McKayla Is Not Impressed

The Cardinals won the 2011 World Series and sit at 10 games above the .500 mark, but Olympic Gold Medalist McKayla Maroney is not the least bit impressed.  The “McKayla is not impressed” meme was started shortly after Maroney showed a visible sign of annoyance/displeasure at the XXX Olympics in London.  Since most people expect gymnasts to put on a brave and/or happy face even after falling 12 feet to a mat or having their dreams crushed by a “balance check”, Maroney’s reaction tends to stand out for its sheer candidness.  Since I see no reason to shy away from this meme, I’ve simply taken it and customized it for Cardinal Nation.

Greene traded?

It seems that maybe McKayla is a bit of a Tyler Greene fan and was not thrilled with the news that he had been traded to Houston for a player to be named later or cash considerations.


It seems that McKayla is most definitely not a Cubs fan.

Et tu, mang?

Albert Pujols to the Angels?  She doesn’t seem impressed by this at all.

McKayla is not impressed with the Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises seems to be quite popular with the young crowd these days, but Maroney doesn’t appear to be the least bit impressed by any of it.

Seeker? That’s it?

You may be the youngest seeker in a century Harry Potter, but catching a snitch in your mouth won’t be enough to impressed an Olympic Gold Medalist.  Sorry, but maybe it’s the scar.

Cardinals fan since I could hold a fishing pole steady. Accidental blogger. Opinionated. I could care less about what you think of me. Constantly confounded, bemused, and confuzzled (ie I'm a pc and a mac). I'm an IT infrastructure analyst with a penchant for breaking tech toys. I ate a sabermetric primer for breakfast. I love playing "All-powerful GM of MLB". The 2010 Cardinals represented a good, practical definition "cognitive dissonance". The 2011 version got by on duct tape and a prayer, and I'm fine with that. They just need new tape for #12 in 12.
