    Peacock Subscription Discount

    Peacock seems to be only broadcasting gymnastics finals live - they are not making the recordings available after the event. I cannot find the women's team final on the site.

    U.S. Women [#4]: How Dare You

    I think "Skating Clean" is a way better title for this thread. But it's a good one for all the skaters who are out there this season.

    Royalty thread #14: Platinum edition

    Ominous indeed. The worst part is that the BBC has wheeled out the unctuous royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell, who's saying stuff like "We shouldn't speculate" about the Queen's health...while going on to speculate at length.

    "Go Figure" Randy Gardner Documentary on PBS in February 2022

    I watched the documentary on the PBS app. It's wonderful. I didn't know anything about Randy and Tai other than the story of the injury at the 1980 Olympics. I had to stop in the middle, too. His meeting with his birth mother is filled with sadness and incredibly sweet at the same time...

    NCAA Gymnastics

    U.S. Women [#2]: The Unbearable Lightness of Beijing

    Disappointing news for the new year. Tennell's US Nationals win in 2021 was a fierce comeback. Good for her for making space in her life to heal and improve.

    Should The Minimum Age That Ladies Can Compete As Seniors In Singles Be Raised From 15 To 17/18 Years Of Age?

    If you're looking at 1998, we might have seen Chen Lu, Maria Butyrskaya, or a healthy Surya Bonaly make a run at the top of the podium. Or look at the other 1990s women who were in the mix. No need to slam Kwiatkowski.
