    Oh my gosh you guys so I just fell down the rabbit hole on tiktok known as thepatriotsisters and Skolife2018 and I don’t even know what to say. I am convinced that thepatriotsisters have to be satire.

    Well 2020 has taken Chadwick Boseman. I’m out. I’m napping for the rest of the year. I honestly feel that’s the best use of the next few months.

    ETA: Sometimes I wonder with everything going on this year if it wasn’t a blessing in disguise that my mom passed in 2019. I mean obviously I’m sad she’s gone, but had she bounced back from the bout of chemo that killed her, I don’t even think she would’ve survived this year. And even if she had, I’m not sure she would want to see what’s happening. Not because of one lone actor’s death, but just because of like, you know, the world.

    Are the 2020 UCA HS stunt/pyr progression sheets online anywhere?

    I thought about that, but the skill is listed under the roll/flip section. So unless they do a double-braced flip and somehow add a twist, I’m not sure what else it could be. But I have no clue how you’d add a twist with two connected hands/arms.

    Does it have to be hand to hand? I feel like I have seen one hand, one hip connection flipping fulls? Maybe I'm imagining it.

    It doesn’t have to be hand-to-hand or double-braced necessarily, but I feel like that’s the only way to get enough leverage with HS kids.

    The only thing I can think of that makes sense is like a reverse Baja? But I think as far as HS goes we’ll see it attempted in a pyramid scenario with lots of disposable bracers available. Assuming we see it attempted at all. It might be one of those skills that’s just too ugly and time consumptive to try despite being points-heavy.

    Does anyone have any recommendations of books on coaching and like the psychology of coaching? Can be focused on any sport really!

    We really need to talk more guys. I literally don’t read the news anymore after RBG. Also Big Brother is racist again and Twitter is a horror show. So whatever you got — new dog sweater, new cavities, whatever — I’m here to react to it.

    Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy won their first acting Emmy awards tonight, does that count? (Their first wins were for writing in 1982. Eugene won again in 1983; the same year his son was born.)

    OH I DID SEE THAT. It was a Schitt’s Creek clean sweep almost. Good for them. O’Hara is way overdue. She should’ve won all the awards for Orange County.

    Ive recommended “Cheer!” by Kate Torgovnick on here before. It’s not about coaching per se, but there is stuff in there on cheer strategy from top college coaches.

    As for actual coaching books, there’s “Coaching Cheerleading Successfully” by Linda Rae Chappell.

    They swept all the categories tonight, at least. And is the first show ever to sweep all 4 acting categories.
    Catherine should've been nominated for the show ages ago, if only for the episode with the "fold in the cheese" bit, or the one that features her laughing manically without opening her mouth.
