    Hate to rain on the “Morgi for President” parade, but she’s not a “natural born citizen” and therefore cannot ever be eligible (barring a constitutional amendment). Secretary of State, Senator, Congresswoman are all open to her, but not Prez or VP.

    The coach from Maximum was officially investigated once before for the same issue (I believe he was at another gym then. The finding was that a parent was upset about her daughter’s level placement and made false accusations in retaliation – he was cleared. Someone is probably owed some GIANT apologies. I wonder how many more there are. 🙁

The little school kids are back in the stands but so quiet today! Everyone was instructed not to yell but they are enthusiastically clapping along to rotation song. They expert the arena to be sold out for finals.
