    Yay! Thanks Maureen for the update on Emily - she's my son's favorite skater & he's refused to watch skating until she returns to the ice, so this is great news!

    I'm also glad to hear that she's healthy, on the ice & gearing up for next season because say what you will about TaDa - you can't say she's boring & that's a good thing!

    Since I was unable to skate for the second part of the year, I decided to take an extra course. So, instead of four courses, I took five. I thought this would be the perfect plan for lightening my school
    Great plan, Emily!

    I'm so glad that she has confirmed that she is doing TEB.

    yay! I'm also very excited to see her back on the scene! As much as I really like Kimmie, I was routing 100% for Emily at the 2007 Nats. SOOOOO close, too ...

    Anyways, Welcome Back Emily!!

    Nice message from a very special young lady. Will be great to have her back in the ranks!! Wonder which "cut" from Gone With the Wind convinced her?

    I am glad Emily is injury free and training for the season. There was so much speculation on the boards about her sitting the coming season out and concentrating on school. I wonder if she will lighten her course load in the future so she can train and prepare for Worlds and try to make the team for Vancouver. Can't wait to see her LP.

    I really hope the best for her this season. I (personally) would have liked to watch her earlier in the season, so that it allows the skater to know what to work on.

    I wonder how her conditioning is and if she sort of worked on her jumps. Like maybe spinning faster in the air (because she gets a lot of height, but can't rotate enough to cleanly land them..). And even though I absolutely enjoy her fight out there in every competition and I like her personality, she skates very heavy on the ice.

    I was watching her during the 2005 Easterns (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DGvllNojrw) and her straight line step sequence is the best I've seen from her!

    I'm really not quite sure how she'll do this season, but I enjoy her skating so much and her personality that I don't really care how she does. However, it would be really great if she has worked hard on possibly, possibly working on her jumping techniques and thinking about difficult jump combinations or sequences.

    Glad she's heading back to the rink. I don't think she will make the world team with the competition being what it is (plus only having 2 slots) but she should definitely try.

    Gone with the Wind

    Here's hoping she fares better with this music than Victoria Volchova did...

    The music has several swells to grab the audience. It should be easy for a skater to plan a program to it. I just hope she doesn't try to be Scarlett, or I will go hungry again.

    Emily has to beat 97.4 points to win over Alyssa. or do they skate a Final for the two groups?
