    Michelle Kwan was my idol growing up (still is)! I would love to see her on DWTS!

    How could I get a letter to Meryl? My daughter made a picture of D/W (skating Bollywood of course) I would love to send it to her as well as letting her know that she has given my daughter the hope that she can go to college.

    I hope people have congratulated Olympic medalist and heroine to disabled everywhere, Amy Purdy with the fab Derek Hough.

    You could definitely tweet it to her......But, I feel like there's got to be a better way than even that...

    You can send letters to skaters to their rink and they usually then get them from what I understand.

    I'll give that a try. Thanks!

    My daughters most favorite D/W program hands down is Bollywood
    I'm so happy to hear that your daughter has found such motivation in Meryl's skating. If she feels she has possibilities, then she'll find a way to reach her goals. Between Meryl and Amy Purdy, I'm sure a lot of people have become more aware of the potential that we all have to overcome obstacles and challenges.

    And maybe a copy to USFS as backup. I'm sure they would love to know how well Meryl is representing them and inspiring young skaters and would make sure she saw it.

    I think if another skater were to do DWTS, I'd love to see a Jason B. and Cheryl pairing. That would be so entertaining!!! But, our favorite skaters need to be training, so I guess I'll just have to let that thought go

    Meryl was so charming and appealing all season, but I especially liked her response after Abby Lee Miller night -- (paraphrasing) -- "Maks has never phoned in anything in his life!"

    Still enjoying YT's of the dances. Now I'm a bit spoiled for Val's and Meryl's AT (which I adored and still like, but not as much) because after multiple repeat viewings, Maks's and Meryl's AT just keeps looking better and better. Maks looks so in his suit/costume for that dance, too. Pardon while I fan myself, but talk about broad shoulders, slender hips ... oops, must stop, this is a family board ...

    @desertskates, I'd rather see Jason with Witney, much as I love Cheryl as a pro. Witney was so creative in her choreo with Drew, and I think with Jason would be up for anything choreo wise, and be able to pull a lot of things off well. He and Witney would be a better age match, too, imo.

    I think you're right about the Jason with Whitney thing. Age does tend to play role in chemistry, and I loved Whitney with Drew. Another fun match, imho, Would be Ashley and Val. They're both quite saucy, it would be fun to watch

    only to you figure skating fans, she isnt it with alot of people i know.
    we quit voting for dwts last month . as far as help skating, i doubt it.
    they pushed maxs because he didn't win until now and he complained about it.

    was the vote rigged, no but it was heavily "politically in their favor".

    so no maxs cant stop complaining about not getting the "star" to win. he got his win.

    as far as the "love affair" it was put on to help them win.

    julianne hough and apollo anton ono did the same thing until they won.
    afterward
    "just friends"

    Okay I admit, I watched it... tried to fight one more great British Export, but i just can't. Meryl and Mak rocked, they are so lovely together, I want them to do more things in the future. Maks is seriously gorgeous, best Ukraine export I have seen for a while. It is interesting because Meryl has always the been the standout in the US partnership, while it was Scott who stood out more in the Canadian partnership. Wonder if they every consider switching partnerships, it will be fun to imagine.

    Since they both retired now, maybe doing it for an ice show one day. I have to say Amy Purdy was just incredible... how does she do that? Amazing human being and spirit, wonderful!

    Meryl needs to take a breath and figure out what's next. She's got great options -a continue partnership with Charlie on ice with shows in Japan in July and Sun Valley in Aug, probably lots of TV ice events in the fall. Forget competitive skating for now. She'll take some college classes and trudge through to finish her degree. Meanwhile Meryl and Charlie and Meryl individually will rack up sponsor dollars. I could see Meryl in a Cover Girl commercial - how to accent unique features and make yourself beautiful. I think she needs a few months to figure out the personal end of all this. Is there someone at home waiting? Has she seen a different life that appeals to her, that makes her feel like a woman? Meryl is a cultural anthropology major. She would appreciate and flourish in a diverse, international environment with Maks. But not 'til she's ready. but she has to be intrigued!
