    Not a surprise, but
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?

    So sad. Their Claire de Lune LP was one of the most gorgeous pairs programs of the entire 2009/2010 season.

    I am going to miss them. Especially that gorgeous Claire de Lune LP, it's one of my favorite pair programs ever.

    That's a bummer. Perhaps my favorite US pairs team.

    I realize that 4 more years wasn't in the cards, but I was hoping that they'd stick around for another year or two to hopefully go to worlds again. I think they had a lot to offer and were still improving, although hampered by injuries.

    I wish them well. They will be missed.

    It is sad for me to see them leave competition without ever having reached their potential. They could've been the top US team from '07 - '10 IMO.

    Anyway, I will miss them

    They have been my favorite US pair since Babilonia and Gardner.

    I hope they have great success in the next phase of their lives.

    I was so excited for them when they won US Nats - unforunately injuries kept them from achieving their full potenial. Ben Okolski is IMO the best male partner the US has seen in years...I will miss them.

    Such a shame... as good as their skating looks on TV, they look even better live.... glad I got to see them win their National Title in Spokane. Best wishes to both of them.

    I loved them, too bad the injuries got in their way I thought they would be at the top after their Nationals win.

    Noooooooo! I'd been expecting this ever since they passed on going to 4CC, but I was still hoping that maybe.

    They are definitely my favorite US pair ever. I fell in love with them the first time I saw them skate, which was something that hadn't happened in quite sometime. It's truly a shame that they had so many injury problems that held them back from really reaching their true potential.
