CGA Level 5 State Competition.

Ah the season finale took place yesterday in loverly Lima, Ohio.

The girls did well, and ended up with second place.  The judging was overly harsh at this competition for some reason, or so it seemed.

There is usually some variance in the scores from meet to meet, and certainly this one was no exception. 

We are so very proud of Molly.  This was the first meet that she wasn’t nervous.  She worked her butt off since the last meet and she was absolutely 100% ready.  We are so proud of her work ethic, and her attitude.  We know she gave a 100% at this meet.   She didn’t score real well, but that’s OK.  I think she got hosed on her floor and beam routing.  They were as good as I’ve seen her do, yet the scores weren’t there.  Molly wasn’t alone in this category.   A lot of girls simply didn’t get the scores they should have.  selavi

Photos that I took during the meet have been published in the Picasa Web Gallery.

They aren’t my ‘best work’, the lighting in that gym was probably the worst we’ve seen, and I had a setting on my camera enabled that shouldn’t have been.


From CGA Level 5 S…

Bengals, Oh my…

Bengals finish 8-8, right where they belong.

Is Ratliff the absolute worst kick returner in the NFL? I think he might be.

Marvin will say “We didn’t take care of business, or we didn’t play hard enough”. I think we got all we could get with what we have.

We’ll be paying close attention to what happens in the off-season. The Bengals need a few less thugs, a few more players with heart and attitude and perhaps a kicker.


Even more ironic, is the fact that KC won and the Niners upset Denver, the two things the Bungles needed to make the playoffs.

Honestly, I’m happy with this outcome.  The Bengals would have only embarrassed us further I think had the squeeked in.  Now they have a the full off-season to plan their moves.
