    Its been nearly two months since worlds so it would be cool if we can get an official retiring/split list going because this post season has been a mess!

    Here is my best attempt at a US pairs inventory

    Confirmed returning
    ]Zhang/Bartholomay
    Scimeca/Knierim (rumored to be working with Marcotte on choreography)
    Denney/Frazier (announced music, choreo by Renee Roca)
    Kayne/O'Shea
    Calalang/Sidhu
    Shaughnessy/Morgan
    Aaron/Settlage- Jr Champs moving up

    Confirmed split-
    Castelli/Shnapir via USFS press release **both expressed intent to look for new partners

    Assumed to split based on removal from International Selection Pool List
    Leng/Leduc (heavily rumored to have tried out with Castelli and Shnapir respectively)
    Dolan/Speroff (rumored she wants to continue)
    Davis/Brubaker (Rockne has taking a job as director of IL rink; Lindsay's plans unclear although after two one season partnerships with formerly successful guys, maybe she's calling it a day)
    Pfund/Reiss
    Liu/Perini- Jr silver medalists; she has a new Junior partner as he was aging out

    Denney and Coughlin are still listed in the International Selection Pool (as are Castelli & Shnapir at this point). But they haven't made any statements decisively. TSL indicated she was looking for a new partner about a month ago. Its crazy to think that she's younger than Castelli & Scimeca and the same age as Kayne & Zhang because we've had her on the scene for so long now. She really could go several more years in pairs.

    I believe the federations have to turn over lists of potential GP skaters to the ISU by 6/3 for selections by 6/27 so I expect we'll hear about the new partners of C/S and the future of D/C very soon

    Just noticed that Aaron/Settlage are #32 on the World Standings list ... and by my count, at least seven pairs above them b have split or retired.

    Per Razzano's new blog entry today, he will continue to compete in the coming season.
    Looking ahead, I have committed to skating this season and am currently in the overwhelming process of trying to select music for new programs.

    His comments on his FS at Nationals this year:
    Being in seventh after the short, I knew an Olympic spot was pretty much out of the question. Therefore, I could go out and skate in the freeskate, not trying to get anything, not trying to defend anything, but freely and I did just that. Never in my life have I had moment like I had then. To see so many people on their feet after my program was indescribable. The feeling that I had after I skated was something that I can't find anywhere else in life. It was overwhelming, it was emotional, it was truly amazing.

    Ugh I'm getting concerned that there's been no announcement or even rumors since the LeDuc thing weeks ago. She's so talented and I would hate it if she split from Simon without a plan and ends up not finding a partner.

    I heard Jeremy is going to stay in and he is going to reuse his LP next season.



    Sorry, I'm just being silly. Has anyone heard anything about him officially retiring?

    Don't get me wrong, I have a special place in my heart for Caroline...but if I had a child who was learning to skate, I wouldn't want her teaching my kid anything other than spins and a COE spiral.

    Caroline's basic skating was weak, her technique on every jump except the loop was bad (and even that she cranked around using her entire upper body for more than half of her career), she never learned any difficult transitions, shallow edges...

    Is that mean to say? Am I wrong to say I wouldn't want Caroline teaching my kid basics?

    It's not mean but I will say that how well someone can do something is not always indicative of how well they might be able to understand or teach it.
