FWIW, Wagner and Abbott appeared live on the Today show this morning.

[I'm not casting aspersions on Christine Brennan's reporting. Just noting that the athletes declined to tell Lauer anything about the roster. He did not reference Brennan's report.]
Wagner had barely arrived in Sochi -- was very animated.
BTW, Lauer asked her about Mirai Nagasu. Wagner said (I'm paraphrasing) that Mirai had sent her a text [as we knew], and added that they had been in touch thereafter; that they have been friends for some time; and that Wagner really appreciates her support.
Have we had any indication as to who will be captain for Team USA? Davis would be a good choice. Wagner and White already have had turns as captains for WTT.

In any case, no doubt that Kori and he will make a well-informed decision.
