Are you feeling old?

I know I am.

The Fab 5 when I was Youngin were everything. They were a cultural phenomenon that goes well beyond the fact that they never won a championship.

Jalen Rose didn’t like the fact the US Gymnast were using their nickname, I thought they could have come up with something better and they did.

Credit McKayla Maroney, Jordyn Wieber and Google for coming up with the “Fierce Five” nickname for the U.S. women’s gymnastics team.

A few days before helping the team win gold on July 31, Maroney and Wieber decided to think of something better than “Fab Five” while on the bus to a training session.

I guess (Fab Five) was taken by some basketball team or something,” Maroney said.
