    So the Spanish ice team finished 3rd?
    Great!

    I wonder what happened to Adrian.
    Thanks for the correction, Snowflake. I should have double checked.

    I have read at the "Brian Joubert" thread that he had hurt his back; he was to decide whether to withdraw from CoC over this weekend.

    I really wish that Brian makes a swift recovery and makse it to the CoC. However, if he withdraws:

    1. Is it too late to find a replacement?;
    2. If it is not too late, who that person might be?;
    3. Keegan Messing had just won this competition (international senior B comp) with the combined score of 203.42, which easily clears the GP minimum score requirement. He is also currently ranked 31st in the world. All the US men raking higher than Keegan (Jeremy, Adam, Evan-withdrew, Richard Dornbush, & Brandon Morz have already received 2 GP assignments. Even those men who rank lower than Keegan, Armin (#38), and Ross Miner (#41), got 2 GP assignments.

    I am glad that Armin & Ross received GP assignments, but it just irks me that Keegan has not received even one assignment . What would be the probability that Keegan receives a GP assignment? Are there any alternate list somewhere?

    Does this win increase his chance?

    Possibly, but at the same time it wasn't like he skated lights out - the last few years he's skated a great short and had mistakes in the long that dropped him significantly in the standings. This is a "B comp" so who knows. There's also, as I said, the issue of $$. Just to get him to Seattle normally costs around $450 (round trip) I don't even know what an international flight to Europe costs us poor Alaskans.

    $450 (round trip) to Seattle! Wow, it is costly, indeed.

    However, I believe it is the host country that incurrs the trip/meal/accomodation of all skaters. Granted, I understand that someone else has to shoulder Keegan's coaches' expenses...

    Has anyone looked into getting Keegan sponsored by Alaska Airlines? It seems like a natural match.

    I have no idea, but that would be awesome... not sure they would, though... it's such a BIG company now... I can remember when they used ALASKAN everything, now that they're mainly seattle oriented it seems... all they are interested in doing up here is price gouging. In the winter months only the really big companies fly in and out so you have, basically, Delta AKAir and Continental that routinely take passengers... so they can basically charge whatever they want... I could gripe for days about it lol

    http://www.adn.com/2011/10/29/214573...al-figure.html - Article in the major paper in AK (that's run by a company in California... and is pretty much anti Alaska, but that's a rant for Le Cafe lol)

    ^ - Thanks for letting me know about this article. I see what you mean by the negative tone of the article, but I am still glad that Keegan's fan-base is increasing in Alaska. Now, if he only places higher at nationals this year, we may have a barganing chip to negotiate with one of those airlines for him.
    Go Keegan! You rock.

    yeah they just state the facts. They got all testy with me a year or so ago because I was unhappy with a wimpy little blurb they did about him. When he landed his triple axel at nationals as a novice there was a HUGE article about him, but then nothing since then unless his fans/family push for it.

    the editing staff at the paper are horrible, too. So many stupid errors in the basics drive me batty. and they very rarely fact check.

    In other words, it's a "typical liberal" newspaper. - Sorry, I couldn't help taking your bait.
