  4. I am so tired of everyone kissing sacramones ass. I am not impressed with her chorreography. It kinda looks like the redundant trash that the UCLA coach shits out and tries to call a work of art.

  5. Val does way better choreo than that. Sac doesn't really have anything in that routine besides attitude and posing. Don't diss Val comparing that trash to her.

  6. I agree. Same old shit for Sac. She needs to just go away.

  7. well miss val does recycle choreography more then anyone but at least they do tend to present well. I honestly think it is the code that limits these gymnasts.

  8. Wow.... saying the current Vault World Champion needs to go away. What kind of shit are you smoking? I want some of it because it must be some good stuff!

  9. ha, wow. I'm SO not an SJ fan, but watching her dance through, it looks like she has actually learned to listen to the music and dance a little. Now I'm actually interested in her comeback...

  10. @Anonymous 4:55PM THIS!!! I have NEVER been impressed by Sacramone with the exception of her powerful vaults. On events like FX NOT and a Beam leaves me cold too-maybe it's that inelegant chin stand that she's NOT flexible enough to do exceptionally well. I was never a Shawn fan but I am very interested in seeing a full floor routine from her. Girl seems to have improved tremendously artistic-wise on that event though she'll never reach the level of a Pavlova, Porgras or even a Mustafina.
