    But that's not the way it works in life.

    Mao will be 21 in a couple of months. Right now it appears she was a better skater at 18 than she is now.
    Joannie won an OBM at what 23 or 24? Unlike Mirai, Joannie did not finish as high as 4th at the Olympics when she was 16.

    Alissa just had her best season. Who is to say Mirai won't reach her peak until she is 20 which would be 2014.

    Different skaters develope and peak at different ages. I wouldn't be so hard on Mirai yet. She entered 4 events this season and medaled at three of them.I think an added jump at her first event of the season kept her from winning 4 medals in 4 events.

    Many fans expected more from her but on the whole for an "off season" I think she did OK. She flubbed a spin at Natls or she would have been at Worlds.

    I think her medal at 4CC was a positive way to end the season.

    Let's hope she starts off next season healthy as opposed to entering it after having worn a cast on a broken foot for two months.

    I get the feeling with Mirai that she has no self confidence and doesn't really take her skating seriously. To be world champ you have to really want it and believe you are the best. Even when Mirai says she's the best i don't believe her because she doesn't believe it either.

    Everytime you say this I always start picturing some cartoon character but I can't remember which. Someone eternally gloomy, can't remember if it's a Smurf or a Carebear or one of the Seven Dwarves. I only say this because you seem to like Mirai's skating but you're so incredibly pessimistic!
    Anyway, I hear what you are saying but I can't help but hope for next year. At least she finished her season on a high note and seemed determined to try again next year to make her mark. I just hope she and Frank stay together.

    Yes, Eeyore!! No, seriously, I think it's Eeyore I was trying to remember. Whew, thanks, that was bugging me.

    Eeyore, maybe? There's not a gloomy dwarf... grumpy is the only negative character, but he's not doom and gloom he just is, well, grumpy. there was a gloomy smurf, though, and a couple of Eeyore type care bears... yes I'm a child of the 80s.

    Oh I'm so incredibly happy she is sticking around for another season! I was rooting so hard for her to make the podium (and she was SO close too). I hope she improves her skating even more for next season. What a fantastic season!

    Yes, it's Eeyore I was trying to think of. I checked at the smurfs, dwarfs and carebears were all grumpy or grouchy not gloomy.

    When Jammers says that about Mirai I swear I imagine him/her speaking in Eeyore's voice and looking all downcast. I mean that in the best way possible. Who doesn't love Eeyore?

    Has Alissa tweeted about her experiences at ATS Spring? I hope she had a good time performing there. I think she is listed as performing at a show in Japan also later this Summer.
