Let's talk gymnastics



Remember when Nastia tied for 1st place with the chinese baby and then ended up with the Silver??? That was nuts and I understand how they did the scoring and how she ended up with silver, but I definitely feel for her. How crappy to get the same exact score as the girl who gets gold... but somehow end up with silver.



Let's take another trip down gymnastics memory lane.... Shawn Johnson rocked on the dance routine. She had to go first, and kept the highest score til the very last person. I might be biased, but I really thought her routine was better than the other chica. Sorry American girls, I was really cheering for you. But silver rocks too and you have definitely kept gymnastics as one of my fav olympic sports to watch.

Yeah, and remember when China cheated and used all babies on their team, and then the babies beat the Americans. I mean I know the Americans made some big mistakes, but China cheated.... so doesn't that mean they should give America the gold? Or did I miss the memo that cheating is allowed in the Olympics now? Let start sending our babies!

Did you see the vault where the china girl fell on her face and she still took the bronze over the USA girl. I think someone is paying the judges off(or threatening to kill them). So does the Belakoroli guy (I have no idea how to spell his name).

oh and yes lets go see that movie.

When Chinese girf fell on her knees and knocked Alicia Sacramone out of medal contention I crapped. I just want you to know. PS if Shawn Johnson doesn't take the gold in the beam I will kill someone.

I would never tell anyone but secretly I kinda like it when the skinny girls lose. That's just one less picture I have to stare at while i'm drinking my o.j. :)

I totally wanted to post this - but you clearly beat me to it. I love old Nastia and hate the 12 year old chinese girls... They were still rocking their baby teeth - no way they were 16
