    Well, not much info besides the fact that she's got a new house, a tan, and more book signings. Can you say "blah" any more blatantly? :indiff:

    When she reveals her Programs for the new season, then there might actually be something to talk about.

    P.S. Not trying to condemn her or anything for revealing such info, it's great for the fans, but nothing groundbreaking or anything. I notice (and this might be good or bad depending on how you see it) that her site really is more of a resource on her person and her activities rather than her skating. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the way I see it.

    I think she is very smart that she did not detail how she trains for the 2006. I guess Sasha and her coach have the plan about how to get her ready. Her journal let us feel that they are on target. She has some off ice training that she should be responsible to finish before they start the intensive on ice training. There is no need for Sasha to let her competitors know how she does the training. It's better to keep it secreat. At L.A. area. there are so many rinks, but all the top ladies prefer to have their own places to train.

    Yes, at that age, the tan is vital! It's a sign of senility and warped prorities to worry about things like cancer and skin damage, let alone figure skating! :sheesh: You can ask both my daughters. They were born with a lovely "tan" and they still agonize over whether it's enough. :banging:

    That is a good thing. It would get her focused for the upcoming Olympic Season. A lot is at stake this time around.

    At the same time, there is no need for her to tell us that she has a new house, etc. (it's irrelevant) but she does anyway.

    The only thing that she "needs" to reveal to the fans is the new Programs for next season. The top skaters also tend to wait until close to the start of the new season to do that. There's still a couple of months left on that front.

    You see it exactly right. This section of the site is called "Sasha's journal," not "Sasha's practices reports." There's a bit information on everything, only one mentioning on "working on a tan," which meant to be a joke, and I won't call buying a new house and participating in a skating show "blah,", but that's MPHO.

    There are two full paragrahps about her doing off ice training, and working on other aspects of preparaions to the season with Nicks -- it's all skating related.

    I agree with Registered. This is a fun little "blog" where Sasha fans can read about their favorite gal.

    On the serious side, I think this kind of interaction with fans is a good thing for figure skating generally. The majority audience for the sport is young teens and families. Catering to the fan base helps the whole sport, IMHO.

    It's blah in terms of the skating part (and, personally, blah as a whole!). They may be fun tidbits for her fans to gobble up, but ultimately it has absolutely nothing to do with what she's planning to do next season.

    But Red Dog, that's why non-fans don't go there. It's a fan site. Sasha's fans do care about stuff like that

    Agreed.

    I check her fan forum from time to time for news updates and often times I'll see threads like "She hasn't written in 2 weeks!" "Oh no! I hope everything is alright!" It's quite funny.

    I know. I'm aware of that. I'm just saying what I think.

    ETA: I wouldn't exactly call an official site a "fan site" (although obviously it would be a place where fans might go to check on updates) but this is just my opinion. The only thing that would make it seem so, I suppose, is the journal section of the website. I've nothing against her giving these tidbits, but personally since her entry was posted on this forum I was expecting something of more substance (since this is not a Sasha forum and I doubt a lot of people here care about her tan or her house, as you can tell by some of the responses ).

    Nya -- nya, someone hijacked Dog's privileges of notifying this forum on Sasha's journal updates. Not to worry, RD, next time you'll beat'em to it, an uberfan, as you are.

    Awe...come on Red Dog. If you see an obvious link to a teen fan site that you're not interested in, why read it? Why take the time to comment about it? I think you're more of a "fan" than you claim to be.

    On a separate note, how / why did you choose your handle of "Red Dog?" As a dog person myself, inquiring minds want to know. BTW, I totally enjoy your posts.
