She's probably a little embarassed. She always had the most confidence going into the games because:1. She was only needed to hit one event (really there was literally no other place she was useful given what the US was working with on that team).2. She had a lot of confidence because she knew as long as she stood up her vaults she was going to win her Gold medal in the EF.And then she dropped that Gold medal... And Izbasa dug it like a US Women's Volleyball player...And then you never know the kinds of girl talk that went on at the Hotel over those nights between TF and VT EF.The hillarious thing is that if she had saved that stuck Amanar for the EF she would have won even WITH the fall... And even though that vault she did in EF (the first one) was ridiculously good even with the step, she still scored lower than Douglas' AA VT...
I can't believe how many times I said "And ..." in that post. I sound like Boginskaya in an interview right after she learned to speak English.
Don't worry your English is still better than Olga Korbut's.
I love that you all miss the point of the hilarity of her being a meme. All of you.
She would have been plenty useful on FX if she didn't break her toe. I would preferred to see McKayla's floor routine instead of Kyla's phantom monstrosity.
am I the only one who thought her Amanar in the EF was underscored?
I did until I realized that she landed OOB. That's .3 off the score. She'd have been over 16 otherwise (and won, too, hilariously enough.I think the real problem is a bunch of Amanars were OVERscored, which then made McKayla's scores look bizarre by comparison.
Yes Anon 1:18. Jordyn and Gabby's probably did deserve in the 15.8-15.9, but that just means that Mckayla should have scored a 16.5. Shitty amanars score mid 15s and Mckayla's is much better than half a point.The amanar is going to be 6.3, so a TTY would be like a 6.8? Go for a 16.8 Mckayla!!
ah ok, I didnt realise she landed OOB-- such a shame! I hope she continues to Rio-- she has much more to offer!

what's a meme
She's the new Whatevia.
The NBC one is my favorite.
But did she dis Mickey Mouse????("This is the corniest thing I've ever done," for those old enough to remember.)
I want her to get the TTY and maybe even a double-back Yurchenko named after her and get put on the national teams every time just for vault so the crusty ASac fans can cry some more.
It's not either-or, you ninny. You can love Sacramone AND Maroney, because they're both awesome.
tell that to the asac stans then. they'll probably just call you a four year fan because everyone is wrong and they are right.
Haha, did anyone see this?:http://www.sbnation.com/2012/8/11/3236131/mckayla-maroney-not-impressed-pool-is-closedI love people who know how to laugh at themselves. McKayla wins awesome points. Girlfriend needs her own reality show for real.
