This rink will look almost empty, I think...
    Yup I was basing it off of the same video. And these were the years when skating had HUGE TV ratings in the US, even non-Olympic events like Nationals.

    Also don't forget Toronto, which is only a four-hour drive away!

    In the last two seasons Yuna was on the GP, she was on Skate America for both of them (2008, 2009). So I think it's safe to say that USFSA would probably be open to having her come to the competition!

    She's done SA, CoC and TEB two times each. She's done Cup of Russia and Skate Canada once. She's never been to NHK, which isn't that surprising given that the seeding wouldn't allow her to compete with Mao most of those years (thought 2009 was a possibility since Yuna was 1st and Mao was 4th at the previous Worlds). In any case, it's unlikely she'll get NHK this season because Mao is 3rd and she's 1st.
