    I don't look that good now and I'm nowhere near 70. Bitch. :

    Considering she shares most kiss and cries with Tom, what exactly does Granny Calvin do?

    She's supposed to be his assistant coach. No idea what's her speciality, if any.

    Good question. She's obviously not a "Zoueve"

    She does though wear interesting outfits some times. Like that ski-bunny-cowgirl look she had going in the K&C last season.

    Well, for a technical coach, he is really only very good at teaching the jumps....his students aren't exactly known for being good spinners

    A lot of time when you have a lot of good skaters in one location (Delilah) they feed off of each other and push each other to greatness. It's hard being the big fish in a little sea. But when you have greatness around you (DSC) I think it helps a competitive environment.

    Haha, you mean Braden Overett, former men's competitor. Braden is busy in L.A. getting his sports clothing company going. In case you didn't catch Ryan Bradley's plug in the K&C for his jacket maker, it is Veretto Sports, Braden's company where the name is an altered spelling of his last name. Many of the competitors at Nationals received sample Veretto clothes and were wearing them for practices and in the K&C. They are really nice, well-made and thoughtfully designed (e.g. extra lining at the bottom of women's pants so they don't rip on boot hooks). Braden is an excellent clothing designer and seamstress himself. In the past he has made competition outfits for a few elite skaters in L.A.

    Check out his company at http://www.verettosport.net/index.html. It looks like the website is just getting going so there are not a lot of links to merchandise yet.

    Also, just thought I'd mention that Dalilah Sappenfield's first name has two "a"s in it (Latin spelling). It is commonly misspelled with the American spelling.

    Now that Braden is retired could he please will his footwork to one of our senior guys....there sure are enough of them who need it.

    By my count, Tom Zakrajsek coached 7 seniors, 5 juniors and 1 novice at 2011 Nationals. His skaters won a total of 5 medals this year:
    Gold - Ryan Bradley & Max Aaron (Jr)
    Silver - Rachael Flatt
    Pewter - Agnes Zawadzki & McKinzie Daniels (Jr)

    Senior: Brandon Mroz (7th), Alexe Gilles (14th), Alexander Johnson (16th), Joshua Farris (21st, skating injured).

    Junior: David Wang (7th), Timothy Koleto (10th), Will Michael - last-minute alternate (12th).

    Novice: Jessica Pfund (12th).

    Johnson, Daniels, Wang & Michael started with Zakrajsek this season; Koleto's primary coach is Becky Calvin.

    Lauren Dinh (Junior Ladies silver medalist) used to be coached by Zakrajsek but switched to Damon Allen this season.

    What I'd like to see is Jason Brown's coach and his choreographer(s) be associated with the Broadmoor team. Jason's skating skills are to die for, but he is at the stage where he needs to learn a 3A and 4T, so it might be a good fit for all concerned.
    Coach: Kori Ade
    Choreographers: Kori Ade and Rohene Ward

    If you haven't seen his LP, you should have a look.

    It is actually frightening how good this combination would be. Take Sylvia's list of all Z-Bots and apply Brown's skating skills, choreography, and packaging?

    Can anyone say "US Skating Domination?" I mean really.

    Dang, that footwork into triple flip/double axel/twizzles/footwork sequence (which was really cool) was unbelievable Amazing first spin combo, great salchow entrance. Nice. Also, that's the longest hair I've seen on a male singles skater ever, I'd imagine someone giving him crappy feedback on it from the conservative old USFSA?

    Gotta say, I wish his choreographer would take out the lame David Wilson facestroking It detracted a bit for me, since at this point I equate it with "LOOK, I'M SINCERE. LOOK. THAT COUNTS FOR SOMETHING, RIGHT?"

    Yes, and I am sorry for both mistakes.

    3 Axel for Jason Brown and Linda Lever

    Did Brian B. learn his money jumps from Linda Leaver or did Linda send him to other coaches for that? I always wonder how someone who's never done a certain jump can teach it successfully. I'd like to see Jason get a 3 axel by next season or two.

    Rohene Ward had a beautiful quad toe among other jumps. He did a gorgeous 4T in the warm-up at 2006 Nationals. Unfortunately, it wasn't there in the actual competitive program. Perhaps he could help Jason with his jumps.

    I didn't realise that Alexander Johnson swapped to Tom Zakrajsek this season. Didn't he used to live in Alaska?

    Jason Brown is AMAZING! Thanks for that link. Second most interesting US skater, IMO (after Nathan Chen). Gorgeous, gorgeous basics.

    And it's great to see Rohene Ward doing choreography.

    No Ziggy, I don't he did switch to Z. I think people were just speculating on what it would take to get him a 3 Ax.

    I mean really, look at that performance, do you really think that looks like a Z-Bot?
