Humboid's Professional Gymnastics Analysis

Look what I've just done for you, 'Boid. Your own thread where you can give us your up to the minute pro analysis on olympic gymnastics.

Who are the favorites? Who's the black horse? Will Romania regain their crown? Will that aging Russian broad with the looooong legs be competing again? Etc... etc...

Hurrah for Paquador!

And most important of all, shows your prowess on the canvas. Start with a headstand split.

I've seen Humboid in full gymnastics gear.... on the balance beam.

Shhh! Don't tell her I told you so

PS- She has auburn hair color. That's all I'm allowed to say..... for now.

Hurrah for Paquador!

It's much darker now, Loco. For a while at least, until the Clairol box runs out.

....

Svetlana Khorkina has retired.

I believe it is the intention of the Chinese team to build up so many points on the uneven bars that they can coast through the rest of the team competition. There has been a controversy over the ages of at least two of the gymnasts, who appear to possibly be 13 years old. Won't be the first time it has happened. One of my favorite Romanians, Daniela Silivas, admitted years ago that her birth certificate was altered so she could compete early.

The US should win team gold and invidual all around (Shawn Johnson) if nothing unusual happens, like a major commie plot or something.

I haven't been following it as closely as I used to. There's so much emphasis on power tumbling now rather than dance. I haven't seen an outstanding dancer since Svetlana Boguinskaya. And that was a long time ago. Look at the American girls, they all have thighs like a weightlifters. They can't dance with those things. That's all done to get enough power to get around on the double layouts that seem to be required now.

But tomorrow is new day and new chance. -- Alija

What about the women? ... err... I mean girls. Do they win anything this time around?

Also: Is that Russian/ East European perv... err... I mean coach going to be present? You know, the one who likes to 'congratulate' the girls by rubbing his hands all over the little girls' butt cheeks.

Hurrah for Paquador!

That's what I'm talking about . The US should win the women's team and individual all around golds. There are also competitions for each apparatus.

Not like him. He was really uncomfortable to watch sometimes. He was Nadia Comaneci's coach in 1976 then he and his wife defected to the US from Romania a year or so before Nadia did.

Did you ever get a perfect 10 like Nadia when you were competing?

Where do you keep your '84 Olympics silver medal? Safe deposit box? Underneath your mattress? Next to Mr H's NCAA Defensive player of the year award?

Hurrah for Paquador!

They have changed the code of points. There won't be any more perfect 10's awarded.

Best beam. worst vault.

I should have said Soviet, not Russian. They can't get away wtih that anymore. They used to cheat all the time as the USSR. Nadia should have won the all around in 1980 but the Soviets fixed it so that Davydova won. Everyone knew it was a crock of shit.
