This and That



The Fab 5.

Larisa Iordache has appeared off in training in London.  She did not vault this morning and only did a tumbling pass before stopping and was in tears throughout the workout.  Iordache did do bars.  Belu appeared frustrated with her according to gymnastike.  The Romanians skipped their evening workout.  This could be a strategy to rest up and look their best for tomorrow's podium training.

Shawn Johnson will now make you vomit up your cheerios as a Today show correspondent.  The loss of Ann Curry wasn't bad enough...and neither were Shawn's floor routines...  #hateful

Handsome cancer survivor Eric Shanteau swims for gold.


Shannon Miller is not only America's best-ever gymnast, she is aiming to be the prettiest yogi ever.  I live for her pointed toes at all time, which is not always typical of the crazy flexible vegans.  Someone, me thinks Shannon's obsessive compulsiveness prevents her from attaining a truly zen-like practice.


Quotes from Team USA on Podium Training

Sam Mikulak and John Orozco climbed up the Olympic rings earlier.  McKayla Maroney, currently under Martha's lockdown, was extremely jealous.  She has to spend her days perfecting her head tilt with photo booth.

Fabian Hambuchen looks fantastic in training.  He is drilling a difficult high bar sets and Yurchenko 2.5 vaults.


Nia the working girl.

  1. Love the Fab 5! I am predicting a reality show or girl pop band for them after the Olympics. Can any of them carry a tune?

    1. I'm not a producer or anything but here's how I'd cast them:
      Gabby - vocals
      Jordyn - backup vocals
      Aly - drone in the background, tambourine
      McKayla - crazy/flexy dancer à la Pussycat Dolls
      Kyla - keyboard(s)

    2. Worst. NBC commercial. Ever. Really? It's not cool at all when you have to say your OWN nickname. And how the hell did McKayla get "Tarzan"? Kyla does look like a mouse, though...

    3. Gabby will not be a part of the band. We all know the other girls hate her. Or maybe they'll keep her in the band to stir things up and create a scandal to snatch attention.

    4. I keep seeing hints of this everywhere. Why do the other girls dislike Gabby?? She seems so sweet and unassuming.

  2. "North Greenwich Arena -- After having been caught having an afternoon romp at the local bathhouse, Jake Dalton assesses the situation while the rest of the team looks down in disappointment as they return to Podium Training."

  4. When Nastia said she got a job in NBC Olympics, then NBC announced Shawn to be Today Show's Special Correspondent. What a big slap to her and her fanatics (especially AJ).
