I miss Brandon. He is such a nice guy and such a talented skater.
When skaters get to the end of the skating road, I always wonder if they have something else, like school or an idea for a career.
We sat near Brandon's family at US Nats this year. My memory is that it was not a great day and not a nice reaction from his team. I really really hope he is ok.
But I will remember his big big jumps.
I saw Brandon skate in Cleveland at US Nationals and Four Continents in Vancouver in 2009. I really liked his programs and his attack.
I liked him too.
I will miss him. I always thought he would be the "next" Tom Z Men's Nat'l Champ (TM) But instead it was Bradley, then Aaron. (and of course Abbott 3 more times-but Abbott had moved by then)
It's kind of ironic....by all reports back around 09 Mroz was Tom Z's favorite male skater. But others went on to win, not Mroz. Kind of makes me wonder what happened- at least Tom Z thought he held promise.

"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
Why would he do that? To take a year off or to skate for another country?
