This and That
Gracie Gold won the short at the JGP Talinn Cup.
Marlie announced that they changed their free dance from La Strada to Die Fledermaus. I respect them for doing something out of the typical Marlie realm, but I was okay with them not taking a huge risk in the free dance since this since Meryl channeling J Lo has everyone on edge for good reason. That said, I was really looking for to a gorgeous patented Marlie program to La Strada. I can't handle Die Fledermaus after wearing out my tape of the 1996 Olympics during my youth. It is still far too soon. I couldn't even handle the music when Yu-Na Kim skated to it.
Julianne Hough's Footloose received an 'A-' from Entertainment Weekly. That is impressive from a magazine that hates almost everything.
Courtney Hicks underwent surgery yesterday and will be out for the season.
Youtube Sensation Starr Andrews competed at SWP Regionals in the Pre-Preliminary category. I prefer her whipping her hair, but it is awesome to see her skate again.
Risa Shoji is currently second at the JGP Talinn Cup.
Samantha Cesario is currently third at the JGP Talinn Cup.
