    Congrats on their 9th place finish...how fantastic was that! I'm starting to get excited for US pairs again, and they are a big reason why. Love the choreographer choice and I'm really pulling for them to work hard and if they can get to Sochi next season...woohoo! Great job, guys!

    Associated Press article after their FS (she's very animated in the photo): http://summergames.ap.org/boston/article/scimeca-knierim-insist-theyre-long-haul

    I would think so. :)

    Sorry to see them playing catch up at their first GP. Really hoping that Chris' injury is behind him and that they have been able to sufficiently train their programs to compete will this weekend! Fingers crossed!!

    Alexa and Chris set a new ISU SB and PB score of 59.56 (previous was 57.99 at Cup of China) despite Chris doubling the Salchow. Triple twist & throw 3F both received + GOE - they are in 5th heading into tomorrow's FS.

    They did look much better in the SP then in their first 2 competitions of the season. I think they will be peaking at Nationals which is when it counts anyway. They got a late start to the season with his injury and it has shown.

    ^Even if they were down in the rankings, they scored what I think is one of their best international scores. I think they are slowly but surely improving and are definitely setting themselves up for a spot on Team Sochi

    I forgot to cross-post this latest "Inside Edge" blog from the U.S. Pairs thread in GSD - it has details on why Chris Knierim was stuck in Beijing after Cup of China, as well as some of their other challenges so far this season: http://www.icenetwork.com/news/2013/12/04/64386776
