cornell: Gotcha, but still am puzzled by not thinking Flatt was even in the running for an alternate position. But if you really don't see anything to her skating, hopefully you'll be able to see some of the other ladies you mentioned in their future performances.
So, did they confirm WORLDS team yet?
It's getting really late here on the east coast and plainly I'm not making too much sense anymore ... should probably give it up and go to sleep.

WHy took them so long for another announcement?
I think the US figure skating president is making a phone call to Cinquinta in case he could use connection to drop some other country slots and add one more spot to US :lol: How about punishing Korea for not sending Yuna to 4 cc and reduce their olympic slot to one seat?
YAY!! Congratulations to Rachael and Mirai!!!! well deserved!!
Thank you, Sasha for bringing back the excitement to this event. I admire you so much and what a treat for us to see you again on the ice in this olympic year!!
All the skaters deserve standing ovation from everyone.
sorry i can't find the official announcement anywhere--who are the alternates for ladies for the Olympics?
Still, even though Flatt is not one of my favorites, I am so impressed at how she just refuses to crumble under pressure. How does she DO it?? Also, I'm amazed at how Mirai rose to the occasion tonight. When Flatt and Ashley had great skates I thought, uh oh, that's going to be tough on Mirai. But she skated as if there was no one else in the world. She has truly come a long way.
Interesting that the Olympics will be the first major international competition for Mirai. It was the same for Sasha at 2002.
Bravo, College of Charleston!(beating UNC in basketball) -
Bravo, Alabama!(winning the national title in football) -
And Bravo, Rachael Flatt! I'm 3 for 3 in my sports moments so far in 2010!
Now, if the Indy Colts win the SuperBowl and Rachael wins Olympic Gold - wow!
It was Go, Tara! Then it was Gimmie Kimmie! Now it's Rock 'em Rachael!!
My stupid feed kicked the dust...Please anyone- let me know if they announce the Ol alternates or the World/4CC teams! Thank you All!
PS- I'm have a great time lurking tonight- love all of your convesations!
