    TV - What's your passion (NON-sports)?

    Wednesday turned out to be exactly as I predicted with considerably less enriching world-building than Harry Potter, and a lot more "CW fanfic" level-writing than I would have liked. Jenna Ortega is flawless as Wednesday, and her relationship with "rainbows and unicorns" werewolf roomie Enid...

    TV - What's your passion (NON-sports)?

    I'm so thankful to have recently (re)discovered Community streaming on Netflix. I saw a few episodes of it years ago and remembered liking it, but never sought it out until earlier this month. The "crappy Community college" setting is so refreshingly quirky, and gives room for a lot of...

    Fire Up The Beam!

    What's a beam themed song? Parliament's Flash Light? Even still, think it should be: Sacramento Victory - (Don't Fear) The Reaper More Cowbell.

    I got here a full 5 months before the Cap, and I also did not know there was a chat room.

    Poor Zmeskal, another Karolyi “protege” or victim depending on your angle. Absolutely dominant gymnast at every level, except the Olympics, when most Americans actually pay attention. Stress fracture doomed her in Barcelona, and an ACL tear kept her out of the Magnificent 7. Karolyi abandoned...

    And now they’re the Damn Yankees. Biles, Lee, Carey, Chiles, McClain, Jones. Any one of them would be the top talent in most other countries. But the US can trot out a line-up with one of them designated an alternate. Only Russia and China can even hope to compete with that depth. Even then...

    Wrapping up Worlds with the final two individual events. Bit of a wonky day on Balance Beam as the 3 favorites: Adrande, Blakely, and China’s Ou, all fell, opening the door for Watanabe and Miyata to nab Gold and Bronze for Japan, with Ellie Black, having the tournament of her life, bringing...

    Carey and Chiles went 1-2 on Vault at worlds, with France’s Devillard edging out Ellie Black for bronze. Bit of a redemption moment for Carey who misstepped on the event in the Olympics pushing her out of the medal running, despite having been an early favorite. This time it was Andrade with...

    And speaking of that force of nature … Andrade wins the All-Around gold, Brazil’s first World/Olympic AA Gold. Jones takes silver for the US. Great Britain’s Gadirova (Edit: Jessica for those of you really curious which twin) earns bronze. Cool fact I learned today: Brazil had no active...

    Super late on this because, well, been a helluva week but … US Women win GOLD at Worlds!!! … as expected. Even still, cool to see them take home a record-breaking 6th world title in a row. No Biles. No Lee. No McClain. (no russia). No Worries. Carey is some kind of stoic, clockwork...

    [2022] Gone But Not Forgotten

    You’re right. It was Friday. Frustrating the articles just started popping up in my Google News feed late last night. Articles I read on SF Gate and CNN didn’t even say when. And completely agree. Petty feuds seem so important until someone in the feud is gone, and all you’ve won are decades of...

    [2022] Gone But Not Forgotten

    D.H. Peligro (Darren Henley), longest serving drummer of The Dead Kennedys, died today at 63. The Jello-less Kennedys came through SLO twice since I’ve been here, and both times I was too busy with something so important I’ve forgotten it entirely. Damn.

    I’ve finally found clarity. The US Women’s National Team for Worlds will be: Skye Blakely, Jade Carey, Jordan Chiles, Shilese Jones and Leeane Wong with Lexi Zeiss as the traveling replacement. All that blathering before meant nothing. Team was chosen following a selection camp this weekend...

    TV - What's your passion (NON-sports)?

    The Newsroom’s Fukushima episode must have made you want to break a window. The worst EMS offender for me was the short lived show Trauma about medics in San Francisco. Had a helicopter crew flying around the city as if they were just another fleet rig responding to random medicals. The EMT...

    TV - What's your passion (NON-sports)?

    I still cannot watch any emergency medical response shows without wanting to throw a protocol book through the TV.

    TV - What's your passion (NON-sports)?

    Wednesday looks like a Harry Potter fanfic starring Wednesday Addams for no reason and I’m way in for it.

    what was the last movie you watched?

    I’m not sure how invested into Tollywood I’m going to get now. This really was a one off while the fam was gone to see what all the fuss was about. But, I appreciate the roadmap should I venture further into that wilderness. Will admit, the housefly revenge story does pique my interest a bit...

    I legit don’t understand who is on the US National team for Worlds. The broadcast cut off before any announcement of the team was made, and reports were it wouldn’t be finalized until later anyway. Yet the USA Gymnastics website lists the team as the expected: Carey, Jones, DiCello, Chiles...
