Both the men's and ladies' events were pretty forgettable. More memorable was the fantastic lemon and cucumber water in the lobby of the Hilton hotel. I'd never seen anything like that offered in a lobby before, and since then there's been flavored water at almost every hotel I've stayed. Must be a new fad!
Thanks so much for travelling down Skate America memory lane with me! I'll be in Kent, Washington starting October 17 to cover all the action at this year's event! I'm particularly excited that Jeremy Abbott has FINALLY been assigned to Skate America. The ice dance competition is going to be fantastic, and pairs is going to have me chewing my nails as two of my favorite teams - Marissa Castelli/Simon Shnapir and Gretchen Donlan/Andrew Speroff - will be competing.
Between now and then, be sure to stop by on October 10 to get some scoop on Edge of the Past, the upcoming sequel to Life on the Edge!!!!
