    Heading to Greensboro, Adam Rippon feels 'really good'

    My hope for Adam is that he stays on his feet this year and finally wins a medal at nationals. He's given some really fantastic performances but then he's also given some really "lackluster" (as the author says) skates. Jeremy and Ryan have a similar problem -- could make for an interesting competition.

    Big Cheers for Adam~ You can do it!

    He's my favorite for the win.

    And Ryan will be a treat for the crowd~ We saw him at the St. Louis Nationals where he brought down the house with his Saturday Night Fever Freeskate! If he medals, that's a bonus for him.

    No bribes needed. Hopefully, I will be able to hang two new banners for him in the arena.

    Adam graduated from high school a few years ago, right? The article is talking about delaying college?

    No bribes for me either. I love him!

    BUT when did he become a New Yorker??

    Maybe based on his skating club affiliation (SCNY). But we know he's from Clarks Summit, PA, right outside Scranton
