This and That
An interview with Alicia Sacramone from the UGA-Denvel-BYU-Air Force meet. It is interesting that she is injured yet again, which may put her upgrades and floor tumbling in question. She hasn't upgraded in years and it is time to be realistic. She will head back to Boston to train within the week.
Canadian Nationals streaming schedule. In case we need to be Canadian to use the site, it would be a great help if someone could offer a brief tutorial on how to get around this and block our IP addresses.
A video interview with a few Bruins after their loss to Stanford at the Pac 10 Showcase. It is interesting that Miss Val is realistic after the meet, while the other girls interviewed are still living and breathing the cultish nature of NCAA gym. One would think they'd won the meet after listening to Elyse. While Elyse had a great meet for herself, the team lost. I guess it really is all about team now, isn't it? ;) It would be a dream to hear one NCAA gymnast be real and drop the cult act for five seconds. "We really need to get in shape and get it together. I think some extra cardio is in order."
Johnny Weir's appearance schedule. His book hits shelves tomorrow.
Ksenia Makarova is living with her grandparents in Moscow and is now training with Evgeni Rukavitsyn. If he can help her jumps and her stroking, the move will have been well worth it.
An entertaining interview with Matthew Mitcham. He talks about everything from diving, to being an A-List gay, to her admiration for Johnny Weir.
