But on to other news….

Tony Chung has been great on keeping us unfortunate souls who can’t make it to the competitions updated with tweets and WOW! …can you imagine???…VIDEO! Actual live moving pictures!

But that costs money.
Lest Tony think we don’t appreciate, love and adore him, please go to his site and donate whatever you can to keep these little pieces of heaven available to us.

Thank you Tony!

And here’s the link (FYI- note that Internet ‘Exploder’…er, I mean Explorer, is testy with this page, so I recommend you choose a different browser when accessing it):

ALSO: Anthony Lobello made another National Team, and his friends set up a donation page for him.

Here’s the link so you can help Anthony keep doing that thing he does:

…and Anthony, you might want to get this link set up permanently on your Facebook page…(or gasp!)…consider attaching a fanpage there too! It’s super easy – and free! (Hey, just sayin’…)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
.
AND…you can go to the Boots and Blades Forum for more info on this weekends races and information on all the skaters.
(…for which the link isn’t working for me at the moment…must be a proboards thing…)

Sunday’s Results

Congratulations to both Jeff Simon and Katherine Reutter on winning the National Title. You Rock!

Congrats to Sarah Chen and Jonathan Garcia for making the National Team for the first time. (my understanding is that the 5th spot is discretionary on the part of the coaches)

Congrats to the other skaters that made the National Team:
Simon Cho, Travis Jayner, Anthony Lobello, Lana Gehring, Jessica Smith and Emily Scott.

Quick recoveries to Aly Dudek and Landon Hatfield. (Landon, that was mighty scary. Glad you’re OK)

The men’s 3000m was a wild ride, and if I could find results anywhere for either the ladies or men, I’d post ‘em. Kyle Carr, Simon Cho, Travis Jayner and Ryan Bedford all took a tumble, leaving the door open for Anthony Lobello and two other skaters (Jonathan Garcia and Kyle Uyehara perhaps?)

This apparently isn’t for points, but it would be nice to give the skaters who did this grueling long distance race their due.

Just sayin’…

For more results, go here to the USS site:

Anyway…Congrats to all the skaters wherever they placed. Watching you skate is always a thrill. Safe travels to all, and to all, a Happy Holiday Season with your family and friends.

Congrats to Jessica Smith, Wow! to Sarah Chen, Oops for Katherine Reutter and Ouch for Alyson Dudek.

Aly suffered a horrible fall and it looked like she had a very ‘Close Encounter of the Sharp Kind’ with Katherine’s blade, which sent her a tumbling down too. Rumor has it Aly dislocated her shoulder….which is why she didn’t finish.
Hope all is well, Aly.
