Watching US Nationals ladies SP. I have to say, keeping an eye on the comments, people can be such jerks. Please, please, please think about what you're going to say before calling someone an ugly name, insulting their costumes or their body, or making assumptions on their life, family, social skills, or personality based on a three to four minute program. How dare you belittle all the hard work and effort these people put into getting where they are today? How can you just assume that you know as much about figure skating as they do? We're athletes. But we're also people - we're just people trying to do something that's pretty hard. Sometimes, we train and train all year, and the moment comes and because something's just not right, it's all over. And then we pick up the pieces of our failure, stick them back together and build something stronger. A lot of the athletes competing in this ladies SP have such amazing comeback stories - some of them unknown, untold, but deserving of admiration nonetheless. So please watch your words and respect these athletes. Thank you. Rant over.
