I don't agree with that last point - but we won't get into that debate again.

Good call, and I wish the both of them good luck as well.

If Gracie nails everything, she should be in the top 7, I think. So I am hoping Ashley to be in the top 6.

Well, good luck to both our US women. It would be super great to see Ashley on the podium and have our 3 spots back for an Olympic year. Whatever Ashley did that made her a 2 time national champion was wonderful. So nice to see her staying up top.

Y'all forget sometimes - that's a really, REALLY BIG if!!

Whatever she did to prepare for the FS at US Nationals, she needs to replicate here. No ifs, ands, or buts.

OK, slight OT and maybe a bit boneheaded, but I'll ask anyway: given our current line-up of skaters, who would be the third skater sent, and what is the benefit for the US (as distinct from the interests of the fortunate third skater in question)?

The third skater could be any number of people. Gao, Nagasu, Cizney, Hicks, Zawdawski, etc.
I think the main benefit is that once you have three solid spots, it's a lot easier to maintain them then it is to get them back. So the benefit wouldn't be for Sochi as much as it would be for the next quad where the US will hopefully be looking to better results and a deeper field.

Eight pages and the event hasn't even started yet. The GS boards are going to crash tonight, I predict.

Do the judges have a separate computer so they can quickly determine what pcs to give a skater so they can force the ranking to be what they want.

Yes, they probably have another person sitting at a computer who edits the score before displayed on the board :D
