    I can see I've got some stuff to respond to

    Actually, FYI I knew of the entry BEFORE it was posted here. I just never bothered to read it until now.

    I'll tell you this: I can't stand men's skating, pairs skating or ice dance. That leaves the ladies behind. And out of those I usually will only talk about the top Senior Ladies as I have limited (or none) interest in the up-and-comers. Not to mention I'm just one who used to be a little tired of Kwan winning everything. I didn't like anyone in particular. And of course, her crazy, rabid fans had to jump to conclusions and think I'm one of those little teenybopper Sasha fans. But what is one to do? I fired my guns and I'm sticking to them. Too bad. You guys just keep believing whatever you want.

    I still post here, but in reality I really don't like figure skating nearly as much as I once did (after SLC). But I enjoy sizing up the competition for the upcoming Olympics, and I think they'll be a blast (the only one- the summer games IMO are much more exciting). But after that- I think I'm outta here, personally. No reason to stay here when I really don't like any of the skaters to start with.

    ETA: Actually I've been looking and it seems like most of the time "Skatefan4life" or someone else starts a thread on SC's journal. How many have I started? I think maybe around 3 or 4 (and mostly in the past, too). How many has everyone else started? More than I can count. Now here's the shocker question (are you all ready? Drum roll please): why am I getting all the credit- credit I don't deserve? I think you all are just picking on me, as usual. I'm the easy target here, of course. Keep firing, but don't act all surprised if I fire back.

    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.
    I was hoping to get some news on Cohen's programs from her entry. (And while I'm at it, any news on any other programs that I may have missed?) Instead, I see how she's got a new house, "improved her tan", etc. I could care less!

    ETA again: Why would one be a fan of a skater and not say so? If I was a fan you bet I would have said so. In that thread where that poster was complaining about everyone "hating" Cohen (and I didn't agree- if that doesn't say I'm not a fan of hers I don't know what does) many came out and said they enjoyed her skating. That's fine by me. I can't even say that- if I did I'd by lying big time. I think both she and Kwan are pretty boring at this point. See how much I enjoy ice skating?

    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.
    This may come as a shock to many, but I'm actually NOT a dog person! On the contrary, I'm not much of an animal person at all.

    (Thanks for the compliment, by the way.)

    So how did I think of my username? To be quite honest, I don't really know myself- I think it was inspired by that drink which happens to be picture (b) in MM's post. It was quite a random choice of mine, actually. As far as my personality it means basically nothing.

    Being able to buy a house is a huge milestone for a 20 years old young lady. How many 20 years old girls out there have the financial ability to do so? In skating world for the past 10 years, probably only Michelle Kwan could afford and indeed purchased her home when she was 20. Michelle recently has her new rink grand opening, I guess Sasha also wants to show the skating community that she is also financially well established. A little competition on and off the ice, it's healthy though.

    If you read most of the Sasha's journals and her book, you'll find she is a very relaxed about every thing. Even the entries before she left TT or Robin, you wouldn't see much details about how her skating went to the way she did not like. There is no need for her to get the lfe too narrow, and just think about skating every day. As for new music, how many Olympic contenders already decided and released the info? It's really up to themselves about when to let the music decision announced.

    OT

    MM- that picture you had there. I cropped it and I'm interested in making a custom avatar out of that image. But I can't figure out how to add it- I see only the standard avatars. So can you use only those avatars, or can you use your own as well?

    Oh, OK that explains it all: you can't stand ALL kind of skating, except for SOME lady's skating, you're not interested in aspects of personal lives of skaters, but you're a regular at the skating site to give an earful of some foolish snarks to fellow posters. (Well, at least Kwan's no longer winning it all, which must make life more bearable to you) You're just oozing with sophistication, RD, not sounding like a teenybopper, but rather like someone who had too much of a drink, that "inspired" your user name. Get real, Red Dog, as nonsensical as you are, you've got no leg to stand to teach anyone how to maintain an on-line journal, or to maintain a fan site.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Bitter much? :frown2:

    ETA: it's funny how you criticize me for "snarking at fellow posters", when you're doing exactly that right now. Coincidence? I think not.

    Maybe you're just mad because you finally discovered I'm not a Sasha fan while you're a big uberfan?

    Oh, while I'm at it, please enlighten me to where I was teaching one how to maintain a fan site or an online journal. Unless I'm mistaken, I simply said I didn't care about what she wrote. Perhaps it's you that should go back and not read so much into things...

    I Am Always Suspicious.....

    I am always suspicious of people who don't like animals, especially dogs. They are GOD'S gifts to mankind. I think it is very sweet of Sasha to take the time to "speak" to her on-line fans about anything.

    RD - Don't let em get you down. All you have to do is explain the rationale behind your negative obsession of Kwan and your constant use of pressure.

    I for one do not believe the nonfans of Kwan are Kwan haters but I do think they are not happy with Kwan gushers. JMO.

    I've explained my views on pressure on another thread. In essence, pressure is how one uses it.

    Thanks for the link!

    I would think that Sasha´s website including the journals are meant for her fans and those that are fans (especially younger ones), definetely are interested in little tidbits about her doings. I admire skaters that make the effort for their fans.

    I've just returned to California from Vietnam. A popular delicacy over there is dog meat. People do have dogs as a pet, but if you don't watch over your dog, watch out; they go missing easily.

    Like you, I'm an animal lover too. I particularly love cows. Yum, yum.

    i'm a sasha fan and i don't care that she got a tan. I'd rather know what her programs are too! I heared she's keeping Dark Eyes as her short.

    Oh Red Dog, are they picking on you AGAIN??? I think some of them do it because they like you. I will stick up for you. STOP PICKING ON RED DOG!!!

    Red Dog, I have always enjoyed your posts and when you find an interesting topic it is always filled with good conversation.

    Now, you have to admit it is funny when they accuse you of being a Sasha fan and you got all bent out of shape. .............and I think that is the reason they pick on you.
