    She wrote another blog, snarking at some of the stupid questions reporters ask.

    the first blog was so sweet. I never was kimmie's biggest fan, but that was really sweet. She probably knows that she won't be back at worlds.

    As for the second blog...i can't believe they published that trash.

    As opposed to some of the trash blogs that PH has written?

    Amen to that.

    Do you fall? Does it hurt when you fall?

    Do you really want to see the hematomas on the side of my hip? Try launching yourself a couple feet off the ground, rotating a couple times in the air and then trying to land on a 3/4-inch piece of steel on one foot, on a surface that is very, very slippery, that would be the ice. Ouch!
    EVERYTIME I read that I can't help cracking up!!! But the whole blog is worth reading!!!!! Btw, nice writting skills from Meissner, though it's not that surprising since she's known for being an avid reader, they usually have a tendency to express themselves quite well.

    That girl gives the most boring interviews. Even if journalists did ask insightful questions, she'd still give her practiced, PR-approved answers.
    "I'm skating for my country."
    "Just doing my best."
    "I'm having fun."
    "Losing every competition since Worlds is a good learning experience."
    "Underarmor (TM) is the best clothing brand!"

    I prefer Patrick Chan's spontaneous sincerity to Meissner's whining about st00pid journalists.

    Yes. I would hardly single Meissner out, though- they ALL do it now. The only female skater I remember with at least some edginess was the old Cohen. That was refreshing. (the new Cohen is just like everyone else, giving the same old boring PR answers).

    I don't think Kimmie has said any of those things. She always seems to show a fun side in her interviews. Did someone pee in your cereal this morning brightphoton? Chan's jabbing at Brian's long program was classless, especially after saying he thought maybe he should have kept quiet earlier in the week when their "war of words" began. Just my opinion. By the way, Underarmor rocks!

    I generally agree with your posts, but here I have to disagree. Snarky? Much less than he deserves, actually.

    Hersh, the self-appointed God of skating, has basically come out and told this person to quit the sport (while simultaneously encouraging ancient skaters like Kwan to come back).

    Snarky? Hersh is lucky she hasn't pulled a Tonya Harding on him.
