Tai's words of wisdom
- Bravo, Tai! Thank you for taking the time to address this situation. You and Randy are one of my all-time favorite pairs. No one has ever skated as the two of you skated. It was powerful, breath-taking, and exquisite. You brought so much joy into my life (and some tears, as well). Pairs is my favorite discipline in skating. While I respect and applaud our recent US pairs and their accomplishments, something is definitely missing and amiss. I believe you have put your finger on it, Tai, in your focused and knowledgeable comments here. As a fifty-year devotee of figure skating and a fan who has attended many a competition, I encourage the powers that be at US Figure Skating to heed Tai's words of wisdom.
