    Headcases rule! But please guys, don't bomb here, please? You are all better then that, not everyone can do monster quads (Verner, Bradley) or 3a+3t (Contesti), you need to get on that ice and just be like, WE'RE THE BEST JUMPERS IN THIS WHOLE DAMN COMPETITION SO LET'S LAND EVERYTHING FOR ONCE AND SEE HOW MUCH DAMAGE WE CAN DO TO UPSET THE FAVORITES, Kay?

    Ladies:

    1.) Yuna

    Glutton for punishment aren't you? But then, I refused to give up hope on Alissa all season, so I can't talk. Jeremy is my favorite headcase going into worlds though.

    Oh dear, Alissa, yeah I thought she was finally gonna deliver and make the Olympic team this year but that just didn't happen . I just hate how the headcases have to be so talented. I mean Jeremy could WIN worlds if he was clean and Tomas has the biggest quad I've ever seen, and could have the highest TES if he just rotated. It might be better for Tomas if people just forget about him and become absorbed with Brezina so then next year Tomas can come back with a vengeance, pull a Miki Ando, beat his younger perfect 3a teammate (because they both have those ) and win worlds.

    Well, Alissa always does well when everyone has forgotten about her. I mean, it's systematic. In 2007, she ends up 1st in the LP because everyone was talking about Emily and Kimmie. Then at 2008 nationals, she bombs because everyone was expecting something great after her 2007 bronze medal. Then in 2009, when everyone had written her off (again) she pulls off this amazing SP. Then, she splats in her LP once everyone is paying attention to her again ... And of course, she couldn't handle the pressure of being the US national champ at 2009 worlds or the defending champ at 2010 nationals.

    Heck, Alissa and Jeremy would probably be world champions if only the audiences could be asked to politely turn their backs, plug their ears and hum loudly for four minutes.

    Well Jeremy yes. Technically Alissa isn't the strongest, she has no 3-3 and problems with URs but her spinning is excellent. I tend to think some of her jump issues are nerve-based though.
