McKayla Maroney - The meme issue - Random Wednesday!

Hello all my dear friends! :) I welcome you all to my blog on this fine Wednesday! :D It's 15ht August, The Independence Day of India, my country! :D


So on Monday I was reading this article on Yahoo! news about a meme of a famous sports star going viral on the internet. And today, I thought to share it! LOL! Late? So what, it won't lose the fun associated! haha! :D

McKayla Rose Maroney is an American artistic gymnast who is a member of the gold medal-winning US Women's Gymnastics team at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She is also the 2011 World Vault Champion and 2012 Olympic Vault Silver Medalis. She fell hard during the vault final, ending up getting a silver. Later on the podium when getting her medal, she had a smirk on her face that showed how unimpressed she were. Of course she is a great gymnast and the viewers expected a gold, she herself must've been expecting that and such a mistake would make anyone irritated.

Soon, the moment had become a meme which sees Maroney equally unimpressed with the Mars rover landing, double rainbows, Ryan Lochte and more. I guess this now adds to the collection of thsoe Rage Comics and people would use her meme to show the unimpressed expression. Though a humble request, no offenses for the great sports woman! :)Here are some of the creations of Yahoo Sports and a selection from mckaylaisnotimpressed.tumblr.com

The images are quite funny and I have downloaded a few I found to be the funniest and sharing them here with you all :D






Although these pics are funny, but the good thing is that the sports star is not unhappy with all this. If state from Yahoo! Sports, "McKayla Maroney is showing a sense of humor about the Internet meme that features her smug, indifferent reaction to winning a silver medal on the vault. Her Fierce Five teammate, Aly Raisman, tweeted a picture of Maroney, Kyla Ross and herself standing outside a swimming pool and playfully sneering at the camera with the now-famous expression that launched a thousand Photoshops.

A picture taken of Maroney standing on the medal podium with a similar expression became an Internet sensation in recent days. Users have Photoshopped an unimpressed McKayla into various historical, pop culture and current event scenes. Things that didn't impress McKayla included the moon landing, Mitt Romney's announcement of Paul Ryan as his running mate, the great pyramids of Giza and in the most meta posting of all, her own winning of the silver medal."

This also shows a good side of a sports person. It's good to enjoy the funny things and not to get agitated over them. A round of applause of McKayla! :)
Thanks readers for your time reading this article. Hope to see you all soon again. Take care, and all comments and suggestions are welcomed always! :D
