Nastia Liukin is on the local news here (she's a local girl) and the Chinese gymnast age controversy is BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG news. Nastia was gracious but her dad seemed a little pissed.
They gave Nastia's plane a shower at DFW; they reserve that for huuuuuge celebrations. There was a giant crowd at the airport, mostly little girls. Awwwwwwwwwww. Carly Patterson (the '04 all-around gold medalist) showed up to give her a hug too.
Lemme tell you, Nastia couldn't get arrested for SHIT tonight in Dallas. This city is so proud of her we could just scream.
