There's no need to judge Blake Rosenthal's jumps by 2010 Nationals alone -- they weren't "a complete mess" when she won Eastern Sectionals last November.

However, stjeaskategym does raise the good point (that's worth repeating) that being a good singles skater (and jumper) does not automatically transfer over to being a good pair skater ... just as pairs and dance -- both in partnering and skills -- are very different disciplines.
He needs someone small with good jumping capabilities and talent for pairs as well. His best bet is finding a singles skater who'd like to try pairs.
There aren't many pair girls up to Rock's standards. Sorry to them :/
Hated that Tracy Tanovich and Michael Chau broke up, but wouldn't mind seeing how she'd do with Rockne. Too bad she's so young. (Yes, much too young to skate with Brubaker. Plus, she'll probably have a growth spurt in a couple of years and get too tall, too.)
Maybe Rockne should move to Florida and see if Peterson/Johnston would be able to find him a partner there.

Send Rockne up here to Canada. I'm sure he can find some nice Canadian girls willing to skate with him.
It's a shame that there are so few good male partners to begin with, in both dance and pairs.
And yet when one appears, we can't find a good female match.
Poor Rockne (and Peter Tchernyshev too).
In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.
I haven't heard much of Daniele Kahle. Is she still skating? Maybe she would try pairs.
Tell Jennifer Don to dust off her skates!
