    Scott was right. Abbott was great but not perfect, which gives him room and motivation to improvement for Worlds. (i.e. better loop, better sal, one of the lutz combos should be a 3/3 etc).

    I am happiest for the fact that he stayed calm and focused throughout. (Actually he and Rippon both)

    I don't have anything useful to say in here except that I adore Jeremy's skating, and I'm thrilled that my favorite American skaters took both the Men's and Ladies' titles. I can't even remember the last time that happened. Is there an Ashley uber thread yet?

    There is a report that JAs step dad is hospitalized after collapsing during the free skate. Looking for a source.

    So far, Jeremy's amazing FS from Nationals hasn't been uploaded onto youtube (either that or TIIC there are removing it).

    For those who want to see his kickasss SP again, here it is.

    Congratulations, Jeremy, our 3-time US Champion !! Here's to hoping the best is still yet to come from you!! .

    His FS is stunning, one of my all time favorites. I hope he can skate this clean at Worlds.

    I'm so happy he won back the National title! He's so amazing. I love that with each competition he has been building on the LP and making it even more special. There is still room for improvement and I really hope that he is able to perform his LP perfectly at Worlds. I'm also happy that he landed the quad in two straight competitions now. He seems comfortable with it, which I think bode wells for him as he goes onto 4CC and Worlds.

    I feel like order is restored in the world of US figure skating now that Jeremy has regained his national title. I had been wondering what the very noticeable disturbance/commotion in the audience was during his LP skate and I'm saddened that Abbott's step-dad had collapsed in the crowd while he was performing. I really hope that he is okay and makes a full recovery soon! I was and still am so over the moon for the very high level that Jeremy's skating is currently at. He was so fast, crisp, and light on his feet during both his SP and LP! He is skating with the confidence and stability of a World medalist and I hope it keeps up all the way through to the World Championships in March and all the way through to the Olympic trials and Olympics in 2014. GO JEREMY!!!

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    Did this happen on the side of the rink visible on camera? Because if it did I must *really* have been into his skate - I'm often distracted by things I see in the background and I didn't notice anything. [OT Which reminds me - why don't people who wave at the camera during a performance realize what tools they are?]

    Anyway, fantastic work by both Adam & Jeremy.

    And I'm very proud how much Detroit-area rinks continue to be represented among US and Canadian teams.

    Yes, it was definitely visible on camera. I was actually wondering if someone in the audience had collapsed or had a heart attack as there was so much commotion going on. A lot of people standing up, moving around, heads turning, people talking. Jeremy was right at the boards skating by when it happened, which makes it all the more remarkable that he skated right on unphased to nail his 3flip. He really had his tunnel vision blinders on apparently.

    Jeremy just tweeted reminding followers of his DSC1/2 predicition at the beginning of the season. He was right- he and Adam did it!

    To all the skaters who spend so much $$$$ on bad choreographers, you should hire Jeremys services in the near future.

    Joining in celebration. Great showing at Nationals, yet without feeling that perfection was achieved so it's only downhill from here ( aka 2010 Nationals).
    I love Jeremy's taste in choosing his programs, year after year. But this year might top it all.
