Jessica, your paranoia about a chinese conspiracy cracks me up, but our press on the national scale isn’t exactly free and open either. I realize you’re not a racist, but your bias against everything chinese does seem a little irrational lol.

hey guys! love the podcast. I just wanted to make a point about the scoring of skinners cheng. In jesolo she got a 15.65 (9.25 execution), do you think she will get something similar considering that jesolo was with international judges and the judging there is usually quite tight?

I wanted to thank you all for the great preview show – I listened to it yesterday while in Excel-hell (aka budget season) at the office & it made my day infinitely better. Then when I woke up uber early this morning & couldn’t get back to sleep, your podcast was still in my head and reminded me that live feed for USA men was on. Woohoo! Live gym at 5am! Since when are we good on pommels?! Also Jess – your comments about “your boyfriend Donnell” made me really watch his sets for the first time and damn he’s good. Keep up the fab work gymcastic!

Just an FYI, the male judge on the Dutch pole dancing show? He’s a professional ballroom dancer, Louis Van Amstel, a Dutch National champion, Blackpool, and US professional champion.

Love the podcast. But one correction. Maroney fell last year at Worlds in the qualification round on beam.
