Did you miss Worlds?

Like I did!

Is it just me or does it seem like figure skating has lost some of its luster. The World Championships used to be all over tv promos and newspapers before, during and after the competition.

This time I had to hit the internet to find the results. It probably doesn't help that only one American was standing on the podium. Perhaps the papers in Johnny Wier's hometown put him on the front page. Maybe the front page of the Sports section.

But I predict that by the time the Winter Olympics roll around, the press will be pumping up at least one American in the Ladies category to crown as the next skating princess.

We'll have to wait and see.

It was kind of like we sent part of our B team to Worlds this year so it didn't get quite the hype.

Also, ESPN/ABC didn't put a lot of effort into promoting the event since this was there last broadcast :-(
