What is U.S. Figure Skating up to? I want to know!
Is anyone else annoyingly intrigued with the fact that they left a mystery opening at Skate America for the ladies? Why would they do that? Why?
Sasha Cohen goes...sure. Flatt makes sense. But they could have easily put Caroline Zhang there, or Ashley Wagner, or how about the National Champ, Alissa Czisny! But they didn't, they spread the top U.S. talent out to other Grand Prix Assignments. Why leave the line-up for the biggest international competition the U.S. will host this season a mystery? Why, why, why?
My instant thought, but I caution myself that there is a good chance I'm getting way ahead of myself here and totally off-base, is that they are saving that spot for Michelle Kwan. That she's talked with U.S. Figure Skating, stated that she would like to compete there, but doesn't want to commit herself to the return just yet. A little more quiet training time. But that's probably not what's going on...right?
I'll be very interested to see who gets that TBD spot. I'm watching with much anticipation
