    What does re-opening look like?

    I went to one last weekend. I think it’s near you. 😊 It being Mothers Day, and me being dumb enough to go mid day, it was pretty crowded. But the outside waiting line (with yellow lines drawn at 6 foot intervals) moved pretty quickly and people were good about being socially distant. You must...

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    I have absolutely no problem with the fact that you disagree with me. Nor do I disagree that the ability to work well with someone would be super important in forming a pair - just as it in marriage, friendship, and work relationships. I just don’t think it’s right to anonymously spread rumors...

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    So you think it’s okay - the kind of thing that would win you a lot of friends or a loyal pairs partner, say - to come onto a public forum, imply that you have inside knowledge of all these people, and anonymously trash Alexa for being a difficult to work with diva?

    U.S. Men 2019-20 season - news & updates

    Is there a reason why people are discussing Chinese men, pairs, and dance in the US men’s thread?

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    Sure, and not sure if your comment is directed to me, but the poster I was responding to simply asked if she was the only one who doesn’t think Alexa is better than the other 3 “top” US pair girls. Some people agreed with her. I disagree based on what I as a very casual fan observe in competition.

    Chris Knierim to retire - Alexa to seek new partner

    All of them have good points and everyone has different opinions, but I think overall Alexa has better skills than Tarah, Haven, and Ashley. She has much better skating skills, presentation, jumps, and use of her core in lifts than Tarah, who strikes me as the weakest of the top pair ladies...

    2019-20 Canadian ladies news and updates

    It might be a kindness - I was rooting for her to do well, and she did great! But she is super inexperienced and junior/senior worlds are super high pressure.

    U.S. Men 2019-20 season - news & updates

    In a season where a lot of guys have had ups and downs due to both usual and unusual circumstances, I’m not sure how useful it is to look at average scores. Shoma, Jason, Vincent, and Kevin have all had unique (though very different) circumstances affecting their performance this season. So...

    Feb 13, 2020: Hersh article about possible ISU changes

    You do realize Jason just won a silver ISU championship medal at 4CCs, right? And that he is currently #4 on the season’s best list, behind only Nathan, Yuzuru, and Kevin Aymoz (whose SB from the GPF is about 1 point higher than Jason’s)?

    The Skating Lesson 2019/2020

    Ex-singer here. Without going into boring detail :), I don’t think Jonathan is running much risk. He speaks very well, the recaps are basically done in a relaxed conversational setting, and he’s not straining to be heard over a lot of background noise. The singers you saw in those documentaries...

    The Skating Lesson 2019/2020

    Thanks for your thoughts. I definitely agree that Nathan has outscored Yuzu lately. I know TSL like both Nathan and Yuzu. I think their theory is that Nathan is overscored on PCS and GOE and that if both guys skate clean programs the judges will score Yuzu higher. on PCS and GOE. I like Nathan...

    The Skating Lesson 2019/2020

    Huh - I’m curious as to why? I often don’t agree with them but I don’t remember thinking they were super off base about either Yuzu or Wakaba. Then again, I was half asleep when I listened.😉 What seemed off-base to you?

    The Skating Lesson 2019/2020

    Having listened to it myself, I think your memory is kind of selective. The entire recap was 1-1/2 + hours, and they discussed all four disciplines, spending a lot of time on men’s and pairs and about 15 minutes each on ladies and ice dance. Yes they did discuss Yuzu for about 10 minutes, and...
