Photos: Remember Alicia Sacramone? You Do Now

Two years after announcing her retirement following the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, American gymnast Alicia Sacramone was back on the beam at the World Gymnastics Championships last week in Rotterdam, Holland.

(*rubs eyes*)
Like so many other Olympians who enjoy the perishable attention that an every-fourth-year worldwide audience provides, Sacramone has lost her insta-celeb status.

So much […]

Brady Quinn Is Dating Gymnast Alicia Sacramone

Brady Quinn’s finally moving up in the world. After throwing for only 3 total touchdowns in his NFL career entering last weekend’s games, the Browns QB burned the Lions’ defense for 4 TD tosses last Sunday. Sure, Cleveland still lost on the final play of the game, but you gotta start somewhere.

Melanie Sinclair Will Store Your Stolen Shotguns

I don’t get it. In my house, I can’t even display a single Pablo Sandoval bobblehead doll without being severely rebuked; and just forget about that Corona Extra neon sign.

Shawn Johnson Video Causes B.S. “Controversy”

We already mentioned it as a throwaway link in yesterday’s Speed Read, because it was a funny parody of the strange treatment of thoroughbreds in the horse racing industry but nothing meriting more than one line in a morning post, but in case you missed it THE ONION put together an obviously, ludicrously fake piece […]

It was actually a man named Douglas Cooper, who will surely now have his own chapter in the […]

My Crazy Days Covering Hottie Georgia Gymnasts

Saw Chandler’s post Monday on the Georgia women’s gymnastics team and it brought back memories. My first foray into sports media was actually covering the team as a student for UGA’s daily RED AND BLACK.

(I also needed chalk - hours later in my locked dorm room)
I remember pining for the gymnastics beat at a […]

Coach Rewards 14-Year-Old Gymnast With Rum

I’m all for positive reinforcement, but this is taking it a bit too far: NEWSDAY reports that a gymnastics coach in Port Jefferson Station, NY, has been fired and arrested after allegedly rewarding one of his students for nailing a difficult maneuver. Which sounds like a good idea, until you release that the “reward” was […]
