Round 'Em up, Boys: MAG Tidbits from Worlds - October 22, 2015

Here's what happened today…

1. In the next episode of "Chalk Divas," the U.S. took over 10 minutes to chalk the p-bars during podium training.

In that amount of time, you could have intercourse – twice (if you're the average Joe or Jane).

Needless to say, the Americans didn't have much time to actually get on the p-bars.

And we wonder why Sam Mikulak had overtime problems at Worlds last year………

Round 'Em up, Boys: MAG Tidbits from 2015 Worlds – October 21, 2015

Round 'Em up, Boys: 2015 Worlds Tidbits – October 20, 2015

Let's skip the 80s intro. Here are some tidbits on the men's side from Worlds…

Marcel Nguyen has a left middle finger injury. Andreas Bretschneider has a finger injury.

2. Check out this article on the Dutch gymnasts with eponymous skills. On the men's side, you have the Zonderland on parallel bars and the van Gelder on rings. For the WAG fans out there, they also mention the Wevers.

3. A breakdown of potential D-scores for Kohei Uchimura. The blog predicts around a 39.4 – provided that Kohei performs his Li Xiaopeng on vault.

Round 'Em up, Boys: Articles, Videos, and other Tidbits from 2015 Worlds - October 19, 2015

When it comes to the World Championships, the gymternet blows up. Sign onto Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, or Instagram, and you'll find doctoral dissertations analyzing a single photo and what it means for team lineups.

On the men's side, though, it's much harder to find information. You gotta go looking for it, and in many cases, you need Google translate to find the good stuff.

So, I thought that I'd round up everything that I've been reading and watching and put them into blogs during Worlds. Here's what I came across today…
