    Now when this season is almost over,what are your aftertastes and memories about 2010-2011.Go ahead!Go wild!Go bold and share your sacred thoughts and opinions :)
    Here are some of mine non-professional-arm-chair-fan humble opinions
    Russian Federation preparing to host 2011 Worlds within one month and three Zueva/Shpilband teams on the World's Dance Podium /you can correct me on this one if i'm wrong/
    Kerr/Kerr and Faiella/Scali retirment
    Pechalat/Bourzat fourth place.Even with the fall they deserved the bronze.
    New teams with potential:
    Pairs-Volosozhar/Trankov wining silver medal.
    Ice Dance: Khokhlova/Andreev
    Nice surprise:
    Savchenko/ Szolkowy ,Davis/White and Miki Ando's being the new World Champions
    Patrick Chan talked less :),skated his best and showed what he is capable of. Tessa and Scot got FD that suits their age and talent.

    I will likely edit this later or add to it as I think of more things.

    My favorite memories of this season:
    -Rachael Flatt winning 2 GP medals and qualifying to the GPF
    -Alissa Czisny, period
    -Mirai at 4CC
    -Dornbush surprises us and wins the silver!
    -Ryan Bradley's victory
    -The Shibs
    -Takahiko Kozuka's breakthrough
    -I/K...I didn't really know who they were before this year, and they are awesome!
    -Russian Worlds
    -Rudi Swiegers at 4CC. Made me feel really great
    -Mary Beth Marley, Courtney Hicks, Adelina Sotnikova, Ira Vannut...all for different reasons
    -Seeing live skating for the first time at Skaters Care!
    -Charlotte Lichtman and Dean Copley. Actually, all the junior dance teams.
    -Meryl Davis and Charlie White being able to refer to themselves as "2011 World Champions" forevermore :)

    Memorable Events:
    - Of course, the cancelling of the worlds in Japan and rescheduling to Moscow
    - Alissa Csizny finally getting some consistency
    - Daisuke Takahashi's blade coming unscrewed at the World Champs
    - Oda doing too many combos again at the Worlds Champs
    - Chan and Sawyer's magical LPs, finishing 1-2 at Canadian Nationals
    - Bradley winning the US Nats and going to Worlds, along with semi-newbies Miner and Dornbush
    - Pechalat and Bourzat falling in the Worlds FD
    - Virtue/Moir's debut of their FD at Worlds - awesome debut btw!!
    - Patrick Chan's winning SC with four? or was it three? falls, but redeeming himself in haters' eyes (I hope) after winning the World Championships with no falls
    - The new team of Volosozhar/Trankov generally kicking butt and taking silver at Worlds
    - Meagan Duhamel breaking Eric Radford's nose, hahaha, no offense to Meagan
    - Shibutanis winning bronze at worlds (probably the most surprising thing for me)
    - The arrival of Kanako Murakami on the senior scene

    My favorite moment of the season would have to be Meryl and Charlie winning Worlds!! I'm so thrilled for them!

    Another special moment would be Y/C's freeskate at Nationals, it was so moving. And then their great performance/placement at Worlds!

    I was :fragile: for P/B at Worlds and equally for Jeremy Abbott at Nationals.
