    The beautiful second blossoming of Nicole Bobek this past year truly is the feel good story in the skating world for me! I am so relieved that Nicole rediscovered sanctuary on the ice entertaining a crowd where she clearly belongs. :swoon::cheer2::encore:

    Definitely a feel good story, and I enjoyed reading every word. The message I take: it has been Nicole waking up to her blessings, and her extremely hard work actually applying her gifts rather than taking them for granted that has brought her back this far, along with the important lifelines that others extended to her, rather than turning their backs.

    Her circus school training sounds interesting. I wish Nicole continued success in her life's journey.

    Great article and I really hope that Nicole is able to continue progressing on this road. There is a joy in her recent performances that is lovely to see.

    And :respec: to Lynn Plage and JoJo Starbuck for being generous with their time and support!

    That girl has the charisma to reach the last row in an arena when she wants to and I am so happy she wants to---best wishes to Nicole and thanks for the positive article.

    I can't tell you how sad it made me when I heard of her struggles and that she would be going to jail. She's always been my fave U.S. lady but to now read this brings a :D to my face. You go girl! All the best to you always.

    I really like Nicole and glad to see that she is back on the right path, but the whole drama about how she has no money and can only afford one costume is troublesome when there are photos of her on icenetwork wearing this season's $100+ lululemon warm up jacket.

    That was really touching. I watched her on Improv Ice, and you could just feel the joy in her skating. She was radiant.

    Wishing her continued success and happiness!

    Do you have a link? Not that I don't believe you.
    I just want to see what a "lululemon" jacket looks like. Hehe.

    Maybe she received it as a present from someone - it is possible, you know. :shuffle:

    It's one thing to put down a couple hundred for a jacket so you'll look nice on TV.....it's quite another to lay out a couple thousand for a camera worthy costume.....ask anyone who knows....

    I agree that Phil made a bit too much of her "financial issues". OK, so she's not loaded... but lots of people can't afford sparkly costumes and skating lessons.

    Pink jacket at a breast cancer event? Do we know lululemon wasn't a sponsor? (Plus it looks like she had recently skated at a different breast cancer event)

    Not to say she didn't buy it herself, but there are many ways she could have had it given to her.

    What? No, too logical! Even she did get it as a gift she should have sold it on craigslist?!
