    I knew Alissa won once Mirai finish. Only a on Mirai could beat that skate. Rachel couldn't touch that even with a clean skate...well not rightfully so.

    I guess I wanted to put that out about Alissa because most people are so crazy about her. Layfan has a point about the international judges but Alissa and Worlds... the two things just don't go together. Well, hope she'll prove me wrong.

    Sorry, I'm in a bad mood because of Ashley and Mirai.

    Fascinating how split the opinions are about Agnes. Some see her as the complete package already, others as awkward and without polish. Put me in the first camp.

    I think Agnes still needs more speed but I think she is definitely on the way to being the whole package. An amazing talent. And she is the best U.S jumper in over a decade now.

    I don't see Agnes as elegant at all...not yet. She has great potential and such wonderful jumps but I don't know if anyone realize that it's possible that she's still growing which can throw everything off.

I hope this is the kick in the butt she needs to bring it for real next year, as I love her skating too.

    I don't think I knew Alissa would win until Rachel doubled a triple. But I am so happy for her.

    I can't seem to find the other posts now; but someone mentioned Mirai needs to go to someone like Yuka....Yuka and Jason rock! but, I think Frank does too. I bet that he is actually great for her - she just needs to settle down a bit and work on those under rotations, and did I say settle down. I bet she will.

    Rachel doing Tosca is a great idea, I'm all for it!
    yes, as soon as Rachael doubled her jump I thought, "Oh my God, Alissa won the national championships." But you always want the winner to beat the others at their best. I wish Rachael and Mirai had had better skates. I honestly think Alissa might have been capable of beating them anway. But Alissa was so fine I coudn't ask for for more. I'm just frustrated for Rachael and Mirai.

    I though Frank's comment was rough but he's known to be a tough coach. I mean, he's dumped skaters in the past. I guess Mirai is willing to deal with it. I hope she continues to. She would be a fool to leave Frank and Frank wouldn't be smart to give up on her.

    But I wonder... there's that whole thing with Frank changing rinks and Mirai having a long commute. I hope their relationship survives.

    Michelle skated to Winter for her 97 worlds exhibition. It's my favorite MK exhibition. I'm not sure about Yadgudin though.

    Sorry - I too feel really bad for Mirai and Ashley and love their skating very much. I am very happy for Alissa and kind of think she already has some international judge appeal (didn't she just win the GPF?....yes, yes, I know neither Mao nor Yuna were there).

    Anyway, I'mnn with you - I see Agnes as the compelte package already too....she just need next season to consistently medal at the senior level to proove it to everyone else. Somone earlier said that they haven't seen someone with this jump talent since Tonya, and I couldn't agree more - plus she is polished and lithe and musical (Tonya had shades of the latter too)....can't wait for next year!

    I think Agnes has all the pieces. She has HUGE jumps and a nice style. She exudes confidence and personality. But she still has some finessing to do and it would be great if she can get some more speed. I like her. It'll be interesting to watch her develop in the next year and see if she does become a force to be reckoned with. I didn't like her SP dress, but other that that, I thought there was a lot to like.

    I kinda thought so too. Not because Rachael can't beat Alissa but because Rachael's LP this year just isn't the greatest. And I knew she wasn't planning a 3-3 so I just didn't think she would do it.

    I don't know if Tosca is right for her but something along those lines would be good. Strong, flowy music that isn't sharp or cutesy _ or too balletic classical.

    After that pink bordello outfit she wore in the SP, I'd have been happy with a leotard. But I loved her FP dress. I liked the Polish or at least Slavic theme of her program.

    I don't like Alissa's skating, she herself is an obvious angel, but her skating sucks big time for me. SAFE skater.
    You know something? I get not liking a skater. I truly do.

    However, why on earth such a posting when there was no question whatsoever tonight the best skater of the night *is* the Champion? Especially when said skater has had the career Alissa's had and is having the Season of her life this year.

    Not only do I not get it, but it's also sad too.

    Okay...I've been battling a bit of a bug this week and have fallen off my exercise routine. Today was the first day I've felt like a human being again, so decided to go on the Elliptical for the Final Flight.

    Thank God I did that. Otherwise, I might not have made it through it all.

    I have been a fan of Alissa's for a long, long time. Became an even bigger fan after meeting her at Skate Canada in Ottawa a couple of years ago, but what really sealed the deal w/her for me was watching her w/the little ones that night. Like the rest of the fans, I was wondering if we'd ever see her have a year like this year and...I still don't quite believe she's now a Two Time United States Champion!!!

    I almost fell off the EM when the final marks and standings came up.

    BTW, there is one person missing in the Thank You's I'm seeing here towards those who have worked w/Alissa this year, and that's Brian Boitano. If Brian hadn't said to Alissa when she was seriously considering retiring after last season to stop and think if this was how she wanted to end her skating career, w/horrible season she had last year, and to make sure she had no regrets when looking back ten years from now.

    I don't think that's going to be a problem for Alissa now.

    Congratulations to one heck of a class act and Good Luck to Alissa at Worlds!!!
