    Will we be seeing all around or individual events? Will all the apparati be in use at the same time? Should I ignore my four years of high school Latin and call them apparatuses?
    The only event I've gone to in person was the prior championship in Hartford. The start lists were really useful since it otherwise is hard to follow what's going on with all the events going on at one time. It's amazing how much activity is happening at once. You're likely to miss something, but don't feel bad, it's inevtiable and you'll be watching something else interesting anyway.

    It's sort of confusing because all the apparatus take different times. So while they may start at the same time, vault will likely end while they're still on the third person on the floor exercise. We had a couple of favorite gymnasts or people we knew were good on a particular event and I'd be responsible for the floor exercise and call out when a favorite was starting, and my friend would watch rings and let us know when Levya would be up on that event.

    The activity around the event is fun, as is seeing other gymnasts at the table and in the stand. You'll have a great time! It's also cool when they all march out at the beginning!

    Sadly they were smart enough to make small talk. Nothing that I could make out as news.

    Making my way through the junior videos from today. There is so much talent coming up! Bailie Key, Norah Flatley, and Veronica Hults are awesome on beam. There's also a lot of great performances on floor. Can't wait to see these girls in the senior ranks.

    Well, there goes all the excitement to the meet. mcKayla has made lots of progress on bars this year at least, still a bit spastic with her swing but from what we saw i think a hit routine could go mid-14.

    catching up on jrs I loved Norah Flatley at classics.

    McKayla's beam was the big reason she probably wouldnt have beaten Ross or Biles in the AA even if they fell though. Her bars has made some progress, but her beam now has to do the same.

    Yes.....glad to see Nastia commentating. I wish Al Trautwig would retire.

    USAG is uploading some routines from tonight to their YouTube channel - I don't know if they are only the ones not making the broadcast - can anyone confirm? Here is Milliet on beam.

    NBCSN showed Milliet on beam, so USAG must be uploading all of them to their YouTube channel.

    I've watched a few routines and oh my the E scores are high. I thought Ross was over scored by nearly a point on floor.

    Darn, only managed to turn into the online broadcast now. Wonder if NBC Sports LiveExtra will archive (lucky my aunt is visiting from the States and logged in for me).

    Ugh, I just don't like Biles' gymnastics. I suppose it's preferable to say, Skinner's, but still ugly imo.

    Is it just me, or, on Planet Al Trautwig, did the vault finals somehow happen before the team finals.

    Once again Skinner gets no love from the judges on vault.

    http://youtu.be/p8yy4__3JhY

    It's very flat, twists too early (which is only .1 now - had been up to .5 in 2008) and is a little piked down, but I find it very harshly scored compared to all the DTY that scored above 9.0.

    It sucks that Ernst fell on beam. She's my favorite new American senior.
