So I was beyond excited this year for the Olympics. The hubs and I even purchased the extra sports package through our cable provider so we could watch all the Olympic trials. We had a blast watching them, cuddled up on the couch, for once not arguing about me watching reality tv or him playing his stupid video games.
I watched Sunday night as the women competed for the first time and though Jordyn Weiber was ripped off. As amazing as Gabby and Aly were, I thought Jordyn was better. Aly is just not a consistent gymnast. But oh well. I have read many books on the sport of gymnastics and all of them state the political nature of the sport.i recently finished Dominique moceanus new book where she states the same thing. And I have to say its obvious there is a lot of politics surrounding gymnastics.
That being said I cried when the USA won the gold. They were all amazing. I am so excited for the all around( though wish Jordyn was competing instead of Aly) and then the individual events. Go USA. You girls deserve it
And I had to share this. Did anyone else see this clip of Aly Raismans parents. It is hilarious. They are so awkward looking in this clip! I thought my parents were embarrassing at sporting events growing up.
