Last night Ali Reisman, Jordyn Wieber, and McKayla Maroney sat in the stands to cheer on Gabby Douglas in the Women’s Uneven Bars Final. They all had their hair uncharacteristically slicked back with gel and pins and folded into buns in Gabby’s characteristic but recently-criticized style. Were they sending a message?
In celebration of one of the standout stars of the London Olympics, McKayla Maroney. Maroneys (fans of McKayla Maroney, that’s what we call ourselves) unite!

Like, every single one. Including Obama, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.
