    I believe jdonavan posted about seeing Y/R's Skate Detroit SP (no public video, AFAIK). But that was back in July and I wouldn't expect most brand new teams to look competition ready so early in the season.

    Add to that, last July was when she had been off for almost a season, and they had been together for four months.

    I am not trying to be mysterious, I apologize If I have. Please refer to ANY of my postings regarding this team...They have all come to fruition. I was and am a fan of Caitlin Y. She was a beautiful breeze of talent that seemed to energize the entire US pair program. As we have seen in the past (many times) a bad breakup can suck the wind out of the sails so to speak. CarrieMarie did nutshell it for me. Thanks!

    Evora/Ladwig did this same show a few years back and it was stunning....sigh...Retired one year too early I guess

    I have hopes for Josh and Caitlyn. If I go on what she posts on instagram, I would say she is happy with her partnership with Josh. But I could wrong. Seeing them compete at Nationals would have made my month, but if they are not ready and want to make a big splash next year by skipping Nationals then that is the better route. Kinda wish Emily Samuelson did that, oh well. Staying together and sending positive vibes is the way to go. Isn't that part of the formula for a good pair, longevity?

    I kind of hoped that Caitlyn would skate with Themi Leftheris. Oh well, whomever she skates with, I wish her the best. She really is a lovely skater. Few US women have such good posture.

    I don't think anyone is trying to say she is sitting at home on her couch eating bon-bons. She is a naturally thin girl. I think the point trying to be made is that they most likely were not in competitive shape due to injury, lack of training due to injury, and lack of competitive experience, so this withdrawl isn't a big suprise. It would be unrealistic to think that they would be ready for Nationals with all the time they sat out in the fall, especially considering they are a brand new team. I don't think anyone is disputing an injury, but perhaps there were other factors to this withdrawl as well. It's really doesn't matter at this point. It is what it is. It's too bad as I would have enjoyed seeing them in Omaha.
