    I have not seen this posted anywhere else. Are you able to divulge the source of this rumbling?

    I won't be surprised if Mirai has left Charlene. Their on-air interactions always seemed rather cool to me.

    Her competitors should be seriously worried if Mirai finds a coach who can help get her UR problems sorted out. Now, if only someone could steer Caroline (Happy 16th Birthday, by the way! ) in the right direction as well.

    It's official. Check icenetwork.

    Thanks. I found it:

    Interesting, and I think Carroll is an excellent choice for her. I guess this ends the speculation that Michelle would resume competitive training with him.

    Mirai and Evan sharing practice time together...somehow, I can see this working.

    Very good and exciting news! I hope it works out and Mirai has a great season.
    And daring to get off topic for a sec - wishing Caroline a happy 16th.

    I see Mirai as having some wonderful qualities and would think Frank might be good for her. As far as teaching, Frank has already taught two of the best ladies of their respective eras in Linda and Michelle so there should be little doubt he knows how to coach.
    Frank was also a student of the great Maribel Owen and I like the idea of Mirai being part of this grand American skating lineage.
    Wow, I don't think I've seen one single response that misses the point of the post he/she was replying to, more.

    Except in retrospect the post turned out to be somewhat intuitive.
    But I see your point and appreciate your friendly words. Thankyou for your advice.
    Mirai and Frank,,,,should be interesting. I gues it's OK to say that now

    It's a good news, at least for me. I love Charlene but I wasn't really sure how good of a coach she was. To me Mirai hasn't gotten any better for a few years.. pretty much since Charlene became her main coach...

    I don't think commuting to Frank's rink is that bad. It's 33 miles from her parent's restaurant to Frank's ice rink.

    WOW. I think this is a really good move. I hope that I see her soon, as I skate at Frank's rink. I am pretty sure that Bebe has no plans to continue competing if this is the case.

    Is Bebe still training?

    I enjoy your posts and was just doing what you were doing - expressing an opinion. Your remark about whether Frank cared - not so sublime - but if I misunderstood what you meant to say perhaps you could explain what you did mean?
    The master never explains, only reveals...

    I have not seen her around the rink, but I have been skating earlier in the mornings now, so she was never around the rink at that time.

    Emi Watanabe was better than both of them. She was so overlooked.
