and since I'm late to say it: GO KEEGAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
My realistic prediction:
Long time no see
Article on Jeremy.
Sounds to me that he is fit and fine. Hungry to compete but yet mentioning the mental issues. Gaah… I just have to accept that watching him compete will be nailbiting… always…
Good to hear that his back injury is taken care of:"I've learned that I really am a strong competitor. I do have some issues when it comes to preparation - the mental aspect but I do have that drive and that fire to compete.
Also nice to hear that he is a team playerI went to see one of the US gymnastics doctors and he worked with me for two hours. We did adjustments and went over everything and I took one of my trainers with me so that she could get everything. She also came with me to Paris and really kept me mobile and it was nice having her there. She'll be with me at Nationals and Worlds and then hopefully everywhere with me next year as well.
"My concern at this point is making the World team and then putting in all the work for Worlds. The U.S. Wants to secure three spots (for next years Olympics) and I want to help get that third spot back in time for Sochi.

To the folks in the US:
"Now it's your turn. Are you guys ready for the upcoming nerve-wracking competition?! I sincerely hope from the bottom of my heart that you will survive!"
I will relax on my couch and watch US Nats and Euros via J-Sports.

I hope there are some good streams. This Australian fan wants coverage!
silverlake22 your Realistic prediction is actually my Dream & Realistic podium:

Too bad that Lysacek doesn't say whether he revealed his intentions for Nationals to Spielberg.

Doesn't seem likely that Evan will be competing.
Based on their abilities and from what I've seen this season, here are my placement predictions, which could be close to accurate or off by a mile of course:
This field is really loaded with talent, but also they all need to demonstrate more strength and consistency.

Go William Brewster! Go Grant Hochstein! (My hometown boys. )
Art&Sport, I'm a bit befuddled by your placement of Brown at 9th. That's his finishing position the last two years - last year's with only a double Axel and some falls in the long. This year he will be armed with a 3A AND a 3A-3T if practice reports are to be believed, has improved again...if he skates clean (which is normally how he skates) then I can't see him finishing that low.
