A Let's See List - Do you have one?
Here is my LET'S SEE LIST for the forthcoming season::
Michelle - at least one 3x3 combo; preferably two.
Sasha: That quad! but only if necessary; preferably two 3x3s and the conistency under fire.
Irina - As Rhoda would say New York, this is your last chance! Let's see a real old fashion Irina.
Carolina - C'mon make my day. You haven't so far. Let' see.
Yukina - You're the best. Let's see you get a place on the Team.
Shizuka - Let's see you do another personal best.
Michael - the quad, of course, and a whole new approach to choreography.
Johnny = Can you repeat the beautiful skates? Let's see.
Evgeny - I hope the knee is fixed or it doesn't have to be and no excuses in Brian wins.
Brian - Let's see a little smile today.
Stephane - You go guy, you have it all just skate it. Let me see it, please.
All the American and Canadian boys: Let's see consistent programs.
The American and Japanese Ladies: Go ahead, let's see you battle it out for that third place at your Nationals.
Lots to see this coming season. What are yours?
Eman, Sasha & Jenny Kirk - consistency.
bugs are smarter than we are
a return to 3x3s by Michelle and some great choreography to match her talent.
Good topic, Joe!
Michelle: I agree with Bronxgirl completely. I would love to see a 3/3, but I'd rather see some intricate and difficult choreography.
Sasha: I'd love to see her be consistent, but more than that I'd really like to see her let go and forge a genuine emotional connection with the audience. She did it in her 04 Worlds SP and I would very much like to see her perform this way more often.
Shizuka: I want her to keep the momentum from last year and would also like to see improved spins (positions, speed, etc.).
Irina: I just want one more vintage Slutskaya SP!
Karolina Kostner: Everything Joe said!
Johnny Weir: He is brilliant...but I think the only way he'll be a medal contender is with a quad. He also needs more speed and perhaps a bit more excitement in his programs (but perhaps that has more to do with choreography).
Inoue & Baldwin: Stand up! You are a beautiful team with loads of potential!
Joey Votto Fangirl
US Pairs: PLEASE don't let Portland be a splatfest like Dallas and Atlanta turned out to be. I think there's lots of potential in some of our US pairs (most notably Orscher & Lucash, Don & Hunt, and Evora & Ladwig) and I would LOVE to see them stand up and skate awesome this year. Give us US folks something to cheer about in Portland! :D
Langlois & Archetto: Please just work on skating your best and not worrying about the results. The results will come if you just skate as well as you possibly can and believe in your abilities. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see them finally become Canadian champions this year.
Michelle: Some wonderful and intricate choreography would be stellar and I would LOVE to see her crank out a new 3x3 just to shut the critics up, LOL
Timmy: Please come back stronger and healthier and know that you are SO on your way to skating with a presentation and style all your own. Don't let the quads go to crap though and I would love to see you skate beautifully at Nats this year. :D
Ryan Jahnke: Get that triple axel even more consistant, maybe throw a few quad attempts this year, and keep on having wonderfully choreographed and intricate programs that I can take a gazillion pictures of in Portland. :D
Tanith & Ben: Maybe have a FD that doesn't have quite the blatent theme this year?! The talent is there so keep on doing that but for gosh sakes, you are SOOO much better than using overused music. I do hope your OD this year is as fun as your OD from last year though! That was great.
Angela: I would love to see her put it all together again in a season back like she did in the 00-01 season, and its my greatest wish for her to medal again at Nats so she can go back to Worlds. She's still got the the goods, don't let her performances fool you because its all still there. She just needs to believe in herself more this year. :D
I think that's it for now, I could go on all day about this particular topic, but these are my biggest wishes. :D
