[QUOTE=golden411;757267]Yes, Miner is listed for both SP and FS at the Cranberry Open.
SP: Friday, August 16, 2013 4:05 PM[/QUOT

Anyone know if there is a live stream/video for the cranberry open this year?
Ok, us Ross fans need to get this thread going again. Ive been reading some very negative things about Ross, so I think we should talk about some positives and send some good vibes his way before he competes at Skate Canada this week. Anyone want to start and say some good things about his new programs?
I think with each program, I hope that he really takes his time before starting. Both are unique in their own way.
The Short is very romantic and peaceful. Depending on what kind of program precedes him, the audience needs to be ready to pay attention and focus. It is like reciting a quiet thoughtful poem, and for that, people should be listening.
For the Free, there is a meaningful theme and tone. While Men's is about hitting the jumps, regardless of how those go, the music and the story he is telling can be extremely effective if he stays with his music and lets himself simply tell the story.
All the best to Boston's best, Ross Miner!
Ross is a very nice, modest, grounded guy who unfailingly demonstrates gracious good sportsmanship. His free skate, for those who don't know, is about the Boston Marathon bombings. Ross, a native of Watertown, Mass, where the manhunt took place, felt compelled to say something about it.
My very best wishes to Ross both for Skate Canada and for the rest of the season!
I hope he lands both his quads, and definitely shows the spirit of Boston Strong!
Ross will be competing at Gardena Spring Trophy. His ankle is healing up, he is taking college courses, and he wants to qualify to compete at Worlds in 2016 in Boston.
I am also Very Happy that Ross isnt going to retire yet. I am a huge fan of his and i am rooting for him with my heart and soul!
Congratulations to Ross for winning the 2014 Skate Canada Autumn Classic leg of the ISU Challenge series!!
Ross did so much better at US Nationals than last year! I'm sad that he won't get to do 4C's, but so happy that his recovery is going well.
Ross will start his season at the Lake Placid Summer.Championships
He is also using Who Wants to Live Forever.Ross Miner will debut two new programs at the Lake Placid Summer Championships, which take place June 26-27. His short program, choreographed by Jamie Isley, is to Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind." The free skate, to a medley of songs by Queen, was choreographed by Lori Nichol in early April. Miner says he went out to California for the choreography sessions without a clear idea of what he was looking for
But the song 'Too Much Love Will Kill You' had been in my head the whole time."

I love his sp music choice, not so sure about the long. I hope he has a program that builds at the end with a crescendo this year. His lp fell a little flat at the end last year at nationals. He needs to get the crowd behind him more!
According to a July 2nd announcement by USFSA, Ross is in the B team envelope for 2015-16.
The Lake Placid Skating Club press release for the summer championship said Ross did do both his SP and LP there. The pess release approved of his programs, but gave no details.
