Yes, the Couch Gymnast is ecstatic, and yes of course it is because of the UCLA Bruins taking out the Pac-10 Championships against Stanford, Oregon and myriad others (well, seven.  Yes, I can do basic math)! 
 That, my friends, makes me happy happy happy!
Also, I can't decide what makes me happier, aside from the team win, that,
1. They did it by kicking some college butt on beam. 

The beam hasn't necessarily been a strong point for them this year.  or,
2. That it was wonderful to see that, while Stanford fell back in the standings because of freshman falters on floor (having to count one of two falls) it was UCLA's babies like Zamarripa, whom Kondos-Field made the big-time claim of calling her "the most talented athlete UCLA has ever had." (wow, big call), Hopfner-Hibbs and  Aisha Gerber who were whooping butt all over the plank.
Also, Anna Li took a part in an impressively even-handed five-way uneven bars win taking UCLA's only individual title.
And to put the icing on The Couch Gymnasts happy cake, her favorite shorty, Elyse Hopfner-Hibbs took out the Pac-10 Freshman of the year award!
