I agree- but I hardly call waltzing into a competition because you know you've done this stuff before and you think you'll just BLOW the competition away "deserving it" at all. Even if they actually DO manage to place 1st or 2nd.
An LA Times quote from Cohen during the Olympics REALLY had me going Huh?? I suppose she really does think in a similar manner to what I just said above. Definitely not "deserving" in my book. However, I will make the exception if she (either of them) does at least 1 international comp as well and therefore demonstrates that they are really in it "for real" and not just "for cameras and publicity". I'll totally be willing to send one or the other if they show me that they can do better than the current American field, and thus can save us from being shut out of the Olympic medals. Because in the end, it's all about the best shot at a medal, not about "the experience" or whatnot. I'm against their comeback now because I don't think they can be more competitive than our current ladies, and they have that much more "mileage" on them (i.e. think of an old sports car).
