Gambatte, Max Aaron/"No letting off the gas pedal"
Uh, yeah... Abbott and Lysacek frontrunners over Aaron?! In what world?
Also, Michael Christian has now been named as the PHI representative. Although if Caluza wins Nationals that could get awkward.
I'd also consider Kerry as a lock too for AUS, as he's clearly their best male skater.
can't come down to Earth
Nice thread, MissIzzy!
I'm happy to hear. Christian sounds like a nice boy with lots of potential, and is home-grown to boot!
