I only watched nationals in bits and pieces because I have a new baby ... hence, I missed Rachael Flatt's LP and had to miss Jeremy reacting to his win... I also tried to watch the ice dance but ended up falling asleep out of exhaustion throughout the whole thing until the shibutanis skated. but I think the fact that I have followed figure skating at all this season with a new baby shows what a dedicated fan I am
    Congratulations on your new baby!!! And yes, simply amazing that you have followed skating...you are totally dedicated!!!!

    It's worth watching Rachael when you get a chance; she skated with pure joy and a very lovely dress I might add. It was a very uplifting moment. Jeremy - well- totally amazing!

    Me too. I couldn't believe my eyes!

    Even though I don't like much about his LP, Abbott is an extremely talented skater. He ought to exceed Johnny Weir's medal collections, at least match his. Wish him to be on the podium at this world!

    Thanks for reminding us of this....I had totally forgotten. He really is amazing and I just love, love, love his skating and his attitude. He and his coach were so cute in the KnC after the long...nice to see.

    I love Keegan Messing too. He and Jason are hands-down the most exciting men to look forward to in the next couple of years, for me. Dornbush, Miner, et al. are very very good too, but Jason and Keegan are the standouts in their amazingly different ways.

    I think Toni is going to be on top of the world over Keegan soon. It's hard to imagine such an irrepressible soul not succeeding.

    All of your comments about Keegan make me super excited, will have to pass all of your kind words along.

    Evan is looking wise to stay away....I don't think he could have come close to Jeremy here.
    Hmm, second place would have been quite enough. Anyway, let´s hope that this time the win at the Nationals does not "prevent" Jeremy from skating well at Worlds...

    I am already there I've loved watching him "grow up" in skating and hope he continues all the way to the top, he can do it!

    I saw the interview with Johnny in which he said he was planning a comeback next season. I don't think he would have beaten Jeremy here, maybe Adam. But it seems his expectations aren't too high since he said 'maybe I'm too old and my time has passed' or something like that.

    Jeremy still has room to grow with his LP technically. Some people have been saying that he needs a second quad, but I would rather see him tack on triple toes for his combos. Also, he never seems to be able to control the scratch spin in his flying upright spin in either the short or the long, so I would rather see him hold the back crossfoot spin for eight revolutions or change it all together into a flying sit spin with a twisted sit variation for eight revolutions.

    Now that he has seen the National, I wonder if he is planning a never-comeback? I hope he'll be back, though. I don't care if he can win. As long as he skates from heart, I will always voice my support for his passion and love of the sport.

    I thinkJohnny has no expectations about his comeback, but like he said, a skating comeback is something he has to do now...he doesn't want to be asking "what if" when he's 50. I think his attitude during his two year break as well as his reaction to his Olympic skates (not placement) left him in a good place. So yes he's going to bring the flash and sparkle back, but there's no expectations...not like Evan as the reigning Olympic champ.
    Also, I like that Johnny is really doing this seriously, He says he still has all his triples, his spins are still good as ever, he knows he has to train the quad (not necessarily land it...), so I'm crossing my fingers he feels he can be competition ready since he said I'm not going to go on tv to make an @$$ of myself

    I hope that for his comeback Weir finally understands that a real CoP-choreography is needed (the lack was seen from his PCS in 2010 Olympics). Unlike Plushenko Weir is not getting high PCS without skating to a good professional CoP choreography. Unless his goal is to skate in US 2014 Nationals only?

    I've not been able to watch US Mens or hear Weir's commentary, but he has been highly praised on GS at least. Commenting intelligently requires good understanding of the system so he should know the importance of well adapted choreography and its execution in a competition. OTOH, his frequent put-downs of Patrick Chan indicates lesser COP knowledge or its acceptance. So, . Let's hope he can skate the talk and show his skills and wits on ice.
