    That is one "to die for" spread eagle position by Cassar.

    Much luck to Wesley and Jonathan in their futures. Very happy that Wesley can go out on a high note with his Omaha free skate!

    I will be looking forward to seeing Jonathan's choreography. With his dance background and his performance ability, I would be he could make a real impact.

    The Italian women skaters always date/marry the hottest guys... Joubert, Zimmerman, Lambiel, and now Brubaker. I didn't know they were dating. Congrats to them! :D

    Wesley's final skate was simply magical. I will remember him and that last skate always.

    And I will remember your name too Mr. Cassar. I looked forward to your programs and wonderful artistry every year!

    I wish both skaters all the happiness that it is possible for life to bestow! Thank you for the happiness you have brought to my life watching you.

    And what a lovely surprise about Rockne and Stefania!

    Yes, Wesley really did have an ethereal moment. How apt, considering his music. It's so nice that he was able to leave the stage on such a warm and fulfilling note.

    I hope Cassar has the same feelings. His free skate wasn't without flaws, but his short was magnificent and overall he has given skating fans so many wonderful performances that I hope he feels fully satisfied with what has given the sport.

    May both move on to equally satisfying and fulfilling activities, wherever their lives should lead them.

    Oh that bitch Stefania! I've long had plans to give Rockne's full thighs a rub down and treat his head of curls to an Indian massage.

    Sigh. Sad, lonely times :wuzrobbed



    All the best to all concerned :)

    Congrats to the lucky couple! :40beers:

    So glad Wesley is going out with such a great final skate at Nationals. And Jonathan has provided so many magical moments at Nationals too. His "Schindler's List" program was my favorite though. Farewell guys and good luck in whatever you persue next! :encore:

    In the article, Wesley says he will consider pairs and is open to tryouts!

    And thanks to Jonathan and Wesley for their contributions to skating! Wesley: Call Tiffany Vise? Or, see if Yasmin Siraj wants to do pairs.

    How quickly can she get a US passport if they marry? :smokin:

    This is what I'm wondering. Should Hotarek be worried?

    Agreed. Both my mother and I thought it was a beautiful moving performance. One of the best of the night.

    Was reading on my phone, and originally thought that Rockne finally found a skating partner... Alas, "only" a fiancee :p

    No she'd be way too tall for Rockne.

    How quickly can he get Italian passport ? Since he hasn't competed for US for so long it may be easier for him to compete for Italy. It will be harder for her since she will have to sit out (at least ) a year for her to compete for US

    According to her ISU biography, Stefania Berton is 161 cm., which is over 5'3". To paraphrase Emma Woodhouse, there have been matches of lesser disparity. But I wouldn't count on their adding an on-ice partnership to their personal relationship.

    USFS would figure out a way to hold him as long as possible, were she the right height for him.

    Judging from previous posts in this thread, I believe that USFS is not alone in that regard. :shuffle:

    Very glad Cambell ended his Nationals on a high note, with a clean skate of his Ave Maria FS. He coaches at my rink in NH every once in a while and seems to be an excellent, detail-oriented coach. It would nice if he kept skating in some capacity for a few more years, but whenever he's ready to transition into full-time coaching, he has all the makings of a successful coach.
    Will miss Cassar's edges and spread eagles, as well!

    5'3.5" and a questionable 5'9" (more realistically 5'8") is NOT a good size match for a pair couple. Mary Beth was like 49" or 4'10" and probably around 80 lbs, that's the kind of partner Rockne needs. I sometimes wonder if Miller or Lam would like to switch to pairs...they are so tiny and so good.

    Considering it's a for sure thing that she'll go to the Olympics as the number one Italian team, I'd say the odds of her skating with anyone else are zero regardless of her personal life. Moreover, they'll be one of the teams fighting for bronze.

    Hannah Miller would be an ideal partner (on ice) for Rockne.

    Berton and HOT-arek cannot dissolve their winning partnership on Team Italia.
