Here is the story to go with: (sorry it’s long winded!) *also edit as you would like just credit back to me, thanks a bunch!* ***edited to add that Misha IS standing on his left leg and leaning down onto Jensen, I would never make Jensen try to pick Misha up in that manner ever…carry on!***
So at the end of Misha’s m&g I showed him the “let me be your wings” photo and asked if that would be feasible to do in the Misha/Jensen op. He laughed and said “yeah, oh yeah” and was nodding. After though, I was like “well was that Misha being Misha or was he really saying yes??” So I figured I would just ask at the time of the op and if they say no then cool, I’ll get a squeeze, no biggy.
So the time came to get the op and the guys were in a great mood, joking around and just all around cheery. So I walk up to Misha and point to the pic on my shirt and ask him if we can do it and he says “oh yes. Yeah totally,” so we turn to Jensen and Misha goes “we’re gonna do this” and Jensen just busts up laughing and walks away. When he comes back over he goes (still laughing) “Ahhh No.” So at that point I was ready to do my squish hug, but Misha pops his head over my shoulder and says “No no we can do it! Let’s do it!”
After that Jensen calls Chris over to us and says “So she says to me (while pointing at the shirt) we can do this right?” and Chris was just so puzzled. One of the handlers came over and is waving her hands and going NoNoNo. So I told Jensen we can make it work and we ended up arguing for a little while over how it could/could not work and Misha piped in and was like “no we can do this, we’re gonna do, let’s go”.
So we get into position and the first attempt Misha starts to fall over into the back screen and naturally we all start laughing so we try again and I shove my hand against Misha’s shoulder to help hold him up and look to the camera and the pic was taken. Misha was laughing and getting back up so I turn to Jensen and I told him “thank you so much I really appreciate it.” He thanked me and then I left. It was the most amazing experience and I can’t thank either of them enough for allowing me to get the op I really wanted.
On July 18, 1976; in Montreal, Romanian athlete Nadia Comaneci became the first gymnast in Olympic history to be awarded the perfect score of 10.0 for her performance on the uneven bars. It was the first time in modern Olympic gymnastics history that the score had ever been awarded. When Omega SA, the traditional Olympics scoreboard manufacturer, asked before the 1976 games whether four digits would be necessary for gymnastics, it was told that a perfect 10.00 was not possible. Nadia’s perfect marks were thus displayed as 1.00 instead. The crowd was at first confused, but soon understood and gave her a rousing ovation. She went on to record the perfect 10.0 six more times and became the youngest all-around Olympic gold medallist ever.
