    Thumbs down

    It sure is fun to watch the guy play the sax and keyboards while Brian is SKATING. We see him do some crossovers, a jump set up, then back to the band again. I enjoy Frankie's backup singers' choreography, too, but geeeeez..................... :-(

    That was great! Thanks, Dee.

    You know who I really liked? Caryn Kadavy.

    Good to see Lang and Tcherneshev again.

    I think I will go back to my Yuka Sato avatar!

    Here is where you can write to Musselman's Apple Sauce to thank them for sponsoring the show.

    And here is where you can write to Smucker's Jams amd Jellies.

    Speaking of Apple Sauce, I always wished Stars on Ice would do Disney's Johnny Appleseed -- the world's greatest animated short feature -- with Kristi Yamaguchi as Johnny and Scott Hamilton as the Guardian Angel.

    Tonichelle - now that you mentioned Linda, it definitely could have been her. Did she have long or short hair when she was coaching back when?
    Thanks

    I thought of you when I saw Yuka and then wondered why you got rid of your avatar.

    I think she had short hair, but that was 20 years ago, and my nearly 4 year old little mind at the time didn't find that info relevant

    I just realized this weekend that January marks 20 years of me being obsessed with this sport... time flies!

    The lady is Jeanne Martin, she is/has been an agent for many skaters, and is a very good friend of Brian's. I believe she is the one who helped put together the Skate for Life benefit show for the Ara Parseghian Foundation back in the 1990s. A very nice lady.

    Did you guys catch the USFS ad for U.S. Nationals. While they were showing Mirai Nagasu the voiceover said, will last year's champions defend their titles? Or will a new generation take center stage?

    So now there is a new generation behind Mirai that we are supposed to be on the lookout for?

    I think they're just trying to hype the Nats. If there is indeed a new generation moving up, I have no idea about it. Right now, the main threats are the Top Four from last year, and possibly Meissner as spoiler, if she gets her act together.
