    I would assume it would be because she has a Grand Prix assignment

    She has a Grand Prix Assignment at Skate America and therefore qualifies for Champs Camp

    Why is Ashley Wagner blond? Yuck, go back to brunette please...

    I see Rachael hasn't let her sassy soccer/PTA mom hairdo grow out any...*sigh* I guess we're looking at another season of this.

    I think both Ashley and Rachael look great.

    Caroline is there because she has a GP assignment.

    Lynn Rutherford tweeted about Tom Z saying Brandon Mroz had been landing 4F and 4Lo in practice.

    Yeah, he still hasn't figured out/learned that he should shut his mouth.

    His tweets are always hilarious! You know I think Alex had a growth spurt this summer. He looks slightly more filled out- more like a young man and less like a boy.

    Looking forward to everyone's new programs this year.

    You scared me with that! I thought she'd gone platinum or something. It doesn't look so bad. Just a few shades lighter, as far as I can tell.

    She's a Cali girl now - gotta be blonde. I think she looks great.

    I realize that ... but I guess the bigger question is why does she have a GP assignment? Give some of the other up-and-coming skaters the chance. *sigh*

    Well, that's a different question.

    I understand your concerns..

    There was a very long discussion about this in the "Skate America TBA" thread, and when it comes down to it, there aren't a lot of alternatives in terms of senior ladies who "deserved" it more than Zhang. Other than Bulanhagui and Forte, those above Caroline at nationals are all already assigned or staying junior. And she is by far the one with the most international experience of the remaining pack.

    ETA: I'm just defending Zhang because it seems like no one else does.

    This page is giving me a "doesn't exist" message. Hope it's just a temporary glitch!

    ETA: Never mind, it's back. I've got a screen full of cute Ricky with his guitar. Maybe I'll have it made into a wallpaper or screen saver!

    I love Fred & Ethel Flatt. Very snuggly looking.

    I was hoping to see it growing out. And not so blond. That look just does not work for her. It is very middle aged elementary school teacher. I've said it before...she'll be skating in a modified denim jumper with applique decorations on the front next.

    ETA: I assume reporting injury to USFSA is a topic in that binder.....

    Actually, Rachael's hair looks a little better, more modern, so I'm OK with it.
