Not in the mood to blog so……………..

5 Stages of grief

Denial WTF are you talking about
Anger WTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT
Bargaining WTF, Okay you can have Gomes but we keep Lester and Cepedes.
DepressionBut Yooou can’t take Jonny,Jon and John Waaaah
Acceptance- Not today ( See you in October)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tonight I was at Fenway. Turns out Bridget Sloan was also at Fenway. We were in the same section and I had no clue. My seats were better than her but it makes me laugh to know she was literally 10 feet away and I had no clue. SMALLEST world EVER. Glad to know I didn’t have to suffer alone.

Bridget wants to know how the game is played and LOL had the best comment to that. Yep well the players on the field have no clue how to play either. WHATEVER RedSox. Is that a beer Bridget?

Look at Aly go.

Mckayla Maroney is out this year. Probably a good thing.

Can Kyla or Simone join the list of US All Around Champions ?

September 27, 2013

Can Kyla or join the list of US All Around Champions ?

The United States has 6 World All Around Champions and a very good shot at having a seventh this year so tell me which of these two do you think has the best shot at winning the 2013 World All Around title?

Clean and consistent Kyla Ross or powerful and explosive Simone Biles?

Simone has the edge in start value. Kyla has the edge in execution. Take your pick?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Remembering the past

Kim Zmeskal started the US’s world AA titles winning in Indianapolis in 1991. Shannon Miller followed it up winning back to back titles in 1993 and 1994. (Outside the US) Then we waited until 2005 when Chellsie Memmel defeated pure evil by the smallest margin imaginable. Shawn Johnson was next in 2007 followed by Bridget Sloan in 2009 and ending with Jordyn Wieber in 2011.

So who do Kyla and Simone remind you of when compared to successful world all around champions of the past?

For me Kyla reminds me of Shannon. Clean, consistent and labeled boring by the people that cannot find a real reason to hate is pretty much the gist of it IMO. Shannon has more rhythm and flow and is a better dancer than Kyla but no one else really fits the question. Kyla isn’t quite an artistic gymnast though she is working on it.

Simone is a combination of all other remaining gymnasts. She reminds me of Shawn or Chellsie on floor. Not much presentation but a hell of a tumbler. On bars she is Bridget. There but nothing special. On beam she is hit or miss. She could be any of them but Zmeskal who was a rock on beam. When it comes to vault I guess she reminds me mostly of Jordyn but only because they both have the Amanar. Simone is dynamic and impressive with her Amanar and that doesn’t really fit anyone else on the list.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Judging by past US World AA champions if I had to garner a guess I would say the judges prefer the Simone Biles of the gym world over the Kyla Ross’s. The US has only one artistic gymnast with a World AA title. In fact she has two of them.

Mckayla on Hart of Dixie Tuesday night

November 19, 2012

The question of her acting talent has been answered. I say don’t quit your day job kid but if you want to be an actress, study the craft.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will be paying a little attention to College gymnastics this season since Bridget Sloan will be competing for Florida. Here is what her coach expects of her.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Vanessa Zamarripa will do elite again. Not sure why but it is nice to see someone continue with no Olympics on the horizon.

Someone deserves her own thread

June 7, 2012

We have not seen much of Bridget Sloan since 2009 and whilE I am not impressed with parts of routines the rest of the world seems to think this has potential.

Is Bridget Sloan a dark horse? Regardless she deserves her own blog:)

New Floor routine

The Nastia Liukin way.

March 14, 2012

Everyone else was at camp. Not because it is their favorite thing to do but because they were told. It’s time to put up or shut up but not Nastia Liukin. She is “hurt” she can’t come to camp. She can’t show what she has 4 months before the Olympics. Oh no she is in LA filming the price to right?

Are you ******* kidding me?

She is there to “promote” the Olympic Trials. A place she wouldn’t sniff if the world was fair. Hell, I am not sure the world is even round anymore.

Any boss worth their shit would be banning this little twit from any camps in the future after pulling this little ditty but Marta probably sent her there to do it.

If I am Aly Raisman or Mckayla Maroney this pisses me off. They are one of the two likely left off the Olympic team so little miss perfect can be named to the team.

What about Shawn, Alicia or Bridget ? ALL were given no assignments at all after the most recent camp (even though they probably weren’t ready to compete anyway) They were practically threatened to be at camp but Nastia gets to stay home and rest her ” hurt shoulder”

Please tell me I am not the only person who finds this complete bullshit?

Someone tell Rebecca Bross to stop competing because it is obvious the only way on the Olympic team is to kiss Marta’s big fat ass. Just ask Nastia.

wow

World Champions say whaaaat?

How do you have a photo shoot for Olympic hopefuls and leave out not one but two World AA Champions?

We don’t really know why Bridget Sloan and Chellsie Memmel weren’t at the photo shoot for Olympic hopefuls set up by NBC over the week but being it’s, NBC they probably weren’t invited.

Not inviting Chellsie is one thing. Her AA title is so last quad but Bridget Sloan is the first AA World Champion the US had in this new quad to forget she even exists is just plain wrong.

Shame on you NBC. I hope Bridget Sloan takes this slight and kicks ass at Nationals.

Live: Pan Am games

Vault:

Red leo’s with squiggly things on the sleeve. I liked them.

The US girls got some gifts on vault. Jessie piked her DTY down but stuck the dismount getting the highest score. Shawn took a big step on her landing and Brandie Jay’s form is just atrocious. Caquatto must have fallen because she scored 13.925. Grace was first with a 1.5. Brandie’s second vault was a mess but still scored a 14. 4 something.

Poor Elsa Garcia fell twice off beam, so far. She’s in tears.

Uneven Bars:

They only showed Brandie Jay, Bridgey C and Bridget Sloan on bars. Brandie hit her routine, missed a beginning hand stand and was killed on her Execution score. Caquatto stayed on and Sloan must have missed a connection or something because they took forever for her score and it was only late 13.’s. Shawn must have nailed her routine because she got a 14.400

and now I have lost the connection.

5.900 start value for Shawn. 8.500 execution. I just watched her routine in slow/fast motion. It was a slow motion feed but speed up. It was interesting.lol

Was that Wieler kip on the high bar?

I have no sound.

and now I have soccer.hmm

and partial routine from Brandie J. back to men standing around…

Beam:

Shawn fell twice. She was nailing it until the the falls. How crapola.
12.875 is not a bad score for two falls. The rest of the girls so far score in the 13’s. She could have had a score over 15 if she had hit. it’s too bad she gets no other chance to prove what she can do on this routine.
I am pretty sure this is team finals not prelims.

Floor

and now I have running. Honestly this feed sucks. Jessie just did a bouncy floor routine but she stayed on her feet. Saw some of Brandie Jay’s routine where she was again killed on the execution score. Saw some of Caquatto’s floor that she literally walks through instead of dances through.

The US won.
Canada second and the kicker,

The US won by over a point.

They killed Kenny. I mean Macko

September 20, 2011

No one knows for sure what the injury but I have received a few anon messages that she is hurt and the bible messages are rolling in.

It’s too bad. She was allegedly hurt on beam an event she wasn’t even needed for.

Heal soon Macko. GO Bridget Sloan!

And on the support front Nastia doesn’t seem to give a crap. She is tweeting how much fake fun she is having with Alicia and Shawn. Why is she there again>

Camp fall down

September 8, 2011

The last day of camp was a lot of fun according to Aunt Joyce. I won’t be linking him because frankly I am over blogs only in existence to get gymnasts to be friends with them but take for granted that anything I say here about camp comes from Aunt Joyce unless noted.

So Anna Li, Bridget Sloan and Macko all fell off bars. Anna was consistent in training until it mattered, then she fell. Gabby hit bars. Chellsie did not do bars. Shawn hit bars but with no upgrade.

So what does this tell us?

Chellsie Memmel not doing bars is a big mistake. If she plans on saving herself for the next camp it is going to be to late. Chellsie also fell off beam.

Anna Li hitting in practice and falling when it matters SHOULD be a wake up call. Even considering her for just bars with the way this team is at the moment will only hurt the US in the end.

Bridget Sloan is the interesting case. She fell. She fell all over the place last year and hit when it mattered. Taking a chance on her didn’t bite us in the ass last time but that was last time.

No news on anyone else.

Looks more and more like Gabby Douglas will be on this team.

Maybe a good idea will be to forget bars and just use Aly or Mckayla and build up beam and floor by taking Shawn for beam and Sabrina for floor. Shawn could do bars, beam and vault in prelims. We could see how the judges will score her on bars.

That would make the team

Jordyn, Alicia, Aly, Mckayla, Sabrina and Shawn using whoever hits best in prelims for bars. It would be the extreme gamble that might pay off in the end.

In this scenario Gabby stays home. Sabrina is as big of a head case as Gabby but she usually hits floor.

In related news Alicia has a tweet that implies she is already on the team. Her ego amazes me. I can’t wait for her to be pushed out next year on a 5 member team. Time to knock her ego down.
