    What's next for Agnes Zawadzki, Samantha Cesario, and Courtney Hicks?

    These 3 skaters were aiming for the 2014 Olympics and unfortunately that will probably not be happening. With the financial, emotional, and physical toll that skating can take, is it in their best interest to hang around?

    The FS has yet to be skated, but there is life after the Olympics. Certainly Cesario and Hicks will continue on, and particularly Cesario has shown improvement. Zawadski is still young and I think she has potential even though this season was a setback.

    Sam doesn't have the TES needed to be competitive.
    Agnes doesn't have the mentality of a winner.
    Courtney doesn't have the PCS and consistency.

    Courtney has the best chance at becoming a contender because PCS and consistency can be learned.
    Mental toughness cannot be learned.
    And TES requirement from Sam is just too much.

    So here's the ranking from best to retirement
    1. Courtney
    2. Agnes
    3. Sam

    Not a bad joke in my eyes. From all the angst, one would think the Long Program was over and National champions had been crowned.

    Honestly, if I hadn't been paying attention, I would've thought Miss Illinois had already won the Miss America pageant.

    Huuuu.

    I think the scoring was not fair. Agnes, Samantha deserved better.

    I seriously don't get this joke. Anyone care to explain this to an old fogey? Are you making fun of the fact that the LP is not even a competition, and that Price-Waterhouse like the Oscars already has the team in an envelope somewhere? Unless *ba dum zing* is something kids are saying these days which I've never heard.

    The joke is ... there is no joke.

    I just answered the (title) question literally--different in a way the OP probably intended. *Ba dum zing!* was just a bad onomatopeia of a drum set.

    I hope Cesario stays in. She has proven to be a good competitor. She may need to spend her summers with a jump coach. If skaters like Ashley, Carolina and Suzuki can improve their skating in their twenties I'm sure Cesario can also.
    Does anyone know if she made Mistakes on some of her elements in the SP? Why such low scores on the layback and footwork. I would think it would be easier to get higher levels there.
