What a lot of skaters need to do is step up to the plate when it counts and hit a base-clearing home run.
Adam is being interviewed on Universal Sports. Guess it is important for him to tell himself that he fought for it and he is excited for next year, etc, etc, but he doesn't seem to realize that he will have an even greater battle to get back to Worlds next year. Lots of U.S. guys are sitting at home chomping at the bit to beat both Adam and Jeremy next year at Nationals (not to mention the specter of Evan and Johnny maybe coming back). Adam and Jeremy are without a doubt two of our best guys right now, but sad to say, they did not get the job done. You have to skate clean at the very least. Last year two good but relatively unknown guys did that, but were dumped on. This year two guys with higher rep and experience didn't get the job done -- no 3 spots. They should at the least have accomplished that. How hard is it to at least land in 6 and 7 place? For God's sake, Jeremy is good enough to medal, but altho' he fought hard, it was not good enough.
