Last night was pretty boring. Sat next to a bitch that kept crossing her legs and kicking my niece so we switched seats and then did it to me. Dirty looks made no impression so I hope the gum I put under her seat somehow ended up on her shoe:) Okay I didn’t do that but I did think about doing it.
Saw Kimmie Messiner on the way out. She and about half a dozen guys that were probably old skaters I just didn’t care to notice who they were pushed their way out of the “Fleetcenter” like they owned the place. Kimmie was very loud too like she was trying to get noticed because I heard her way before I saw her.
They gave some kind of award to Michelle which was of course no where near my seat. Found Aunt Joyce in the crowd with a loud red sweater taking notes.
Overall everyone skated well enough with only a few falls. Rachael Flatt hit jump after jump in the warm up stepping out of only one (almost fell) but she messed up come the actual competition. Her dress was really pretty but you could tell there was no way they were letting her or Caroline Zhang near the front of the pack even if they were clean.
Gracie Gold is as frumpy a skater in person as she is on TV. She did a great job with the jumps but a 73 is a travesty of a score. Nagasu was great last night. Only true standing ovation of the night. The whole crowd was ready to stand up the second she finished her last jump. I still can’t figure out what the judges were thinking when they gave Polina Edmonds second place. Fish out of water. Nice to see Agnes Zawadzki finally get the scores she deserves. She wasn’t held up last night. Its about time. One little girl reminded me of Sasha Cohen (looks wise) I forget her name. I heard Ashley Cain was a horrible skater before I saw her skate last night and she wasn’t nearly as bad as I had heard. Yasmin Siraj was a total melt down last night. I remember her from last year where she did a great short but she was in last place last night. Thought Barbie Long was a bit underscored. Before Nagasu it was the only program I actually watched without looking at the clock to check the time. and last was Ashley who was not impressive last night. There was no connection to the music at all. She wasn’t overscored per say but she needs to step it up because it looks like USFSA wants to promote the jumping beans again. I can’t see them leaving her home from the Olympics because she easily deserves the spot due to the last 2 years where she held this program together.
Joe Inman is still judging? He is judge number 3. I expect to get a picture of him to slam his ass on this blog for the future.

I don’t believe for a second these things are randomly drawn. What a coinkydinky that the ones in the hunt all skate right around each other. You can tell who USFSA.org doesn’t want on this team. Might as well have stayed home 1-12
