Simone Biles, Aly Raisman and Michael Phelps Going For Gold Tonight

RIO OLympics

 

Big Brother live feeds were gold last night and I was up all night well into the morning watch until I finally fell asleep with my earphones in.  I am kind of regretting that today since I have not been awake all day.

It’s another huge night for Team USA in Rio so I thought I’d put up a fresh discussion forum while I try to come back to life.

 

Responses to emails and other contacts will be delayed while I work out my sleeping schedule.

Happy chatting!

    These women gymnasts just knock my socks off. I can’t even do a cartwheel. Especially with a wine glass.

      Yesterday Leslie Jones did a cartwheel for Bela Karoli. He just laughed and hugged her (it was terrible… but I admire her for doing it!) Her twitter is cracking me up!

    Jill I agree these girls are just fierce. I can’t do a cartwheel with the wine glass but After a few glasses of wine might be the only time I could do a cartwheel.

      Agreed- amazing to watch. After a few glasses of wine, okay a bottle, I think I can do a cartwheel😒.

        The last time I tried gymnastics and drinking, I ended up spiktting my pants. Mama didn’t name me Grace for a reason.

        Now I can drink and swim, softball, basketball, tennis and volleyball but I’m not cut out for gymnastics for sure. I admire from afar.

    Jill and cheychey, WARNING! I tried this a couple years ago (replacing wine for scotch). A cartwheel looks so simple right? and it IS until you can’t walk straight for two days cuz the old legs are not meant to be spread that far while pointing straight up in the air and turning anymore.

    Final Five rules! Simone is a beast….so proud.

      Totally agree! If you live on n the northeast part of the country, you may appreciate this. Simone’s brother said that when Simone returned home, they were going to “celebrate at Wawa.” Lol. My favorite place to go around here!!!

      • Laura

        That was Laurie Hernandez’s brother who said it. Apparently, Laurie loves the sandwiches at Wawa and, honestly, who can blame her? I love everything at Wawa.

      • Erica

        I thought Wawa was their name for their grandmother or something! LOL!!!

    Congrats to Simone Manuel the 1st African American woman to win a individual medal in swimming. She shocked everyone and won the gold, she was not favored to win.So happy for her and she was so humble.

    I don’t get to watch because I don’t have live tv only Hulu”. But at work I was able to watch some women gymnastics and saw the head American in the red outfit. I was amazed. She flew thru the air and was flawless

    Last night during the Ravens game they stopped the game and put Michael Phelps’ race up on the Jumbotron for everyone to watch and the entire stadium went crazy!

    I love gymnastics and was on my school’s gymnastics team from elementary, middle and part of high school until my career ended with a shredded and ripped groin muscle. I wanted to BE Nadia Comaneci or Olga Korbut (I just dated myself lol). I was always just mesmerized by the sport and the team comaraderie. But it was not to be….so now I watch the Olympic team every four years and catch championships whenever they are on ESPN and I am just in awe of these ladies. Totally inspiring. The American team is just amazing and I can’t get enough of watching them! Simone Biles is a little powerhouse as they all are!!! My gosh we were 10 points ahead of the Russians at one point one night I was watching!

    Love the leotards too! Bling is my thing and I love the sparkly leotards! Awesome job USA! #USA #USA #USA <3
