More from Nationals

Oh this is embarrassing. I can't remember what order the events at Nationals took place in. That's what happens when you're still writing up reports a month later!

Ladies SP:

1. Actually ran into Frank AND Igor the day of the ladies SP so it was apparently Awesome Coach Day.

2. I also saw Morozov quite a lot around this time. I'm a blonde ice dancer. You might see how this is kind of disturbing to me. Etan made a lot of "HIDE, IT'S MOROZOV!" jokes.

3. Mirai's music makes my ears bleed. And she was way overscored. She's very cute though.

4. Uh, I may have actually laughed out loud at Caroline Zhang's placement.

5. I was very confused about the Caroline/Bebe scoring thing. Bzuh.

6. These girls are so young and gawky and unfortunate to watch.

7. I wanted to like Katrina Whatever Her Last Name Is because hi name buddy, but alas, she was a snoozer.

8. Oh Kimmie Meissner, what has happened to you? Her dress was pretty at least.

9. I swear that I had intelligent thoughts, compliments, and criticisms of the skating at the time.

10. I was impressed with Ashley Wagner. I thought her skating was powerful and interesting and not princessy which is always a plus. I liked her for a lot of the same reasons I like Bebe.

11. The amount of technique issues these girls have makes me sad.

12. Kimmie got mobbed after this event.


Pairs LP? That sounds right.

1. The final flight was exciting and that means the apocalypse is nearing.

2. One of my strongest impressions was from Evora and Ladwig, who had to fight through their performance but I enjoyed anyway. There was one lift of theirs that I couldn't watch though. It was scary.

3. McLaughlin and Brubaker are a pair to watch, for sure. It might be too early to say that they could break the US pairs tradition, but there's hope I think. She could outgrow him though.

4. Castile and Okolski's program made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Holy crap. Marina Zueva (I completely blanked on her last name, what the fuck. I had to wiki it) is a goddess.

5. Inoue and Baldwin kind of looked like crap to me. I would have given them the bronze. They were sloooooooooooow.

6. I can't decide if John proposing was cute or tacky. I'm thinking it would have been cute if it had been someone else (think Hongbo Zhao), but it was tacky because it was John.

7. Rena seemed really uncomfortable.

8. As I mentioned before, I usually find pairs to be sinfully boring but when I actually watch them and like them it's mostly terrifying. So much can go wrong in pairs.

I could barely watch that E&L lift on TV, so I can only imagine what it was like in person. Eeeeep.

Hahahaha, I think you nailed it.

I find it amusing that a renowned pairs-hater such as yourself seemed to have really enjoyed the pairs. And US PAIRS, at that!
