2008 Tour of Gymnastics Superstars

The 2008 Tour of Gymnastics Superstars was held at the Toyota Center, Friday, October 10th. Anthony, Owen and I had a great time watching our athletes put on such a fun-filled show! The pressure was off…the athletes were on…and the crowd was pumped up. The event featured All Around gold medalist Nastia Liukin and Balance Beam gold medalist Shawn Johnson, and 2004’s All Around gold medal winner, Paul Hamm. Houstonians, Raj Bhavsar and Jonathon Horton, also performed.

We all agreed that the ladies’ attire was lacking material and definitely looked more “grown up” with a splash from the 80’s. Overall they were graceful in style, while the guys had more of an edgy feel to their performance. It was a great mix!

Owen and I were basically running around like the paparazzi because we both love to document life’s moments via the lens. At first, we were up-close, taking snap shots of the gymnasts. However, when Shawn Johnson came down to the floor to sign a few autographs, we almost got ran over by hoards of adoring fans. Anyway, Owen beat me photographically by taking 738 more pictures that I did. He recently got a new camera…that should explain it. As for Yanez and I…well we were laughing every other 4 minutes; either about Owen acting crazy… or at one of Jen’s “throw Yanez under the bus” lines (an ongoing joke we say on-air) or…some random antic. Take for example, when we all walked to the ladies bathroom to see if Laura Wilkinson, renowned diver, had walked that way. Sure enough as she walked out, we caught her attention and chatted a little.
