Shawn Johnson … a rumor, and only a rumor

Word from Des Moines says there’s a buzz that Shawn Johnson might compete as a diver for the West Des Moines Valley girls’ swim team.

This is strictly hearsay. A rumor. But interesting, huh? Many of the top divers in Iowa come from gymnastics backgrounds.

Can you imagine the size of the crowd at Marshalltown on a Friday night in November if Johnson would qualify for state? Would Bela Karolyi stew and stammer at the judges’ scores? And would anyone understand him?
