The way Paseka started her vault with her legs straddled before eventually snapping them together, I thought she was doing a lower body Gator chomp.

It annoys me that the podcast crew doesn’t like Kocian. Whether they’d admit it or not, they don’t. When they talk about her it’s like the equivalent of sitting on their hands when everyone else is clapping. She’s a great gymnast and incredible on bars and American (assuming they are too). All the endless Mustafina ego stroking is tiresome. And, btw Mustafina’s routine is lovely but tons of toes/feet and leg separations issues. Would like to see a bit more respect and deference to the US team. (Similar feelings towards their commentary of Aly)
