Reposting from the US Men's thread in the Trash Can:

Unbelievable! Just saw pictures that were posted on Twitter of the 2012 USFSA calendar. Dornbush is listed in the calendar as the 2011 U.S. champion and Miner is listed as the 2011 U.S. Silver medalist. Wonder if that is the USFSA 'wish list' for 2012 Nationals?
:eek: Can anyone who has received this calendar confirm? Is this calendar only sent to USFS' Friends of Figure Skating supporters?

I noticed it too when I received my calendar. I believe you have to be a Friends of FS supporter to receive this calendar. Your membership includes 10 issues of Skating mag.

Are you sure it's the 2012 calendar and not the 1984 calendar?

Was whoever put together those backgrounds and captions someone who doesn't actually follow the sport? Maybe they looked at a listing of the 2011 Nationals long program results, or a listing of the returning skaters in order of last year's rankings, and incorrectly inferred the medal results from that incomplete information?

That sounds likely, since Dornbush and Miner were 1st and 2nd in the FS.

And, as I mentioned in the other thread, they have both Rachael and Mirai winning the silver medal.

You caught me! :D

Seriously -- wow. I know nobody's perfect, but these are some MAJOR bloopers.

They also didn't include Agnes in the calendar, while they included the pewter medalists in men's and pairs (Hubbells weren't in it since they split).

Is Ryan Bradley in this calendar?

Maybe Ryan asked for Ricky and Ross to be moved up one place. And Ryan appears as the platinum medalist elsewhere?? :D Those are some seriously embarrassing mistakes.

Nooooo! How dare you suggest that anyone other than PLUSHY is worthy of a platinum medal :rofl:
