    because I am also starving for info from many skaters. Then again no skin off my back, if that's all Sasha wants to divulge at this time that's her business I won't lose any sleep over that.
    I feel exactly the same way you do.

    I wish she would tell us something---the waiting is going to drive me nuts.

Lucky for Citizen, most people who see that ad have no idea who Sasha Cohen is.

Instead, I believe people should say what they think, but say it respectfully.
    I was just making a suggestion. It just seems like the threads that turn into "Michelle VS. Sasha" discussions and vice versa, all look the same after a while, which seems pointless, also. Believe me, I've got a backbone, but there are times where you just got to pick your battles. I guess, I'm just asking people to think before they post. We're probably both right.

    OK, not everyone is ensorcelled by her charm. But she never loses her edge.

    Glad that Sasha is NOT a chasm!

    So you think of Sasha as a mountain top? I guess it can get kind of cold way up there, but so can it in a chasm. All things considered, I guess a mountain top would be my preference -- and probably Sasha's.

    Man, if someone were to talk about me that way, I would run away crying my eyes out!

    To me, it's completely a matter of personal taste. It's inevitable: Some dig her style, others don't. I don't hold it against anyone. Otherwise, she wouldn't have any fans (or non-fans, for that matter).

    As much as I don't particularly like to say this, I find myself feeling the same way you do. I think there was a point where I was trying to like something about her, but I just couldn't. I never considered myself a fan of hers though (unlike what you all have been saying).

    One thing I used to like- ironically, the same thing that turned many skating fans away from her- was her attitude. She never held back, and always went for it (even though she would fall once or twice). She had this sort of, fire if you will about her. Now it's all but gone. Now I see her and I'm just bored flat. Even Kwan's Bolero was more exciting to watch than Cohen last year. I know I'm in true "non-fan" mode when I watch for the thrill of competition instead of wanting to see a particular skater. I hear her give the same "I want to skate my best" stuff you hear a lot of others say. (Except for Nationals, where she wasn't afraid to admit that she wanted to win.)

    Something in me wants an upstart to win next year. Enough of the veterans- JMO!

    Sorry Math, I never know when you're just joking about Sasha. It's no secret here on the board of how you feel about Michelle and what a threat Sasha is to her so that's why I question whether you were being mean or not!

    Hey, Dee, if only it were that easy. I could say something bad about Sasha, Irina, Shizuka, Carolina, Fumie, Miki, Joannie and Kimmie, and then Michelle would win a gold medal. Unfortunately, no matter what I say, they still have to show up and skate for it!

    About charm, that's in the heart of the charmee, or something like that. To me, Michelle is like a candle, Sasha is like a firecracker. Michelle is a warm glow, Sasha is a bright explosion.

    No wait. I mean Irina is a bright explosion...oh, ever mind.

    I don't know any of these young ladies in real life. Of the skaters that I have personally met and talked to, the most charming is Aaron Parcham. Also Ben Agosto and Tanith Belbin. Tanith has that gift (like Bill Clinton) of being able to go down a line of well-wishers and make evey person in the line the sole focus of her interest, at least for a second or two. That's very charming.
