At one point Rockne was spotted having a tryout with Sasha Cohen and the Internet went slightly abuzz for a day or two but then it quietly simmered down again.
Well, if the little birdies in my ear are correct, it appears Rockne has found a new partner in 2009 U.S. Novice Ladies Silver Medalist Mary Beth Marley. She, like Sasha, was spotted having a tryout with Rockne and it appears a decision has been made.
I had never seen her before so I had to look her up on YouTube and she is a little spit-fire...seemingly fearless (see video below).
Is a new partnership born? No official announcement yet but I'm willing to bet it's quickly down the pike. If they are going to compete this season they need to register for sectionals by September 1st...that would be Wednesday. Fingers crossed Rockne has found "the one." I'd hate to see him get stuck with another, as a fellow blogger once put it, "head case sent from above."
