    Predict Ladies top 5 at USA Nationals!!!

    1.sasha - it is "her" season everything is pointing to her reigning supreme this year

    2.michelle kwan - turns in a beautiful if conservative 6 triple performance with no tripletriple...loses to sasha on a controversial 5-4 split

    3. Amber Cowin- has a breakthrough performance including a 3toe3toe

    4. Angela Nikodinov - has a "personal best" performance but just misses the podium

    5 - Ap mcdonough

    1. Sasha (not that I want it, predictions aren't wants after all)
    2. Jennie Kirk
    3. Angela Nikodinov
    4. AP McDonnough
    5. Amber Corwin

    I have a feeling MK will take the year off... or maybe I'm hoping that so we get a different skater going to worlds this year...

    The US Nats are a long way off.

    What's the purpose of early predicting? Some poster thought it would be great to predict the Campbells's without ever seeing the new programs of the skaters. From 20 responses to the Campbells predictions, only 5 were correct. A very poor show for all those soothsayers. And from all the predictions it seemed to me that posters were just 'wishing' for the favorite to win - not really an intelligent prediction, imo.

    My question, therefore, should I really pedict the winner (Timothy Goebel) or wish my favorite (Johnny Weir) as the winner?

    There! I just did both.

    BTW, I'm using men as examples so as not to get too involved with favorite ladies who will not be well thought out predictions.

    Same here...I agree, I don't really see the point of predicting on the whole actually...I mean, anything can happen. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with it, just that I choose not to predict the outcomes of events anymore.

    When the event is one or two weeks away, then we can probably make more "reasonable" predictions.

    Well, I think that the whole point of predicting something is being missed here. It is for trivial enjoyment...I seriously doubt that anyone is backing these predictions up with their car titles. It is for fun! Loosen up! It is interesting to see how people can view things so differently.

    Agree!! I've loosened. It's just fun trivia. It's basically picking your favorite skater for most fans. Hardly interesting. If the poster does give a rationale about the skaters picked, then it would be interesting.

    Yet the timing of this fun trivia is a bit soon. I would prefer if we had a fun trivia of predciting the finalists in the GP and the Winner. Sasha will be in the Finals; Liashenko most probably. Any others?

    Predictions for Nats:

    Kwan (because she hasn't done diddly all season and will be fresher for the big day)

    Sasha

    Jenny

    AP

    Angela if she goes/ Amber if Angela doesn't

    i think sasha's year is here folks... i believe she'll take the title at nationals and possibly worlds if she can be that consistent.

    oh, i would love for jenny to be on the podium.... she's been around for quite some time now and should be making a name for herself seriously pretty soon.. kwan and cohen might not be the only ones challenging for that next olympic gold (and maybe ota?)..... we'll see how she develops

    How it might go:

    Michelle
    Sasha
    Jenny
    AP
    Yebin

    However, due to some uber-fans who cause me to dislike certain skaters simply because they (the uber-fans) don't know when to quit, it also wouldn't disappoint me if things went like this:

    Michelle
    Jenny
    Yebin
    AP
    Bebe
    Amber
    Sasha

    IMO.
