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

    This thread is about Champ's Camp. There are plenty of other places around here, including the thread already mentioned above, to go complain, again, about Caroline Zhang and the GP.

    Thanks for all the links, the photos from Champ's Camp are always fun. I hope Alex has caught his breath by now.

    Jeremy is so out of breath. They must have caught him right after his run-through.
    Then again, maybe it's the thin air.

    I don't get the purpose of that.
    If something is posted on youtube, one is able to watch the clips in most cases.

    I see Rachael's still got that godawful yellow dress... I sincerely hope it's just a place holder until she gets something new.

    Oh for the love of my corneas, please get another dress!

    Screaming Yellow Zonkers!!! We will need to wear Transition lenses at skating events, etc. Once she gets on the ice, the lenses can glaze over to protect our poor corneas and retinas for that matter!

    Rachael is very pretty in dark colors like she wears for some of the shows, especially dark blue. I really don't understand why she doesn't use these colors for competitions. About the only person who looks good in this color is Kiira Korpi who is so stunningly gorgeous she can wear anything.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    That's a puzzle. They'd get back to the area right as the heavy rains are starting, and boatloads of plane flights have been canceled already. A whole lot more likely that they'll end up stranded in Chicago or Cleveland than that they get to the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic right now.

    Armin's twitter made it seem like he would be staying in CO a few extra days due to the hurricane, not leaving early to go home.

    Maybe they let them out of some events so they could make some phone calls and get things arranged for their homes in case they live in one of the areas that's going to get hit? I imagine some of them have family members or friends around who can help get necessary or important items and take them to safety for them. I have no idea why they would try to send them home at this point when flights into and out of the affected areas are so insane right now.

    Thanks for all the pictures and news from the camp!
    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    So do we not get to see the videos of the actual skating? Am I just missing them?
