I am not judging flatts pcs but based on statements of others she had none so if they all gave flatt the 3 and 4 in pcs and she did all triples compared to czisny or whoever being more skate princess pcs and then pcs gave the victory to flatt even though flatt jumped and czisny didn't well when then the federation would not be doing a good job. They wanted a jumps because that's more tangible. Triple triple Tes gets assigned value. So that's one example of pushing that a federation might think of.
1888, as the name of a barnstorming baseball team composed of players from various teams across the United States. From all + American.
The definitions of "all-American" from Macmillan Dictionary (of American English):
(1): an all-American player is a student at a high school, college, or university in the U.S. who has officially been called one of the best in their particular sport
(2): an all-American boy or girl has all the good qualities that many people in the U.S. consider typical of Americans, for example being attractive and healthy, and working hard
(3) made up only of people or things from the U.S.(an all-American girl from the heart of Kansas)
http://www.macmillandictionary.com/u...n/all-American(It's going to be an all-American final.)
Absent from the etymology and these definitions are: "light skin, blond hair, blue eyes."
Some of us recently discussed this topic at length within the "Figure skating needs CPR" thread, on pp. 6-9.

Oh, bleep. Des Moines is in Iowa. Oh well.
Additionally, I don't think that LeCygne, R.D., or Pepe Nero were suggesting that ethnicity plays a role in one's all-American-ness. The tone of their posts implied that they disapproved of such attitudes, if anything.
West New York is a town in New Jersey. (No joke.)
So your mistake is totally forgivable, as far as I'm concerned.
So Alissa is doomed because she's brunette? Mirai didn't win Nationals in 2010 because she's asian and Rachael is blonde? Zhang and Gao have never received Nationals inflation because they too are asian and not blonde white girls? Agnes and Courtney got on the podium at Nationals this year because they went blonde while Gao and Cesario are still asian and brunette, respectively? Seriously? While I get there is weird scoring business going on at Nationals each year, I highly doubt it has to do with race, hair color, or what state in the country one is from For what it's worth, Ashley and Gracie are both naturally brunettes too (I know Gracie was maybe blonde when she was little but looking at those roots of hers, if her hair wasn't bleached it would definitely be brown now).
now that's really reaching.
