    Regarding SA - Hicks is making a strong case (thus far) for herself to be chosen and it remains to be seen what the status of Czisny's recovery is. But, I think the TBA spot will come down to the two of them.

    But, the usual strategy of SA is to send a skater who can not possibly beat the American champ?!

    I don't think Courtney would beat Ashley, honestly. She's a great jumper and put out a high TES, but she will get docked in PCS.

    Looking at the roster, she is part of the group that will likely finish 3-6:Tuktamysheva, Radionova, Meite. I think she can beat Helgesson, Gedevanishvili, Marchei and Zhang.

    Any vids of Rachael's competition in Colorado. I hope she comes back, no matter what her chances.

    Christina Gao is scheduled to debut her FS to the Angels and Demons soundtrack, choreographed by Tom Dickson, at the Cranberry Open this weekend. Yasmin Siraj (preparing for the JGP in Latvia), Kiri Baga, and Haley Dunne are also listed to compete.

    Love love love Butterfly Lovers! I'm sure Caroline will play it beautifully. I just got good memories of Chen Lu now.

    Same, though the bar is thus set high for those who remember. Here's to hoping she makes it "her own"

    I love the Butterfly Lovers choice. But POTO is my most hated warhorse of all, it would take a clean performance by Patrick Chan with Quads for this music to be bearable, and Caroline won't be doing that for sure.

    Thrilled for Cesario but really surprised. I wonder if Hicks will go back to the JGP after all.

    Thrilled for Cesario! And is she already dumping Titanic? Great as I wasn't so impressed about it at Liberty.

    I feel bad for Hicks though.

    Hicks is pretty far down the subs list, unlike Cesario

    Very interesting. Happy for Cesario, but the mind wanders to the grassy knoll...

    Would Hicks have been a threat to Wagner?
    Did Csizny sekretly admit she had no chance this season?

    Glad it's not Csizny, would have been happy for any of the other contenders.

    great music choices for caroline zhang, especially the free skate.

    hope she will have a great season and will not get robbed as at last seasons nationals sp. as i cannot imagine her going beyond the 2014 season, i hope she will get a satisfying end to her career. and if she moves on, she will make me a very happy fan

    i think it will be very important for her to be really on her game at skate america with great international scores, and us federation realizing that. fingers crossed.

    I was a Cesario fan before it was trendy. Glad she's finally starting to get her due.
