    Sasha, podium, possibly gold.

    Best of luck to Emily Hughes! I am sure she will make us all very proud to have her represent our country.

    Ditto! Fly with your beautiful body across the ice and just for Mathman and Idle--hey, I'm getting into it too--smile with those big flirty eyes while you're at it.

    the most important thing, if you can do it- try to GET OUT OF SARAH'S SHADOW! Make a name for yourself! Stand out!

    It will be an interesting Olympics for Emily. Already she has two labels:

    "2002 Olympic Champion Sarah Hughes' little sister"
    "Michelle Kwan's replacement"

    Now let's see Emily make her own story with her wonderful skating!! Go for it, Emily!

    Do us proud, Emily! I have no doubt that she will!

    I just hope that people will come to appreciate her as a talented skater in her own right.

    No kidding. She'll have to EARN that respect. I hope she can just really put on a good performance that she can be proud of, even if she ends up in 15th place.

    The east is having a record breaking blizzard right, now, of all times. I hope Emily can get a flight out!

    That's certainly not a way you would want to start your senior career at the international level. On the other hand, though, most skaters at the same point of their skating carrer would need to start by actively trying to make their names known, even under the new judging system. Fortunately or unfortunately, Emily has skipped that stage before her major debut. I hope she will turn this to her advantage, bring the best she can to the game and become her own girl.

    If I were the Hughes', I'd get in a snow plow and drive out of state unil I found a clear spot and catch a flight there!

    Good luck to her. I hope she makes it safely.

    That's not very good. I hear it's a really bad storm and a lot of cancellations. The Internationl airport in our town is swamped with flights diverted from the East coast of the U.S. There are so many flights at the airport that the Red Cross has the school buses ready to transfer the people to hotels. I hope that Emily can get out in time.
