I was out of the office on Friday & couldn't post it then. Apologies if someone else duplicates this info elsewhere...but it's too good to ignore.
Last Friday, during his daily 'analysis stint' on the local Wash, DC, NBC affiliate (around 6:45 am every day, during the Games), Michael Weiss mentioned that he is looking forward to touring with SOI come this fall. At the very end, he snuck in this shocker: "Sasha Cohen and a lot of other Torino skaters will also be in the show."
I rewound my tape, to make sure that I heard the right thing - He definitely said "Stars on Ice" and not "Champions on Ice."
Didn't any other DC-area viewers catch Michael's announcement?
This would mean that Sasha is definitely retiring from eligible skating, right? You read it here first.
