    Let's all take a moment to be thankful that...

    Worlds is almost here!

    There will be something new to talk about that is not:

    *Adelina
    *YuNa
    *Olympic judging
    *Johnny's divorce.

    I think one day we'll all look back on this scoring "controversy" and laugh. But it will be exciting to talk about new "controversies" after worlds.

    I'm pumped. I made sure I got Thursday off of work so I can stay up all night watching...hopefully not on an iPhone again.

    The last one, though. I am so excited for worlds!

    I'm sure that we'll still be treated to "Gracie is the most beautiful person on planet earth!!!!!!" throughout Worlds.

    Unfortunately, I will be here hoping that all the good GS internet sleuths find youtube videos for those of us without Universal or $ to pay for Ice Network.

    At least this will mean going back to the "routine"

    I still think, in the blonde white girl field, looking purely superficially through white guys' eyes, Kiira is prettier... so while I think Gracie is pretty, we have yet to find a successor of Kiira.

    I hope that you did not mean any harm, but am I the only one who finds this post quite offensive? "Blonde white girl field ... through white guys' eyes"??? Yikes.

    Wrong on multiple levels, IMO.

    Sorry if it did. I did want to deflect the matter from Gracie's looks, as it seemed to go that way. I guess it didn't work

    Unless of course Johnny makes a controversial comment as a commentator at Worlds and the judging once again is like 2013 Men's Event...

    Apology accepted.

    And I share your distaste for sky_fly's incessant hyping of Gold's looks -- which is demeaning both to her and to other young ladies.

    Wishful thinking on your part. What I am more sure about though is 20 years from now you will still be on a random internet forum somewhere trying desperately to convince everyone around Adelina deserved to win her Olympic Gold even in a thread about a pre novice event somewhere which nobody is discussing her on, lol!

    I think we'll all be thankful if Mao or Carolina win a world title. If Julia wins, oh goodness...not another Russian skater. I think that would leave a sour taste in many mouths.
