    Michelle's Announcement

    Michelle has announced her plans for this season. Unfortuantely I do not know how to link, but you can go to www. usfsa.org and read the article.

    Here's the link... Good for her... She's a role model, a champion, and a shining example of all the good competitive sports are for children, teens and adults. I have nothing but the utmost respect for her and all that she's given to this sport.

    Skaters come and go and skating goes on, but I think the skating world will miss her the most...

    It's wonderful news! Michelle has already had the rumored surgery and a full recovery is expected. She's going to school full time and seems for the first time to have a real direction for her studies (political science and international relations).

    (No mention of her Denver-based boyfriend, but that's our Michelle -- keep 'em guessing!)

    about time we heard something from the camp. Seems like everything is going well for her. I think she's likely finished with competitive skating.

    But many of the rumours/speculations were right on!!

    Thanks for the head's up, Kittyjakes.

    To post a link, just go to the page that you want to link to, copy the URL from your address bar, and then paste it into the Golden Skate dialogue box.

    The vBulletinboard software will do the rest automatically.

    If she has a boyfriend better to keep that on the down low. I know I'd personally hate to be exposed like that.

    But speculation can sometimes be worse than fact. At least she's not Lindsay Lohan.

    BF is a public figure in his own right, so I don't think he cares.

    I know if it were me....if it were me...if it...i...

    (oops, I kind if lost my train of thought there)

    I wonder if she plans to do any training in the Denver area?

    Guess I'm out of the loop. Anyone want to share who the boyfriend is speculated to be??

    Michelle's boyfriend is Christian Anschutz, son of a prominate Denver real estate developer who is worth billions... his dad is also the president of an ultra conservative group who is famous for leading the charge to ban gay marriage.

    I do not know where Christian's politics stack up, what his beliefs are, and his voting record. I just know he's Michelle's billionaire boyfriend.

    ah, so that would explain it. But I take it this is pure speculation. Unless anyone here has seen the two of them get intimate, we can't know this for sure.

    I'd venture she'd need to recover from her surgery first. She seems like she's beginning to get serious about college, though, and I think she'll find that once she gets deep into her studies she may lose interest in competitive skating...she may do some shows or skate recreationally, though...

    I was at the Denver airport the other day and saw two of the big posters that Phil Anschutz' public service foundation put up as part of it's "Pass It On" campaign. (I think Anschutz owns the land that the airport in built on.)

    The two I saw were Christopher Reeve and Benjamin Franklin. So quite natually I dashed all over the airport to see if his Michelle poster in the same series was there.

    I didn't find it (I think it was up at Times Square for a while, though).... Missed my connection... Oh well, when you're a Michelle fan, what can you do?

    Thanks KW. Let's hope the son doesn't share the politics of the father. Guess we really don't know too much about Michelle's politics either... but one would think she'd lean toward being more liberal than her possible future father-in-law!

    I hope she will continue to train some while in Denver ... just in case.

    oh well, who cares about political leanings or whether MK is liberal or conservative?

    Besides, anything MK's done to suggest she's more liberal? I wouldn't assume one leans a certain way unless they've done something that would suggest so. (and I don't think hanging out with Bush would suggest she's conservative, either...)
