    I guess my concerns about IN calling her election a "virtual lock" were completely unfounded.

    Yay Michelle!

    Can you say, "No Brainer?" If they DIDNT elect her I would be buying tar and feathers.
    Wouldnt you just love to know the vote totals?
    I am still pretty sore about Rudy not making the nats hall of fame....but I bet he gets it next year....

    I didn't realize he hadn't made it. With his pairs records, his nat'l title, & his world bronze, he should already be there IMO.

    Congrats to Michelle.

    She deserves it so much, and I love that how - just like in her skating career - she sweeps a US and World "title" in the same year ;) And they both have only her in the spotlight, sigh just perfect. She deserves it.

    I could drone on and on like any Kwan fan with love in their eye.. but I'll sum it up by saying that she is the epitome of what every sports fan dreams of having in the athelete that they are rooting for, and I'm very proud to have stuck by her during every amazing high and crushing low moment of her career. She handled every moment better than I did as her fan, and she did it all as if a 5 year old were watching and judging her every move at all times. She is the greatest role model and will forever be my favorite athlete of all-time. I'd like to thank her for making my job as an uber fan very easy for many years and her style of skating will always be my favorite. :)

    Congratulations to Michelle!! I'm so happy for her!

    (As an aside, I went to their website to see who is in the WHOF, but their website is so poorly designed and half the links don't work so I never found anything. I don't know who built their site but they need to find someone else. Pronto.)

    The Kween's honors are well deserved, taking nothing from anybody else.

    Rudy was quite prominent at Nationals, including being a featured performer in the opening ceremonies with shades of his winning performance and even skating with Yamaguchi's daughter, and I heard a buzz that he would be getting his the next time Nationals comes to San Jose.

    In fact, the only thing that really disappointed me about San Jose was that there should have been chants of 6.0 for Michelle in the arena.

    It is just amazing to have been a fan of Kwan's since I first saw her skate at 94 Nationals. How lucky am I to have fallen in love with her? She gave me so many great years of skating and never let her fans down on a personal level and now we get to continue to watch her have success after skating. I am so proud of her and so thrilled for all of her continued success.
