Gracie Gold bored me.


Me too! Was it me or was her piece really long compared to the others?

Loved Adam and Jeremy!

Many moons ago, didn't they show Rachael Flatt when she won novice?

True. However, I think those Nationals were on ABC rather than NBC. NBC uses a bunch of time for sports updates and other time wasting stuff. There isn't enough time for the Novice programs anymore.

Many years ago, Dick Button's production company supplied footage to ABC/Wide World of Sports. That's how/why we first saw skating on ABC in 1962..

Janet Lynn was shown as Jr. Champion in 1966; my first memory of her.

Ah the days when Jim McKay was at ABC Sports and loved skating, and Dick Button had the highly popular Superstars program going on ABC, and so had some pull there. If it weren't for Uncle Dickie and Jim McKay we would only have seen skating at the Olympics....if then.

Yes and you should have seen how the fur flew over that one... how USFS is always promoting the cute youngsters over the seasoned competitors and how it's bad for the sport.
