A Gift From Baby Jesus



Allison Taylor hasn't done squat in her tenure at UCLA, so now they have her hosting a Public Relations youtube/UCLABruins.com video series.  It is similar to when athletes medically retire and work in the gym office in order to log in the hours they would be training in the gym, in exchange for their scholarship.

We've always known that Allison helps the Team GPA, but not that she is a Sociology major.  I've never met a Sociology course that I didn't get an 'A' in with minimal effort.  Just saying.  It is obviously an improvement over the football players who all major in Criminal Justice---based on the records of those players, they wind up utilizing their criminal law experience.

This edition of Taylor's Twist serves as an endorsement for everyone.  If you become a Bruin, you too can be just as tan with a permawhite smile.  It is from all those Beach workouts.

I can't wait to see the video clips of Catch Phrase!  Their banter may answer the age old question: just how developmentally delayed do gymnasts become?

  2. Yikes, if I hear "um", "uh", and "exciting" one more time in this video...

  3. I would looooove to read some of her papers for that political philosophy class. Based on this vid, I'm sure they would be a real treat.

  5. ucla has seems to have a lot of girls in the background. What happened to Danielle Grieg? She was nowhere to be seen at the PAC 10 meet. I guess they need girls for their GPA? Does anyone know why they have these girls who never get to compete (besides Tiffany Hyland who is their number 1 cheerleader)?

  6. Someone shoot her please.

  7. Dani Grieg is in virtually the same role Hyland is. Glorified cheerleader. I think it has a lot to do with Val not liking to turn girls away if they're willing to be cheerleaders and basically cater to the needs of those who compete.

  8. I wish people would stop making fun of those who may not be very articulate. I have a couple friends who have difficulties coming across as even semi-intelligent while speaking, but are lovely writers and were high honors students. Some people just need more time for thoughts to come to their heads than others (and they need more time to organize those thoughts). And then there are the people who can blabber on easily for hours...Everyone's different. It is not always easy for inarticulate speakers to improve either-- as they try to build their confidence, they are being teased for being inarticulate. It's a never-ending cycle for some people, but it doesn't mean they lack all intelligence.

  9. Who fucking cares about what classes this bimbo is taking? Seriously. How about this, Ms. Taylor: why don't you discuss how much guilt you suffer every night because you haven't done a GODDAMN THING for UCLA as an athlete, yet take their scholarship money? What a stupid bitch. Just like her mother. Stupid is as stupid breeds.

  10. well said anony 5:43. The pathetic thing is what is this bitch going to get from a Sociology degree? Not a whole hell of a lot. That is the easiest major of all time.

  11. Placing 2nd to Utah? Was it not a dual meet? I believe it was. So, basically they loss. Ha! Great way to phrase it though.

    ReplyDelete
  12. No kidding, there is no second place at a dual meet.

    I think Val hinted in one of the ask the bruins that Hyland gets taken on road trips because she's great at managing the schedule (aka keeping everyone on track, probably fetching water and grips and stuff)

    Anyhoo Val will always have a lot of walkons becuase odds are some of them will be useful on the team (Ari, Mizuki, Niki) or they might be really good for the team in another way (cheerleading, fetching water, etc)

  13. Val also said somewhere that the girls like having Tiffany Hyland on the road trips with them because she "knows what [they] need before [they] do." Not really sure what that means but maybe she is a good mental coach?

  14. Taylor really needs to give up. She is not going to compete this year, she did not for the last few years. Did she ever have a counting score for UCLA? If she likes being fodder then great, but lets face it, she is a waste of space. I can not believe that Miss Val thinks she is worth that much. Hey how about it AJ, get a miss val interview and ask her what she was thinking the last four years by giving her a scholarship.

  15. Why is everyone so mean about Allison Taylor? I get that the position she's in is kind of lends itself to being made fun of, but wow, people who've never even met her are being so cruel. I'm lookin at a few of you in this thread, but especially you 5:43 am. What are you so miserable about in your life? She's not exactly taking food out of kids' mouths.

  16. She may actually be pretty smart and a good student and have trouble articulating her thoughts, true... but she went to that joke of a school, Spring Creek Academy, so I'm thinking she's probably just, how do I say this? Not that smart...?

  17. Just so everyone knows, Allison Taylor just competed tonight @ SUU. She did bars (she fell) and an exhibition floor routine. Also, Mizuki Sato got injured on her beam dismount. I don't know how serious it is. SUU won...

  18. what made UGA so dominant.... sure Courtney Kupets and the fact that the judges loved them.... but they were also an deep, excellent team. When a girl got injured or a routine lost, the girl who stepped up didn't miss a beat, there was hardly ever a score drop off. They were talented all the way down and the back ups were always ready to go... UCLA just proved their back ups are on par with Southern Utah

  19. Is there any truth to the rumor that Alison is going to do Elite again at the same gym that Anna Li is training? Heavens if it is true, this could be a very interesting summer with lots of NCAA gymnasts competing.

  20. Not all Spring Creek kids are dumb. LVE just started law school at Baylor.

  21. Anon @10:10: Huh? on the articulate part. I just read her blog and watched this vid; if AT wants a career in sports marketing/management, she really has no excuse to practice and refine excellent public speaking skills. Then again, the point of her video series could be to do just that. If so, no one should be surprised if an audience doesn't have patience for a poorly delivered talk.

    I'm not sure what the point of the video was, though. It would have been nice to have had some actual gymnastics commentary vs. three minutes of fluff.
