    ^^I know I won't but you can bet your life the USFSA will. :)

    Gracie is an amazing jumper but that's it. If and when she becomes a more complete skater I'll hop on her bandwagon but for now she bores me when she skates...

    Does everyone have to be an uber? Can we just be happy to see all the skaters we like do well? I really enjoy Ashley's skating- but I enjoy many other skaters as well.

    I love her maturity and the respect she has for her coaches. I want her to have the performance of her dreams at Worlds. I think she and Gracie are fine representatives.

    Very well said. Ashley has worked hard and takes every mistake as a learning experience. I hope she will skate two programs that she will be very proud of at Worlds, regardless of placement. Gracie has the goods as well and could make a splash at Four Continents and Worlds.

    Sounds like she is motivated after what happened. Naturally I would have the same reaction you do but then again, there are some who thrive off that kind of pressure.
