I couldn't watch all of the GPs this last year (we don't have Univeral Sports). I had to work most Sundays too but I did catch some LPs on NBC. Did Agnes not do well in both of her short programs at the GPs?

She has actually skated quite good SPs on the Grand Prix the last couple seasons. Just not the flawless and spectacular SPs she skated the last 3 years at Nationals (minus the double axel fluke). Still much better than she has managed in the LPs.

The word "fair" is thrown around here too often as if objective, incontrovertible marks were possible. We all know that in figure skating, "fair judging" means "judging in the way that I would judge them."

Exactly. My mom says fair is what you want or think; problem everyone has different interpretations often.

I think Wagner and Gold will make top 3 no matter what even if they flub up a bit so that is one spot. I have no idea who deserves. ARguments could be made that the out of competition Czisny should have the spot. Mirai who seemed to be destined to be world champion and maybe olympic champion; i am not sure she has cured her edge and ur calls especially the latter so she could easily get in trouble with what appears to be a clean skate. She has lost some of that joy even misplaced while skating to Carmen in Vancouver. I would love it if there was a complete miracle and Zhang shocked everyone that would be just too much (and too unlikely). Zawadiak, Gao, Cessario, Wang, Hicks, Edmunds, et al all have a shot it is so wide open. Who knows Flatt could fluke out too but unlikely. Mirai you would think has the best shot in some ways with her experience. Interesting indeed.

The USFSA loves a good comeback story. I wouldn't be surprised if Mirai or Flatt made the third spot especially if the other dark horses make a lot of mistakes. We want to show our best skaters to the world so then again Agnes may get the spot if she has a clean LP. Anything can happen but bank on Wagner and Gold unless they get injured. I'd like to see Gao get the third spot or Mirai so she can get a second chance. We will have to wait and see what happens.
