    Idk--I can't find another recent Gold thread in GSD. All the announcement threads re: WTT have been closed. What else is there?

    I wish Phil et al would let Gracie Gold skate senior for a year before declaring her the second coming of Kwan.

    Kwan's name isn't even in the linked article. Can you point out an article or tweet where he's declared her the second coming of Kwan? I must have missed it.

    Not a bad article. He is not crowning her right now. The title was a bit misleading. My first thought when I saw the title was- Oh no! Another worshipful article about Gold. However, it is a pretty balanced article, I think. He is giving due respect to Adelina and the senior ladies. Gracie and Adelina will have the most difficult jumps content; the rest of the field will have the presentation. It will be interesting to see how the judges score them.

    You know darn well what I meant. OK, "I wish people would give her a year of skating senior before declaring her THE SAVIOR OF U.S. LADIES' FIGURE SKATING." There, you happy now?

    Sort of like Yellow Fever, but a little more sparkly.

    Calm down. Gracie is a ray of light in an otherwise pretty bleak US ladies landscape so it is understandable that she is being promoted now. Also she is very talented, so she deserves the attention. I don't recall anyone calling Gold "THE SAVIOR OF U.S. LADIES' FIGURE SKATING", I think that is just hyperbole. Take some valium and relax.
