    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    ^^ Semantics, semantics. :lol: The fact remains, whether or not it was seen as an emergency or can be defined as an 'emergency' well after-the-fact, it was not a dire life-threatening emergency, nor was it a sudden injury of emergency proportions. Moreover, as @honey accurately points out...

    U.S. Pairs 2019-20 season - News & Updates, Part X

    Right. It makes no sense to include Brian Johnson on anyone's random 'short list' for partnering with Alexa! Brian just partnered with Jessica over a year ago, and magic happened. They are a team on-the-rise, so floating his name would be fairly ridiculous. OTOH, perhaps @skylark intended her...

    And neither do you! :rolleyes: :duh:

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    ^^ That sounds very probable. And so the speculation continues. :watch: Your observation has made me do a turnabout in my thinking: Even though Brandon Frazier is exceedingly loyal to Haven, their season went kaput after a decent start. When drastic things happen, sometimes unexpected decisions...

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    But when did Harley split with Alexandrovskaya? Harley is certainly tall enough to be a good match for Alexa. However, Harley would have citizenship issues, and I seriously doubt Alexa is interested in switching her country representation at this late date. Therefore, a highly unlikely match...

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    To each their own. There's no need for your feathers to get ruffled by my response to your suggestion. :drama: A lot of people are throwing out names indiscriminately. I personally do not see Nate as a good match-up for Alexa, but then what do I know about matching up pairs partners. :p ;)...

    U.S. Pairs 2019-20 season - News & Updates, Part X

    Exactly what @Michalle said above. The Russian skater with U.S. citizenship (and a former partner of Zabijako's), as noted in the other thread, is Sasha Zaboev. There are links in the other thread to some of Zaboev's on-ice performances and training practices with Zabijako (posted on Youtube by...

    Catching up with Evan Lysacek on the 10th anniversary of his Olympic Gold

    ^^ Evan can not be confused with being charismatic. But he is earnest, hardworking and appealing in his own right, despite the put-downs. He never drew me in with his skating, but it's clear how hard he worked and how much he enjoyed competing and trying to improve. His stint on Dancing with...

    Royalty Thread#12 Tiaras, Palaces & Gilded Cages

    Duchess Kate obviously didn't get that particular royal protocol memo: :p https://us.hellomagazine.com/imagenes/royalty/2018103064027/kate-middleton-prince-william-coach-core-essex-engagement/0-301-802/kate-middleton-smiling-essex-a.jpg...

    Northern Hemisphere Flu Shot/Coronavirus (threads merged)

    https://www.happypreppers.com/coronavirus.html ** Anti-bacterial soaps aren't any better than plain soaps. :eek: The above intensive prep list article indicates that hand sanitizers tend to be anti-bacterial, which is not very helpful. Obtaining or making anti-viral hand sanitizers is better...

    Chinese Skating News, Pt. 3: A long & winding road to Beijing 2022

    There were updates in the American news yesterday that spread of the CV to the U.S. (and thus, globally) is seen as inevitable, and that everyone should be taking precautions and preparing. :( :saint: https://www.happypreppers.com/coronavirus.html...

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    Chris almost lost his wife to that strange illness in 2016. That alone speaks volumes, along with how hard they both fought to come back. The rest is their business. Good luck to them both. ♥

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    Once again, over and above other downside factors, I don't see Nyman leaving Sappenfield. And I don't see Alexa returning to Sappenfield and Colorado either.

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    ^^ Why is it 'too bad' though. Names are being thrown out like spare parts here, and I doubt it works like that in reality, i.e., a partnership happening on the basis of every able-bodied male skater fans can conjure up. :p Plus, there are a lot of things to consider besides citizenship issues...
