Coincidence? Jeremy Abbott's less than stellar 2010-2011 season was marred by several pairs of warped boots made by. . . wait for it. . . RIEDELL.

There has been a rash of issues with boots over the last few seasons. Riedell wasn't the only manufacturer with skaters who had problems. Just to keep in mind, most of the boots are custom made...and hand made. So, there are bound to be problems.

I can't believe no one else has figured this out. The Kween was not brought in just to be the keynote speaker. She was given that role to cover up the REAL reason for her inclusion. She is training again after much begging from the USFSA ($$$$$) in order to help the US secure 3 spots in Sochi.

Yes! finally.

ETA: I just looked through the latest photos and saw Madison's self-designed SD dress. :eek: Maybe it looks better in person and in motion? :shuffle:
We can only hope.


Is Anyone else having trouble viewing the photos on IN? I just get a black screen whenever I click on the gallery thumbnails.
I have this problem on my iPad (Safari) last night, but it's working on Firefox and Safari on my Mac.

Christina Gao has a beautiful smile. Jason Brown's sister's facial expression is similar to Brown's.

Took a quasi-break from skating and am glad to be getting back into it and being (re)introduced to skaters old and new to me.

Re: Johnny's using "Poker Face" seems like a comfortable way to ease back into the competitive scene. It would have bothered me a little if he was using it during the Olympic season, but since he's not, why not have a little fun?

I like Agnes' new hair color.
Caydee really, really needs to chill it with the tanning.

I don't see Meryl in any of the team photos. :confused: Is that Gretchen Donlan between Lynn and Charlie on Team 3? USFSA needs a better camera. :P

Or a better photographer. It's nice to have photos, but it would be nicer if they weren't blurry.

Whoops! BittyBug beat me to it.

WARNING: Kwan trivia alert! ;) She used East of Eden for her SP for only the equivalent of one season (the end of 2000-01 and the beginning of 2001-02 seasons); Nationals 2001 was the link Impromptu posted of that SP program. Some of the EoE music was used even earlier than the Exhibition program linked -- it was the beginning part of her 1993-94 long program music, which featured two other selections.

I wish Michelle had "shoved" EOE on us more often. I have watched, I think, every one of her EOE programs, some many times over. She used a cut of it in 93-94, as noted, and a cut in her long program, the full version as an exhibition in '96, the same exhibition program as a competitive program in the '98 Pro-Am Worlds (considered by many to be her best performance of it), the same program as an exhibition in 1999, a newly-choreographed SP version in 2001, which she carried over to the 2001-02 season but did not use, unfortunately, for her Olympic short program. It is Michelle's signature music, just like Afternoon of a Faun is for Janet Lynn, Swan Lake (and the Swan by Saint-Saens) is for Oksana Baiul and Romeo and Juliet is for Sasha. Unfortunately, it looks like Johnny wants Lady Gaga to be his signature music. The Swan could have been his, too.

Strange that Zach is there but Madison isn't. I noticed she wasn't in the group pic at the beginning of the week and no sign of her at the team building either.
