    Heh. ;) Not that I'd blame him, though. Mary Beth more than proved her worth at Nationals.

    Mary Beth is a rock star. She pulled that team through in the LP when Rockne was the one having an off night. She showed me something.

    I loved her spunk when she fought to land the second throw, late in the LP.

    Well one team has already defected to the Philippines. :lol: It's only a matter of time before half of the teams from Nationals disappear, split, reteam, etc.

    The height difference would be embarrassing. :lol:

    What we really want to know if any of the top guys have broken off their partnerships to skate with Caitlin, right? She has been without a partner for way too long!

    I think Speroff would make a great partner for her but I like him with Donlan so I won't hope for a break up there.

    Haven is the real pairs girl in that family. More potential more personality and definately the right build. Hopefully she gets her chances.

    That would be silly. I think Frazier is better than Drew at this point. They are good together.

    Andrews Deluc surely didn't look happy at 2012SJ. Maybe he might be available for Caitlin?

    Cassie can't jump, but Andrews/LeDuc do have some lovely qualities together. I wonder if they'll stick it out for a little longer.

    Reese you raise an interesting question. Why is it that pairs skaters who have good jumps when they are singles loose them when they become pairs?:(

    It's more difficult to jump next to somebody else. Really distracting. When you try and match their timing, yours can be easily thrown off.

    As for Andrews/Leduc who knows really, I heard they were fighting a bit before nationals; but things around nationals tend to get really high in tension when mistakes are being made so.... He doesn't appear to be all that strong so his options may be limited.

    I really hate saying this, but if Caitlyn cannot find a partner by the start of next season, should she look for one outside the USA? Canada may be the most obvious place, but may be even Russia/Germany/France? I would hate to see her career end for lack of a partner. I hope she finds a worthy partner in the USA.

    Yeah i don't think there'd be anything wrong with her taking up another country...

    Btw as sylvia posted in the other topic, Scimeca and Dmitrov split. Wonder who scimeca will skate with.... She's short enough for Meekins :O

    Meekins???? I'm sorry Meekins needs to realize he has been out way to long! He couldn't even skate with a pint size girl and struggled when he was with Jessica. I would think if he was serious of a come back he would have found someone by now. But hey, more power to him if he can find a small girl or boy ;) :rofl:

    All you have to do is write a check. Pay usfsa back the money they have given you.

    Drew was very good when he was a Junior level skater. He just was not successful on the Senior Level. But I agree with Jaci, he would need a small girl if he is trying to get back in the saddle again! Maybe he should stick to his writing. He seems to do really well with writing about the sport and has stayed connected. Good luck in his partner search as he's been looking for a few years now.
