If Tim Daggett shouts "Gymnastics 101!" One more time, I'm going to dismantle one of the uneven bars and smack him in the face with it.


I can't be the only one who has heard enough of that from him....who's with me?

I'm with you. Gymnastics 101 is a far cry from anything that the best women gymnasts in the world are doing this week in Rio.

I sure wish there was a "Al/Tim mute" button somewhere I could use. The commentators on the live feed are so much better.

I absolutely agree. That is why I prefer the live streaming. And I feel as though I have heard "And this is GYMNASTICS 101, folks!" more times than necessary...

NBC gymnastics drinking game:

take a shot of tequila/rum/vodka/root beer (for the underaged)/etc. whenever one of the commentators does any of the following:

says "gymnastics 101"
uses the word "helicopter"
uses the word "destiny"
refers to Simone's parents as "grandparents"
explains the green/yellow/red scoring system

Fell free to add to the list....

Anytime they ask Nastia if she wishes she was still out there, or what she'd do in that situation, or how she thinks they feel in that situation, or how she remembers feeling when she was in that situation.

I'm just glad we don't constantly hear talk about her dad this time around...

Okay, not for the list. This is actually a good quote from Tim:
"Most moms can't watch their girls on balance beam, whether its level 3 or elite."

We have certainly found this to be true!
