402: 1984 NCAA Championships (Commissioned)

LISTEN HERE

 

 

Today, we have an episode commissioned by Club Gym Nerd member Helen, who asked for an episode about the 1984 NCAA Championships! That means we get to discuss sexism, a time when there were more than 16 men’s college teams, Baby Kathy Johnson commentary, Mitch GAYLORD and his GAYLORD, Timmy “The Bull” Daggett, a coach marrying a current athlete because 80s, and a time when Utah Gymnastics ruled the world!

You guys:

  • You had to have a mustache and giant glasses or you weren’t allowed to coach.
  • Men had to wear little diapers on floor
  • FEATHERED HAIR AND BIG BANGS AND LAYERS AND FROSTED BLUE EYE SHADOW
  • The springboard might be made of rice paper
  • An entire fluff piece about how hot Mitch Gaylord is and how cool it is that he rides a motorcycle
  • “Tim Daggett style”
  • How you dealt with a major injury in 1984
  • Fan-girling over Lisa Zeis and Heidi Anderson and Tami Elliott and (that’s right) Elfi Schlegel
  • Spencer has a coronary embolism over the state of NCAA scoring in 1984
  • The famous Greg and Megan fluff piece about their marriage

  1. Tell your co-host that ICE SKATING is not a sport. FIGURE skating, SPEED skating, SYNCHRONIZED skating are all performed on ICE. To refer to these REAL SPORTS as \”ice skating\” is the equivalent to gymnastics being nothing but somersaults and cartwheels.
