Since we have a way to go until Worlds how about a little fun to keep us busy? Be creative and try to imagine what our favorite skaters were thinking as they skated in Portland. No bashing just some good natured fun a kind of written caricature of the skaters we love. I'll go first.
The Sasha Free Skate Time Line
(as she leaves the boards and takes her starting position): " Mr. Nicks is a genious, why did I ever leave him?"
(her music begins): "In 4 minutes I will be Sasha Cohen U.S. Ladies National Champion!"
(30 seconds into program): "Win this one, then Worlds and it will be move over Sarah Hughes Stars On Ice meet your new headliner!"
(1 minute);Touches down on jump. "I don't think anyone saw that."
(2 minutes): Falls. "Darn this Robin Wagner choreography! Kwan can't always be perfect so if she messes up were even."
(2 minutes 30 seconds): "Dick and Peggy shut the f*** up can't you see I'm trying to concentrate?"
(3 minutes): Begins spiral. "Kimmie might have a triple axle but she can't do this!"
(4 minutes): "Why is the crowd not on their feet? I guess I'll have to beaver cleaver them."
(back at the kiss and cry): scores come up "Where in the heck are MY 6.0s?" Nicks tries to console her "Get away from me old man!"
(back stage) talking on cell phone "Mom, Richard Callaghan is available, pack our bags we're moving to Detroit!"
