    Fine skate for Jordan Brauninger!

    But one thing puzzles me. Why would he "suddenly realize" that a 3A/3T and a 3Z/3T added up to two 3T's already, so he couldn't do another one? Don't skaters plan out their jumps in advance?

    Excellent job, Rosaleen. Love your reports

    I guess everyone in the Junior mens circuit must really love "Pirates of the Caribbean"; I counted about 4 or 5 men who skated to the soundtrack, some even right after each other! I would have slowly gone crazy

    That would have been the same season (00-01) that half the men used Gladiator, as well as one dance couple and one or two pairs. Also popular that year was Xotica by Rene Dupere, which popped up pretty much everywhere about every 4th program or so.
