Two part poll:
Realistically, do you think Kimmie Meissner will get one of the two US spots for2009 Worlds? My inkling is no, not with Caroline, Mirai, and Rachael to contend with. Perhaps one of them could crack under the pressure, but I doubt that two of them would (barring Kimmie drastically improving her skating this year).
Also sadly enough, I have a feeling that if she doesn't podium in this year's Nationals, she will retire from competitive skating before the 2009 - 2010 season. Just my gut feeling. Does anyone else think that this would be a likely possibility?
