The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Get. Ready.

As always, the start of the season has snuck up on us, and it’s now only four days away.  Here’s a look at what’s happening this weekend so you can plan accordingly:

  • Friday: The season begins, and I will be live blogging the broadcast of Florida @ NC State at 7 ET / 4 PT.  Special attention will be paid to Florida’s preparation schedule.  I don’t need to see a 197 this week.  I’ll also be following the scores of Denver @ Georgia and making completely unfounded comments about Shayla’s performance level.  
  • Saturday: Oklahoma has a quad meet away that they should win easily.  Note who is making lineups right now and how they are attempting to compensate for Natasha Kelley.
  • Sunday: I’ll be back to live blog Utah @ UCLA at 5 ET / 2 PT.  This should be the closest and most interesting meet of the weekend.  How are Mattie and Vanessa coming along?  Does Utah have enough star performances to contend?  Is Tiffany Hyland going to get all the water bottles in time?
