    Sasha Cohen's Journal Updates

    Here's a link to the journal updates from Sasha Cohen's official website. The latest entry was made on February 13, so it's a "real" update.

    I think the tribute she wrote for Angela Nikodinov and her mother, in her write-up on Nationals, was quite lovely.

    Red Dog, Sasha writes in her journal to keep in touch with her fans. If you're not interested in what she has to say, don't read it! So that it won't be the same old same old! Give the girl a break!

    That was kind of mean! RedDog is a Sasha fan and often will post links to her journals on this site. Please don't be mean to him. He really does like Sasha. He's just in hiding about it. We love you RdDog!

    Wow, I was just expressing a thought...I wasn't intending to ruffle any feathers here...


    that said,in my opinion she DOES tend to write the same old and go over the top in her comments...

    If you insist, check this one out:

    Looks like certain posters apparently MUST label people fans of a skater to make themselves and THEIR favorites look better. Will this never end? Maybe it's just wishful thinking. Then again, it probably is. :sheesh:

    Oh yeah, I don't need you to stand up for me, I can stand up for myself...

    Calm down Reddog. I don't understand you're post, but can tell you're mad. I still like you as a fun poster.

    Alrighty then, I'll break it down for you in simple words. I AM A NON-FAN, MEANING I AM NOT A FAN OF ANY PARTICULAR SKATER, ALRIGHT?

    (Sorry to yell, but I'm really tired of this.)

    Red Dog, please accept my appoligies . On one hand I was upset with you for being negative about Sasha's journal and then I turned around and said negative things to you.

    Same old, same old

    Actually, for Sasha, "same old, same old..." would be a very good thing---same old training, same old daily run throughs of her programs, same old, same old consistency in training. It's very difficult to train at such a high level so consistently, and that is what will make great competitive performances.

    Train, train, train, all to meet in less than 4 weeks in Moscow.

    My own opinion about Journals and it is not exclusive to Sasha is that the skaters really have nothing to say. They are much too involved in skating and their families, their coaches, their choreographers, and anything else relating to skating. Not at all about the outside world. And somehow I believe little of what they are saying. It is more than likely, imo, that someone else does the writing and she approves or her family approves.

    Sasha and other skaters have a one thing purpose in life at a young age.

    I don't believe Sasha even writes what you see in her journal. I think it's a product of her PR team.

    Well, joesitz, you can't say that! She adopted a Soldier, went to a birthday party for twins, went to see a couple of movies and her sister visitied. So must be something other than skating that she's doing.

    I like reading the journal entries. I think they're in some respects and informative in others. Good for her for doing it whether she writes them or not. We don't know that either. But good on her!

    I think skaters, whether it is Sasha, Alexei, Johnny or any other that keeps a journal on their website, I think they do write their own entries. I've read in interviews in the skating magazines, in the case of Sasha (which was the one that had an interview some issues ago) that she sends her entries to the webmaster that updates the site, and they post it. The entry seems normal to me, just to keep the people visiting the site informed on what she has been doing lately. I don't expect to read anything that is more personal on anybody's journal, especially when they are on-line . If we are not to believe what the skater wrote, then who are we to believe? Anyway, it's nice to read what they are up to.
