Camp team named

August 25, 2010

6 of these gymnasts below will be on your world team. I am really glad Amanda Jetter was named. Her double front is the cleanest I have seen in a long time. I would love to see what the world judges did with her.

Classic Opinion

July 26, 2010

“Classic” is debatable it was more a survivor of the staying on. Mattie Larson won but she sord of fell into the win more then winning it. Literally everyone ahead of her fell and Mattie came up on top. So the game goes.

Here we go….

There were some highlights in this meet like Alicia’s rudi. Sam Shapiro’s form on floor and well that is it off the top of my head. I will say this if Jetter ever fixes her leaps issues on beam she has an amazing set.

Cassie Whitcomb is the queen of being screwed out of world teams but for the first time in awhile I wasn’t impressed with her. Her bars were messy and labored. Her beam was coming along quite nicely til she fell. Her floor I liked the dance but she crosses her legs on her twists a huge pet peeve of mine. I hope she improves at Nationals.

Aly Raisman had a bad meet. She fell on her Amanar, was bouncy on her floor and her beam was not as good as it has been in the past. This is “Classics” so I expect a better showing from her at Nationals.

Alicia Sacramone got the gift of the night on beam. She was a hot mess maybe letting the nerves get to her. Her rudi was as usual great though again she did not stick the landing. She does win the ugliest leo award. I find her a bit phony myself, Too involved in front of the camera but I like how she said HOPEFULLY the world team. She isn’t already putting herself on it like certain other people did last year.

Vanessa Zamarippa deserves all the credit in the world for trying elite but she was painful to watch last night. Her vault has potential but her beam and especially her floor were just not up to par. I usually like Vanessa on floor but her routine last night she walked through. It was horrible. She also needs more difficulty to compete for an Olympic team. She has two years so we will see.

Kytra Hunter was her usual self meaning blah. She can tumble but she can’t dance.

Mackenize Caguatto had a nice bar set. The angle they had for a camera hid most of her form issues though I did see a few leg separations.

I am not a big fan of the winner. Mattie is loved by so many including Tim “more annoying by the competition” Daggett but if Mattie makes the world team then the US is in serious trouble. Her floor is decent but nothing else about her impresses me at all. I can’t see her scoring well in a team final. Her beam is a bunch of jumps and a punch front, There is nothing in that routine that stands out.

Bridget Sloan and Rebecca Bross both did bars and beam. Bridget has a new set that she hit with a few mistakes and Rebecca won bars with the second most ridiculous score of the night a 15.4 something. Bross also fell on her beam dismount. Bridget had a few bobbles but much better then worlds last year. IMO Bridget should have won beam over Alicia.

Amanda Jetter had short leaps all through beam but she hit her two major skills and was one of the gymnasts so close to winning until the fall. Her vault was only shown once and had some sloppy form. I am off to find her floor because her practice routine had some nice tumbeling.

Now to the fun stuff………

NO Tasha Justice was not served giving the US the Olympic bronze medal from 2000. Remember Austrailia was only a few tenths from getting to the finals and now that the Chinese were proven underage the real injustice is for team Autrailia who didn’t get a chance to rebound like your team did.

and….. Tasha is a horrible commentator. She just babbles and makes little sense and this is coming from someone who actually likes Tasha well when she isn’t talking and talking and not saying a word..

and.. Mattie Larson has a pretty smile.

and….. Watch the award ceremonies on These girls are always telling each other on facebook how much they love each other and miss each other but watching them hug is funny. For girls who all love each other they certainly look akward trying to hug each

Bridget Sloan is a goof ball but she makes me laugh. Watch the ceremonies at gymnastike.

Nastia name dropping at 6…

Not showing the World champ on beam… BAD

The juniors also competed with Jordan Wieber winning. She was short on her Amanar but had an improved floor. I haven’t had time to watch all the junior routines but will at some point.

OMG its 1988. Double tucks

That is all for now. Excuse any spelling mistakes but its late and I am tired.

Ask me anything- Update

April 20, 2010

I spammed myself and the questions took an hour to be put up. I am still not getting any questions though my friend asked a few they just have not gone through. Looks like this is happening to everyone.

Keep trying maybe they will fix it. Thanks

Aunt Joyce made one of these and while I don’t have his following I thought I would create one of these and see what I get.

So ask away. I might not be online a lot the next 3 days so be patient if I don’t get back to you quickly.

Jesselo Italy team named

March 21, 2010

Ali Raisman
Amanda Jetter
Cassie Whitcomb
Mackenzie Caquatto
Kytra Hunter
Morgan Smith

Kyla Ross
Sabrina Vega

Rumor has Jordyn Wieber already named to the team. Okay rumor is a lie Jordyn has been going around telling everyone that after the camp she would be going to Italy for awhile now.

Well something is up because Jordyn is not listed even though like I said she has been telling the world she is going

Bekah throws a temper tantrum and the idiots follow along

December 27, 2009

This is exactly why I make fun of the IG forum and don’t post there.

Here is the gist. Bekah took it upon herself to harass and stalk gymnasts in the name of the IG Message board. Even creating a twitter account for the forum. Now she is complaining because a few people posted in a thread (almost all but one being very respectful) that the Questions she asks the gymnasts are some what stupid and childish (Oh I never said I was Okay they never used the words I just did but lets face it the questions are pretty easy and straight forward .

NO ONE said a thing about Bekah and nothing was directed at her but she made it all about her. The members vote on the top 5 questions so blaming Bekah for the stupidity of them when it is really a democratic process would be ridiculous. Yet somehow Bekah has made another thing all about her.

I have a friend who is friends with a lot of gymnasts on facebook and I can attest to Bekah and her ass kissing. Same with Martina the mod. They spend more time telling the gymnasts how wonderful they are then living in any reality world with real live people they might know.

At one point in a different thread Bekah talks about several gymnasts refusing to answer questions because they don’t want any negative answers and apparently Chellsie Memmel wasn’t to thrilled about a question about her eating habits (or lack there of. Chellsie made a comment on an HBO special about only eating chicken and fruit and one of the 5 q’s with her asked if that was true. )

The internet has gone insane. There are to many Bekah’s in the world that think because they are “friended” by a gymnast on facebook that they are real friends. This whole 5 Questions in the name of IG Magazine has gone to Bekah’s head where she now thinks she has the right to tell everyone what they can and cannot say or think and it is starting to piss off some of the senior members of the board. The girls and guy that think they run that board have been pretty quiet through this all which makes me wonder if they are just bidding their time til Bekah removes herself from the board because it is obvious that a lot of people can’t stand the girl. Bekah even accused one member of trying to steal her thunder because she interviewed a few gymnasts for her blog.

Kind of makes me laugh when Bekah claim’s she does these 5 questions for the members of the board because it is painfully obvious that Bekah is in this for Bekah.

I love the IG Message board. It really makes me laugh. Some of these people take themselves way to seriously. In order to be biased you have to have some kind of unhealthy attachment to a certain person or thing and how can anyone be attached to what this code has put out the last 3 or so years? The reason I love that board is because of people like Bekah. They make it amusing to read. Kind of like a Shawn fans vs the Nastia fanatic debates that have happened over the last year and a half.

14th International Tournament of Pas-de-Calais and Grand Prix Final

December 5, 2009

Event finals are over and thanks to the IG Magazine ass kissers of gymnasts facebooks we have the results for the US team. God forbid USA-gymnastics update us with

Amanda Jetter was 1st floor and 3rd bars and Cassie Whitcomb was 1st on bars, 2nd on beam and 2nd on floor .

I am again going to question the Logic of sending Cassie to this event with not a lot of competition instead of the Toyoto event that actually has some names. Is Marta scared Cassie might actually beat someone and force her to give Cassie the chance she has been earning all year? Cassie hit cold at camp and won floor but wasn’t even alternate for the World team. Just doesn’t seem fair but when has Marta been fair?

On to the Grand Prix final…..

Shen & Zhao won pairs.

The mens results are…
2 Nobunari ODA
3 Johnny WEIR
4 Jeremy ABBOTT
6 Tomas VERNER

The women’s resulkts are…

(Alena imploaded and others did not so she wasn’t upheld to a medal. GOOD)

1 Yu-Na KIM
2 Miki ANDO
3 Akiko SUZUKI
4 Ashley WAGNER
5 Joannie ROCHETTE (Pressure)

(Downgrades galore)

Watch out Skating. The ex Soviet republic’s think they have a chance at a medal

December 5, 2009

Grand Pre of Skating article

Link to results

Russia, Ukraine and the rest of the ex Soviet skating circle of disgusting cheating now has a new it girl. Who cares if Alena Leonova is a poor man’s Irina Slutskaya (if possible she has less presentation then the queen of over score Irina her self) if Russia thinks they have a shot at a medal they will do everything they can to make sure it happens.

Remember in 02 when the Ukraine judge who luckily was the alternate said she would have put Irina Slutskaya’s mess of a skate over Sarah Hughes long program if she was the judge? well there is going to be another case of manipulation if the ex soviet’s think they have a shot at putting Alena Leonova on the medal podium. They will blatantly cheat without any regard to fairness. I am SO glad I could care less who wins the Olympics this year because I already have no hope for the sport who hides which judge blatantly cheats.

Yuna Kim singled a triple and is sitting in second ahead of Miki Ando. The lone American is in last. Hey I guess we should be happy she even made the final.

Congratulations to Cassie Whitcomb and Amanda Jetter for winning the 14th International Tournament of Pas-de-Calais. Marta finally sent Cassie over seas. It’s to bad she didn’t send her to a better event.

Chellsie Memmel is NOT going the the 2009 Toyota International.

November 30, 2009

First she leaves camp early and now the meet she was supposed to go to she is not on the list. Add that to her getting rid of her fan facebook and the rumor mill about her retirement seems likely.

It’s to bad she should continue. Why does every US girl quit the sport when they get a boyfriend? Chellsie announced she was seeing a new guy and now she isn’t competing. Nastia starts to allegedly date Evan the skater and then she takes times off. What is with these girls?

I doubt Evan would quit skating to fly across the Country and hang out with Nastia.
