    Armin has been a big Mao fan and he has Youtube tributes to her with his piano playing her skating music. They met last year, I think, and had pictures taken. Cute and I was happy for him.

    Um, Dornbush was named 1st alternate for 4CC. Which isn't entirely unprecedented; they named Johnny 1st alternate to Worlds over Ryan in 2009, though there was a lot more of that sort of thing this year. Who knows if they actually expected anyone to withdraw, but it's like they're not doing things in accordance with who they named.

    Great, chapis....yes, this event is extreamly cheep to go to. IIRC, the tickets get you into the world figure skating museum for free, too. Normally, I dont do exhibitions, but the one I saw in 2007 was one of the best ever.
    Really different. Have a great time....

    Though the chance of an Australian skater winning a medal is slim to none, since i'm an aussie i'll always support them.
    The mens team look stronger with all the skaters doing more triples or triple-triples at nationals as well as a triple axel for some of the skaterss And the Australian dance team has been training with A. Krylova and P Camerlergo and have been training partners with weaver and poje for the last year so i really hope some P/B's could be smashed!!

    With the ladies, the aussies are sending young junior skaters so i hope its a good experience for them.

    And that's the problem - Skate Canada wants a magic bullet, and there isn't any.

    I rescind my comment about Japan not sending Kozuka and/or Hanyu.

    As much as I love those two and regret not being able to see them here in Colorado, Machida and Mura were absolutely phenomenal yesterday. Especially Mura. Who would have thought that Japan's #5 skater would be trailing the reigning world champion and current world record holder by a few points?
