College & Cocktails: UCLA at Utah

Welcome to College & Cocktails!

College & Cocktails combines our weekly Behind The Scenes Q&A live podcast with a college meet of the week. We start after the college meet ends on Friday nights (Pacific time). It’s our appreciation love letter to club members for supporting the show. Here’s how to ask questions live.

We are talking about all the Friday meets with special focus on the (only?) true rivelry in the Pac-12; UCLA and Utah. We’re going live right here on this page around 7:30pm Pacific after the meet ends. For more info on how to watch your favorite elites, Olympic and World medalists all year long, check out The Balance Beam Situation’s schedule with links.

I haven’t listened yet, watching the meet now. I’m sad I missed it live because I have such a rant. Am I the only person who HATES every leo UCLA wears?!? They’re always so unflattering! I’m not saying they need to go the wedgie leo route that is so popular but get a stylist in there to fit those leos to the bodies and flatter their curves!!!

Ok, rant over lol I knew I could come here to share this thought.
