Here's more of the exchange between Richard Guy and JButt on Sasha's practice:


@J_Butt: lori was getting really angry...the girl is so ADD...but surprisingly really nice!

Maybe the debate over Sasha's psychology (is it choking, is it willfullness in her preparation?) - has been solved!

Who is Richard Guy?

Other than he has some connection to US Figure skating I don't know. He seems to be friends with Jeff Buttle and with Patrick Chan. He's a bit bitchy, hence his tweeting those remarks about Sasha (which you'd think would be bad form for somebody connected to her team).

I mean, as a skating fan, I can't help finding the tweets re Sasha interesting and entertaining. But at the same time, they seem more appropriate for text messages.

My goodness. It looks like Ben shaved. I think it makes him look younger.

Agreed. I think slamming people over Twitter (even if its not intended to be so harsh) is really bad form. It's my hope that the USFS has told these skaters at Champs Camp that Twitter, Facebook, etc. really are public even if you don't want it to be, so don't say anything you don't want others to know, including the people you're talking about.

Nothing we didn't already know about Sasha. Don't we all remember John Nicks saying, "She'll look me right in the eye when I'm instructing her, and then go out on the ice and do her own thing." LOL

Yeah, but now we have a new theory as to why! :D
