Have loved Eric's skating too from very early on. He was sitting in the stands a few feet away from us at Canadians in Saskatoon in 09, that's the last Canadians he skated with Rachel Kirkland and the poor guy looked gutted that his career was going nowhere. Glad he decided to stick it out and was able to get to team up with such a great partner in Meagan after the 2010 season was over with. I guess that saying "good things come to those that wait" applies to Eric! Looking forward to seeing how Meagan & Eric skate in the second half of this season!
