wow at Nancy having more jump content than Sarah. On the other hand, to Sarah's credit, her split falling leaf is still better than a lot of today's ladies...and her toe point on her spirals is first rate.

Yes, I was :eek: to see Nancy do a 2A.


"the most delicious sport of all"
:rofl: yes, another classic Dick-ism. (of course, I happen to agree ;))

Debi Thomas sure gave Denise Biellmann a run for her money with that bra + skirt outfit!

This has been a well put together show, nice group for a Christmas Day show when lots of non-fans might be watching with their families. Good marketing for a post-Olympic year, especially when USFSA is hoping to draw a large audience to RISE in February.

Tons of skating treats in this show:

Debi Thomas
Paul & Nancy skating together
Richard Dwyer with Tai, Tenley, Jojo and Linda Fratianne
Richard Dwyer and Brian Boitano duet

There's still a half hour left, but if it re-airs I highly recommend it - a little light on the skating and a little different than the usual skating show - but rich with history and worth the time.

I'm sorry for what they "chacked"; yet, I'm grateful for how much they are showing.

I know that can't have everyone, but where on earth was Michelle Kwan? How can they even consider to do a show like this without her? She epitomizes being the American champion.

And how about Ben Agosto & Tanith Belbin?

They pretty well hit most of the past folks and it was wonderful for me to see Paul Wylie & Brian Boitano skate. I so miss their skating. Loved seeing Paul & Nancy's "Miss Saigon" pairs program again. She always looks (and looked) so happy when she skates with him.
