He'll be missed. I'm not a fan of his skating but I admire his work ethic and consistency.

No nationals means no Worlds?

So has he officially retired yet?

No surprise. It would be shocking if he ever competes again. It is best to retire on top and he certainly wouldnt be a contender in Sochi with the higher grades given to quads, with Chan and the Japanese men, and close to 30.

I was googling US nationals and I saw that 105 news outlets ran the AP story! Wasn't expecting it to be treated like news as it has been obvious for months and months.

Eh, expected cluelessness. Some in the "legitimate" sports media here likely still believe that Michelle Kwan is training for Sochi.

I didn't realize his possibly competing at Nats was even a consideration at this point!

He's skating in the exhibition at Nationals though. Has a non-Nationals competitor ever skated in the Nationals Exhibition? I think it's cool they're having him do that.

Really? That's strange considering the exhibiition is to highlight and celebrate this year's champions, were Kristi or Brian invited to skate at the exhibition the year after they won Olympic gold?

I'm surprised by this too. Wasn't there a hassle when Michelle & Todd wanted to skate exhibition programs at Skate America in 1998 (I guess Speedy got in the way of that one)?

Not at all surprising, but I'll miss him anyhow.
