    “I was tired from skating and training and I had to sell jeans to picky soccer moms, I didn't really wanted to deal with them...”

    I love her!

    Thanks for the interview article. It was an interesting read. It’s interesting she wants and prepares for a career in sports journalism. She seems to be a candid and no-nonsense type of person. Ashley has two beautiful programs this season, and I like her confidence. Good luck to Ashley at GPF.

    She looks very determined yet down to earth. I also liked how she answered those questions. She's not my favourite skater, but definetely the most improved one in these two last seasons. Good for her!

    I just watched her SP & FS on youtube, and I'm proud of her!

    To come back like that after two falls reminds me, *once again*, of Sasha Cohen, whom did the same thing at the 2006 Olympics. Here's hoping the comparisons keep coming, all the way up to the 2014 Olympics!
