Absolutely agree with AC doing shows. Not sure it is good for her to do any GP event given surgery, time off and her comp. nerves. I am always pleased to see her in shows where she can relax and just show off her best moves. She brings something to shows that only a few retired ladies do, like Joannnie and Shizuka, IMO. (and for eligibles, the beauty that lovely Mao brings to her gala skates. Forgot Carolina. These ladies are so special when just skating and not worrying about the jumps these days. Beauty for its own sake gets overlooked in CoP numbers. Thank goodness for exhibitions to show us their love of iceskating.
