All Hail Queen Gracie
Honestly….who cares what the score was? Everyone knows Nationals scores are overinflated. They do not count for anything at all. They do not count for world standings points, they don’t even count for assignments or byes for next year. Placements do. So let them get 500, who cares?Amazing skate but really - American home cooking. THe score was gratutiouts and unnecessary especially in light their biggest threat is injured and the Italians are too boring to be a real threat and Gibson and FEar too far down and the Danadians are likely to make a mistake. The scoring here is ridiculous. Chock and Bate are not PC, are not Davis and White and not V and M or even Klimova and Ponomarenko or Usova and Zhulin or Krylova and Oksiankov or ... Scoring over 135 is just uncalled for, unwarranted and undeserved.
I feel your..irritation? Anger? I just don’t understand it. Everyone knows that nationals scores of all nations don’t have much if any grounding in reality.
