Please let us be on this team. Simone Biles’ USA teammate Aly Raisman posted a hilarious Instagram on Aug. 22 of the gymnastics champions flying back home from Rio, and in the caption she mocks Simone for falling asleep so quickly on the plane. Check it out!
Sleeping beauty! Aly Raisman, 22, and Simone Biles, 19, just swept the Rio Olympics, and now it’s time to relax. Well, not so fast — the second Simone fell asleep on the flight home, Aly snapped a pic and gleefully posted it on Instagram! “Miss @simonebiles fell asleep before we took off. WHO’S THE GRANDMA NOW GUYS?” she captioned the snap of an oblivious Simone. Priceless.
In case you’re not up to speed, Aly is playfully getting back at Simone, who along with the rest of the team, has poked constant fun at her for sleeping. “All the girls call me ‘Grandma’ or they call me ‘Mom’ because they all think that I sleep too much,” Aly has said.

“She’s like our sleeping little grandma,” Simone has also said about Aly. “She’ll text me at 9:30, ‘Simone be quiet’ because she can hear us through the walls. And she always blames it on me. And I’ll be like ‘Okay grandma, go to bed.’…We always joke about it.” Ah, how the tables have turned!
“It’s normal to be tired when you work out a lot,” Aly has said in her defense. “But [Simone] is just never tired, I don’t understand.” Clearly, the lack of ZZZs caught up with the four-time gold medalist! You deserve it, Simone.
HollywoodLifers, do you think it’s funny that Aly got Simone back for always calling her a grandma?
