Woman Demonstrates Fine Art Of Extreme Hula Hooping

I’m going to go out on a limb here and venture to say that Masha Terentieva is a better hula hooper than you. And me. And pretty much everyone else on the planet. Apparently, Terentieva is an aerial hoop artist and circus performer who grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia, and attended the… More »


Girl Talk: I Was A College Gymnast

For fans of NCAA basketball, March Madness is the culmination of the collegiate sport year. But for me, a former gymnast—mediocre in skill, but a gold medalist in mania—April is what I live for.

Sigh,… More »

I’m more than a little into watching the Olympics. In fact, I made my friends rush through dinner earlier in the week so I could run home and catch the women’s gymnastics team finals. Last night, the women’s individual all-around competition aired, and I wasn’t able to watch them live. This really ruined my otherwise… More »


The Daily Hotness: Chris Brown

On American Idol this week, David Archuleta sang Chris Brown’s “With You.” David sucked, but because he swayed back and forth without speck of dancing ability, he reminded me just how great Chris Brown is. (No, I am not saying this simply because I think Rihanna is fabulous and the two of them are clearlyMore »
