This and That




Stars On Ice announced its schedule for its 25th anniversary tour. They are announcing cast members a few at a time. Many others are confirmed but not announced yet. Sasha Cohen and Evan Lysacek are scheduled to appear in every city. I have a wink wink thought that our favorite ice dancer, Ms. Tanith Belbin, will be coming to a city near you. Given that SOI is produced by IMG, we should expect to see Meryl and Charlie on tour after Worlds.

Ginger Jackson skated quite well at Southwest Pacific Regionals

Short


Long


Vanessa Lam leads after the short at the JGP Ostrava . Polina Shelepen is in second and is 2 1/2 points back. Kiri Baga is in third.

An American Pair, Ashley Cain and Joshua Reagan, lead after the short. This is a moment we should all carry with us for a long time, as it is unlikely to ever happen again.


Alabama really wants to prove to us that they've been working out. They posted another training video. This one shows some bars and tumbling.

  2. Yay Terry Gannon. Boo Michael Weiss. I enjoy his skating better than his commentary. And that's not saying a whole hell of a lot.

    LOL. I am cracking up. Granted, they are only in the lead by about .000034, but it's a true miracle when a US pair is in podium contention at a Junior Grand Prix. If they manage to win, it would be the first US win on the JGP in like four years.

  4. Must we listen to Tara's annoying voice and lame cookie-cutter comments for all those broadcasts? I would think she could give us all a break and only do like... one event? uggg...

  5. I don't get what the "wink-wink thought" means in regards to Tanith Belbin. Do I just need more coffee?
