with out a wolf spin on beam ( damn you Melnikova) She had such a good routine going til the fall then she fell apart. I fell asleep during this Beampocalypse I had to go back and watch again. I love we are getting real beam mounts. Yep time for a scam cup score for Seitz on beam. Chellsie Memmel moved to the Netherlands and changed her name to Tisha. Melnikova getting a 13 with that floor was interesting. If she had not tumbled forward 6 times that might have been in the 14’s. Voss would have won if she didn’t fall on floor.lol Yeah, okay. I can’t believe I sat through this whole thing. Someone tell the boy sitting next to Elisabeth’s mom he’s a rude SOB sitting on the top of that chair. The lady behind can’t see.

Oklahoma vs Alabama

I am not usually an Alabama hater but some of their Floor scores rival the overscoring Florida gets every meet. Kiana got her College retiring gift early.

2018 American cup

March 2, 2018

Sorry for the delay in blogging but a little over a month ago I decided to take a month long sabbatical from using the internet and haven’t been online since January. My internet black out was more a personal thing but also somewhat related on a much smaller scale to this blog which honestly has become quite a chore as of late. I guess I just needed a break, from the internet life.

Thanks to Meredith, Michelle, Jas, Danielle and Isabella for the e-mails and your concern for my welfare. I really do appreciate that you took the time to not only find my e-mail but send me a message.

I am making a guess this year at the winners. I predict Mai Murakami will get screwed which will bring the Scam cup moniker back to life 🙂 Why can’t we get the likes of Kenzo, Mai and any gymnast from China at gymnastics meets I get to attend?

2018 Nationals

January 10, 2018

It’s the worst year possible to have a Nationals so of course it comes to the Fleetcenter, AKA, BOSTON:)(It’s not the Garden and will never be called the Garden by me)

It’s a good thing they announced this because Sox tickets went on sale.

I HATE THE QUAD

January 6, 2018

Screen Shot 2018-01-06 at 11.08.09 PM

I can’t stand Adam Rippon. He’s a conceited douche bag and nothing makes me happier then seeing spoiled , cocky brats, fall on their ass and be brought down to earth but tonight, there was NO REASON he should have been trying a quad. It wasn’t necessary and the same with Jason Brown but because of the judging system allowing cheated quads to get just as much credit as clean triples everyone feels the need to throw one or 2 in that they can’t hit. IT’S RUINING THE SPORT.

Who wants to watch skaters throw and fall or mess up a quad with shitty skating skills and next to no transitions yet these same skaters still win the PCS mark. It’s just wrong.

The Olympic team…

Nathan, Jason and Adam made the GPF which means they won multiple medals during the skating season. Think about that for a second. They have already had to peak 3 more times then anyone else at these “Nationals AKA As Olympic trials” How is that fair? You make the system decide the Olympic team so while they are working their butts off to peak multiple times the Zhao’s of the world are home resting or choking away their PGF events.There is something wrong with that.

Listening to Tara and Johnny all night makes me want to slit someones throat. They are completely biased in favor of Nathan Chen, calling him an “artist on the ice” ARE YOU KIDDING ME? and Adam and 100% discounting Jason Brown it reminds me of listening them discount Ashley the last 3 days.

Are they being told ahead of time who will make the team and being told to discount the skaters, USFSA is clearly over?

I was talking with some internet peeps over e-mail during these last few days and we have all come to the conclusion that this is just like Nastia and Tim calling Gabby a member of the 2016 Olympic team BEFORE it happened.

Yes, Jason finished 6th here but Tara and Johnny didn’t even mention he has a chance to go to the Olympics as they were making excuses for why Adam should have made the team over Zhao. Well no offense to Miner and Zhao but the Olympic team should be the 3 guys that did all the leg work the last 4 months the GPF has been going on. Either that, or take the top 3 at Nationals because Jason AND Adam should be a matching set on this Olympic team. They have similar results and if one goes the other should go.

If the Olympic team ends up being, Chen, Zhao and Rippon you have your proof.

I really don’t know why I watch these sports anymore.

Happy New Year. Bring on 2018

Here is to everyone having a Happy and healthy New Year. Anyone have any New Year Resolutions?

I want some happy TV endings that have no chance of happening. A Red Sox World series win (in 4 short games AKA as a sweep) and a Superbowl for the Patriots, the destruction of the Boston Celtics and a lottery win of over 200 million after taxes for myself ( I ask for these same things every year tho:)

Yang Yilin is visiting Chows gymnastics and this picture showed up in my e-mail from someone who thought I might like to see it. Seems like my ranting about the 2008 Olympics especially that bar final is well known (Who would ahve thunk it:)

One of those girls is Norah Flatley. I forget who the other is.

Am I the only one that feels there is something off with this father? The little girl is adorable and she seems like this is her dream (by the short video) but I don’t know. Daddy seems a bit of a stage dad.

She competes Sunday.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

December 24, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 5.57.50 PM

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas. Hanukkah is over but for those that celebrate it I hope you had a great Holiday too. Just a reminder Christmas is a religious holiday so if you have a Christmas tree and bash religion or those that follow it you are a hypocrite.

“I would rather live my life as if there is a god and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is.”

― Albert Camus

Sorry to bring Religion into this blog. I am not a religious person but it’s been a little over a year since my operation and I guess I am just reflecting on a lot of things. My life changed drastically over the last year. I think I took a lot of things for granted that I now realize I shouldn’t have and lets just say, sometimes, the consequences of your actions can sometimes take a toll on your mental well being. SO… I hope everyone has a great year and I will now stop babbling 🙂

In other news!!!!

Ashton Kutcher has decided she wants to be the next Shawn Johnson…

Whatever you do Ashton, Don’t give hair advice. (Roots girl. Your roots)

Oh and remember a few years ago when I was like annoyed, Nastia got engaged to a Boston guy? well reasons like this are why. I was minding my own business, walking down the street and I noticed the new Improper Bostonian was out and lets just say, someone has invaded my space It’s the first time EVER I have walked by the magazine and not taken one. #WhyBostonNastiaWHY

Aly and Alicia have both appeared on this magazine but they are from here. All the bitchy one has done is get permanently engaged to some guy I have never heard of.

Someone sent me an e-mail telling me Bridget Sloan has been liking Nastia’s posts on instagram again. Guess their feud is over too.

That same person also told me Katelyn Ohashi is having a bit of whiplash in the twitter hypocrisy department tweeting nasty comments calling out the people calling out Lizzy Leduc for getting kicked off the Illinois gymnastics team but then tweeting that everyone should be nicer to each other online.

She made that team” well that was rude, Katelyn.

Hopefully The Happy New year post will be full of less teenage drama….. 🙂
