    CONGRATULATIONS TO MISS ASHLEY WAGNER, 2012 US NATIONAL CHAMPION & 4CC CHAMPION!!!!

    It has been a loooooooong road, for both you & your fans, but we never gave up, I've been with you since I first saw you skate. And I've never waivered that YOU should have won 2008 Nationals. And now you have, as well as 4CC, in the style & conviction of a C-H-A-M-P-I-O-N!!!!!

    Interesting to compare the scores here to Caro's at Euros (even if we're not really supposed to compare scores across events).

    It looks like Caro has the PCS advantage, but both Ashley's and Mao's TES crush Caro's.

    Worlds is going to be more interesting than I'd thought....

    Wow! Ashley won? Amazing. I hope she can bring this strength to Worlds.

    I am sorry for Mao, though. She is such an extraordinary skater, and I still hope she wins Worlds. But golly, how nice to think that Ashley could be (whispers) a contender!

    Well, isn't it funny how quickly things change? Just a few days ago the general consensious was that we were all rooting for Alissa to get top5 again at Worlds and for Ashley to keep up with her, and now we're rooting for Ashley to get on the podium and for Alissa to please, please, please not mess up the best thing that the US ladies has had going in years.

    So proud of Caroline...I hope she is able to take this confidence and come out next year swinging! Especially if the US gets three spots, there will be room for her to go to Worlds, which would be amazing. Has Caroline ever been to Senior Worlds?

    Mao just congratulated Ashley. "Very beautiful." How sweet!

    ETA: Mao has my respect always. She's still an AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL skater. And she's a great sport.

    She was royally robbed at Nationals 2008. I am shocked it never got more press than it did.

    I can't believe...Ashley Wagner of all the US Ladies has the best chance at ending the US Worlds medal drought.

    Think about this folks: prior to this and nationals, the last time Ashley Wagner won anything was in juniors, six years ago! The last time she won a competition, Saddam Hussein was still alive! And now, two in a row, and she beats someone who very likely could be the next world champion. The USFS might as well book that ticket for the third spot at Worlds next year, 'cause it's coming! Jinx! Jinx jinx jinx jinx jinx!

    Oh man, so many technical problems with this event! Can't believe they played Ashley's music when Kexin's scores were about to be displayed lol.

    The Chinese girl has potential. You have to hand it to her for opening the program with a big, clean 3Toe-3Toe and then two big, correct-edge, clean 3Lutzes. She just got too scared and/or tired in the second half of the program, totally putting on the brakes going into that 3Flip attempt.

    Also, LOL at the Black Swan music coming on accidentally right before her scores came up.

    Can't wait to delve into the protocols for this last group.

    Interesting to see Kexin beat Kanado in the free! (Though I've never been a fan of Kanako's techniks.)

    I was actually thinking of the spiral sequence specifically when writing this Mao spiral has such extension (and the look on her face!) that I don't think it needs to be accentuated with jerky arm movements. Of course, this isn't the only part...I just find Liebestraum to have more nuances.

    But still Ashley was amazing!! No longer the "Almost Girl" in US skating!
