    Gymnastics News #21 - Tumbling on to Tokyo

    Yep. Here’s s short clip of it. :) Apparently, the positive interactions between Simone and Morgan at 2018 Worlds were a huge deal because they didn’t get along earlier last year.

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    If Weld didn’t even have the political chops to beat Gary Johnson to head the Libertarian ticket in 2016, he’s not going to hack it here, either. Nope - although I really like Larry Hogan’s job as Maryland’s Governor so far. I don’t think he is a national enough figure to be able to adequately...

    DRAMA!!!! The Schipperke has been allowed in the arena. He’s allowed to do a “lap of honor” with the other group winners before being excused out. Crowd got a tad rowdy. But there is an owner’s conflict of interest with the Best in Show Judge Green’s family.

    Working Group I only really liked the Boxer and the Samoyed in this group. Most of the other breeds look exhausting to me. Great Danes make me a tad sad to look at. I think they have the highest rate of heart issues and the shortest average life span of any dog breed. :( The Saint Bernard was...

    Sporting Group This is the best group, BTW. :) Quite a few dogs from Canada in this group! The Gordon Setter winner was the #1 winning dog in 2018 in Canada! The spaniels were gorgeous! Especially the Black Cocker, American Water, and Sussex. The Sussex Spaniel “Bean” won Sporting last year...

    UPDATE: It was announced that the Schipperke has been ruled ineligible to compete in Best in Show due to ownership conflicts. There will only be six groups for Best in Show tonight.

    Gymnastics News #21 - Tumbling on to Tokyo

    Adding to what I posted above, here’s a link to a chart of the maximum scholarships allowed at each NCAA Division I school per sport for men and women. Because football has so many scholarships and schools have to make up the match to total #s offered to women, the number of scholarships...

    Gymnastics News #21 - Tumbling on to Tokyo

    Colleges aren’t going to add any sports to their athletic programs if they aren’t going to break even. The only reason why a lot of women’s sports have survived is Title IX and that schools have to match #s of scholarships and $$$ spent. Other than football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and (I...

    Herding Group Border Collie: “Slick” won the Herding Group last year. He was FANTASTIC! The German Shepherd looked a bit too distracted. I didn’t know there was an Icelandic Sheepdog. Gorgeous. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi licked the judge’s nose. :lol: THE PULI’S BEING A DIVA!!!!! Winner...

    Non Sporting Group The French Bulldog was gorgeous! His coat looked like velvet. And was such a showman! Why is the Tibetan terrier in this group and not in the Terrier group? Winner: Schipperke 2nd Place: French Bulldog WAS ROBBED!!! 3rd Place: Chow 4th Place: Standard Poodle

    They said that Canada has already had the most number of breed winners from outside the U.S. EVER - 8 so far!!! WHY aren’t any of the agility competitions being shown LIVE during prime time!? It’s like they don’t want MORE ratings! :soapbox:

    Toy Group I’m just going to say it: There should be a regulation against how poodles are groomed for these dog shows. Abomination! The Havanese was GORGEOUS and had so much style. My cat is sitting on the couch and he rolled his eyes at the Pekingese. The Pug here was the Toy Group winner...

    Hound Group The basset hound looked like he had no business winning his breed. His body looked a bit.....off. The 13 inch beagle outperformed the 15 inch beagle - by a bit. Just sayin’! The Plott was great but deserved a better handler. Coaching change! The Longhaired Dachshunds, Treeing...
