    Loved the tidbit about black-and-white print of a canal scene in Amsterdam. That gave me an idea.

    Thanks. Sounds like the move was more about growing up and leaving home than leaving Tom Z. Well that is good, and I am glad everything is working out. I can't wait to see him at nationals!!!

    Well, after the article spent the first two-and-a-half paragraphs dumping on Detroit and Pontiac and finally got around to discussing Jeremy...

    Hey, guy, I've been to Denver. Except for the dinosaur museum I wasn't all that impressed.

    I am not the biggest Denver fan - but drive 45 minutes west and it is like being in heaven!

    Jeremy isn't from Denver. He was born in Aspen, several hours west of Denver, and he trained in Colorado Springs, about an hour and a half south of Denver.

    Now I am curious....like you are making a banner?

    When I read about the print I got the picture of people skating on frozen canals in NL since 1600.

    Oh, that'd be great, but I'm not that creative, I'm afraid. I was thinking about buying someting in a gift shop, something related to Amsterdam, for the opposite wall in his apartment? Since I'm going to Worlds in March.

    I'm pretty much sure he'll be there Yes, I was thinking about something.. throwable. Or, could leave the present at the hotel desk (did it before, although have no idea if the skater got it, I hope he did).

    Good luck to Jeremy defending his US title!

    I think he is such a wonderful, musical skater.
    Here is my favorite men's SP from this season:

    Go Jeremy

    I'm with you Mathman... The best part about the city of Denver was the lack of humidity - and good hair days were had by all - I hope that a bit of the Motor City gives Jeremy the edge that he needs for success

    Congratulations to Jeremy - what great skates at Natls

    Many are giving credit to Yuka and Jason which seems well deserved .

    But I wonder if Kwanford Wife hit on something here.

    Has Motown rubbed off on Jeremy and made him a little tougher?
    I thought he looked a little edgier and that it was Evan and Johnny who looked nervous.

    Thankyou Yuka, thankyou Motown! Thankyou Jeremy!
    Here is a Stevie Wonder classic about the city.

    Detroit is definitely agreeing w/ him if his skating is any indication!
