2018 US NATIONALS
- Feelings Corner: Starring Jessica O’Beirne and TEAL WONDER WOMAN GUARDIAN ANGEL HUGS
- Senior Discussion (8:35): This was a historically well-hit nationals. Does it undermine the notion that the women need regular national team camps? And is it weird how much credit we give the coaches instead of the athletes?
- Gushing: Simone, Morgan, Riley. Duh.
- Err: What was the deal with Ragan Smith?
- Plus: Jade Carey sticking a Moors, justice for Kara Eaker, TRINITY, some love for Jaylene Gilstrap, and Jordan Chiles’ attempt at Wolfkino Part 2 didn’t really work out. Twice.
- We’re very concerned that Tom Forster doesn’t understand the Olympic qualification process (36:04)
- Kerry Perry deigned to address the media, and it was awful
- Ron Galimore: STILL THERE
- What change can really happen when people who DON’T EVEN BELIEVE THE SURVIVORS are being given positions of power in the women’s program?
OK, BACK TO NATIONALS
- All the behind the scenes goodies from the So You Think You Can Dutch meet-up contest (1:06:56)
- Juniors (1:11:50) Leanne Wong is the junior national champion because of EXECUTION
- An update on Jordan Bowers’ status
- Jessica is putting Konnor McGregor-McClain on all the Olympic teams
- Where does champion Sam Mikulak fit in the international all-around scene?
- Day 1 was….bad. But it’s all going to be OK.
- LEAVE. POMMEL. HORSE. ALONE. (It’s the good event now.)
- Team conundrums
- Kensley and Spencer debate Allan Bower’s place on the team
- Donnell Whittenburg wasn’t even named to the national team, and John Orozco has some thoughts. Is there racial bias in the men’s program dressed up as concerns about “work ethic”?
- Should Colin Van Wicklen be doing this Dragulescu?
- Massive conflicts of interest and judging favoritism aren’t just a women’s thing!
- Most importantly: Taco Bell sponsorship ideas
