    Rosalynn Sumners said she was going to do a duet with Linda Fratianne (if this is the event she was talking about in the interview I read). She didn't feel up to a solo so Disson arranged it. I would guess they want Evan to at least make an appearance as he is the reigning Olympic Champion. They could hardly not invite him.

    Maybe he's not planning to go to Nationals.

    The advertisement states "Cast & Special Appearances." There is no specific listing of which skaters will skate & which will make a special appearance. ;-)

    Gee, I would love to go to this, here's hoping it's televised. :)

    Seriously, all those names I love, and I can only imagine how fabulous the skating will be! :cool: Brings back so many memories of skating specials in the past...

    I don't think Evan will be competing at Nationals. Phil Hirsch all but confirmed it.

    I have one extra ticket available at a very steep discount -- if anyone is interested please PM me. It should be a great seat based on what we paid for it (sec 121). You would be sitting next to my hubby and me.

    With what proof? He's not the be-all-know-all of American Men's Figure Skating. Last I checked Phil is no more than just a reporter. If he said Evan was running for President, would it be true? Phil = nobody. We'll all just have to wait and see what happens.

    Article in today's Bergen Record mainly about Scotty McCreedy but does include quote from Nancy saying she will skate her Olympic program minus the triple jumps. On a side note, the Ice Vault skating Rink will hold two clinics the day of the show and cast members will be attending the clinics.

    Evan just announced that he will not compete in any events this season (no Natls; no Sochi) - on the TODAY Show a few minutes ago. Funny that he made no mention of this event....just said that he is taking time off to get healthy. So will he be in East Rutherford? Probably yes but it would have been odd to tell TODAY Show viewers that he would be skating in a cheese-fest show one day after announcing that he would not compete for the season.

    Lysacek could still skate a watered down show program or make a non-skating appearance with the other legends. We'll find out soon enough.

    Gracie Gold tweeted yesterday that she will debut her new short program at this show.

    Thanks, paskatefan, for providing the airdate of February 1st, 2014! :cheer2: I must've missed your post before until I re-read this thread. :)

    Can't wait to hear first hand accounts of how everybody did, especially G.G.'s new SP. :smokin:

    Really??

    I found it odd that she was at that Skatefest nonetheless.

    Love Alissa but I thought the cast was exclusively olympic medalist & 2014 hopefuls?

    So pumped if Gracie is truly debuting the short tomorrow and I can be there to watch!

    I don't know for sure, but Alissa's photo with Snowplow Sam looks like it was taken at the same rink and tweeted around the same time today:

    That's a good looking group #AmericanLegends http://pic.twitter.com/OrY6VHcAff

    However, I guess it's possible Alissa could have appeared at USFS' Skatefest only.

    ETA: RD, please tweet tomorrow night if Alissa skates in the show! :)

    I haven't seen Max in any of the rehearsal pictures...hope he's well, and didn't have travel problems. :confused:

    I follow a guy on Twitter who recently went to Denver on business, and then was stuck there for 2-3 days waiting for a flight back to Texas.

    I just realized that Czisny's photo has replaced Ross Miner's on the event page. I hope he's recovering well from the injury that led to his WD from TEB.

    ETA: It sounds like Lysacek will appear at the show tonight: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/sho...ympic-season&p=4076720&viewfull=1#post4076720
