We watched the 2013 United States Figure Skating Championships on the National Broadcasting Company. Who knew they even covered skating anymore?
The competition turns into a game of Whereâ€™s Denney and Couglin and Rockne and Parnter X? Castelli and Shnapir, Zhang and Bartholomay, and Scimeca and Knierim skate inbetween stretching sessions.
NBC brings over Mike â€˜Docâ€™ Emrick from NHL coverage because, you know, both sports use skates. Did the Peacock lose Terry Gannonâ€™s phone number?
Gracie Gold makes a comeback. Ashley Wagner falls to the top. Agnes Zawadzki slows it down. Courtney Hicks brings back some memories. Christina Gao flails and tangos. Mirai Nagasu under-rotates. Tori misses The Pearl and so does Caroline Zhang.
Jeremy Abbott makes us cry again. Adam Rippon leaves the Blue Lagoon. Evan couldnâ€™t make it, so Jonathan Cassar steps in. Jason Brown needs to get in a new Outfit. Ross Miner has a quad or whatever. Max Aaron revs up the backloader. Keegan Messing, Brandon Mroz, Stephen Carriere, and Armin Mahbanoozadeh all surprise usâ€¦ by simply being there. Richard Dornbush has us reaching for the remote. Joshua Farris joins the seniors.
The 2013 European Figure Skating Championships were held at the same time, with a mixed bag of results.
