    Kids may have more mild effects but they can spread it for sure. In many places they aren't requiring masks or other distancing measures but also aren't offering a virtual component. Parents don't really get much of a choice there. I'm definitely having empathy issues at the moment. I'm...

    Dropping in to vent... Hospitals all over are swimming in ********* and overflowing with patients due to lack of nursing and support staff causing patients to hold in the ED for hours/days waiting for a bed upstairs. We've been running a solid 6-9+ hour wait for less emergent stuff and seeing...

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games - Day Four (27 July)

    I think it's more her racing persona? There was a fluff on her at trials about her student teaching as a PE teacher in an elementary school. She came across as much more likable there.

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    I'm sure he's disappointed for her but they've had a month to process that. Doesn't mean that disappointment isn't still there but if I'm trying to show that I've grown as a person after the post-Rio selection social media shenanigans and aren't the villain I've been made out to be there's no...

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    But I thought she'd changed?? I hope so badly that Simone is well enough to compete VT finals because I disliked Skinner before but now.... I don't feel bad saying she's just trash. Poor form, poor attitude, obnoxious family/fans.

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    I'm sure they'll be vocal but fact of the matter is this is why I would've picked this team. It might not be why Tom picked it but that's a different conversation. In the event of injury with a 4 person team, you've gotta have a built in back-up plan and flexibility. Having Grace there and...

    Does Jordan have grips on? Simone may not do bars. Or am I not awake yet?

    Oh boy……. Not sure the US can come back from this hole. Biles seems to be talking to team physician for a bit. Soooo much tension in the US huddle.

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    And this isn’t the first time Tom has been clueless on things like the competition, scoring, etc. He’s incompetent and IMO it’ll be hard to hide when Simone retires. I’m no expert but at times I feel like I could do certain aspects of his job better and there are definitely more knowledgeable...

    Gymnastic news #22 - Tokyo or bust

    Why why why would USAG name extra alternates (a replacement team) because of ********* but then not have the 2 groups separate from each other?! Oh there's no confusion! She's was pretty clear her scientist parents didn't want her vaccinated. If she's rooming with Eaker who is now positive and...

    Gymnastic news #22 - Tokyo or bust

    Post-Tokyo will be interesting. Simone will make Tom look competent by likely leading the team to gold and picking up lots of hardware for herself. But after that? Who knows what kind of depth and success they'll have with retirements and athletes moving on to NCAA careers. The juniors have...

    Gymnastic news #22 - Tokyo or bust

    Interesting that Skinner gets a +1 but she’s gotta beat Biles/Carey to make EF so it seems like a waste of a spot IMO. Just glad she isn’t on the team and thrilled for Grace after coming back from injury. I guess Tom went with the covering all the bases pick as opposed to someone that would...

    DiCello and Wong have been pretty reliable on VT/FX though and that's where they'd be called upon in TF's.
