U.S. skating hopes take a tumble

There are 6 comments on the Chicago Tribune story from Mar 13, 2008, titled U.S. skating hopes take a tumble. In it, Chicago Tribune reports that:

“I had been slipping on easier things, so I was taking it slowly, but I realized if I wanted to get to worlds, I had to settle on one set of blades and try everything.”

A quarter-inch-wide blade is having much larger ramifications for U.S. figure skating champion Evan Lysacek and his compatriots. via Chicago Tribune

I find your comments uncalled for.
Who are you to know what the outcome will be. How dare you, Kimmie, and Johnny will be fine. Your prayers should be that Evan heals fast, not predicting how bad we are going to at "Worlds" . That is so un American.
I can't wait to see your collumn when Kimmie and Johnny prove you wrong.
You are being a spoil sport, and party pooper. Stop raining on their parade. You need to learn to skate, and see how hard a task it is!

Hi Sk8r girl, Phil Hersh doesn't know much about skating. I believe with all the training Johnny has been having with Galina, he will do well at Worlds. Kimmie may too, she changed coaches and I think Richard Callaghan is terrific. He was Todd Eldredge's coach during Todd's entire amateur career.

It's not a quarter-inch blade - it's an eighth of an inch.
