    Gymnasts fall to #14 Stanford

    I just got back from the gymnastics meet. For the most part, we performed very well (and MUCH improved from our last home meet) but there were a few too many stumbles to outscore Stanford. We're winless so far, but can take consolation in two things: 1) every single team that we compete against is nationally ranked, usually in the top 5 or 7, and 2) Iowa is coming. We pulverize the GymHawks (oh, how original- I'm sure you'll tell me that Georgia copied Iowa, not the other way around) on a twice-annual basis. Our coaching staff seems to really connect with the athletes, and the scores are improving fairly quickly. Hopefully we'll be back in the Super Six within a year or two!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Glad to hear about the improvement. I'd like to make it to a meet sometime in the future!

    How much are tickets normally? We got in free with our tickets from last night.

    I'm not a student so I paid the normal ticket price and it was $7. My daughter is in the Lil Clone Club so she gets in free.

    Re: Gymnasts fall to #14 Stanford

    Tickets are even cheaper than women's basketball. I think adult is $7, students are $3 or $5, Cy's Pass gets you in free, Lil Clone gets you in free. Meets are a great time, and good for little kids (esp. girls). Today there were 47 (yes, that's correct) Girl Scout troops in attendance, [i]all[i] of whom got a free pink Cyclone Alley shirt (left over from yesterday) and went over to get their programs autographed by the team after the meet.

    Even you hardcore football-basketball-or-nothing guys should go to a meet, if only to check out the beginning of their intro video: it's basically a knockoff of a National Weather Service disaster announcement, and is nothing short of BA. You all need to go see it, and then go home and email Pollard to say "OMG you have to put that in the football intro next fall!"
