So I knew nothing about this Olympiad's US Women's Gymnastics team. I don't know how I got so out of touch. I mean, being from Massachusetts I heard a bit about Alicia Sacramone, but I couldn't really match faces to names. For some reason, during the prelims, I decided that I was a Nastia Liukin fan. I don't even know why. Just decided I liked her style, she did NOT seem like a drama queen at all, seemed genuine in her friendships with her teammates, and was a tremendous athlete. Oh, and knew how to take a fall and get right back up and shake it off. WHAT A WOMAN!
Naturally last night, I was rooting like crazay for "Nas" and it sooo paid off. She rocked. Thus continues my mad mad Olympic love. Sigh. If only synchro were primetime!!
