Not to gloat, but ... THE USA IS BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET IN WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS!!!!

The U.S. women's gymnastics team didn't just win GOLD in the team competition ... they CRUSHED the competition ... slaughtering Russia by a whole 5 points.

Just to compare, China beat the US back in 2008 by 2ish points ... in what was then considered to be a pretty dominant performance. So, 5 points is HUUUUUGE.

It's a big deal ... the team -- made up of Jordyn Wieber, Gabrielle Douglas, Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross, and McKayla Maroney -- was favored to win ... and they didn't disappoint, scoring 183.596 today. Russia came in at 178.5 (suck it).

Romania won bronze.

The last gold medal was won at the Atlanta Games in 1996 -- with the team of Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps ... and of course ... Olympic hero Kerri Strug.



It's a beautiful day for America. Now excuse us while we set off some fireworks, wrap ourselves in the Declaration of Independence, and drive our Chevy into the sunset.

Sociopaths are Sad    

So if you're going to post how the USA "crushed the world", why don't you post about how Jordyn Weiber cried like a little bitch when she failed to qualify for the women's all-around?
*
And not only did she cry like some spoiled 2 year-old, but they are demanding the rules be changed for this one. LOL!! Why should they change the rules for someone whose only reason for not qualifying is that she wasn't good enough?
*
Sorry, Jordyn Weiber, but you don't qualify. The rules won't be changed for you. You're not that good. You didn't even qualify. End of story.

What a disgrace of a journalistic article. I'm sure you are happy and all, and the team earned that victory, no doubt about it, but this piece of hormonal garbage? Is this a war report, in wich the enemy is seeking to destroy the USA?
The person who wrote this "article" should resume to blogging about cats and radical feminism, I'm sure those subjects are at the level of journalistic integrity of the author.

Congratulations to the USA team, a sound victory and a well earned one, without a doubt the best gymnastic team in the world ATM.

Who the hell designed those ugly gray jackets. We can't even be proud to wear red, white, and blue anymore. Don't want to be in your face, so they came up with this ugly sh*t.
