The 2012 United States Figure Skating Championships – Part 1

The Ice Queens recording session

The Ice Queens preparing to podcast

We’re at the U.S. Nationals in San Jose, California, and we’ve got the bar tabs to prove it. If we’re a little hard to hear, it’s because we’re podcasting from the McCormick & Schmick’s across from the Fairmont Hotel, and we’re not going to let a little thing like room noise get in the way of us getting our drinks. But enough about us. Let’s talk about some American skaters!

First up:

The Men

We missed the Men’s short competition because we decided to see Shame instead. We have our priorities. Plus, we had to deal with the bad news about Evgeni Plushenko and Artur Gachinski.


Ice Dancing

Featuring Cannuscio and McManus, Chock and Bates, Kriengkrairut and Giulietti-Schmitt, Hubbell and Donohue, Shibutani and Shibutani, and Davis and White.
