I find this info to be an interesting tid-bit because I am always fascinated with the idea of looking at things in a different way!

Thrilled with Gabby's "flying squirrel" nickname? Not so much. The media always finds a way to compare black athletes to animals. Nuts to them!

First name unscrambled "Baby G"

The media did not make up Gabby's name. Indeed I read somewhere, early on that she liked the name. If you saw her on uneven parallel bars the name fits :lol: I saw her compete earlier in the year -- amazing. Indeed all the women were.

Now if they called her the "flying monkey" I would have an issue with that -- whether she liked the name or not :)

LOL. Well, OK. I went out and looked at some of the squirrels scrambling around my neighborhood, and they weren't very good in their dismounts and many of them had gray fur but - - if Gabby likes it, I luv it. I'm also lovin that "Baby G" thing.

I'm just hoping the black stallions on the USA relay track team don't drop the damned baton this year!
