    I suppose every sport does nonsensical things with their HOF voting/inductions. Why should skating be any different?
    I understand the added value of inducting Rudy in SJ, but he's been eligible for nearly a decade now. If they really wanted him in the HOF, why diss him for an entire decade? It seems this is not the first year they've decided there are other people more important to them than Rudy.

    If Nats were in Omaha this yr or Bumble Flutz, Missouri, we wouldn't be discussing Rudy. I feel really bad for him and it would have meant a lot to him and his SJ supporters for him to be inducted there. Conversely, I can understand why they want MK to be inducted alone. According to Phil Hersh, no one else reached the 51 % to be inducted.

    I am ecstatic for Michelle (what took so long?), but I feel that Rudy should have been nominated for this year as well. I hope he gets his induction honor within the next few years!

    Exactly how it should be: all about Michelle. No one in recent history has done what Michelle has done for skating in the United States. As I always say, Michelle Kwan is US figure skating. I love Rudy a lot, but I get and appreciate why this will be all about Michelle. Her competitive career, all of the future champions she's inspired, the standard of excellence that she set that has yet to be matched...She deserves a night, scratch that, a week of praise and admiration from the USFSA. She carried the torch for so long and she deserves a huge plaque, a giant trophy, a thousand roses and a rousing chorus of "Michelle is our Kween" from the arena.

    I hope NBC or whoever's airing nationals makes sure to air the ceremony. This will definitely be the highlight of San Jose for me! I can't wait!!

    Long Live the Kween!!

    I know. : Not that I really expected her to be , but still there was that last tiny hope. :

    But, good for Michelle. She has moved on with her life and seems to be doing a very good job at doing so.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    Earlier in the thread it was explained that Michelle participated in an official practice at 2006 Olympics (then withdrew) so USFS had to wait 5 years from that practice to consider Michelle retired.

    Rudy was nominated for the US HOF, but did not receive the necessary votes (maybe according to Phil Hersh). He and Kristi were inducted into the San Jose Hall of Fame recently. I hope Rudy will be inducted in Omaha.

    Thrilled for Michelle and very happy I will be there to witness it!!

    I just watched a montage made and uploaded by USFSA on Youtube about Michelle's skating career and I'm having some chills still. I send out my deepest and happiest congratulations to Michelle hoping to see her skate in any shows, most possibly in Yuna's shows

    Michelle You are the inspiration for everyone in and out of skating world, being the absolute awesomeness that you are, I have no doubt that you will definitely have the successful and best career on your current career path. Go Michelle!
