Naked Ice is Taking a Break!

Hi all!

After giving it lots of thought I've made the decision to take a break from my blog for this season.  I'm not sure if I'll take the Grand Prix off and pick it back up for nationals, or if I'll take the entire season off and come back to blogging full-time next season.  As of now, it's an indefinite break.

I will, of course, continue to follow the season as I always do--the only difference is I won't be talking about it at length here on my blog.  However, I will be around on the forums and I'll give my quick thoughts on Twitter too, so make sure to follow me if you don't already (@NakedIceBlog).

Thank you so much to everyone who has continued to check in over the years.  I'll be back, I promise!

2017-2018 Off Season Fun: Top 5 Favorites From the Past 4 Seasons (2014-2018)

I'm going to wrap up the 2017-2018 Off Season Fun with a look back at the past four seasons.  There have been so many amazing moments over the past four years but I've narrowed it down to my top 5 favorite things from each season.

5. Samantha Cesario's "Carmen" FS

"Carmen" is so overused but Sammie's amazing program breathed new life into this battered old warhorse.  This is my all-time favorite "Carmen" program.

2018 World Championships: Preview

The 2018 World Championships are just a few days away.  Post-Olympic Worlds are a good place for those who struggled at the Olympics to have a shot at redemption and for new talent to stake their claim for the coming quad.  Here's a quick look at who we'll see this week...

2018 Pyeongchang Olympics: Review

I don't know about you but I am officially wiped out.  I didn't think it was possible to have a figure skating overload but that's where I am.  It's been two weeks of basically nonstop skating and I watched about 90% of it.  Thus, I am burned out.  So rather than my usual in-depth review, I'm just giving my overall thoughts about each skater.
