UGA Gymnastics Begin Tonight

The UGA Gym Dogs will take on West Virginia tonight at 7:30 at Stegeman Coliseum, and I will be attending. The Gym Dogs are looking for their fifth straight (!) national title. Unfortunately, they will be doing so without Courtney McCool, who will be out for at least seven meets with a broken bone in her foot. Either way, it should be an exciting season. Hope I see you there!

UPDATE: Uh, yeah, so LP & I just got back from the Gym Dogs meet...and we didn't look very good. For a gymnastics team, yes, we looked above average. For the Gym Dogs, though, there were some evident problems. I don't think it was coaching or anything, just a few of the Gym Dogs totally dropped the ball tonight. So to speak. Abby Stack completely missed the higher of the uneven bars and ate the mat. That was the low point of the evening, but the floor exercises almost matched it. The only thing that would have made it worse would be if some rabid West Virginians had dragged a sofa out onto the mat and set it on fire. Not good.

Hopefully, things will look better at the next meet. Tonight, we looked as if we were playing "on the level" with West Virginia. The final score - 195.425 - was the lowest I've ever seen.
