    Skating Holiday Gifts?

    Hello everyone!

    I was wondering, aside from Olympic tickets, what is atop everyone's skating holiday gift wish list this year? Went to Vancouver, Salt Lake and Torino, but between the gay rights issues, visas, general difficulty in traveling and hotels, Sochi seems like a far fetched dream for many.

    I was also wondering, as the parent of a young skater, if anyone has worked with this company that offers various Sasha Cohen coaching experiences.

    www.thuzio.com/sasha-cohen.html

    Yes, I know the coaching is fairly expensive, but it would be a one-time thing. I would probably gift it with Sasha recording a video message.

    Sarah Hughes is around the NYC area. I'm surprised she doesn't do these types of things. I see her Instagramming skating related things all the time. Ditto for Johnny Weir.

    Wow, that would be a dream gift. I saw Sasha interviewed about doing stuff through Thuzio so it is definitely for real.

    Sasha is also making designer skates, isnt she?

    I wonder how long that $1,250 is- is that an hour of coaching? Multiple sessions?
    I'm surprised she only gets 5-10k for corporate speaking though.

    $100 sounds really reasonable for a video message.

    Wow, is Tara that much more of a "name" than Sasha for her appearances etc. to be that much more expensive?

    (Also wondering if you have to buy Sasha's ticket as well as paying $5000 to have her sit next to you at a competition )
