Glad you guys enjoyed the report. I had as much fun writing it as well to share with you guys.
Now to answer some questions:
Ha, ha. It was actually the Capitol Fund reception that was advertised here (otherwise I wouldn't have known about it so all thanks goes to that poster!!!) I sent in a check of 75 bucks to register for it and it was worth every penny. This is the original thread:Question? How did you manage to snag an invite to the reception. Curious minds want to know? I'm sure I'm not the only one.
You're welcome, and oh man...I'm not technically inclined skating-wise, so I have no idea how to identify jumps as they're being performed live (with the exception of the axel). But it was the second jump in the program- I assumed she has planned a layout so whatever jump that was, that was the one she failed.Do you know what jump Cohen fell on? Thanks for the great report!
She was my favorite in Baltimore. Even if she was here, I don't think she would have come up (just based on the fact that Jeff didn't, as the guest). And as apprehensive as I was in seeing/approaching Sasha (I think I did a good job in not showing it though), I don't think I'd be able to stop shaking if I was given the opportunity to meet Meissner.To bad Kimmie was not there. Can't wait to see your photos
hehe, thanks. It DID take courage on my part, especially given that the skaters wouldn't be around for long and Sasha was the only one able to do it at the time. I knew that if I chickened out and didn't ask her, I likely wouldn't have gotten a picture with Todd. (An autograph, yes.)You're my hero for working up the courage to get Sasha to take your picture with Todd!
I didn't look for a wrapped leg but I did not see one. And yes, she did both numbers, landing 3 of 4 attempted jumps.Was Sasha's leg still wrapped like someone mentioned in an earlier SOI review? And did she do her first number? (She only did one number at a recent show.)
