  2. I love Mustafina, Porgras, and yes, BROSS! Girl nailed the shitt out of floor after she could have folded from the beam disappointment. She hasn't even been throwing floor routines in weeks. I continue to be impressed by her ability to overcome obstacles.

  3. That pak picture shows how weird Becca's legs are... Her knees are together, but the lower part of her legs extend outward. I've never seen that on a gymnast before. It makes her ability to do everything she does all the more impressive, I feel.

  4. I can't stand watching Bross. I really don't like how she moves. Her swing on bars is so choppy (and her arms on stalders! UGH!). She has absolutely no presentation on beam or floor, no flow to her movement. It's painful. And then they saddled her with that awful choreography to a jazzy "Dark Eyes"! What were they thinking? It only highlights her faults.

    I was watching the feed today and the Mustafina did bars immediately after Bross, and the difference in the quality of swing was enormous. Mustafina has faults of her own (crossed legs on twists, the low tkatchev, sketchy pre-flight on vault) but she doesn't make me want to claw my eyes out.

  6. Oddly enough, I do love Becca's Pak. She has a great stretched body line despite the weird legs.

    Could you be anymore of an ahole? And the scores are in, No.

  11. I actually really dig Bross's bars. I love the way she swings sooo freaking agressively. She totally flies.

  12. I was too lazy to put in my info. Happy now, Robin?

    And you're just always very negative about that girl. It's tiresome.

  13. No one has to put their name here so shut up robin.

    Bross sucks and I am sick of her being overscored. This AA is a joke because of her. No one else seems to benefit after a fall like her

  14. Feirce fugly totally pulled it out after the beam fall. She showed major balls trying to stay on...and then...gritted it out on FX to steal a medal from China. Love that!

    That's the stuff.

  15. I think it sucks for the sport of gymnastics that the wobbly stuff Mustafina contributes is considered so great. I miss actual elegance. 90's....

  16. As fugly as Bross's legs may be, it's not exactly something she can help, so I try my best to ignore those. And the kid is so damn FIERCE that I'm getting better & better at ignoring them. Seriously. Where the hell did that FX come from with her busted leg and all of the fail that she has had on that apparatus in the past? Her choreography is still lame, and I HATE that version of "Dark Eyes," but I was pretty impressed.

    Her beam fail was classic Nastia. Nastia even mentioned her 2006 fail which was similar on the post show thing. Does daddy Liukin actually teach them to try to cheat a beam fall with a handstand? Because if he does, he obviously doesn't teach it WELL...

  17. Actually she seemed like with just a bit more fight, she could have pulled it off. Maybe she should start doing pommels and work on those funky dismounts they do.

  18. Bross is FIERCE. There is no one else I would want competing in a 3 up 3 count format. Her gymnastics may not be the most beautiful I have ever seen but she is pure fight. And you gotta respect that.

  19. Bross is awesome mentally and so physically fit. Otherwise, she looks like a dolally disabled bird doing gymn.
