    I hope they get to skate professionally before they completely retire. Do they ever go on Torvill and Dean's show in the UK? They are great performers.

    Huge bummer. I hope that they stick around for one mo' season (Sheffield & the next Worlds). I would like to see them make a Worlds podium before they truly retire.

    Well, this pretty much ensures a top-3 finish for Bobrova/Soloviov...maybe even the silver, if Tessa & Scott cannot compete (which is still up in the air)...in which case it will likely be Meryl/Charlie for gold and Bobrova/Soloviov and Pechalat/Bourzat fighting for silver, IMO.

    :wuzrobbed Nooooooo that's just too sad for them. I hope they do reconsider, maybe after some time off to rest and heal and recover. A sheffield send off would be so emotional. :wuzrobbed

    I hope she recovers and they reconsider coming back for one more season. Finishing their career at home would be great.

    :(:(:( but since this was the third time this season, I did expect a surgery to come sooner or later. But very sad way to finish a career. I really gonna miss them on Saturday (Stockholm Ice) as well as in Worlds.

    All her friends and supporters will be glad to know Sinead came through her surgery smoothly this evening and is well and looking great. She thanks everyone for their good wishes and will be back on the ice as soon as it is sensible. There was a good article and photo in The Herald today by Neil Drysdale who has covered their careers from the beginning.

    The Kerrs have had home-town reception wherever they have skated! :cheer2:
    They have been crowd favorites everywhere!

    IMO ending their career with another medal at the Euros is really good, especially considering they were already injured this season. Probably it is smart to end a career when the body has been saying "stop!" for a while.

    I hope Sinead recovers quickly and I'm sure audiences everywhere would be delighted to watch them in shows! :)

    Since hearing about her injury last week I was sure they would withdraw, but I was still holding out hope. :( So sad that they won't be there.

    :( :( :(
    The Kerrs were always a ray of sunshine at every competition. I have never met nicer, more open to public and happy with being on the ice skaters than these two. I really associate them with light, happiness and all the positive emotions possible. They will leave an empty space in ice dancing and I don't think anyone will be able to fill it soon.

    If there is a slight chance they would reconsider competing in Sheffield, I'm gonna hold on to it. In the meantime, I wish Sinead a speedy recovery and thank them for all wonderful moments they ensured us with :)

    So that means that Bern was both Fede & Massi's AND Sinead & John's last competition? Bummer. :( Now I'm even happier that I went and got to cheer for them one last time. Both teams were among my favorites for years - gosh, it seems that they've been around forever!

    I'll keep fond memories of the fab' Scots, they were always a joy to watch. The Scottish OD was a highlight of their career and one that I'm sure many will remember.

    Thanks for all the good memories, Sinead & John, and I hope to see you again in shows! :)
