Forget “Patterbot”

July 27, 2008

Carly Patterson is so full of crap I think her new nickname should be just that.  Carly “So full of crap” Patterson.  In this article she talks about “not becoming the next Mary Lou.”  

It’s hard to compare people 20 years apart,” she said. “We were doing such harder skills, harder tricks. Maybe it was easier to smile when the tricks weren’t as hard.

Shawn Johnson has hard tricks out the wazoo yet some people are annoyed that she smiles so much.  “Ugh”, they say, “Look at that cheesy grin!”  No joke.  Shawn is too chipper for some of the scrooges out there.  I’m not saying I’m not one of those scrooges.  I’m just saying that smiling and big tricks don’t necessarily cancel each other out.
