    It's not the end of the world. It just reflects poorly on the author and publisher IMO.

    I was just curious as we've seemed to have seen or heard from everyone else.

    Between what we've seen of Charlie and Adam, our men are not going to meet their Team Minimum Curl Requirement this season; no way that Evan, Johnny or Jeremy can offer strength in the corkscrews and bounce area. What a huge change of sartorial direction for our men! We can only see what the competitive results will be but it's a very big roll of the dice! LOL

    She was in the blurry group pic, and she's tweeted about the Olympic Training Center, so she's definitely there.

    Maybe he's just currently in the "molting phase"

    It's terrifying. I'm going to need all year to describe it appropriately.

    I'm not sure, but perhaps what kwanette meant was that it was not a typo, but rather use of the wrong word? However, since the author used "their" correctly earlier in the same sentence, I thought it probably was just that it was written in haste and just a momentary mental lapse. I consider typos to be things like transposing letters ("thier") or a repeated letter ttheir, or other errors due to slips of the finger, timing in typing, etc., rather than errors of spelling or grammar.

    ETA: I just looked through the latest photos and saw Madison's self-designed SD dress. Maybe it looks better in person and in motion?

    See skatingfan5's post below. She knows what I meant. I'm a retired English teacher.

    Thanks, yes, that is what I meant.

    I particularly enjoy the blogs written by a Yale graduate on IN..." me and Emily.." Maybe that was a typo, too.

    Well, a change in tonsorial direction, anyway. Now, Madison's dress--is that a change in sartorial direction, or just a little further along the bizarro ice dance spectrum?

    "I like to have that balance between school and skating; if there is too much school, or too much skating, it doesn't work for me," said the 18-year-old, who trains under Christy Krall in Colorado Springs and also works with Chicago-based David Santee.

    The U.S. bronze medalist was sidelined the month of June with a sprained SI (sacroiliac) joint, which temporarily derailed her plans to train a triple Lutz-triple toe for her new short program, choreographed by David Wilson to music from the Sex and the City 2 soundtrack.
    I wondered if Agnes would stay in the Springs, or move to work more closely with Santee now that she's finished high school. Anyone know what an SI injury involves or how serious it is?

    Madison's SD dress would have to be in motion at the speed of light!

    Just now, from USFS:

    Expect @JohnnyGWeir to "soar" during his "Phoenix" free skate. Weir has a great spirit during this comeback, it's fun to watch. #ChampsCamp
