    What a strange remark. Granted, Kimmie needs a little more mascara to give her eyes greater conviction and feeling, but still...

    Here she is with evil puppet-master Pam (as opposed to good puppet-master Robyn).

    Kimmie will win it all with a quad axel and new Level 4 mascara!

    Sasha will come in third because of brown mascara, which we all know is not as fabulous as black mascara....

    ..Michelle will come in last because she left her mascara at home and was only able to borrow cheap Wet 'n Wild mascara dissappointing all her fans ( Michelle how could you?!)

    I agree with Brad's remark about Kimmie. Kimmie looks like she's just going through the motions. Even though she landed all of her jumps at Nats, there was no spark of happiness in her eyes. Emily on the other hand SPARKLES on the ice. I downloaded a program from Easterns (or sectionals, before nats) and Emily took such a hard fall on a jump in the middle of her program. Her feet seemed to miss the ice and she landed on her side and you can practictically hear the thud as her hip connected to the ice. She got right back up and one second later had the biggest smile on her face (which extended to her eyes) and was selling the next section of music and nailed the next two jumps. I know that if it were me, my eyes would have been tearing from pain with that kind of fall and most other skaters would not have composed themselves. I think that girl is a very special skater and person to be able to do that.

    Also Emily's puppetmaster is Nathan Birch, not eville Robin Wagner.

    But at the last minute Michelle finds her artificial lashes and wins in a rout!

    Not to be outdone, Tanith grabs the eye shadow...

    I quite agree. Emily has a kind of innocent joyfulness about her skating, win or lose -- like she's just tickled to pieces to be out there doing what she loves.

    This is not, however, a putdown of Kimmie. Kimmie has plenty of time to develop her own on-ice personality (after she gets that triple Axel down pat, LOL.)

    Beautiful pic of Michelle mathman.

    I agree Shizuka may does have a good chance. I am not counting her out at all this season.

    Yes and Nathan is no puppetmaster because the Hughes parents know how to pick coaches for their daughters. They also know how to manage the coaches because Robin did not reveal her dark side until Sarah had moved on. Until then she was a doting surrogate mother.

    I don't think that it's the coaches who are great but rather that the Hughes raised daughters who respect authority and actually do what their coaches tell them to do and work hard. I also think that the Hughes don't get involved with the coach-student relationship. If Sarah or Emily had trouble with their coaches, I think the Hughes parents would tell those kids to work it out rather than get involved and jump to another coach. Contrast that with Sasha's mother who uproots the whole family just to switch coaches for Sasha and as soon as things get difficult, right away they're moving on to the next coach.

    Robin only became eville when Sarah stopped training hard and then quit the sport. I can only imagine what kind of exchanges occurred between those two to cause Sarah to completely cut off contact from her coach. I imagine they were a lot worse than the crap that happened with Sasha. Though I believe that everything went down the way it did with Sasha because Robin was so frustrated that she finally had a talented skater to work with yet that skater didn't want to work hard. I agree with Robin that Sasha just doesn't want to do what she needs to do to win. Sasha would rather skate to rehashed favorites and stay with her signature moves rather than try different things with her skating.

    Well hey, we can say that as fans but would she really be better off? She's still 2nd in the rankings even skating to "rehashed favorites," and could possibly get to first if she would put some feeling into her performance and lay off the little mistakes. Hey, the judges seem to love her...still.
