Two events this week: the fourth event in the JGP series, JGP Nagoya TV Cup, and the 2014 US International Skating Classic.  I'll take a look at the JGP event first (as well as the standings so far) and then give my thoughts on the ladies from the Classic.

The JGP season has officially started!  There were a few surprises at the opening event of the 2014-2015 JGP season but overall, I was not shocked with the results.

Off Season Fun 2013-2014: Top 5 Favorites From the Past 4 Years (2010-2014)

Off Season Fun continues with me attempting the impossible! Okay, I'm exaggerating but still, attempting to condense four long years of skating down to only five favorite things per season wasn't an easy task.  So much has happened over the last quad but these are the things I will remember the most.

Off Season Fun 2013-2014: Favorite Free Skates

Off Season Fun pushes onward! I usually love this part of OSF, but I found myself struggling to complete my favorite FS list this year.  To be honest, none of the top skaters' programs stood out to me this Olympic season.  Everyone had good programs but I think nearly all of them had better programs last season.  As a result, I have a shorter list of favorites this year and then quite a few several honorable mentions.
