    Also cracking up at the robot arms.
    Interesting how men with such different builds can excel in this sport. Both Josh and Jeremy have very long legs for their respective heights, which makes the contrast with Max, who is just the opposite, short legs with a long torso, even more noticeable. Funny too is that Max is the fastest guy out there while Josh with those long legs is one of the slower skaters among the top guys. Jeremy doesn't seem particularly fast either.

    Scott Hamilton was a really fast skater, too. The shorter guys get their legs working like pistons; they can generate tremendous speed and power with each stroke.

    In that picture above, Max looks tall...compared to Scott.

    Max is probably like a lot of 20-21 years old, and probably only has one or two suit options in his whole wardrobe. I wouldn't call Gracie's dress flourescent (especially compared to so many ice dancers we see ), I think it's more a coral/salmon color. They both look super cute in those pictures though!
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Our editorial staff takes a crack at naming its best and worst from the 2012-13 season...give it a read: http://www.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    Excerpts:

    Mickey Brown, senior producer

    Favorite breakthrough performance: In a few short months, Max Aaron went from relative unknown to budding star. He started building momentum in September, picking up a win at the inaugural U.S. International Figure Skating Classic. His first-place finish at the Midwestern Sectional Championships -- with a free skate that contained a quad and eight triples, no less -- set the stage for what was to come at the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. On the strength of his distinctive West Side Story free skate, Aaron overcame an almost five-point deficit after the short to capture the gold in Omaha, Neb., becoming one of the least likely U.S. champions in recent memory.
    Adam Spunberg, editorial producer

    Biggest upset: Though perhaps not over the most competitive field, Aaron's hard-charging, quad-spinning triumph at the U.S. championships came out of a mystery corner somewhere in left field. The signs were there, yes, but the inexperienced Aaron blasted his way to the top with technical mastery and a unique personality. With that win, Aaron has catapulted himself beyond the realm of Cinderellas and underdogs, so that the next time he rules the day, nobody will be surprised.

    continued...

    Lynn Rutherford

    Favorite breakthrough performance: Disappointed with his eighth-place finish at the 2012 U.S. Figure Skating Championships and tired of criticisms of his hard-charging style, Max Aaron considered retiring. Instead, he roared back at the U.S. International Figure Skating Classic in Salt Lake City last September, hitting a quad Salchow and two triple Axels, with a fistful of triples in the second half of the program. It served notice: The U.S. had a gutsy new leading man who could jump.
    Sarah Brannen and Drew Meekins

    Favorite performance: Again, it seems impossible to pick just one. We immediately thought of Kim's and Ten's free skates at the world championships. Both were superb programs superbly performed, one by an Olympic champion making a comeback, the other by a young rising star finally delivering on his early promise. Add to that Aaron's electrifying free skate at the U.S. championships and Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov's incredible free skate at worlds, surely one of the greatest pairs free skates of all time.

    Biggest upset: All the big upsets seemed to happen in men's events this season. Ten's silver at worlds and Aaron's gold at the U.S. championships were amazing. Even more surprising was Reynolds' gold at Four Continents, so we'll give him the "biggest upset" nod.

    Favorite breakthrough performance: Aaron at the U.S. championships, going from eighth in 2012 to first in 2013.

    Aaron on the quad: "Anyone who tries it is a warrior."
    Tara Wellman

    Biggest upset: Aaron becoming national champion. From wondering where he fit into the U.S. men's scene to the top of the podium? While some may have expected a good U.S. championships performance from him, not many anticipated he'd walk away with the title.
    Amy Rosewater

    Biggest surprise: The number of quads the men are performing these days. I covered Timothy Goebel when he became the first skater to land three quads in a program and thought that was where skating was going back in the late 1990s. Now that the scoring system is rewarding skaters for trying quads, the men are actually doing them. Fernández did three at Europeans, and Reynolds did three at Four Continents. It's not as if we didn't think the men could do so many; it's just eye popping to see so many actually being done. I especially love that Aaron is trying multiple quads and talking about trying more difficult quads (i.e. flip).

    Favorite outfit: Aaron's Tron short program costume. It was fun and bold and, of course, went well with the music. I also liked Ten's before-and-after tuxedos from The Artist ... very clever.

    Sylvia posted this in another thread...excerpted here:

    2-time Olympian Weir leads Ice Dreams in Jamestown, N.Y.:
    http://www.goerie.com/article/201305...n-Jamestown-NY

    He hopes to snag one of just two U.S. men's Olympic spots for 2014. Current U.S. champ Max Aaron will also be in the hunt, and he's also in Saturday's show, but don't expect to see any friction. Weir said few veterans treated him warmly when he was an up-and-comer, but he aims to be different.

    "We're absolutely friends. Max is an incredible skater, and so young," Weir said. "Now that I'm the vet, I look at young guys as people I have to encourage. They are the new wave of American figure skating."
